They dated for nearly 7 years before they were finally able to tie the knot in front of all of their close family + friends, and I was able to stand beside her on that special day. I saw the stress + anxiety from the last 48 hours ebb away as she stood in front of Forrest, holding his hand and breathing sighs of relief + joy that this was actually happening. She was marrying her best friend and there was nothing that could take away from the joy of that. Because I was in the wedding, I was not able to get as many shots as I normally would being a photographer, but I'm very grateful to Julia Viniczay for getting the ceremony shots that I wasn't able to! Here are my favorites from Emily + Forrest's special weekend.
The rehearsal dinner on Friday night was just gorgeous!
I've become a huge lover of succulents in bouquets, Emily's was gorgeous!
Thank you so much Emily for asking me to be your bridesmaid, I love you so much! And thank you Forrest for taking such good care of my best friend. XO to you both.
If you haven't heard of Kiss Albums, then let me be the first to tell you how beautiful and wonderful they are! My friend Breanna from Breanna Bell Photography told me about Kiss months ago and as soon as she did, I knew it was perfect for my workflow + more importantly, it was something that my clients would love.
Last week my very first Kiss album came in the mail and I'm so excited to show you all the results of it! This is a mini album that will be going to one of my engaged couples. When I opened it up to inspect it and be sure that it was just right, I squealed because I think it's absolutely adorable.
Kiss gives you the option to have a linen or leather cover, and you get to choose from a variety of colors! This particular one is linen in navy blue. You can ALSO choose whether you want to engrave a title on the front or have a cameo - or both!
The awesome thing about Kiss is that it allows my clients to be a part of the creative process as well. I set up the base template and send the interactive link to my clients who can flip through the pages and write comments about what they would like changed. It means that they'll get exactly what they want!
Kiss album pages can either be thin or thick. These are thick which I think made the quality even better!
And all of the pages are lay flat which means that if you have photos that you want to lay across the page then they won't get lost in a crease!
With Kiss, you have the option of ordering albums with a wooden box to keep them safe and secure. I love this option because it means that they'll be protected!
All of my engaged couples will receive one of these mini albums with their session AND couples who book their wedding day with me have the option of receiving a larger + more filled album of their day!! Email email@example.com to schedule!
