Hadley & Luke {turtledoves}

The best part about my job is that I get to become a part of very special events in the lives of people I've never met before. Because of this, these strangers become our friends! I have had the privilege of interacting with Hadley and her mom throughout this year as they planned an extraordinary Autumn wedding. From shooting their engagement photos to the countless emails to their first look, Hadley and Luke have been a privilege to work with! Bluejay and I felt more like honored guests at the wedding (with fancy cameras) than photographers. Hadley's mom even gave us a gift filled with "bird things" like bird decals, bird clips and a notebook with birds on the cover. Does she know me or what?

Hadley and Luke- I know you've been patiently anticipating these :) Hope it was worth the wait. Your wedding was perfect!

A super sweet intimate "first look." I love when my couples decide to see each other before the ceremony because they can enjoy the moment and express real emotions in private. Plus, it gives us a lots of time for Bride and Groom photos.
