Just bare with me as I start off on a tangent... After graduating high school, I decided to get the heck out of my hometown. Like a lot of high school graduates, I wanted to live on my own and explore what's out there. I promised myself I'd never return!
Ten years later, I returned with a baby on the way, a ring on my finger, and a new mortgage to boot! It was one of the best decisions I could've made. Little did I know, that many other high school graduates decided to do the same! The smart ones never left! ;)
As word spreads about my photography, I'm reuniting with many! They're welcoming me into their homes, I get to meet their newborns, capture milestones, and spend every minute with them for their wedding day!!! I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to reconnect with them (my people!) in such a personal way!
With that said, Leah was one of those graduates that convinced Nate that our hometown was the place to be! It really is, Nate! I'll contend to that!
Leah and Nate came to me last Fall and asked me to photograph their wedding. "Of course!" I knew this would be a TON of fun! But they also had a special surprise! Their daughter was due by the end of the year, so we held a maternity/engagement session during that prime time Fall foliage!
Just in time for Christmas, Baby Allison arrived!!!
Leah and Nate were smart and prepared much of their wedding day details before Allison's arrival. Mind you, they were preparing for a baby, a wedding, and working full time jobs - and may I say, looking A+ the whole time! - these guys did a fantastic job and deserved the best wedding day ever! Just short of a sunny blue sky, I'd say they had a pretty awesome wedding that lasted the whole weekend!
I applaud you, Mr. and Mrs. Ellis! I wish you and your whole family lots of love and happiness! Thank you so much for inviting me to capture these special moments!
