There’s just something special about couples incorporating personal places, things or pets into their shoots. Jordan and Abbie have taken their Land Cruiser and pups on multiple trips and adventures and have made countless memories together with this ride. We took a little drive to a park for their engagement shoot and were greeted with a perfect fall evening to document this season for them <3
When you bring two people who are madly in love with each other and have impeccable taste, then surround them with their community of incredible friends, you get THIS. A day filled with so much beauty of every kind. David and Jenna were so welcoming to Eric and I when we joined them in Ohio for the weekend. They wanted nothing more than to overflow their love onto their friends and family in what was one of the best gatherings to date. Fair warning that this post is going to be a long one because it was too beautiful not to share every square inch of it.
British Columbia will always have a small piece of my heart. As will the Wallensteen family. This was my third visit, and my second wedding for this sweet family. Trevor and Allecia decided to have their intimate wedding over four hours from home at a hot springs campground in Nakusp, BC. We soaked in the springs each morning and night, and when the time felt right on the wedding day, everyone began getting into their best dressed to venture out into the woods for their private ceremony. Surrounded by only family, Allecia brother married them, and we all cried happy happy tears. I loved the emotion that surrounded this ceremony and the way the light peaked through and warmed up what was a previously a rainy morning. We walked back through the woods for portraits embracing the moss covered ground as it met us. The rain held of just until we had wrapped up and found shelter under the bridge, then it poured down creating the moody intimate moments I crave. We ended the evening with a home cooked meal and another soak in the springs. The Wallensteens are ones who welcome you in, open armed, as if you are already family. Thanks you Trevor and Allecia for having me as part of your day <3
A few weeks after booking me for their wedding ceremony – which was to take place a year later – Jamie emails asking if I’m available for a surprise elopement in four weeks. They did what their hearts were telling them and what felt right for them as a couple. They cancelled everything and with just the two of them, joining hands in one of their favorite places, a pastor and the Lord (and me!) as witnesses – they said I Do. It was such a laid back casual day, we all met up at the trail entrance and hiked back to the spot they had picked with the most absurdly warm November weather gracing us. The sound of the rushing stream was their processional and we later cracked open some beers in celebration. So in love with these two and their perfect woodland elopement.
