Fashion Blogger Photoshoot For Emily Gemma



Hey everybody I made a new friend!
Of course everyone knows my affinity for fashion, but Emily (you'll know her from the "Sweetest Thing Blog" http://www.thesweetestthingblog.com) far surpasses me. We headed to downtown Bentonville for this session, and it was phenomenal! After all, it is only appropriate that the blogger herself gets blogged about! These are the first set of some of my favorite pictures from the afternoon! Enjoy:)











Talk to you soon,

Atlanta Engagement Session of Joya and Wes



Hey everybody!

Obsessed is an understatement. This couple is total goals. I didn't realize how much I loved Atlanta until I spent time running around the city with Joya and Wes shooting their engagement portraits. Atlanta is full of colorful spots and incredible views. Check out these adorable portraits of this gorgeous couple!

Julianne's Atlanta Family Mini Session



Hey everybody!

Y'all... I've been all over lately, and I love it! I'm finally settled back in Fayetteville and getting caught up on all my editing, and first up is the darling momma and daughter I got to hang out with in Atlanta a couple weeks ago.  We met at a park where the leaves were dynamite and there was plenty of things to play on, so clearly we had a blast. :) . Have a look at my faves:

Stone Chapel at Matt Lane Farm wedding: Anna and Shelton



Hey everybody!

Wonderful wonderful. That's how I want to describe Anna and Shelton's wedding day at the Stone Chapel at Matt Lane Farm.  JLK weddings ran the day so smoothly, which let me be at ease to shoot the way I love to shoot: capturing special moments and beautiful portraits.  For the 500th-ish wedding in a row, I found some great light for my couple - and even some Benny Backlight! Come along as I relive Anna and Shelton's wedding day.  (oh, and gorgeous dress from Tesori in Fayetteville!)

Big Cedar Outdoor Wedding for Lauren and Mike



Hey everybody!

I have the honor of sharing the first ever outdoor garden wedding at Integrity Hills at Big Cedar with you today! Lauren and Mike chose a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding, and the landscaping at Big Cedar Integrity Hills was nothing short of breathtaking. I already love shooting at Big Cedar (they have the absolutely best and nicest staff), so this weekend was so fun for me.

Erin and her team executed this vision flawlessly - this room was gorgeous...

This sunset was insane! I of course had to bring the couple outside from their reception to be photographed with it.  Wow.

And my favorite, romantic portrait from the day - we off-roaded it a bit for this location

How precious are Lauren and her girls. The most.

But the shy flower girl stole my heart.  What a sweet heart!

This moment. Everything.

The area outside at Integrity Hills was a stunning location for a wedding with an incredible view.

I mean, c'mon.  Dream outdoor wedding.











Then we were back inside for the reception - Boom Kinetic brought the party, and Lauren and Mike brought the sweet moments.

But wait... there's more! Lauren and Mike surprised their guests with a fireworks show!



Near the end of the night, Lauren's siblings surprised her with... well, I'm not sure exactly.  But it was hilarious and fun!
