Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Amanda + Bryan: A Boho Wedding at Langdon Farms

August 6, 2021

STUNNING!! That’s all the words I have. This boho wedding at Langdon Farms was INCREDIBLE to say the least! Just looking back over these images as I put this blog together I caught myself smiling and emotional reliving so many parts of the day. So many tears were shed starting with how emotional Bryan became seeing Amanda during their first look. Amanda seriously looked like she stepped out of a bridal magazine in that killer dress!! Model status – no joke!

The Wedding Day

I absolutely LOVE this boho style Amanda and Bryan put together. The super fluffy pampas grass stems were so beautiful against the white roses and dried flowers! I could go on about all the gorgeous details! But, oh, the way they love on their precious daughter, Mary Grace, tugged at my heart strings. Becoming her bonus mommy, Amanda triggered all the water works with her sweet vows to Mary Grace during the ceremony. There is so much love in this family! Amanda and Bryan are from Arizona and come to the Pacific Northwest to visit all the time. They chose to have their wedding here and so many sweet friends and family travelled a distance to celebrate this special day with them!

One thing that was so special was all the sweet little gifts I caught being given out during the day. The first was during the first look. Bryan surprised Amanda with a beautiful little gift as he dabbed away his tears. Then Amanda gave a beautiful bracelet to her new bonus daughter along with a note that moved anyone who was within earshot, followed by a special necklace given to her new mother-in-law. I love how thoughtful and genuine these two are! Every moment of the day took my breath away. Langdon Farms is such a beautiful setting and PERFECT for an unbelievably unforgettable day for Amanda and Bryan. They were an absolute DREAM to work with and we truly felt like family by the end of the day. I can’t wait to see them again when they come back!
