Danny + Stephanie {Part 1}

Oh my word. This wedding was so sweet and precious I cried…. professionally of course… through the whole thing. Stephanie has always been very endearing to me, with her vibrance and enthusiasm. Danny is the strong and silent type, but even he can’t help at least smirk, if not smile when Stephanie is gushing over him. :) They truly shared their hearts’ desires through the way they spent their day. They clearly value Jesus as their greatest treasure, and each other as precious gifts from Him. You can feel when you are with them how much they desire to serve each other as they embark on their journey together AND to serve others. Everyone in attendance felt loved and special just– like family. Thank you guys for letting me share this day with you. (and thanks to the ever wonderful Lori-Lynn Navarro for shooting with me!)

I love that we got to do their getting ready, first sight, and portraits in the YARD of their new, first home together! So special. I’m going to cry again…

Wade + Jen {Wedding Day Part 1}

This day was a most gorgeous day in every way. I adore the love stories that come with each couple I get to meet and each is dear in its own way. This is one of those that makes me ridiculously excited in a “It’s about time somebody realized how amazing this lady is!” way. I’m sure Wade’s family feels the same about him, I just happen to have known Jen longer.

Love cannot be rushed, nor the paths God has laid that lead to love be traveled more quickly than what He intends and I think Wade & Jen’s story shows that no matter what is encountered on the path to your soul mate, it’s always worth it.

Thank you for including me in a day that was filled with anticipation, joy, people, love, and Jesus. As always, much thanks to my sis Lori-Lynn Navarro for capturing this day with me, in particular, for the photo on the Hymn “All The Way My Savior Leads Me.” More posts on this one to come!

The Shoes copy

The wedding was an intimate yet elegant family and friend affair, surrounded by the raw beauty of the Yucaipa foothills. Here are a few portrait shots from the day (from the Em-cam), with many more to come (can’t wait to see Laura’s roll!) Congratulations you two! Click on “read more” to see more…
