Lee + Sean | Wedding

So, this was the sixth time to head over to Crawfordsville, Arkansas to photograph one of the town’s wonderful families! I shot Lee’s sister’s wedding last year and was absolutely thrilled when she contacted me about shooting her wedding! Lee & Sean are both teachers, selfless and loving, and are a hoot to be around. This day was no exception! Sean’s daughter was so excited to be a princess along with Lee and was over the moon at the celebration of her daddy finding his Queen. Congratulations to Lee & Sean and their families!

A great big thanks to my friend Mark Arnold from Dallas, Texas for coming and shooting with me. Because he’s awesome, I’ve decided to kick off this post with two of his beautiful images! His shots of the ceremony from the balcony, ring shot, and first dance shot at The Cadre are some of my favorites.

Courtney + James | Wedding

There is so much to stinkin’ say about this couple, this day, and just everything. I’m gonna spare you the chat and get right down to business.
First wedding of 2013 and it was good to be kicking the year off this way! I really love this couple to pieces and have a feeling you will too. How can you not??

Ridiculous huge & special thanks to my sweet friend and incredible photographer, Katie. The blogpost is kicked off with an image of hers.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard so many people ask an obviously dressed bride & groom, “Are you going to a wedding?” Hmm… memphis_wedding_photography_amydale_cadre024

Susan + Paul | Wedding

I was thrilled to be able to capture Susan and Paul’s sweet and intimate wedding celebration by the river at the National Ornamental Metal Museum.
It was an incredible evening with a beautiful progressing sunset and time spent enjoying time together.

Susan arrived and saw Paul at the entrance of the grounds. After their first look, they enjoyed a glass of wine together while relaxing by the river.
There is nothing better than a couple who is comfortable with themselves and being with the one they love. These two are filled with love for each other and for life.
Congratulations to you two!


Susan & Paul – 21 June 2012


Susan’s brother and their friend arrived to participate in the ceremony…


After the ceremony, the four sat down for wine and to chat until the sun set…


Susan’s brother, a Catholic priest, blesses the couple while the sun closes the evening…
