Meet Juliana and her fiance Ryan, who we first met a yearish ago at her sister Gina’s Disney wedding! :)

See, another one of Gina’s bridesmaids, her friend Valerie, was getting married and brought us up to New Jersey for her wedding. A week before we got there, though, Gina’s little sister happened to get engaged so things timed out perfectly for a session with them while we were there! :)

Four years ago tomorrow, our best friends exchanged vows under a magical acacia tree in Tanzania, Africa. We still haven’t gotten around to editing all of our trip photos- How sad is that?! Until I eventually do a week long blog dedication to our African adventure, you can relive Lorie and Jon’s love story through the blog links below. :) Happy 4th on the 4th, kids!!

I cannot believe that even though I was a Florida resident for nearly a decade, this was my first trip to the Florida Keys! Where roosters roam wild! ROOSTERS, YOU GUYS! :)

Michelle and Justin’s wedding was colorful and emotional and pretty much a photographer’s dream. So let’s look at some preview photos, shall we?

ROOSTERS! WILD ROOSTERS! Like they cock-a-doodle-doo and everything!

If you’ve ever seen our beautiful website or if you’re reading this post on our blog, you’re more familiar with this amazing family than you know! Meet Justin and Lu, the ridiculously talented (and adorable) faces behind our entire brand. Justin and Lu took our rag-tag website and branding and transformed it into the experience it is today. It’s been years since our re-design and I still smile when I see our website. Every now and then I find myself falling in love with our intro video all over again, and hovering my mouse over my photo on our “about” page to watch leaves fly. Or re-read Huck’s bio. I smile when I catch a glimpse of our embroidered logo on my camera strap when shooting a wedding. Justin and Lu truly transformed our business and are the best of the best- We’re just lucky enough that they picked us to be their wedding photographers almost five years ago! :)

I don’t have the words to describe how much I love these faces, so I’m just gonna say they truly make me feel Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! We’ve referred to them as “Julu” for years, and last year, they welcomed perfectly-named Julian into the world. Ever since we learned of Lu’s pregnancy, I knew she’d be giving birth to the coolest baby ever. When we learned Julian was a “he,” I couldn’t wait to buy his first pair of baby Converse!

Out of all of our friends, Julu are hands down the coolest. They’re the kind of people you want in your family so they have to hang out with you a few times a year, because you feel infinitely cooler and smarter and more creative just being around them. They’re also added to my list of friends that make me hate the layout of the United States, because clearly New York was placed way too far from Tennessee and Florida. :(

I was thrilled that our Toronto wedding last summer was just a short flight to NYC, which meant we’d be able to meet Mr. Julian for some photo time on our way home.

It’s impossible to pick favorite photos when it comes to this family, so just assume every single photo comes with a caption of “Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite! <3″ :)

Justin and Lu started a Facebook group before Julian was born, which was genius. I love the idea of not flooding someone I knew from 10th grade French with a gazillion photos of a someday kiddo. Anyway, this was their cute header from that page…

… And one of their ridiculously talented friends made these for them as a gift!
