Nashville Wedding Photography ◦ CIRCA 2006 ◦ KATIE & JIM

I think it is so important to take time as people to reflect on where we have been, where we are and where we are going. In honor of that idea, I’m sharing a wedding today from September of 2006! Katie & Jim were married at a private family lodge on a gorgeous fall day over 3 years ago. I love looking at weddings from years ago because it reminds me of 2 things: First, the more we do something the better we get. I’m always striving to photograph the next wedding better than the last. Second, I want to tell the story of a wedding day in a classic, timeless way. I want my couples to look back on their wedding photos years later and still remember what that day felt like. A matchless moment in time. Truly timeless. 

Katie wore her mother’s veil. I love when things are passed down and bring a deeper meaning to the moment. 

Katie & Jim were married in front of a little pond surrounded by willow trees. I will never forget how beautiful the day was. 

Jim’s sister and father performed at the reception. It was such a touching moment.

We finally got a chance to try out one of our Christmas gifts, a juicer! For those new to the scene, my husband & I have been following the Body for Life lifestyle for a couple years now; working out 6 days a week, eating 5-6 small really healthy balanced meals a day and then Sunday is our day off to eat whatever & relax. So I’ll have to say that being raised in Iowa I was taught to like the basic vegetables, corn on the cob & green bean casserole. Those are vegetables, right? Okay, ya, so one of the things I have had to adjust to most is eating more vegetables. So in comes the Christmas gift, a juicer! This thing makes intaking celery possible because as a kid whenever we had Ants on a Log for snack I always picked off the raisins, licked the peanut butter off and threw away the celery. The recipe we tried tonight was 2 small apples, 3 full carrots (wash them but don’t peel) & 1 stalk of celery. It was surprisingly good and sure beat feeling like a cow chewing on grass to get my vegetables :)

Bahamas Wedding Photography ◦ Compass Point Beach Resort ◦ STEPHANIE & KELLY

I love this destination wedding – shot on location at Compass Point Beach Resort in Nassau, Bahamas – for so many reasons. Stephanie & Kelly were beautiful, sweet and so in love. The weather & the light on their wedding day was gorgeous. The setting was magical. Stephanie & Kelly’s friends & family came from all over to celebrate with them and made us feel like part of the family. And yes, the day after their wedding, they jumped into the ocean in their wedding clothes at sunrise. See the last photo for proof! So today I thought I would share their wedding with all of you beautiful people out there because it always makes me smile and is guaranteed to warm up any cold day.
