Michelle & Ben’s Engagement

Posted in Engagements by Holly

We had a wonderful time doing Michelle and Ben’s engagement shoot. We went down to the beach and had a great time! They are so cute together and seem to truly enjoy one another’s company! We are really looking forward to photographing their wedding!

Right when we started the shoot, they had no problem “diving” right in!

A Great Celebration

Posted in Weddings by Holly

Holly has known Jessika’s family since she was about 5 years old and Donny was her youth pastor for several years when Jessika was in high school. So when Jessika called to say that she was getting married to Jeff, we couldn’t be happier for her! Jessika and Jeff are a wonderful couple with an amazing story of how they met and fell in love! It is an awesome testimony of how God had been working “behind the scenes” to bring these two together. Their wedding day was filled with joy and excitement for the happy couple! We had such a great time taking their photos and couldn’t wait to share them!

Jessika’s “something borrowed” was very special — her grandmothers’ jewelry!

The ceremony and reception were both held at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center. We love shooting here as they are very accomodating and the grounds are beautiful.

How fun it is to see these photos! I love that I could see the start to finish of them. You guys rock! Holly I love how you see things, thanks for letting me tag along with you and Donny I love how you’ll do anything for the great shots even if it means laying on the grass and having toy cars in your hair :)

[...] could have spotted this purse a mile away.  This is the same purse that was used in Jessika & Jeff’s wedding that we shot in 2007.  It was Jessika & Erika’s grandmother’s [...]
