{photog's favorite}

When I shoot, I pretty much know what I'm getting as I go. If you ask to see my camera preview, I shudder, because what you see is not likely what I see. And, although for the most part, I know what I will find.....I love it when I come across a little surprise. This sweet one was very quick and did not like to be away from mommy's arms....but, so happy we got this precious one before she realized she was back on the blanket. :)

And, in all honesty, I could post a ton of her brothers as well! Such cutie pies!

I may just have to do that!

{ps...preliminary edit only, background to be edited if printing is needed, but wanted to show her off! precious baby girl!}

{Jacob + Jessica are Married! / Eureka Springs Wedding}

What a beautiful afternoon! Yesterday, Jacob & Jessica exhanged their vows and the breathtaking Crescent Hotel in Eurkea Springs. Thankfully, the rained stayed away and the day was perfect. I met Jessica in the bridal salon as they were wrapping up her make-up. So pretty!

She also reserved the Bridal Salon to get ready in - I loved the soft drinks on a silver platter.

I was completely taken with her flowers........simple Baby's Breath with a beautiful wrap. I absolutely loved them!

First Look!

Such a sweet and beautiful group of girls!

Handsome guys as well!

This is probably one of the funniest ongoing moments of the day......seems that no one remembered........socks? Loved it!

THAT kiss! :)

Such a beautiful day! Jacob {or, should we call you Jason? ha!} and Jessica - my very, very best to both of you! I wish you my very best!

{i do - take II}

Not the marriage....
but, the pictures. ;)

These are dear friends of ours and like so many {me being at the top of the list!} found her wedding pictures a little less than desired. So, she decided she wanted to get back in her beautiful dress and have J get back into a tux {monkey suit according to J} and have some taken that she had wished she had had the first time around.
It was a great evening {despite the fact I fretted all day about the rain and the wet fields} and here is a small sneak peek into a few we got tonight. I am hoping these were more of what she had in mind....
oh, and for the record....I was not the first photographer {wink!}

Of course, the pictures are compressed and resized for the blog.....but, wanted to give you a glimpse! Hope you enjoy these........
And, one more kudos to Justin!

{kevin & elissa / springdale, ar engagement}

Oh, I cannot wait for this wedding! Last night I got to meet Kevin and Elissa and they are so fun and so precious! Their love story is so sweet - one that I can totally relate to! I piled them in with me and we hit as many locations as we could before we exhausted the sun. Their wedding will occur in 3 weeks at a beautiful barn in Gravette, Arkansas. It will be very southern, and very excited!

Kevin & Elissa, here are a few of the many we took, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek. It was great to finally meet you.....

{LOVE this family}

All I can say is that four years ago when I took their first portraits....I truly came to love this family!
Oh, my how this girl has grown up!
{check out the shoes}

I accused him of modeling on the side. Mr. GQ!

The kids brought some of their favorite things.......

Sorry K - you have "feet" in the actual pictures, the blog cut them off.

K - you and B have safe travels to Austin! I am praying you guys get great news!

{taylor & amber are married / fayetteville, arkansas}

Oh! I was so happy to be a part of such a precious evening to celebrate Taylor & Amber's exchange of vows. The ceremony and reception took place at The Stone Chapel at Matt Lane Farms - absolutely beautiful. Here are a few for their sneak peek......

Music plays a very important part of their lives and the night ended with the groom joining a band he plays with in the Fayetteville area. They were awesome! And, it gives me hope that as I sit every Thursday evening and wait as the boys have their piano lessons....that maybe...someday.....{ha!}

The details of the chapel were stunning.....

beautiful nieces of the groom.....

Taylor designed Amber's beautiful ring...

I {heart} mason jars....I will never tire of seeing them.......
LOVED the cake!

Congratulations guys! I am SOOOO jealous as you are flying to Spain for two weeks! It has been a joy to work with both of you as well as having a glimpse into your precious family.
