What a joy it was getting to capture Shelby & Gunnar's beautiful spring wedding day this past Friday!! The forecast called for a LOT of rain, & even though it did rain on & off most of the day, it didn't affect the joy that these two & their families & friends had!! I absolutely loved getting to capture all of the sweet moments that made up this day - from Shelby's first look with her dad to she & her bridesmaids laughing through the wind & cold for their portraits, to Gunnar & Shelby reading letters from each other & finally getting to see each other for their first look, it was truly an amazing day to be a part of!!
I say it often, but I'll say it again - I get to work with THE sweetest brides in the world!! From the moment I met Shelby, she has been such a joy to work with & I'm so thankful that we have become friends throughout this process of working together during she & Gunnar's engagement & wedding season! She even asked if she & I could take a picture together at the end of the night, & that meant the absolute world to me! I just know Shelby is going to be the best wife to Gunnar, & I know he will be the sweetest husband, always looking out for what's best for her & taking care of her! I can't wait to see what's in store for their journey as husband & wife!
I'm super thankful that I got to work with the amazing staff of Fresh Cut Catering & Floral once again, & Wendy & her team did SUCH an incredible job as always! Anna (one of Shelby's bridesmaids), Kayla (Shelby's MOH) & Anna's mom did an amazing job doing all of the girls' hair & makeup! I loved that Shelby incorporated her friends in such a special way!! As always, it was a pleasure to work with Phillip (better known as DJ 51-50) who did a great job with all of the music & lighting for Shelby & Gunnar's day! One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to work with some of the best vendors in Mississippi, & Shelby & Gunnar couldn't have chosen a better team to make their day amazing!!
Shelby & Gunnar - thank you both from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to be your photographer. I hope these photos will be a daily reminder of the awesome joy the Lord has given you together, & I can't wait to see all that He has in store for y'all's future together!!
