This gorgeous couple got married five years ago and they have one adorable little boy. I’ve photographed their family a few times over the last few years. Some time ago we talked about them doing a “rock the dress” session. A couple months ago we finally booked the date and had a blast. My awesome friend Amber¬†¬†joined me for the adventure. We got some amazing photos and I’m excited to finally share them!!!

It just goes to show that it’s never too late to have your wedding photos done!!

Thank you so much Autumn and Derek. You guys are awesome!!!

 

 

 

 

 

I have to say that organizing all of my siblings (step and blood-related) to get this photo of all the kids together actually worked out MUCH better than expected. We had a few melt-downs and what not, but it was SOOOO worth it after watching my dad, step-mama, and grandma cry. We gave this as a gift to them this evening. It was SO HARD to not share this photo since it makes me smile so big.

So here ya go.

My kids, nieces, nephew, a cousin, and a sister.

and the photo of my kids that has gotten the single most comments from people on facebook EVER. Of course I’m biased and think my kids are gorgeous and well, you know the rest… ;)

I loved everything about this wedding. The couple, the locations, and the amazing details!!

Alissa and Ian were a blast to work with and so was their entire bridal party. We had some pretty good laughs during the formal photos. My second shooter, Amber was AMAZING and some of these lovely photos were taken by her.

They opted to see each other before the ceremony (which from a photographer’s perspective is AWESOME). We got such a great variety!!

Alissa and Ian, congrats on your marriage and I hope you love your photos!!!

This little guy was the smiliest newborn I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. He snoozed right through the entire session and was just perfect. We ended up with about ten photos just of smiles on top of all the other cute-ness. He was 12 days old on the day of our session and such a good baby!!!

Congrats K family on your new addition. He’s just perfect!!! Thank you so much for letting me do his first photos. It was my pleasure!!!
