Laura. Wes. and Hannah.

What happens when a tropical storm threatens your outdoor wedding for 300? If you are Laura and Wes, you thank God for the blessing of rain, put on a big smile, and have the time of your lives. No kidding. I don’t think I’ve EVER seen a bride more relaxed, nor a groom having more fun at his wedding. These guys were so amazing. Just check out our little after party “trash the dress” session. So much fun. 


I babysat for Laura when she was a little girl living on the farm next to my newlywed sister’s farm. Then, Laura babysat for my children when she was a college co-ed. Laura and Wes will make awesome parents. They have an awesome faith, a strong family value, and wonderful families and friends for support.


I shot this wedding with Kimberly Brooke, and she, Pete and I had so much fun in the rain. Pete was also the officiant and spoke the most life giving, encouraging and challenging homily ever. Kim and Pete are an amazing team, and it is always such an honor for me to shoot with them.
