Lacy Flurry + Matt Maggio | Horseshoe Bend, Arizona | First Look & Portrait Session

Lacy Flurry and Matt Maggio, high school sweethearts who spent their high school years hours apart in two different cities; married this year in October after nine years of dating.

They happen to be some of our very best friends — so the four of us set out for a 6,300 mile roadtrip across the country from Arkansas to the west coast and up north.

They considered getting married on the trip, but decided they wanted their families to be present for their special day, totally understandable! But they decided on something I think is just as neat as getting married out west — doing their first look and portraits instead! We all decided an intimate first look at Horseshoe Bend in Arizona — 1,000 feet up, overlooking the Colorado River would be perfect!

It was a little unconventional, but so worth it!

They carried their wedding day attire – flower crown and all (made by local Arkansas florist, Anna Rogers) across the country for a first look and photo session that was nothing short of amazing.

We did 3 engagement sessions, 1 bridal session and 1 ‘first look’ and portrait session during the 13 day trip in August.

The sessions ranged from locations like Lake Tahoe in California, Glacier National Park in Montana, Canyon X in Arizona, and finally Horseshoe Bend in Arizona. The other sessions will be featured on the blog in upcoming weeks — and their wedding as well!

Still dreaming of all the beauty from our trip! <3

Tracie French | Little Rock, AR Bridals

When Tracie approached us about photographing her wedding, I knew she would be such a fun bride to work with. Tracie and I have been friends almost six years, we met when she joined Alpha Tau at UCA- in January of 2012. Since then, Tracie has become one of the most genuine and energetic people I know. Loving animals like I do, we automatically became friends. With her love for animals, we HAD to sneak in a few bridal portraits with the venue owner’s cats – so hilarious! (See below)!

Anne-Claire Allen Planning & Design made all of her wedding dreams come true. The venue, Goodwin Manor was the perfect setting for her bridals and wedding day – I love this venue & the owners so much. There is just not any venue in Arkansas that looks like this one — it is GORGEOUS! Chanda Price made Tracie look flawless with beautiful hair and makeup. Wedding photos coming soon, but for now, cheers to this fabulous bride & her fall bridal session!

Emily + Austin | Little Rock, AR Engagements

When it comes to engagements, they are one of my favorite things to photograph! Engagements are a time that I get to really know the couple; especially if it is a couple that I don’t know personally before the shoot. I like to think of them as a practice run for the wedding day! It is a chance for me to get acquainted with the couple and each of their personalities.

We photographed Emily’s best friend’s wedding late last year and I knew that if Autumn loved Emily, we would love her too!

During this session I was thinking how excited I am that we get to photograph Emily and Austin’s wedding – they are the type of couple that I want to be friends with! So relaxed, fun and completely and wholeheartedly just sweet to one another. AND, they love dogs so…. that made me love them even more! Rossi, their adorable golden doodle stole the show, just like Emily said he would. I literally can not wait until their 2018 wedding – so thankful for clients like these two!

Shelby Lovelace Bradshaw | Little Rock, AR Bridals

Today we are busy editing our hearts out but we had to take a quick break to bring you Shelby’s bridal portraits! We took these mid-summer and it was so toasty outside; we had to beat the heat and the Arkansas State Capitol was the perfect indoor venue! Her classic dress shined against the beautiful marble staircase. And her gorgeous bouquet by Magnolia Belle Floral was just the pop of color that completely made the photos! So in love with this bride and this session!

Cara Erwin & Boyd Schaefer | North Little Rock, AR Wedding

Cara and Boyd got married earlier this year in their home church and it was magical! It was supposed to rain all day long – and guess what, majority of the day it was clear! It didn’t rain until we were finished with all of their outdoor photographs and I was so thankful for this! It was a day filled with lots of laughter and a few happy tears. We loved getting to witness just how close these two were with their family and friends – they were surrounded by so much love! We are so thrilled to bring this sweet wedding to the blog this evening!

Lizzy + Matt Yatsula | Memphis, TN Wedding

Lizzy is the former roommate of one of our past bride’s, Jordan, and we were overjoyed when Lizzy contacted us about photographing her and Matt’s wedding. We knew that if Lizzy was friends with Jordan, we would love her – and we did!

The wedding was at a gorgeous church in Memphis – Holy Communion; and the reception took place at the Memphis Country Club. We are obsessed with the colors that Lizzy chose for the bridesmaid’s dresses – so classic and beautiful! The couple celebrated with a lively crowd at the reception, it was such a blast!

We had such a great team of vendors collaborating to make this wedding perfection! We couldn’t have asked for a better team! So thankful we were a part of this wonderful day!
