Their house

It’s their house. A house where animals are rescued and brought in to call it home. A house where Harry Potter is read out loud. Where he cooks her dinner almost every night. Where the yard is big enough for dogs to run and play. Where history is celebrated and created.

Baby yawns, towers, and knock-knock jokes

Continuing with our August shoots of documenting families at home. It’s so hot, we took this chance to document families in and around their homes — and to press pause for a minute on the little things that happen in real life that we will want to remember later in life. The details that we don’t usually think to capture as we’re going about daily life. The things that might not make it on our family Christmas card, but that we’ll wish we could go back to relive once kids are big and life is different. I loved my time with this sweet family in their adorable home.

The things Saturday mornings are made of

These are the things we’ll remember. The things Saturday mornings are made of.

Princess dresses. Eating on the countertops. Chocolate chip pancakes. Playing dress-up. Laughing. Raspberries on fingers. A single teardrop when mom cut your pancake on accident. Dogs. Tickling. And lots of love.

Mimsy and Jeff’s Wedding at The Gallery

Smiles, smiles, and more smiles. When Mimsy talked about what she hoped to capture in the images from the day she and Jeff got married, it was emotion. Reactions from the people they care most about, throughout the day. The big things and small things — the people, interactions, and the details that all meant something to them. My most favorite part about wedding photography is watching people (through my camera lens) and waiting for emotion. This day was full of sweet moments, big smiles, lots of joy. I hope the images help tell the story of how loved Mimsy and Jeff are, and how much excitement bubbled over on their wedding day.

Enjoy this preview of their day, and a huge special thanks to my wonderful second shooter, Keshia Pietz, who skillfully captured the day alongside me. I love the shots she captured (featured in this post) of the guys getting ready and of Mimsy and her dad before she walked down the aisle, among others. The day was coordinated by the lovely Sarah Quinlivan with Quintessential Events. The gorgeous florals and event design for the ceremony and reception were by Blue Bouquet.

Congratulations, Mimsy and Jeff!
