How cute are these two sisters? Their eyes + these spring colors go so well together! 🥰 We did this first pose with them a few months ago, and they’ve grown so much since then!! #JaynaBieryPhotography

When Diana and Walt’s best man, maid of honor and bride’s dad gave their speeches during their reception they had us all laughing, crying all the happy tears, and truly celebrated the love these two have shared. Plus a few embarrassing stories to keep them humble 😜

The reception just flies by. All the stress of the day has gone by and there’s just the joy that you are finally married to the person you love.

I loved getting to witness this quiet moment of Jake and Chelsea watching their guests arrive for the ceremony! •
This weekend was a dream! Couples like Dustin and Alisha are the reason we love what we do. We couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple or a more beautiful day! Have a blast in Maui, Mr. + Mrs. Etheridge 😍

When I saw Morgan’s ring, I was blown away!! I told Aaron that the detail he put in to designing this ring was so obvious and beautiful!
The whole time during our time together, Aaron kept making Morgan giggle and laugh. You can tell that their love story is so sweet and intimate with one another.
Today I’m tackling a ton of editing (these are always my Wednesday’s!), including Morgan & Aaron’s engagement shoot and all I can say is LOVE STORIES ARE THE BEST!
Happy Wednesday friends! • #elizabethhillphotography#ehpcouples#ehpweddings#ehprings
You better believe I’m going to be sharing this beautiful bride’s portraits now that her wedding day is over! 😍😍 I’ve been trying to focus on clean colors in my editing the past few weeks. Keeping my whites white and really pin pointing skin tones down to being very natural. It’s tricky but imo gives a timeless look to photos 🤗
The quiet moment that reminds you that love is such a beautiful story.
This girl is one of my summer interns, so you’ll see her all over my Instagram for weeks, but she’s got a beautiful love story with Lucas and she trusted me to capture it.
I never take that for granted and when I snapped this photo, I held my breath because I thought, “ this moment has been frozen in time and I can’t wait for her to see it.”
Feeling grateful this Tuesday for all the love stories that are waiting to be told. Each one is special and I love when couples forget I’m there and just focus on each other ❤️

Your wedding party does a lot of things on the wedding day but most of all they celebrate YOU TWO! •
Easily one of my favorite ceremonies to help document so far (rain and all). // Also, you know your husband has influenced your thinking when one of your first thoughts upon viewing the ceremony space was that it appeared to be something out of Tolkien’s depiction of The Shire (@johnkirk105k 😉). #kaylakirkphoto
Second shot for the best, @laurenwilliamsphoto

Do you ever just stare at a IG photo and try to decide on a cute, witty caption? And then you can’t - so you search your entire Pinterest board for a song lyric or inspirational quote? Yeah. That’s been me all evening 🤦🏼♀️ #happymonday

Matt + Breanna // I can't say enough wonderful things about these two and their loving family and friends. It poured (literally) nonstop on their wedding day, but so much warmth was felt and so much love was shared. It's just an amazing reminder that weddings don't have to go perfectly... to be perfect. 🖤
A major change happened today!
In case you missed it, my business is now Jayna Biery Photography. I married the love of my life a little over a month ago, and I am so excited to make this change in my business to reflect my new last name.
To celebrate, I'm having a wedding SALE for the rest of the month of May!
Any weddings booked between now and May 31st will receive 10% OFF their package price! YAY!
Here comes the new hashtag... #JaynaBieryPhotography
During ceremonies, the officiant always prefaces the exchanging of the rings by explaining its symbolism. “It is an eternal symbol of your love for your significant other. It is a circle. It has no beginning and no end. It is endless, like your endless & unconditional love for one another.” & that’s true! ⠀
You’ll have to be there for each other through the highs & the lows, the good days & the bad. The Game of Thrones binge watching marathons & the midday crippling depression naps. I’m no perfect lover, but neither are rings. Stones will fall out. The metal will tarnish. Repairs & cleanings will be made, but a promise is still a promise. ⠀
Yesterday I received some not so great news, and got a phone call from my wife. Those that are military spouses know that no news is good news, and that unexpected phone calls are never a good sign. Well, apparently Sam is just like a ring because she needs a repair here & there too😂 I probably won’t see her for awhile while she finishes physical therapy for her injury and modified training, but a promise is still a promise & I’ll be eagerly waiting until our little familia can be reunited💕

Happy 2nd wedding anniversary to two of my favorite people! Love you guys!!!
“She’s it. She’s the best of both world. She’s that independent, focused, ambitious queen. She’s a boss. She can handle her own. And she’s as Alpha as they come. But at the same time, she knows where to draw the line and be a woman. She has a soft, submissive side, with a heart of gold.” @jennaleigh_photo#mondaymotivation

