Trust. It’s truly the very best thing you could give to your photographer (or pretty much any professional wedding vendor!). Hire your photographer because you trust them: their vision, their art, their passion, and their ability. ✨
And arguably, one of the worst things you could do is put them in a box. Mold them into something they are not. 🥀
The wedding industry is over-saturated with wedding photographers and the good news? It means YOU get to choose exactly the photographer whose images speak directly to YOU! They are out there! It’s possible to find the right fit for you - the right style AND personality in one package.💁🏼♀️ Never, ever settle. Not in love, not in your wedding day images.
This wedding day, left me speechless and in awe of God’s divine interruptions in our walk and plans, because He has far greater ones for us.
Alex and Kaitlyn Anne Yager are so genuinely sweet, and the most joyous people. Their original wedding day was interrupted by Hurricane Florence, leaving them with wedding plans that had little to no resemblance to their original plan. But the Lord is good and marriage is so much more than the big wedding plans, though they are so fun. They married on their original day, with only a few people in attendance, with drizzles of rain and only small gusts of wind. The Lord graciously opened doors for them to celebrate their wedding and for their sweet community to attend and promise to love them and hold them accountable to covenant they made before God.
It was a stunning day full of smiling so big until your cheeks hurt, sweet sisters and brothers in Christ lifting them up and complimenting them nonstop, and the most incredible dance moves. Then the most incredible speeches by two overly grateful, humble, God-fearing dads, each one overwhelmed that the Lord answered their prayers for a God-fearing spouse for their son and their daughter. I sat behind my camera with brimming tears and bright smile at just the small glimpse of such sweet walks of two individuals who were finally one walking an even sweeter, yet daunting walk together.
It’s days like these that I’m so thankful the Lord orchestrates, so we can see such bright, beaming glimpses of his beautiful nature and image. My heart is overjoyed that Anthony Michael Loveday and I got to serve and be apart of such a special day. The Lord is so good, especially when he interrupts our plans for far greater ones. We love you Yager’s!!
Always being reminded that nature is definitely therapy.. yesterday’s time spent with this beautiful couple and God’s creation was so needed. Looking forward to this coming weekend where we will be enjoying a little get-away with the fam. Stay tuned ✨

Pine trees and mountain air please! 😍
I got out of my car last night in the mountains for my shoot and took a couple of deep deep breaths. Best smell in the world! It’s like Christmas and adventure and camping and clean all wrapped up into one.

I love my little business for so many reasons, but one of the most meaningful pieces of my job is the connections it allows for. Serving and caring for a couple during one of the most exciting seasons of life is something I am grateful God has blessed me with the ability to do. It's even better when we become good friends in the process! Swipe to read about Natalie’s experience ➡️
