Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

“She had the biggest crush on him, but wouldn’t gather the courage to actually talk to him for the next few months. Once they finally got to talking, he asked her out on a date, and a year later, they were married at Chateau Lill with the prettiest classic details. Modern touches like their signage placed all over the venue, and Kaia’s earrings and jewelry were the perfect finishing touches on the day.”

“Holland and Christian both wanted epic photos of their bridal party, their first look, and their romantics (the photos of just the bride and groom), so they settled on this epic abandoned building which literally could not have been more perfect for these happy moody lovers. Their ceremony space was exploding with moody vibes, and I was absolutely obsessed with their unique arch, florals, and the accent colors of the bridal party!! The rest of the night was a party equipped with fat heads, a taco bar to showcase the couples love for chipotle, lots of laughs, and sweet tender moments between the parents of the bride and the bride herself.”

“It was seriously the BEST DAY. And if you can freakin’ believe it, it was forecasted to be down pouring with a side of lightening and thunder….IN THEIR BACKYARD. Yeah, not the best news to hear…but the second I got their house for getting ready photos, the sun was shining, and the sky was blue, with not a cloud in sight. Jordan thanked her Grandma in heaven for the best weather on her wedding day”

…Throughout high school, I never believed I could do photography full time, let alone have people hire me for their wedding day. Jordanne never seemed to think twice about it. It was always “oh duh, Kayla will photograph us/them”.
