Ashton & Taylor

Just a few highlights of Ashton & Taylor's wedding on 6.27.2015. This wedding was on the perfect day in June to be married, with mild weather and sun rays of gold that slit through the trees. Taylor said she wanted something different and unique for their wedding-party portraits. Just a few days before their wedding, I was able to find a great location in Carthage to work in. After their ceremony, we ended up shooting at a mansion from the late-Victorian era with rich wooden paneling and wide windows that let in a wealth of good natural lighting. 

One of my favorite parts of witnessing Ashton & Taylor celebrate their union, was the bond and community they held with so many people who genuinely loved and supported them. It was a sense of knowing that each person present was wholeheartedly cheering them on and had seen truth and commitment in their relationship leading to marriage. 

I'm leaving you with just a taste of who Ashton & Taylor are, and the beautiful day they shared together.

Sarah & Joseph

A month before their wedding, Sarah and Joseph decided to get married early.
Joseph's mom has been suffering with brain damage and is quickly losing her health. They wanted her to be there to celebrate with them, so they chose to get married in the woods at the last minute. The entire wedding was planed quickly, but done in such love and care by family members. They had such an intimate ceremony that spoke so much joy and happiness has two families celebrated together.

Enjoy these photos of their special day!
