{engaged} desiree + brent

The thing I love most about my job is that I get to be in a person's life at a very exciting, joyful time.  The downside is it can also be an extremely stressful time...but that's where I come in.  ;) 
Desi + Brent could easily let worry overtake their happiness (he just finished Air Force training, which meant they couldn't communicate about valuable wedding details for weeks!)...but they're not letting stress steal their joy!  You can tell by the smiles on their faces and the light in their eyes...they're in love and blissfully happy!  Enjoy their engagement photos taken at Mooney's Grove Park.

{engaged} ellie + mark

Everything about this makes me smile. Ellie is the youngest sister of my oldest/dearest friend Hannah, Mackenzie is her gorgeous girl and Mark is the lucky guy who gets to be husband/dad to these amazing girls. The rad blanket in some of the photos belonged to Ellie's late father...a tangible way to include him in this next season of life. I know he is SO proud of his girl and would welcome Mark with open arms. Photographed by another of my favorite humans, Kelli Avila...get ready to swoon.......

The gorgeous Mackenzie...

Can't wait for your August wedding!!!  muah!

{real wedding} tiffany + erick

I can't say enough about this one!  I love seeing a friend enter into a new season of life.  Tiff + Erick's wedding weekend was full of friends, family & fun!  We ate In-N-Out by the pool, played corn hole, got mani/pedis, laughed, danced, ran around making sure every detail was perfect, prayed, and after it was all over, crashed!  Exhausted but happy.  It all resulted in a pretty picture-perfect day.  See for yourself!

From one shoe girl to another...I was in LOVE with these beauties!

 I was honored to also be a part of Tiff's wedding party...I spent half the day like this, half-way ready, as I ran around.

 This girl is flawless! 

Pretty sure I can say he's the cutest ring bearer EVER!

It was an honor to share this moment with Tiff & her dad...love their relationship.

I loved the "royal wedding" theme...fitting for Tiff's love of all things British.

Let me tell you...if you didn't see these brothers tearin' it up on the dance floor, you MISSED OUT!  They've got moooooovessssssssssssss!

Love you two!!!!!!!