To think, yesterday about this time, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Just minutes before Lauren + Josh’s ceremony, there was a torrential downpour. Lauren + Josh’s incredible venue + vendors jumped into gear and instantly dried off all of the seats so guests could sit down. Unfortunately another storm came through delaying the ceremony once again. After that storm passed, there was a VERY small window of time the ceremony could happen as planned. Every single vendor (and the entire @annesdalemansion staff) Lauren + Josh hired dropped everything and re-dried all of the chairs. Thankfully, Lauren + Josh’s ceremony was able to happen outside. As you all know, a severe storm swept through Memphis later in the evening, which cause a neighborhood power outage. While most brides would have turned into a puddle or had an epic meltdown, Lauren smiled, shrugged her shoulders, hugged Josh (who was equally unbothered by such circumstances) and genuinely enjoyed the rest of their evening. John and I left their wedding last night with full hearts, looked at each other and agreed we want to be more like them. So content, the happiness they both reflected came from the deepest part of their hearts, and it shined through even with no electricity. Thank you, Lauren and Josh for allowing us to be the lucky souls who got to spend such a special time in your lives with you. You two are actual goals.
An insane GIANT thank you to the following vendors who went above and beyond and wore so many hats yesterday:

Diana & Walt are MARRIED!!!! Yesterday was an absolutely amazing day. When I say I cried so many happy tears alongside these two's family & friends and laughed until my sides hurt, I am not exaggerating. Diana & Walt have been together for 9 years so everyone was excited to see this day finally arrive. From their precious first look, to vows that left everyone speechless, to dancing the night away, to speeches that spoke to the kindness and love of this couple, and the countless other wonderful moments - it truly was a perfect day. Congrats you guys! It was a joy to be a part of your day!! Vendors:
Venue: The Bridge at Chrisleigh Farm

There are so many things that I love about my job being, able to do what I love and still spend time with my little family is one of my favorites but being able to capture couples becoming a family of their own is another. ♥️

Cheers to another wedding day!🍾🥂🥃 I stayed up late editing sneaks for my engagement sessions, formatting cards, and packing gear; then my kids woke me up at the crack of dawn for their morning snack. Now I’ve locked myself in the bathroom checking for ticks (for the millionth time!) after today’s gorgeous ranch reception. ⠀
Weddings are my bread and butter but being a mom in these moments before I spend all day at a wedding really grounds me & reminds me of my calling. ⠀
So raise them high, because weddings are hard work, I’ve had a long day, & it’s five o clock somewhere, even if it’s 2am here!🤪 Salud!

One of the best parts about booking a longer wedding package? Having me in the bridal suite for a couple of hours to capture all sorts of moments between you and your girls as you get ready for the biggest day of your life. 💍💕👰🏼 #JaynaWatkinsPhotography

Late night post cause there is something currently in my heart.
I’m so stinking proud of every single photographer and/or small business owner that I follow. From those with years beyond experience, or the person who is just now starting. Like holy cow. I see you. I see your effort. I see you hustling. I see you carrying your business. I see every single small business owner trying to accomplish their goals.
I am so motivated and encouraged by every single account I follow. Comparison is nothing when you actually see the time, effort, and dedication that every single business owner is pouring into their work. Those late nights and countless hours don’t go unnoticed.
Thank you for your work. Thank you for effort. I see you.
// Our marriage problems are not really marriage problems. They are heart problems. They are God problems. Our lack of intimacy with God causes a void that we try to fill with the frailest of substitutes. Like wealth or pleasure. Like fame or respect. Like people. Like marriage. -Francis Chan // •
My sister and her man celebrated two years married this week! Something they seemed most shocked by, in conversation about their anniversary, was how quick it has felt. They talked about how many seasons have already come and gone in their 5+ years knowing one another, how weird it is living in the reality of what they had dreamed about while dating, and how deeply satisfying it is in marriage to get to know each other so fully that the only love left to give sometimes is from a place of sacrifice. They even joked about being sad that 2 years of (what they hope to be) 75 are already in the past!
I’m always learning from their relationship, as they model how fun and real and pure young love can really be when committed to the Lord, and was reminded by them this week that time flies — and that I need to stop dreaming away my current season for the next. If I believe what I say I do, that the Lord has purpose for my days, then I need to start intentionally finding my purpose in today and asking God for wisdom to walk well into whatever my tomorrow looks like. All that from love!! 🥰🙌

27 years today. 🌼 A benediction for this age: I want a big, beautiful, wide life. I want living to move me deeply, and I want to move others. I want to stay open to beauty in nature, in people, in words. I want to be soft time and time again even when I have hurt and been hurt. I want to wade out into the body of water that is joy and come out drenched in it.

How about a follow Friday?!? Well hi everyone! If you didn’t know, this is me! I have to first thank my dear friend Cassie of @thewarmtharoundyou for this photo of me :) So a few things about me that you may not know - I am a self declared goofball. I absolutely love to laugh and enjoy making those around me laugh. You will often find me telling a crazy story of something I’ve done or had happen. I absolutely love music. A nickname of mine in high school was jukebox because I was always singing something random. I love karaoke. I have a terrible sweet tooth. I want icing more than I want the cake. I am so grateful for all of the things God is allowing me to do. Life is really good. What is something you are thankful for?
