Luke & Alainna's wedding was one that I had been eager for from the moment I started editing their engagement session in late January. Not only did they photograph incredibly well (then again they're a beautiful couple, so it makes sense) aesthetically, the love they have for one another was easy to capture as well. Needless to say, I had ample motivation to study for and complete my finals; having the opportunity to capture the wedding of this sweet couple could motivate me to run a marathon!
Saturday, May 21st couldn't have been a more perfect day for an outdoor wedding. Every detail of the day was breathtaking--from the flower collar the bride's dog wore to the mason jars filled with flowers that lined the aisle. The Barnes at Timber Creek was where the preparation, ceremony and reception took place and this lovely venue provided endless possibilities when it came to photographing Luke & Alainna's special day. It was an immense privilege to go through each step of the wedding day with this gorgeous couple and it is my pleasure to now share the (condensed version) celebration of Luke & Alainna! Enjoy & God bless.

This summer has been a delight so far. From beginning with the annual Florida family vacation to drinking copious amounts of iced coffee (I'm actually drinking some now), it has been soothing and sweet. It has also been a season of reflection and reinvention. A season to look at life and see it for all that it is. A time to take in the details; to write them in my mind and on memory card.
I like to think of photography as a way to visually document life. So here's a visual documentation of my summer so far. It began in Florida, where I spent two weeks with my family. The summer class (microeconomics) I'm taking began two days into the trip. Ten days after returning from vacation I went on a mission trip to Ensenada Mexico with my church. Following our return to the United States I celebrated the Fourth of July with my family (and spent a night catching fireflies in mason jars with my sisters). Other events in July have included numerous trips to the Warren (Wichita's beloved movie theater), taking the first series of my sister's senior photos, attending a lantern fest (AND pretending I was a Disney princess) with my dad and repainting my room. Other areas of delight and photography include letter-writing and fresh fruit. Without further ado, here are the photos, which are more enjoyable to look at than words.
