Herring Wedding_0574


I’m slowly but surely getting caught up on blogging my Fall 2015 weddings. You guys have been so amazing and patient with me! Thank you!

Matt and Holly got married on a GORGEOUS October day this past Fall. I remember so many wonderful things about this wedding from the amazing weather to Holly’s gorgeous dress and veil to the classy black tuxes the guys wore and the beautiful blue bridesmaids dresses the girls wore. I also remember how stunning the florals were, the lovely sunset, and the FUN reception! But what really sticks out to me the most was Matt and Holly’s love for each other, their genuine excitement about marrying each other, their desire to make their marriage centered around Jesus, and Matt and Holly’s families and how much they cared for each other.

These things are the things that always stick out to me the most at weddings. These are the things that I love to see at the weddings I have the honor of photographing.  Yes, flowers and rings are beautiful and fun to photograph, but when I get to be around and photograph a couple like Matt and Holly and families like theirs, those are the times I feel truly blessed to be a wedding photographer.

As always, I could go on and on, but ya’ll have already been waiting to see a blog of Matt and Holly’s photos since October, so I figure I’ll quit my rambling and just show you some photos ;-)  Enjoy!
