We received Amanda’s first inquiry on September 6th at 10:40pm, which Amanda later told us was approximately 15 minutes after browsing the DISboards. Another bride had mentioned she was hoping to get married in early December 2015. Amanda knew she needed to lock us in for her wedding date and wrote without first telling Jeff- (Thank you random Disney bride!)

They’re both cast members (Jeff even works in my old work home!), are self-proclaimed Disney nerds, love Disneyland more than the Magic Kingdom, and are hoping for a winter wedding theme. So basically we had absolutely nothing to talk about and the session was totally awkward and I didn’t leave kicking myself for not inviting them to Epcot for dinner with us after! ;)

Amanda and Jeff, thank you so much for being so wonderful and easy to photograph. I genuinely look forward to your wedding but hope to see you again before then! :)

I can’t believe we just photographed our last Disney wedding of the year! :(

Disney Epcot Japan Pavilion Wedding

Tiffiny, you’re gorgeous.

These guys had so many personal touches to their day, my favorite being an “ear exchange” after their ring exchange. :)

Disney Epcot American Pavilion Wedding

Rain caused these guys to move their ceremony to a backup location, but with a backup location like this, how can you complain?!

This turtle kindly waited until Nate had his camera settings juuuust right to make an appearance. :)

One of my favorites of the whole year- What a way to wrap up 2014!! Tiffiny and Mitch, have a great rest of your honeymoon and we’ll be in touch with the rest next year! <3

We knew shortly after Huck’s attack that it wasn’t a matter of *if* his little blind eye would have to be removed, but *when.* We were instructed to watch it closely and see if he started pawing at it to show that it bothered him, and for the past few years, there was no issue. But after a couple occurrences this year of it turning blood red when he’d get worked up about something, it really started to make me uncomfortable. After a quick reassurance from our trusted vet that the procedure is not only ridiculously simple, but the healing process is too, we decided to make it happen. So while Huck was out for a routine teeth cleaning we had our vet remove the eye, too.

I was amazed at how quickly Huck was back to his normal, sassy self, and how quickly he healed- Huck didn’t even need a cone!

So today, our little Huckleupagus turns 10. A decade! He’s been with me for the entirety of my adult life, and I can’t imagine any other dog putting up with our long work hours and crazy travel schedule the past four years have brought. Yes, he’s a bit of a loner, but puts up with my Elvira-level of cuddling and always reminds us to feed him when we’re clocking long days in the office. :)

Huckleberry Finn, I don’t care if this post makes the world cringe or if the neighbors raised their brows when we did a little photo shoot with you and a giant Mike Wazowski balloon in the front yard. We love you too, too much and are so thankful for the joy you’ve brought to our lives. And since you can’t read and don’t know what “birthday” means, I’ll just give you extra snuggles and a couple marshmallows. :) HAPPY TEN!

Happy birthday, Huck Finn!

Happy birthday, Huck Finn! Happy birthday, Huck Finn!

Once upon a time, my college roommate got married in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee. It was amazing and magical and one of my top 3 all time favorite weddings… And then I never blogged it. This was two years ago, you guys. *facepalm.*

You can click here for a refresher on their engagement session which included, but wasn’t limited to: Hay bail jumping, horse kisses, and sunset photos like this one. <3

But today’s the day- I refuse to let 2015 arrive without sharing this wedding goodness with you, friend! Sarah and Zach were married at Sarah’s parents’ home outside of Franklin and man, oh man, do I wish I could photograph farm weddings every day. <3

First off- The details!

Tell me this isn’t the most perfect ceremony setting you’ve ever seen in your life. <3

I love when brides get ready in their family homes. That painting of little Sarah on the left? Perfection.

I will (someday) do an entire blog post about this photo! Sarah is the most beautiful, easy-going person you can imagine and just told her girls to find a gray dress they felt pretty in. I looooooove how that turned out and how different everyone looked- No bride approval needed, no complaining bridesmaids, and such a cool modern take on a bridal party. Take notes, brides! *Swoooooon!*

He ran up during the group photos and Sarah bent down without us asking to say hello and it was magical. :)
