Mindy : Acadian Village Bridals

Now that Mrs. Duplantis has become Mrs. Bouzigard, I can finally share these beautiful bridals!

Working with Mindy throughout engagements, bridals, and her wedding day was such an honor. She is a client turned friend, and I can’t wait to see the future for her and Dean! Mindy gave all creative trust to me during her bridal session, and I absolutely love the outcome. You can truly see the happiness and personality (one of the best around) shine through in her photos!

These were taken at Acadian Village in Lafayette, with a variety of scenery, you cant really go wrong with this location!

Annaliese & Ben : An Omaha Engagement

Let me tell you. I couldn’t have been more excited when Annaliese approached me about photographing her wedding! When I flew up for their engagements, I was so excited for a change of scenery – and I got exactly that! Our first stop was Fairmont Antiques & Mercantile, and I just fell in love with the place. SO many colors, and SO many old Hollywood items (even the piano that Lady Gaga used in her You&I video shot in Nebraska)!  We also stopped at an old vintage book store, as well as the downtown passageway where Ben had proposed. These two have such a fun chemistry that comes through in their photos and I cannot wait to go back in August to photograph their wedding day!

Styled Shoot

Styled shoots are one of my favorite parts of my job. The vendors for this shoot were absolutely amazing. Alyssa is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet, and is incredibly talented. She includes everyone’s vision and somehow makes them come together seamlessly! Mia’s floral designs are my favorite in town, hands down. She creates some of the most romantic pieces. Sophie, both our model and jewelry vendor, is genuinely an amazing person inside and out. Being able to meet new wedding vendors each shoot is something I look forward to. This day was a blessing to us, we managed to make it through the day with only five minutes of rain, which was a miracle!

Mr. & Mrs. Bates : Married

So I’m sitting here thinking about what to write – and I just don’t know where to start. Bret and Haley are the type of people that inspire you to be a better person, just by being themselves. When Bret reached out to me to shoot their wedding – I couldn’t have said yes faster! On the big day everyone was relaxed, excited, and full of thanks to God.  One of my favorite parts of the day was the processional. When each member of the bridal party got to their spot, they each picked up an instrument and began to play along. Then, as Haley started to walk down the aisle – they all sang the most beautiful song written by one of the groomsmen. OH, and coffee bar>bar bar, any day:)

So… I’m still sitting here trying to think of words to say, but nothing I write seems quite adequate so I’m going to leave you with some words from Bret & Haley :

Getting married is a lot like looking through a kaleidoscope. It’s a beautiful experience that is not easily imitated. But in that beauty is a lot of chaos. The weeks before the wedding there were many moments that had the same feeling as jumping off a cliff- like everything was ending in a big pile of mess. I honestly didn’t expect the wedding in itself to be very put together or very attractive looking. But after Bret and I said our sweet “I do’s”, we saw before us not the work of our own hands but the work of the Lord’s. Our music was preformed by dear friends, the Parc paid for by family, the flowers carefully and thoughtfully placed by loving family and a local artist, the decorations hung by devoted out-of-town friends, food provided by a loving community, and of course a spirit of joy provided by a loving God. Nothing could express the feelings we had. It felt as close to perfection as I could ever imagine on this earth and none of it could be claimed by my own work. The Jews believe that your wedding day is the closest to God you’ll ever feel on earth. And I understand that now. I felt so loved. And so much love toward others. Husband and wife. Community. However, the Jews also took time out of the wedding day to acknowledge brokenness. Now, Bret and I also are fully aware of this. Because even in our ‘day of perfection’ we experienced brokenness. Mostly in expectations not met by family members but also in missing loved ones. But, regardless, Bret and I take joy in such a glorious day. One more beautiful than the mixing and moving mysterious colors of a chaotic kaleidoscope. We take joy in the mere hope of a marriage that will reflect the same beauty, gratitude, and love.
