These photos are SO AMAZING! You captured candid expressions of genuine felling and emotion; something that cannot be fabricated. I think these two should get married again just so they can send out engagement photos!

Actually, they ARE planning on another wedding! In fact, during our session today, we talked about their awesome plan to have a wedding every 5 years… and they have the COOLEST idea for their second one. I won’t tell, in case it’s a secret…

I know Shannon from work (and see John around the office, too) and I have to admit, these photos brought tears to my eyes. You captured how in love they are–simply beautiful.

Jen I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity to connect with Shannon and have the moment captured.

Hey Jen, it’s really awesome that you’re giving back. You continue to amaze me! Going along with the Friends of Trees idea…at the end of each wedding “season” you could plant a grove dedicated to the people you’ve worked with over the season. Court and I were looking into this in efforts to offset the travel our wedding guests had to do. There isn’t a whole lot of grove specific info on the website, but they do have a program in place for mass plantings.

The word “fun” keeps bubbling back up as I try to sum up the day, because the couple and their entire wedding party were incredibly playful and excited about taking fun photographs. The see-saw on the property set the stage for a rambunctious photo session, I guess. :)
