Justin and Tiffany McVay

I have photographed a lot of families over the years, and each family touches a place in my heart for different reasons.  I met Staci a few years ago; she wanted me to photograph her entire family while they were all visiting for Christmas.  They have 5 grown boys-some married with kids of their own so this really was an epic moment-this was the first time she called me.    

Fast forward a few years and I get another excited call from Staci.  Justin who is in the military will be deploying again soon.  Justin, his wife Tiffany and their two beautiful kids are in town visiting before he heads out.  After a small intimate wedding years ago, a vow renewal was very important to them and their family.  On his parents land, they said "I Do" once again.  Tiffany was so excited as she took her wedding dress out of the bag; she explained that this was really her first dress ever.  New dress, new rings, same commitment and deep love for Justin.  

James and Harriet

I met Harriet when we realized that our daughters were the very best of friends.  We hadn't realized the girls depended on each other so much, but they were tight.  Like peanut butter and jelly tight!  Harriet and I became Facebook friends, and because the girls went to the same school, we kept in touch, shared funny stories about their latest exploits (they were both 4 at the time and had life figured out).  Harriet mentioned that she was getting married last year and I asked if she had a photographer, and well.  The rest is history.   Like all of the couples I am honored to photograph, you can instantly tell that James and Harriet are meant to be; they play off of each other and honestly- they didn't even realize I was there half the time.  That is exactly how I want any portrait session to be.  Effortless, easy, comfortable. 

After the engagement engagement session, the excitement for their wedding day began to build.  On March 30th, two wonderful souls became one.  Set on a beautiful piece of property right outside of the city- the most wonderful images were captured.
