Ajax backyard wedding

Nadya and Taylor | Ajax Backyard Wedding

I am so excited to go back and relive this gorgeous day. Nadya and Taylor had the most epic celebration of their marriage. They knew that they wanted to celebrate with the people that meant the most to them. This meant a sweet and intimate backyard wedding reception in Ajax. Nadya and Taylor had married the week before and so this day was only about partying with their loved ones.

They both have a love of books and music and so they had a lot of musical references scattered throughout. Also can we talk for a minute about Nadya’s insane style! I told her that she looked exactly like a 1950s Disney Princess. Everything from the pin curls to the tea length dress looked so awesome on her and suited her perfectly. It was so joyful to see their family come together to cheer on this amazing couple. It’s a shame that we can’t relive certain days because this one would be on my list for sure.

2018 Year in Review

During the process of going through all of my weddings and sessions for this year and compiling them into this slideshow, I was struck by the concept of love. There are so many people on this planet but each of us have our core group of people who make up our circle of love. Out of billions we connect with just a tiny portion of people above all others and that is so beautiful to me. Our people who make us feel safe and loved and supported.

2018 was one for the books. I was able to photograph so many people in love. There were intimate backyard weddings, campground festivities, hot Summer days and cool Fall rain and plenty of tears coming from my face. But most of all there were people who said I do to a life together.

This year was a leap of faith. It was the year I finally took my business full time and committed to putting my full time energy into my business. It was a year of change. We moved into our current home, adopted our beautiful cat Livy and I finally saw Wicked for the first time. (I know right, have I been living under a rock).

2019 will be another year of beautiful couples, families all together for maybe the first time in a long time. Two families becoming one. Of precious puppies walking their humans down the aisle, of dad’s tears as their daughters have grown. Proud mom’s as they dance with their sons. Another year of laughter, crazy groomsmen and happy tears. Bring it on.
