I love all my couples, but Kami and Michael have been extra special. On the day of their engagement session, we actually previewed our current house, and since the move, attending our church, and just clicking with the two of them, we’ve been blessed to get to know them over the past few months. We (my family and I) LOVE these two!  There were so many sweet moments from their day. A few of my favorite parts of the day included, seeing Kami read Michael’s hand written note to her before the wedding, and of course, the first look. (those are always my favorites)
Kami’s mom and dad are such sweet people. I should have took a behind the scenes shot of Mike on a ladder with the tree clippers for this shot! lol. Thanks Mike! I love how the shots turned out! 😉
Michael chose a few perfect gifts for Kami, including a new pair of running shoes and a sweet personal gift documenting special places they’d been throughout their relationship. Nothing kills time like a good ole fashioned hangman game.

“I LOVED MICHAEL, EVEN FROM THE START. HE WAS SO PATIENT WITH ME, AND HE JUST CONTINUED TO PURSUE ME, EVEN WHEN I WAS SO DIFFICULT. I’VE BEEN STRESSED MY WHOLE LIFE AND THEN I MET MICHAEL, AND ALL THE SUDDEN HE HELPED CALM MY STRESS…AND I’M LIKE “WHAT IN THE WORLD? I MET A BOY AND HE HELPED CALM MY STRESS! MOM, I THINK HE’S THE ONE!”” -KAMI

“KAMI IS ALWAYS THE JOY OF THE ROOM. ANYTIME SHE WALKS IN, NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON, YOU CAN FEEL THE ENERGY CHANGE….I ALWAYS HAD THIS DREAM GIRL IN MY MIND AND I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT SHE WAS POSSIBLE, BUT SHE KEPT CHECKING OFF THE BOXES ON MY CHECKLIST, AND HERE WE ARE THREE YEARS LATER” – MICHAEL

Kami has such a special bond with her parents. I loved the gifts she chose for them. I’ll never forget that Kami described her dad as one of her best friends when I first met her. That just stuck with me. I love the bond between these two. Look at these adorable littles! When Kami and Michael told me how many attendants they were having I admit I was a little worried. However, these guys ROCKED!!! One of the largest, but easiest group of friends I’ve ever worked with.
Michael is a former basketball star on the Greenville (now University) College team, so I thought it was fitting that we do lineup run through for the new Mr. and Mrs. Hohm before heading into the reception! The wedding party was changing “Hohm! Hohm! Hohm! Hohm!” Love it!!!

K + M,

So much JOY came from your wedding day! I loved being a part of your wedding day, but I’m most excited about journeying with you AFTER the wedding. It’s not something I get the privilege of doing. I pray that the Lord will bless your marriage and continue to guide you as you pursue Him together.

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” Song of Solomon 6:3

Love you guys!

A few years ago we met Lane at our church.. or maybe it was when he came to our small group at our house. Isn’t it great when you can’t even pinpoint the moment you met someone because it feels like you’ve known them forever? We loved him, our kids loved him, and he became a part of our “family”. It wasn’t long after we’d met Lane that he started talking about this gal, Jen. Jen and Lane met on the campus of Missouri Baptist University, and I can still remember the sweet and almost giddy grins on Lane’s face when he told us about wanting to pursue Jen, and not long after that, Jen started becoming a regular topic of conversation. I was so excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding!

Jen and Lane both love volleyball. Jen played on MOBAP’s sand volleyball team and Lane plays recreationally every chance he gets. That being said, naturally they are both jealously tall. During a bridal consult I sometimes write notes to myself. On Jen and Lane’s notes, I wrote in bold letters, “STEP STOOL!” lol. I remembered, and met Jen and Lane on my side of the river for their engagement session.  They were so incredibly sweet together. My favorite was when they would make each other laugh. Looking forward to October!

Dear, sweet Nicole is such a treasure to have as a friend. She is caring, smart, kind, and fun. It’s these things that ensure that she will be a wonderful mother.  I’ve been so blessed to have her as friend not just for a season of life, but throughout the last 10 years. I can’t wait to see her become a mom. She’s going to knock it out of the park. Her sweet husband Ben is also bound to be an amazing dad. I’ve watched Ben’s sweet and caring heart love and support Nicole through the years. They know how to love each other well. In the wise words of my husband, “Put your marriage first and your children will know loving parents.” Nicole, I’m so happy for you and excited to see you blossom into motherhood.  Every. single. moment. is worth it.

Little Miss Mathewson,

You are SO loved, by many family and friends.  I can’t wait to hold you and snuggle you!

I just knew that Melissa and Nolan’s wedding day would be a nice change of pace for me; a small wedding and relaxed schedule. What I didn’t know is how truly precious this backyard bed and breakfast wedding would be! Melissa and Nolan are just the sweetest together. Everything about their day was perfect for them, from their thoughtful gifts and handwritten notes, to ending their wedding day at a favorite pizza joint!

Melissa and Nolan, thank you for asking me to be a part of your day! I’m so honored, and am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for you.
