josh + kelley | mint springs farm wedding

Let me tell you a story in pictures….
Josh and Kelley’s wedding started out as a perfect day.

with a beautiful bride…

and a handsome groom.

They started out with their first look (which is always a sweet, sweet moment.)

I LOVE these portraits. And, I am especially happy that we got to take these before
because…

out of the middle of nowhere, the skies opened up.
It was supposed to be a quick “pop-up” shower.
Nope.

Can you believe that she smiled the whole time?

So, this flexible bridal party was willing to push the photos until after the wedding.
Oh, yeah…and, it was still sprinkling.
STILL.

But, after all that rain came a beautiful sunset.
And these two were willing to stand out in the rain for this shot.
Worth it, right?

And, at the end of the day, these two were happy as clams, and it ended up being a perfect day!

Warning: This post will make you want to live in the South.
And if it doesn’t make you crave sweet tea, that’s because you have never had the tea or palmer from her parent’s restaurant.
So…sorry for the shameless plug…but the people at Stroud’s know how serious I am about my tea.
If you’ve never had it, you need to change that.
ASAP.

On to the reason you’re here…
This girl.
We have known her since she was toddling around as a baby,
but in the past few years, we have really gotten to know her.
She has a heart of gold.
And a personality to match her contagious smile.
We tried to hit up some of her favorite spots (which meant careful planning….the fair only comes around once a year, guys.)

And, just for fun, some of her BFFs (since they were toddlers) showed up and we snapped a few of them together.
FYI…one of the girls HATES cotton candy….which we found out AFTER she ate it.

Summer, we’re blessed because we know you.
And, we never like go to El Tap alone…so…you’re always welcome to join us.  ;)
We love you big time, and
We think you’re the cat’s meow.

will + janae | engagement session

When we first “met” these two, it was over SKYPE because they go to college in Arkansas.
And we immediately knew we’d like them because when our cat photobombed (SKYPE bombed?) us, they laughed.
That’s all it takes to be on our good side. ;)
Anyway, we’ve recently had several couples from Harding University, and we LOVE that
because, ironically, we used to go to summer camp there when we were teenagers.
And, we might have really fallen for each other during one of those weeks at Harding.
(1998. Can you BELIEVE that? Almost 20 years ago?!? Sheesh!)
So, couples from there are extra special to us.

Guys. You two are super adorable.

They were literally ALL SMILES all day.
Janae, you are beautiful, and it radiates out of your whole body.
I don’t think anyone could be in a bad mood around you.

Favorite.

Ok, ok, maybe this is my favorite.

We are SO excited about your wedding because if it is half as fun as this day was, we’re in for a treat!
