2017 was such an amazing year, we had the pleasure of capturing over 50 weddings and 25 wedding videos between Kyle and I. I truly can’t say I had a favorite wedding, but this one definitely makes me emotional! Likely because Jon and Bri are my friends and very close to my heart, so seeing them tie the knot was extra special! Not to mention when Jon cried like a baby when Bri walked down the isle and it made us all cry! Surrounded by their family and friends in a beautiful canyon they tied the knot at a new and upcoming wedding venue Windmill Canyon at Hoyranch! It was absolutely stunning, every little detail of their rustic outdoor wedding was touched by the golden sunset hour and truly special.
How did you meet? We met years ago when the BI was the place to be on Wednesday nights lol but didn’t really talk. He says my nose was in the air which is why I didn’t pay attention to him back then lol I so did not have my nose in the air
His best friend Brian was having a baby shower and that is where we saw each other again. We were talking and drinking most of the day together. He left with his then girlfriend and we talked on and off for a few months as friends and then in February of 2013 we started talking more and more and went on our first date in March of 2013. It was history from then on!
How did you know she/he was the one? I knew from the get go that he would be the man I married. I believe I told him after two months lol that we were gonna get married one day. No one had ever really shown me how I should be treated the right way until Jon.
I knew she was the one when she went on the first trip away from me and all I wanted was her to get home. She’s my best friend and can’t imagine living without her.
You and Kyle always make us feel so comfortable so it was easier to get us at our best us. I have been around other photographers and it just wasn’t easy to get that real smile or emotion out.
