This week marks the start of wedding season for me! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be heading into this year's season. (Did I mention I'll be in Iowa and Colorado this year!?! Eeeeep!) To start the week off, though, I want to send some love to THIS couple, who celebrated their first anniversary yesterday! Happy One Year, you two!!! I'll forever remember your day, for so many reasons - the vows, you two, your family, and new seasons in life. I hope you had an amazing day, and cheers to many many more years!!

When a bride slips on her dress, and the summer storms are rolling in over the Blue Ridge Mountains, there's nothing more beautiful than to see her dancing in the wind, am I right?? ***

So, a little hiatus had to be had, you guys. Strep hit the house, snowstorms are changing up my routine with the girls...but it's nice to be back! Speaking of, anyone else get the feeling like these little springy warm spurts in between these snowstorms are like first looks without the peek? They make ya giddy and crazy excited, but then BAM! You still can't get a peek! I'm so ready for the days of warm breezes, my peeper frogs singing me to sleep, and the sunshine on my face...and I know I'm not alone! ***

My feed's always full of color, and I love it that way! But I think it's about time I start sharing some of my most favorite black & whites. There's something so dreamy and so emotional about them, don't you think?

Heads up! I only have a couple of fall weekend dates available, and then 2018 is completely booked! (But if you're eloping during the week, come say hi!! I have a few surprised up my sleeves!)

You know...just those moments under the veil when I announce that I'm comin' in. There's nothing like telling a couple of mine to get their kissing game on...only to make them play a little keep away or to sneak in and say hi. It always results in laughter and some serious ice breaking. ...and why I always carry gum...

At the end of this month, it's time to hit wedding season full throttle! I'm beyond excited for months spent celebrating love and relationships, but I'm even more excited to go into this season taking a few steps back each day and to be in the moment and focus on the in-betweens. Those quiet moments before nights of dancing and laughter like this one shared between Melissa and Michael. We finished up their GORGEOUS sunset portraits, and on my way into the building through one entrance, I caught them walking through @earlymountain's gorgeous landscape to sneak around back. The light, the calm, the flowers, their hands held tightly...walking into the next chapter together.

Though it's beautiful, I totally admit it, we're covered in slushy wet snow today, and all I can think of are the days ahead that are full of warm breezes, sunsets at 8PM, my feet on the dash, hands out the window, and romantic, lingering kisses. ***

Right about this time last year, we were chasing waterfalls, laughing, and sharing the excitement over these two exchanging vows. Vows that will forever be some of my favorites. A woman thanking her father for showing her mother what it means to love a woman and showing her what was possible. A woman thanking her father in law for raising a man she trusts will do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have I ever told you how much you all make me love my job? ❤️

Oh, those gorgeous golden yellows, oranges, and reds must be on everyone's minds, because my fall requests just went nuts over the last 24 hours! Planning ahead, y'all? I don't blame you a bit.
