Lauren & Austin | Married!



Let me start this post by saying that, as I am typing this, I am clutching a large Pepsi and gulping it down as fast as I can. Despite being up since 4am, I have opted out of a nap because there’s just so much to do!! (But let me tell you…getting up at 4am makes for a GORGEOUS sunrise senior session!!) I’ve been so excited to share these images and could not be happier that I get to share them with you all today!!

When Ashley of Faith Photography first messaged me asking to second-shoot with her, I was SO excited! I had been offering my services to a few photographers and posting in some Facebook groups…but Ashley was the first to message me! She told me that her regular second shooter was out of town and she was looking for someone with a similar style to assist her at her first wedding of the season. I was thrilled!! (Also very nervous…but mostly thrilled). We met up for coffee a few weeks before the wedding, shared some delicious food and explored the venue together. Then, on Lauren and Austin’s wedding day, I woke up to it being in the 60’s and absolutely gorgeous outside!! I could not have been blessed with a more perfect day!

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Ashley for the opportunity and to Lauren & Austin for being so awesome!! Congratulations to the two of you!

Check out some of the images I captured at my very first wedding below!! Let me know what you think and I hope everyone is having a fabulous week 🙂
