June is just a really good month you guys...and Kyle & Jamison are getting married on June 17th which is just 5 days after my birthday! I had a blast trekking through some gorgeous landscapes in good ol' Sweetwater, getting to know these cutie pies and laughing at their fun antics. Life is so short and it's absolutely meant to be lived and shared with people who bring you JOY. That's definitely the case with you two and I can't wait for your wedding day!
Can I please just say, how blessed am I?
I often have the tendency to think most of what I have failed at rather than focusing on what it is good in my life and where I have succeeded. It definitely keeps me on the go to reach my goals...but more than anything, that mindset can be so destructive. One of my biggest goals this year is to just slow down and see that there are so many good, perfect and beautiful things right in front of me and to rejoice in the success I have, even if it feels small.
I set out to book 15 weddings for this year, and though I have the instinct to keep this number for myself, I will go ahead and tell you I've only booked half of that. That disappoints me to my core, but when I really take a look at everything I've accomplished in the short amount of time I've actually been full time, I feel so proud and excited at that number! Not only that - but I have always valued quality over quantity...and my couples this year are exceptionally AMAZING. Full of love for each other (which makes my job a breeze) and kindness + a value for me and what I do. What more can I really ask for?
Now onto this lovely pair...Daven & Meg! One of the sweetest couples and with the most adorable little girl, Olivia! They have known each other for quite some time, been dating for two years in May, and are also finally saying "I do" on May 20th! I am so truly looking forward to their wedding day as I know it's sure to be jam packed with joy, romance and lots of happiness. I'm so thankful I was able to capture just a little peek into the love these two share!
I was absolutely thrilled when Belinda contacted me about booking an engagement session. Let me tell you a little something - I get googly eyes over family sessions and have the best time with seniors, but couples + weddings really do have my heart. Every single time I photograph an engagement or a wedding, I feel like I'm being invited into this beautiful little secret full of almost kisses and uncontrollable laughter. I greatly treasure the process of getting to see a couple open up with me and just be themselves.
Belinda and Bo were no exception y'all! Full of silliness and not shy at all with those romantic kisses. Seriously - I had a blast with these two in our short time and am so excited for them to join together as one next year!
