A quick backstory….Brad is my boyfriend, Stephanie is Brad’s sister, making her my sister-in-law. She married Dave Johnson when she was 18 years old and they were married for 20 years, then they took a bit of a break…and then they got married AGAIN this past fall in Clarksburg. I loved how their wedding invite was titled ‘ taking a mulligan’. Stephanie often told me how disappointed she was with her first wedding’s photos, so this time around, we hooked it up ! There are so many cool places to go in Clarksburg we went a bit crazy shooting some rad photos! Since I love Stephanie and Dave so much this was one of the most fun photo sessions of the year. Of course my cute boyfriend Brad helped me the whole time and even found locations that were pretty amazing. Go BRAD ( check out the big brain on Brad ).
If there was ever a family that you would want to be a part of it is the Haynes family. Just some of the best people on earth. I LOVE this family and feel so very fortunate to be a part of the Haynes/ Johnson clan. Stephanie and Dave had the cutest, most intimate wedding in their backyard with their 3 girls by their side. My favorite, Rev. Jeri Murphy officiated and brought her unique warmth to the whole event. Very relaxed and filled with true love, their wedding was just perfect !
Um, are you KIDDING ME with this turned over tree. Man alive I was in heaven

So I LOVE it when my brides tell me they blog stalk me. Ali told me how addictive blogs were for brides…and now IT IS HER TURN to be on the blogs. Ali and Daniel were a joy to work with, such up-beat and lighthearted couple. Their effervescent yet easy going personalities set the tone for the whole day: relaxed and fun ! These two were ecstatic to be getting married to each other. Their ceremony was to perfect and filled with so much emotion and sheer joy. With the beautiful Lakes of the Pines behind them during their vows, they were so full of great expressions and love. Daniel was trying so very hard not to cry but I knew those tears would flow. I felt so very fortunate to be the one chosen to capture their big day. My LOVE for these two ran deep ! Here is a peak into their special special day:
I LOVE this photo of Alison ! She is just stunning on her special day.
I LOVED this moment my second shooter captured right before the ceremony.
