Makayla + Justin = MARRIED! 9-10-11

I met Makayla and Justin last summer when they asked me to do their engagement images. I knew right off when I met them they were going to be a fun couple! I love when couples are playful and open to just being themselves. Everyone is nervous right before getting portraits done (heck, I’ve still got some nervousness before shoots too). However, once the couple loosens up, it’s all fun after that! Makayla and Justin are so awesome together and it shows!

I had a ton of fun shooting their engagement portraits!

Makayla’s bridals turned out great considering all the things that went wrong that day! My location I had chosen called me an hour before my shoot and said I couldn’t photograph there. Talk about being in a panic! It was pouring outside, and I NEEDED an indoor location. Luckily, with a little bit of stress and sweet talk, a hotel in Ridgeland allowed me to shoot in their lobby. WOOHOO! It was a gorgeous lobby (but I can’t tell you where because that was the only stipulation to them letting me shoot there).

Then came THE WEDDING! It was beautiful! The location was Cedar Grove in Jackson. It was my first time shooting there, and now, it’s one of my favorite places. Makyala and Justin surprised everyone too by actually dancing down the aisle! LOVE IT!

Look at Justin go! He sure knows how to dance!

Ring shots have always been one of my favorite things to photograph at weddings.

I loved the emotion they shared with each other. It really made some beautiful images!


I wish the 2 of you all the happiness in the world as you start your lives together!

I fell in love with photography when I was a kid. It's always captivated me. I started working at a photo lab and started shooting at 18. I'm a hybrid photographer (film & digital). I'm a Christian, and a mom to 3 kids. I'm an avid crafter in my spare time.
