Our favorite part of photographing weddings is the notion of collaborating with the unknown. Sure, we know what to expect in general. But really, none of us have any idea what’s going to happen when the day starts. These beautiful and fleeting seconds are the moments you can’t plan for, you can’t put on a shot list or check off in a box. They are the things we are looking for when we all agree to let go, trust each other, and just be present. Katie + Dewey’s wedding was chock full these moments. Every where you looked, there they were. Each detail was carefully curated to reflect a piece of who they are, each guest was carefully invited because of their deep connection to the couple. So the energy that creates is a recipe for beautiful, personal, forever kind of photos.
Thank you for inviting us to this special place. We hope they will add to the history of the farm for another 100+ years.
It takes two seconds to fall in love with Colleen. You can actually count them. One. Two. Ooop – I’m in love. Her heart is so full that it bursts out of her like sunbeams from her stunning blue eyes. See. In love. And Shawn is her perfect match. They balance each other in such a powerful way. On the day of their wedding, the energy was palpable. Everyone laughed and cried and ate and danced and got one of the greatest hugs they’ll ever get from this 5 foot nothing beauty.
As we were leaving, Colleen pulled me in and said, “We would have hired you guys no matter what you did. If you sold flowers, we would have hired you. If you put together the floor we’re dancing on, we would have hired you. We are so glad just to have you here.” That moment will stick with me for a long, long time.
We wish you both every amazing thing you deserve. We can’t wait to see what comes next.
