Allie rocked her bridal session – from the dress, makeup, hair, florals….this girl looked flawless! This session is near to my heart because Allie has …
I usually don’t get so emotional when I write blog posts but this is a wedding that was very near and dear to my heart. Molly is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and I have 110% loved getting to capture her journey with Clay! I have known Molly since 2009 when we were ‘pledge buddies’ in Alpha Tau. I believe I mentioned this in a previous blog post, but every new member (pledge) gets a pledge buddy. Your PB is basically your partner for the pledging semester. I am fairly certain we were paired together because we were both redheads, good choice on our pledge mom’s part. I can say Molly and I got even closer our senior year when we were on the AST Executive board. I am forever thankful for that experience and our friendship.
When she got engaged I prayed we would do her wedding photography and I am SO thankful we got the opportunity. From engagements, bridals to the wedding day this has been an incredible experience. I am not sure I have ever had a bride TRUST us so much with her wedding photography. For that, I am eternally grateful and appreciative. Every step of the way, Molly was encouraging me and constantly telling me how she was so glad she didn’t have to worry about her photos and that she knew they would be perfect. I may be bias, but I think they certainly are PERFECT. Not because of their photographers though, but because this couple has a love so deep it radiates in everything they touch and everything they do. So this may be my longest blog post ever but I literally could not limit this loveliness to a certain number of photos. I didn’t include all the photos that we gave to her and Clay, but I did include over 200 of my favorites. I hope they also become your favorites. With much love I hope you enjoy! Hugs and kisses to my Rwandan friends!
Dustin has been in my life a looooong time! We grew up with one another and he is probably my longest lasting friend. We will go months without talking but it is the type of friendship where you don’t have to talk everyday but you still have each other’s backs no matter what. He is more like a brother honestly. When I heard he was engaged I was so excited for him! And now that I know Tori, I love her too (maybe more than I like Dustin – just kidding). She is the perfect balance to Dustin, exactly what he needed. And she keeps him in line, which he can be a mess sometimes. Plus she is gorgeous, talk about blonde bombshell!
I am super sad we were booked on their wedding day, not just to photograph it, but just to attend. Dustin was an usher at my wedding a few years back and now I wanted to be there to see him tie the knot! Although I will be photographing another wedding, I will definitely be there in spirit. (I can’t wait to see pics!) I wish you two the best and cheers to many more years of friendship with you both!
ps: aren’t these firefighter shots the cutest?!
