The Smead Wedding

Every now and again, I get to shoot a wedding that truly brings me to tears. Mark and Lauren are real close friends of mine and as soon as I found out they were engaged, I tried to put a bug in their ear that I would be so honored to shoot their big day. When they finally asked, I said "YES" with a million exclamation points! These two are not only friends, but neighbors, and co-workers! I can't get enough of the Smeads and Conan the Sheltie, or as I like to call him, my new boyfriend.

The Smead Wedding was absolutely stunning. It helped that she had some pretty awesome planners, a photographer that wouldn't leave her alone about the timeline, and so many friends eager to help and pitch in on the day of. The weather was picture perfect, literally. I couldn't have made a day more smoother. Every second was perfectly timed so that the light just made my job a dream. You'll see a few familiar faces in there as well! 

I really could ramble on and on about each fun moment throughout the day but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  A huge thank you to Style Made Simple Events for being awesome and so organized, and Trent Williams for helping me video!

As I mentioned before, Lauren, Mark, and I are all co-workers, so HI RUNNYMEDE! I know all of you are reading this ;) 

Here are just a FEW from Mark & Lauren's gorgeous day!
