Spring is just around the corner, literally, and I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for the warmer temps and pretty blossoms! Just as we say goodbye to Winter, I wanted to make sure I shared this gorgeous January wedding I had the honor of capturing for my wonderful friends, Haley & John Mark!
I remember when I met with Haley for the first time, she was so giddy about meeting me! I was so flattered and surprised - LOL. Haley had been following my work on Instagram for quite a while and knew she wanted me to photograph her wedding once John Mark put a ring on it. ;) I love when brides come to me, telling me they knew they wanted me to be their wedding photographer. The amount of trust and value they put in me and my work means the world to me.
I’m sure I am not the only one who falls in love with Haley’s adorable laugh and sunshine personality. Haley really is the sweetest human I have ever met. She is full of so much love, light, and laughter. She wears her heart of her sleeve and she loves with all she has. John Mark is so patient. He adores Haley and loves her so unconditionally. Together, they love hard. They are a ray of sunshine and carry that “southern hospitality” everyone talks about. It is contagious.
Capturing their wedding day was nothing short of an honor and joy for me. That day it poured rain all day long (and by evening it was snowing!). Haley and John Mark embraced the challenges of the icky weather and did not let it put a damper on their special day. I commend them for that!
I’m not sure I can pick just one favorite highlight from their day. The entire day was full of laughter, happy tears, tender, precious moments and so much joy! Jesus was so evident throughout. This wedding was a wonderful way to kick off my 2019 wedding season and I am so happy it started with Haley and John Mark’s wedding! I went home so tired and so blessed. :)
