abby + trey . rehearsal dinner

Amanda + Brent  |  Photographers  |  Weddings  |  

Abby and Trey’s wedding weekend kicked off with an intimate rehearsal dinner filled with family and friends. The wine and drinks flowed during thoughtful toasts and even the occasional funny story of Abby and Trey and their adventures together. The night progressed into a big Welcome Party where more guests from out of town came to celebrate with Abby of Trey. It was a beautiful evening filled with happy tears, laughing and sweet moves on the dance floor. This was only the beginning to an unforgettable weekend. Stay tuned more of this event to come!

abigail + michael

Amanda + Brent  |  Millie  |  Weddings  |  

Happy Anniversary to Abi and Michael! Two people that I love dearly and a wedding day I won’t soon forget. Your wedding day was truly magical and looking back on it brought many smiles to my face.

I’m also really excited to announce that this was my first wedding ever published in Martha Stewart Magazine. It was released in print late last year and that’s why I haven’t shared it with you until now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Three things I remember most about your wedding day are 1. Your sweet tears at the altar while you said your vows. 2. Guests thoughtfully selecting leaves from the garden to create your guestbook, such a fun idea from Salt Harbor, especially with Michael’s love for landscaping! 3. How beautifully breathtaking Abi was on this day. I look back on this wedding with such fond memories, I always will!

The Pajerski Family

Millie  |  Newborn  |  Portraits  |  

When I first met the Pajerski family they were a party of two with one little guy on the way. Now several years have past and they’ve grown to a party of five! It’s been so much fun to watch their little family grow and photograph them along the way. I recently spent an afternoon with them in their home documenting life with their newest addition to the family, a sweet little girl! Meet Nina… she is the happiest little baby around!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to your sweet family for allowing me to be your photographer through the years. It’s been a joy to watch you guys grow! I was just looking back at our last session from the Fall of 2012 and seeing how much the kids have grown made me smile. I remember photographing everyone piled onto your bed on the very first newborn session with Owen and puppy Lucy… it’s now much more energetic and challenging to photograph with three bouncing kiddos aboard!

cara + travis

Lindsey  |  Renee  |  Weddings  |  

Cara & Travis’ wedding day was nothing short of perfect – a stunning couple, amazing weather, and a dreamy island. What I love most about Cara & Travis are their complimentary personalities, the way they adore each other, and their magnetic energy- people love them. And it was so evident on their wedding day, as they were surrounded by a large bridal party of close friends, teammates, family members, and supporters that adore them both. We started the day with the girls, and Cara looked absolutely heavenly…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cara & Travis, your wedding was not only beautiful, it was SO. MUCH. FUN. (and having killer dancers like the Charlotte Lady Cats at the reception doesn’t hurt either) We had such a great time being a small part of your special day- we wish you two the VERY best!

Thank you to the incredible team of wedding professionals who made this day so beautiful!
