SUSIE + SEAN - Geneva National Resort Wedding

If you like baller sunglasses, Dr. Seuss quotes and lots of sunshine, this wedding is for you. I absolutely LOVED this day. Susie and Sean are incredibly sweet, FUN people.

In mid-July, I traveled up to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to photograph Susie & Sean's wedding. Yes, Wisconsin! You see, I met Susie when I studied abroad in Australia back in my college days, and I was PUMPED (!!!!!) when I heard from her a little over a year ago about shooting her and Sean's wedding. (Side note: I've had the privilege of shooting FIVE study abroad girls' weddings. A post commemorating that later...!) Susie & Sean got married at the beautiful Geneva National Resort on a breathtaking day.

As it always seems to be (lucky me!), I hit the jackpot with some awesome families. I already knew ahead of the day that Susie & Sean were gracious, kind people, but their families welcomed me with open arms as well and were SO kind throughout the day. Also, a funny side note: during Susie & Sean's portraits, we dodged golfers (still in their rounds) and LOTS of goose droppings. It was pretty hilarious, if you ask me. Always an adventure!

Sus and Sean, thank you so much for introducing me to Wisconsin! If it's anything like your wedding, I believe I'll be traveling back there again someday. : )

How sweet is Susie's nephew?!

And I love this one of Susie's niece watching her mama put on lipstick.

I love how we got Susie's niece to smile for a portrait by holding a stick. #alwaysthinking (yes, I just used a hashtag in a blog post... #addicted)

Handsome groom, beautiful bride... check!

YES.

Tea + lemonade = favorite!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

Another favorite!

Maybe the best face ever during a cake cutting. : )

AMANDA + WES - WinMock at Kinderton Wedding

My first wedding of 2013. Where in the world did the beginning of the year go?! Everyone, meet Amanda & Wes. These two were a joy to photograph together. So many smiles all day long. : )

Amanda & Wes's gorgeous winter wedding was held at the beautiful WinMock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run, North Carolina. I thought it was so neat that they had the ceremony set up in a circle. Family and friends were positioned all around them and it felt much more intimate, especially because the guests held lighted candles. I also loved that they included their adorable pup, Brooks, in the photos and the ceremony. And oh my goodness... the band. Rubberband was awesome! I don't think ANYBODY wanted to leave this rockin' reception! Congrats, you two. Many happy years together! : )

Thanks to Jenny Tenney for helping me shoot and for great company!

I loved that their dog stayed at Amanda's feet while she was getting ready. So sweet.

Amanda's hair was so glamorous!

Stunning. : )

So cute: on his shoes were "She's" and "Mine."

Eeeee! LOVE THESE!

First look - so sweet!

Love.

LOVED the gold vases!

Wes & Amanda's close friends got up during the ceremony to read something personal they each had written. This was so touching!

In lieu of the traditional wedding party shot, they opted for a fun photo op with close friends. LOVE!

The couple got engaged in Napa.

Such a stunning barn. Right?

I had some stiff competition during the cake cutting, but it's okay, because they fed each other multiple times. ; )

Wes's Dad = awesome.

Amanda's dad = amazing.

This couple was so adorable. Sneaking kisses in the corner...

I don't think I've ever seen FOUR people catch the bouquet!

Wes's brother and girlfriend = SWEET dance moves!

I LOVE this photo.

DYLAN: ONE YEAR AGO

Oh how the difference a year makes! Here is my nephew, Dylan, photographed on February 17, 2012 and February 10, 2013. He's just as cute as ever --- don't you agree? More to come from his little sister's newborn session soon! : )
