2013 Recap | {Emily and Austen}

Emily and Austen shared one of the most emotionally filled and purposeful weddings of the year. Emily has this warmth about her and she was filled with absolute joy and a calm that's rarely seen in the eyes of a bride on her wedding day. She prepared in the cutest little cottage at The Farm, surrounded by her girlfriends and her mom. I was absolutely smitten by her lace dress the detail was exquisite and when she put it on.. I really believe this dress was made specifically for Emily. It was the definition of perfection! Emily took the longest walk to see her groom but she didn't seem to mind... it was the perfect Spring day. The sun was shining and they were surrounded by endless fields and birds a chirping in the trees. Austen and Emily's pictures were some of my most memorable to date. It's not often I work with couples who are at such ease in front of the camera as these two were. They were simply happy to be together- to laugh and share their excitement for the events to come and their love pours through every single image we captured.

Everything about their ceremony from the setting under the barn to her grand entrance down the stairs to their friends surrounding them with their love and prayers made their ceremony so memorable and sweet to be part of.

Moments shared with loved ones are some of my absolute favorite to capture. Typically these are after the "formal" portraits and just moments shared when they tend to think the pictures are over... but it's in those moments the sweetest moments occur. the_farm_wedding_outdoor_ceremony_creative_candid_emotional_wedding_pictures_beautiful_natural_light_118 the_farm_wedding_outdoor_ceremony_creative_candid_emotional_wedding_pictures_beautiful_natural_light_126 the_farm_wedding_outdoor_ceremony_creative_candid_emotional_wedding_pictures_beautiful_natural_light_151Emily and Austen- Thank you for trusting me with such a precious, love and emotionally filled day.
