I am afraid of sounding like a broken record talking about how much I adore all of my couples, but here I go again, because Natalie and Dirck are precious to me. I have always loved how they break the mold. They are this wonderful blend of seemingly opposite characteristics and tastes…their lives are a combination of cosmopolitan elegance and down home ranch living. They are continually down to earth and focused on others. The wide spectrum of relationships represented at their wedding is evidence of their magnetism and influence in many people’s lives. I swear, every time I saw Natalie this year, she was more interested in asking about my pregnancy than talking about herself or her wedding. I am continually humbled by the kindness and love of people like this.
This wedding really had it all- beauty and elegance, humor, tears(…LOTS of tears of joy during the ceremony). And these guys know how to have fun! Enjoy….

We gathered saturday to wish our little Zach a happy 1st birthday. He celebrated with cake in places I can not mention in public.
Brotherly love. Alex gives Zach a little good luck snuggle.
There was a ring around the tub………of cake………..seriously.
That is some serious fun people!

Jackie and Kyle are salt of the earth kind of people. I admire the way they live, the things they value, their kindness and generosity. I love that Jackie laughs loud with her whole body, and I love how Kyle laughs adoringly along with her. Sometimes I have to remind people throughout the wedding day to forget my presence and be themselves. To my glee, Jackie and Kyle ignored me so well, that I actually had to raise my voice if I ever did need to get their attention. They really truly wanted what we offer- a concentration on real moments and an almost completely uninterrupted record of the day.
I’ll start off in the bride’s prep room. Lots of energy with this crowd. Here the bridesmaids model their evening gloves for Jackie….

This was a really fun session. I would see some great light or color, and try it out (can be hit and miss- sometimes I try it and it’s nothing), but every time, they got so excited about it with me, and trusted that it was worth the try. And it was!
