Kelly and Matt's Wedding

There are a lot of photos in this post, but it's just the way it has to be.

This.was.an.amazing.wedding.

We didn't know each other before we did their engagement session, but shooting Kelly and Matt's wedding was like being at a private outdoor concert with friends.  Only two people just happened to get married, and we just happened to document every incredible second.

First of all, if you're going to have your dog at your wedding, and she's going to be wearing a floral wreath, you know we are going to get along just fine.  Couple that with amazing music by the Waydown Wanderers (who we have since been listening to non-stop), plenty of DIY details, homegrown flowers, a jaw-dropping BHLDN gown, and damn good people, all on your family's farm -- you've got yourself a recipe for one of our favorite weddings of all time.

Please enjoy a few (ok, many, many) photos of Kelly and Matt's beautiful farm wedding...

Baby Eden

We love watching our client's families grow!  These two wonderful people asked us to photograph their wedding a few years back and when they welcomed their beautiful daughter, Eden, to the world, they invited us to their home to capture some images of this precious time in their life. Little Eden is simply beautiful, and were honored to be able to spend time with Ben and Anna's sweet family.

These moments are gone all too quickly...
