Genuine is the best word I can use to describe Kate + Andrew. After spending a short amount of time talking with them, it’s not hard to see that they strive for authenticity and intentionality in everything they do. I’m so excited to share their cute OTR engagement session and photograph what I know is going to be an incredible wedding day this Summer.

You may recognize Brittney + Alex from their beautiful garden inspired wedding. A few months prior to their wedding, they graciously stepped in front of my lens so I could try a few things I learned at a workshop I attended. Here are a few favorites from their session!

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
“For Mike, it was our vows. It was a very emotional experience, both delivering and hearing the commitments we were making. For Lauren, it was the first look. She wasn’t feeling so hot but forgot all about that the moment she stepped outside in the courtyard to see Mike. She felt alive and excited for the night to come.”

What was your favorite part of the planning process?
“From Lauren: I actually hated the planning process and wouldn’t want to do it again. But, we both agree that picking you (the photographer) was the most exciting part, because we are both aesthetically minded and it was one area that we knew was important to us and that we were willing to spend money on.”

Funniest memory from your wedding day?
“Well…. it is funny only now, looking back on it, but Lauren being in the hospital the night before with dehydration after having food poisoning was definitely one for the books.”

If you could do everything all over again, would you change anything?
“Probably wouldn’t eat that salad on Thursday ;)”

Any advice for future brides/grooms?
“Just try to focus on why you’re actually getting married. Yes, the flowers and the dress and the food are fun parts of it, but the bottom line is that you are promising your life to this other person. Do your wedding for you. Not for other people, not for the material spectacle that weddings have come to be. Because in the end, it is just about the two of you.”

Wow, what a beautiful day. Not only in the gorgeous details or lovely, minimal venue, but in every way that Abbie + Keith’s family + friends showed their love for these two. There’s something incredible that happens when less than a hundred people gather in a small room to witness two people becoming husband and wife.

I look forward to photographing more intimate weddings like Abbie + Keith’s!
