Lara + Aaron

From corn field frolicking to rolling in the grass to crazy rides on a pink bike with a banana seat [wish I still had mine,] Lara and Aaron were simply the best at putting up with my crazy ideas. They got married at Tailskid Meadows on the perfect September day. Here are just a few of my favs mostly from our crazy-fun portrait session.

Oh, and someone nice nominated me for the blogger’s choice award [thanks Mike.] You can vote for that here: My site was nominated for Best Photography Blog!

Therese + Mike

I LOVE the Fall. I get so excited for Fall colors and lighting and everything that goes along with the change in the weather. So I couldn’t help but post as many photos as possible from this utterly gorgeous early Fall wedding (because boy did it come early this year.) I just love the colors that the stunning Mike and Therese chose along with Steven Moore Designs. The yellow and orange leaves falling early at Lairmont Manor made things even more magical. Seriously, I could have posted so many more photos of the beautiful couple and wedding…

More vendor notes:

Therese’s beautiful make-up- Shimmer

Catering-yummy! – J Russell

Mike and Therese chose a great band- Billy Joe and the Dusty 45’s

And don’t forget that I love your questions and comments– they make my day!
