Sarah and Michael met us in Celebration for a family session! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown by since their wedding.

Oh, Lugnut!!!! <3

Pug Family Session

Sarah and Michael love Lugnut like we love Huck. We often see/hear people talk about how your dog really becomes a “dog” once you become a parent, but I was thrilled to see that Lugnut is truly treated like their first child. <3

I love that we never know how our couples will find us.

Maybe it’s a phone call from my Mom to Capitol One Card Services that ends up in a session booking, and this time, it was a brief ride on a safari truck!

Yep-When we boarded our safari truck to photograph Jenna and Liam’s wedding portraits on the savannah, I was seated by Krista, the cast member assigned to our group. We made small talk on the brief ride to and from the savannah, and I found out Krista was newly engaged and likely planning a wedding up north. As I was getting off the truck, she asked for our card, and I assumed we’d never see each other again.

Just a couple months later and we got an email from Krista saying she and her fiance, Kenny, would be eloping at the Lake County Courthouse and wanted some portraits after their ceremony. There’s such a special energy associated with elopements and they’re my favorite thing to photograph, and always make me think of our wedding day. <3

Krista and Kenny, we had a wonderful time getting to know you both and wish you the happiest ever after! :)

And while I layed in a hospital bed catching up on Girl Meets World, Nate photographed Lindsay and Jackie’s dessert party solo and did AMAZING. If I didn’t love shooting these events so often, I’d make Nate go on his own from now on! :)

Continued from Lindsay and Jackie’s Engagement Session. <3

As you may remember from Lindsay and Jackie’s preview post, this wedding took place while I was in the hospital with a gallbladder attack. In nearly 10 years, this was the second wedding I ever missed! :( I think before we even called our parents, we were emailing Kim to see if she could step in while I was unavailable! Of course I’m super bummed I missed their day, but Nathanial did some of his best work and knowing Kim was there to help him out was the biggest relief!

I was about to start blogging Lindsay and Jackie’s wedding day when I realized I never posted their engagement session!

These two were engaged for nearly 3 years before starting to plan their Disney wedding. They’re from Texas, and have truly made it to the list of our all-time favorite couples. <3 We photographed their engagement session around the Wilderness Lodge. Enjoy, and come back later this week when I blog their wedding- It’s a two part-er! :)
