Propcellar Vow Renewal | Kailey + John

Kailey + John got married in February of this year, with an intimate courthouse ceremony. So when they decided to have a vow renewal + reception for all of their friends + family, I was STOKED + knew it'd be a good time! 

These two are hilarious and sweet and so loving with each other. They have a love story that gives this single gal hope...they met on Tinder <3

Their day was so relaxed and go with the flow. Everything was perfect + everyone was just excited to celebrate the Vecchiones. Before the wedding day, Kailey + John weren't sure about leaving the reception for sunset photos. I told them to *trust* me because they'd be oh so worth it.

I'd say they were worth leaving the party for 15 minutes **heart eyes**

Glad y'all swiped right!

Colleen + Aaron | A Chicago Engagement

Colleen aka Weenie has been my bestie since 8th grade. We lived a few blocks away and went to the same middle school, where we met on the basketball team! We were roommates when I lived in Chicago earlier this year. She and Aaron got engaged back in the summer and I was there to document the momentous occasion <3

A few years ago, I was with our friend Sloane in Chicago, visiting Colleen. She hadn't met Aaron so she was asking me about him. Honestly all I could say was "he's so Colleen."

We just so happened to be waiting at a bar waiting for Colleen + Aaron. Colleen walked in and joined us and Aaron walked in about 10 minutes later. 

Sloane and I looked at him and then looked at each other. She died laughing because even just from the first sight, he was SO COLLEEN!!! The entire night, Sloane and I just chuckled back and forth as we saw the real Colleen + Aaron. He was perfect for her. The funny, weird, chill, preppy, Colleen we'd known since middle school had found her guy. It was pretty freaking cool.

They are literally SO made for each other. Some of their mannerisms are like they were made just for each other and like they've been together for A G E S. Idk it's so weird, but SO cool to see your best friend fall in love. I'm so lucky to be part of this!

Colleen + Aaron are getting married June 9, 2018 in Cincinnati. And I can't wait to be a BRIDESMAID!! Yeeeee!!! Gonna be a good time!

We got to hang out at the North Ave Beach, Lincoln Park, and in the Loop. Our last stop was in the basement of their favorite bar. It was suuuuper old school and again, SO COLLEEN, but also SO AARON. 

"Like the seas wait


For the dawn to come


I feel hope


In the strength of our love"

Meg + Clay / The Thompson's Loflin Yard Wedding / Memphis Wedding Photographer

I met Meg + Clay a little over a year ago when Clay reached out to me to hire me to document their proposal on the Greenline. They went on a bike ride, like they liked to do together quite often. You can see more of their proposal + engagement here

Meg + Clay said their vows to each other on a warm Saturday afternoon in May at Loflin Yard in Downtown Memphis, TN. Loflin was such a beautiful place to have a wedding!

The day was so full of love and beautiful people. Meg + Clay are so loving and fun! The Lord has truly blessed everyone who knows Meg + Clay  - as we get to witness their love and see Jesus in them as they love each other.

Floberg Family / Welcome Baby Theo / Chicago Newborn Photographer

In February when I was living in Chicago, I reached out to Eric Floberg who is an AMAZING photographer + videographer there, asking to grab coffee and chat about photography. Ya know, what us photographers do for fun, not even kidding. 

He told me he'd get back to me because his wife, Sabriah, was about to give birth to their second little boy! Sweet Theo was born and a few weeks later and after they were all settled in, Eric + Sabriah opened their adorable home up to me and let me spend an entire day hanging out with them and their kiddos. Of course I couldn't not take their photos, especially because sweet Theo and Scout are the CUTEST lil boys. After I photographed them, Eric and I spent a few hours talking photography and I admired his work. Like seriously guys, his images are awesome and his videos are BOMB. Like he's definitely my favorite videographer, ever. Check him out Eric Floberg. If I ever get married, he will FOR SURE be videoing it, but don't hold your breath.

Eric, Sabriah, Scout + baby Theo <3

 

P.S. at the end of our session, Eric surprised Sabriah with a song that he WROTE and SANG and PLAYED ON THE GUITAR. If that ain't the sweetest dang thing. My heart. <3
