on the wings of love: lauren and adam are married

Lauren and Adam were the first wedding of 2011 and after their engagement session, I could hardly contain my excitement for their big day. Not only were they incredible in front of the camera, but their love for one another is so apparent. Nothing is easier or more fun to capture than a love this precious!

Lauren began her wedding day morning at All Me Salon, at the hands of the talented Jenny Reichart. The lighting was beautiful, Lauren sparkled and sweet memories were made between her family and friends.

To keep on schedule, Lauren asked us to transport her dress and other wedding day goodies to the beautiful Palmetto Club, for some detail shots before she arrived. Now that is how you trust your photographer!! Yes, we may have driven 30 miles per hour the whole way there…


She slipped into her Lili Isaac gown with such grace.

Lauren is clearly the most reflective bride I’ve ever had the honor of photographing. It was such an honor to watch her take everything in…it was like a dream unfolding before her eyes.

I LOVE this image of Adam, that my hubby and second shooter Rahul captured. He looks equally as introspective as his bride. Certainly, it must have been running through his mind, that not only was he getting married, but in less than a week moving half way around the world with her. What an incredible adventure for this couple!

We swept the bride away for a few minutes to capture these beautiful images of her in her wedding day attire. Isn’t she lovely?!

I love that you can see the tiny buttons all the way down Lauren’s dress in this picture.

One of my favorites!

A few minutes with the handsome groom in uniform…

The first time Adam saw his gorgeous bride. You couldn’t have wiped that smile off his face…

…and could you blame him?

Isn’t the “K” in the aisle a wonderful and very personal touch? And the black chairs…perfect!

Couple time of course!

A man in uniform, kissing his new wife, with a flag in the background. Perfection!

Hands down, my favorite shot of the new Mr. and Mrs. I would blow this up in an instant for my walls!

Instead of favors for their guests, Lauren and Adam made a donation to the Air Force Aid Society and shared this thoughtful gesture with their friends and family on a bookmark that we had printed for them. What a super idea!

Love this first dance picture. I’m swooning, seriously! Ah, sweet love!

Parents of the bride, so precious the way she still looks at him with such adoration.

This image was captured during a sweet and tender presentation to the bride and groom, where the years of marriage were added up amongst family members and Lauren and Adam were challenged to use the examples of their loved ones to persevere in their commitment to one another. What a tender moment when Lauren’s mom rested her head on her father’s shoulder. It captures so much love and emotion, which is exactly how I will remember their day.


Congratulations Lauren and Adam! It has been such an honor getting to know you and your families better. I pray God’s richest blessings over you, as you begin your new life together! May these pictures be a sweet reminder of your incredibly beautiful day!
