Bethany & David's Elegant Winter Wedding

January 22, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
The Millers began their marriage in a beautiful, elegant wedding on December 23 at Church Street Station in Downtown Jonesboro. The entire day was absolutely lovely... the venue, the decor, the dress, the cake... all perfect.

 Bethany's dress, shoes, hair and accessories were gorgeous. Elegant black and white.

 Classy mermaid-style, lace-up dress with a fun black bow and feathers in her hair... and a bouquet of calla lilies. 

 David and his groomsmen looked sharp in all black.

 The six bridesmaids each wore a different style of black dress and black shoes.



2011 Holiday Portrait Sessions

January 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
We certainly stayed busy this holiday season! Several holiday family sessions, Christmas parties, and a wedding (pictures of that later), along with all of our usual holiday festivities kept Chad and me going nonstop. Hence the lack of blog posts.

Now that the holidays are over, the schedule has calmed down and I'm finally getting a chance to post a few of the photos from our holiday sessions.





Hope you all enjoyed your holidays! I certainly did!

The Simmons, Timmons, and Watkins Families

A few weeks ago we were finally able to do a photo shoot we've been trying to schedule for months. With a busy family like this one, scheduling was a challenge, but once we all got together, we had a great shoot.

Bloggers, meet the Simmons gang.

This is my Aunt Jackie, Uncle Tommy, their daughters Jennifer and Kari, and their husbands, Wayne and Grant and kids, Ashley, Justice, Ila Beth, Eden, Fuller, and Grey. Quite a crew!

Here's a great shot of the whole crew. I was amazed that we actually got everyone looking at the camera and smiling on the first shot!
Kari, Grant and Grey on the left... Jennifer, Wayne, Ashley, Justice, Ila Beth, Eden and Fuller on the right.
This is a really cute one of all Tommy and Jackie's grandchildren. Love this picture!
It all started with these two.

The girls...

 and the boys...





Kevin + Shannon {Engagement}

October 20, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
Kevin and Shannon are getting married this Saturday, October 22, (same day as Lorenzo and Erika!) and they'll soon be a happy little family of 3 with Kevin's super-sweet daughter.

This fun photo session took place a few weeks ago in Jonesboro on a somewhat rainy afternoon. We had already postponed the session once due to rain, so when it started drizzling on us in the middle of the shoot, we decided it was obviously meant to be... a rainy photo shoot! So we grabbed the umbrellas and took advantage of it.



Honestly, Chad and I wanted to do an engagement photo shoot in the rain when we were getting married, but it never worked out for us... So I was a little jealous when I saw how cute these turned out! (It's ok, I'll get over it.)



Before the rain began, we had walked around downtown Jonesboro (one of my favorite places to shoot) and got some really cute shots near some of the old buildings and cool allies.

I never pass up an interesting doorway. Great way to frame out a sweet moment like this.

I love the simplicity of this shot. And all the happy faces.
McCayle loved the camera, and it loved her! She had a great time being the center of attention.
The rain let up for a few minutes, the sun peeked out, and the green field and softly lit sky created the perfect backdrop for this perfect picture. This was my favorite shot of the day.

Victoria & Bret's Summertime Brookland Wedding

October 19, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
The Novo's were wed on a HOT August day in the small town on Brookland, Arkansas. One of those southern summertime days when your skin starts glistening the moment you walk outdoors. But inside the walls of that church a cool, sweet love was in the air. It didn't show on the thermometer, but on the faces of the bride and groom who were so obviously and hopelessly crazy about one another. 


How sweet are these two?

When I walked in to bride's dressing room, she was all smiles, and she was implementing a strict "no tears" policy for her wedding day. (It didn't last through the ceremony.)

Victoria was true to tradition and carried something old, new, borrowed, and blue. The handkerchief is the same one her mother carried on her wedding day in 1987.
The Hand Fasting ceremony is a Celtic wedding tradition.
The getaway car was 1930-something car with a rumble seat. (Awesome!)
