42 Years Ago…

my parents stood in my grandparent’s backyard in front of their friends and family and vowed til death did them part and all that mushy stuff.

The photos on the left were taken on that day in 1970.  Photo on the right was taken by me this past June.

Still in love <3  Happy Anniversary to my wonderful parents!

Maui Anniversary Session – {Clayton + Jen}

I posted an Anniversary session a few months back and Jen posted on my Facebook that she loved the idea!  After a little bit of chatting, we realized we would be in Maui at the same time – one year after they got married!  It was fate.  We stopped at some gorgeous spots around the island and celebrated their last year of bliss!

Irish American Heritage Center Wedding – Chicago, IL – {Evan + Grace}

Evan + Grace’s Chicago wedding was so fun and unique!  Just like the two of them!  Evan is a rad photographer and Grace is a former roller derby girl!  Grace and I were friends in College when we worked on the newspaper together for years.  I was stoked when she thought of me for her wedding!  I flew out to Chicago for their Cinco de Mayo wedding with the threat of rainstorms all weekend.  The weather-people were not incorrect!  A few rain dances later and we luckily had gorgeous overcast weather their entire wedding day!

Their first look was so expressive, I couldn’t narrow down which images to include!  They were the first bride & groom I’ve ever heard of that wanted their photos on The “El” and on the lawn of an awesome birdhouse house!  They were totally up for anything and I love that.  Another first:  The Jurassic Park theme song for the father/daughter dance.  Rad rad rad.  Enjoy the image overload!

San Diego Courthouse Wedding – {Andy + Lindsay}

Lindsay contacted me about her San Diego Courthouse wedding a few weeks prior to the date.  I didn’t know anything about their story but they were visiting San Diego on vacation from Kansas!  What a cool memory to make on vacation.  After 8 years together, many moves they said “I Do” in front of one of their closest friends.  It was a short, sweet and meaningful ceremony. Congrats you two!
