Thorncrown Chapel Wedding – Eureka Springs Wedding Photographers – Kevin and Mandy

Mandy and Kevin gave us the opportunity to do something SO fun – a day before session!  We got to wander around Eureka Springs and take our time creating some beautiful portraits for them.  Loved it! 🙂  The next day they had their wedding at the Thorncrown Chapel, and their reception at the Barn in Holiday Island.  Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful couple, or a more beautiful day. 🙂

Eureka Springs Wedding Photographers – The Crescent Hotel – Shawnna and Eric

Shawnna and Eric had a GORGEOUS wedding at The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR.  It was a gorgeous summer day, and this outside wedding was accented by the beautiful pink and white color scheme – so romantic.  And I have to say that Shawwna and Eric were a totally darling and sweet couple – they definitely made our jobs easy!  Their reception was immediately following the ceremony, and was held in the Crescent Hotel’s Crystal Dining Room.  Loved the beautiful simple decor, and LOVED the oyster shots! 😉  Congrats you two!!!

Crystal Bridges Wedding – Northwest Arkansas Photographers – Jehon and Jennifer

Ahhhhh….Jennifer and Jehon’s Crystal Bridges wedding was so dreamy. 🙂 ( Funny enough, it was actually on my own wedding anniversary!)  It was a beautiful summer day in Bentonville, AR and we enjoyed every minute of it.  Crystal Bridges is such a fabulous venue for weddings and receptions.  We definitely recommend it!  Enjoy!

Eureka Springs Wedding Photographers – Thorncrown Chapel – Matthew and Tahnya

Wow, guys, this wedding was SO COOL.  It was just Matthew and Tahnya and they had the gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel all to themselves!!  PLUS, (and this is a big plus), it was STORMING.  A huge storm was blowing in, and it caught us with a downpour after about 5 minutes of shooting outside after the ceremony.  It was AWESOME!!!

In addition to all that, I have to say, I LOVED Tahnya’s pink dress!  The world should have more pink wedding dresses. 🙂  That is all.

Enjoy!!

Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel – Arkansas Wedding Photographers – T.J. and Rebecca

So, I just have to say that T.J. and Rebecca were the sweetest couple!!!  Both in the medical field, they just had the kindest most easy-going personalities.  We loved working with both of them and their families (which is great because we’re shooting Rebecca’s sister’s wedding later this year)!

We were blessed with a beautiful warm day that went from rain to sunshine and perfection.  Of course, no matter the weather, weddings at the Mildred B. Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista, AR are BOUND to be gorgeous! 😉  And this was no exception.  I have to admit, though, that it helps when you have a STUNNING couple like T.J. and Rebecca!

Reception: Fred’s Hickory Inn

Wedding Cake: Rick’s Bakery

Wedding Planner:  Cindy Tignor

Mt. Nebo Wedding – Arkansas Wedding Photographers – Seth and Krista

Oh my goodness, Krista and Seth’s wedding at Mt. Nebo in central Arkansas was GORGEOUS!!!  First of all…what a beautiful couple – LOVE them. 🙂  Krista and Seth had such fun personalities – their wedding was complete with neon sunglasses and dancing and funny hats in the photobooth.  To top it all off, the wedding was on top of a mountain with probably the most amazing views I have ever seen in all of Arkansas.  Wow.  Really – WOW.  You’ll notice the first few portraits are of the “first look” – love it when the Bride and Groom decide to see each other before the wedding and they get that intimate moment to take it all in.  Also…totally adored the three generation of hands…bride, mother, and grandmother!

So, if you love Fall and pumpkins and bright leaves and twinkling lights…be prepared to fall in love with this wedding. 🙂

I love my life – and I know what I believe

Just when you thought life couldn’t get any busier…it does. 🙂  My beautiful Mother has been in the hospital recovering from a recent surgery to remove a new cancerous tumor.  It’s times like these that I feel the pressure of work and balancing time with family – and then suddenly it disappears.  Sitting in the hospital, with my best friend, watching the clock tick and time go by – I remember what is important.  That time just hanging out with my mom is priceless, the time I sit on my couch with my kiddos laughing about nothing is priceless, every time my Love walks through the door and hugs me and tells me he loves me is priceless.  That is the substance of my life.  That is what I value.  God has been immeasurably good to me.  My God is love and he has shed his love on me.  I don’t blame him for my problems, I give my problems to him.  My heart rests in him.  My soul lets go of pain and stress and weight in light of his love.  A lot of people comment on how happy I am, how positive I am.  I just want to say that despite the wonderful things that I have, I’m this way because of what I know.  I know beyond doubt that I am loved, that I am forgiven, that I am saved, and that I am never alone.  What I know makes me love my life, and if I can share that with you, I want to. 🙂

Arkansas Wedding Photographers – Fayetteville Engagement Session – Eric and Anastasiya

Eric and Anastasiya, who currently reside in Delaware, stopped in Fayetteville on their last trip to Arkansas just long enough for us to do an engagement session with them!  Most couples we shoot engagements for also end up being wedding clients, but this gorgeous couple will be tying the knot in Italy!  (Lucky!!!)  We had such a fun time shooting their session, hope to have the chance to do another one with them in the future. 🙂  Enjoy!!

Arkansas Family Portrait Photographers – Nate and Jessica

Here’s another one of our mini family sessions!  We have been doing more and more of these sessions as the years go by.  Our brides become mothers and they want a photographer they can trust to capture their new family life!  In Nate and Jessica’s case, we didn’t shoot their wedding – but we did shoot one for close friends of theirs. 🙂  I love that we’ve been able to shoot them as a couple with a dog, a couple expecting a child, a couple with a newborn, a couple with a precious bubbly baby, and now a couple with an adorable little toddler.  How completely wonderful!!

We have never advertised as family portrait photographers in the past because we are SO busy with weddings and the labor intensive process of retouching those portraits and designing books and products, etc. for our wedding clients. However, we’ve been training a new photographer (shout out to Nicona Jones!!) and she is going to be working with us to provide family and children’s portrait sessions starting next month!  So exciting!!!  Be on the lookout for a new website devoted just to the families and kiddos! 😉

Arkansas Family Portrait Photographers – John and Allison

Thought it would be nice to show you guys some of the smaller sessions we do in between all of the weddings!  We actually shot John and Allison’s wedding, so we were excited when they said they were making a trip to our area and wanted us to shoot a family session for them. 🙂  I can’t even tell you how blessed we feel to have such wonderful clients.  Love them!!!
