Tulle dress magic is my favorite kind of magic. ✨ Courtney’s wedding details were allllllll kinds of beautiful. Not as beautiful as her smile when she was OFFICIALLY pronounced Mrs. O’Steen, but pretty darn close. 💓
Wedding Magic ✨
This was my last one of my FIRST ever wedding season + wow was it a good ending. I began the season with so many mixed emotions. I was mostly terrified that I wouldn’t even like it, and that the pressure of capturing the most important day of two peoples lives would outweigh the good feeling of it +. could be done way better by someone else. But it taught me so many things. Not only was it FUN, it was exciting, emotional as crap (in a good way- I legit cried at every single one), thrilling, and magical. I can’t even describe how fulfilling it is to be able to be apart of such an amazing thing. For this wedding in particular, I got to drive straight up this mountain in a 4 wheeler thingy and it was definitely an adventure.
I love all of my couples and am so thankful that they were the ones to introduce me into such a beautiful new season of my business and life.
Cheers to the next one! 🤙🏼

This is what love looks like. Pushing through rain and wind at high elevation, cheering each other on, sharing a canister of oxygen, committing to each other and to a life of strength through adversity, daily adventure and life changing experiences. Mike and I are headed up to alpine land again today to photograph an engagement session for one of our 2020 wedding couples and we’re so excited!

Fall-ing in love with the golden season. #imcheesy 🍂
Wanna know a secret? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been stressing about these photos for WEEKS. 😭 I'm serious, ask Chris, he's been reassuring me multiple times a day for the past month that I don't absolutely stink at my job. I've given myself migraines staring at one picture for so long, I've convinced myself that all of my favorite images lately are terrible and that I have no clue what I'm doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is any of that true? Probably not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what the Fall season is like for photographers. You always see people posting about how October is terrible and that's because by the time we get to October, we're already overworked and exhausted. We feel like failures, we're stressed and just trying to make it through without having a complete meltdown. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why do we put ourselves through this? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday, I delivered Ryan & Abby's wedding video (the first I've ever attempted) and Ashley & Kaleb's engagement session (the one I've been stressing about for weeks) and immediately received so many grateful "thank you's" and "I love these", even a "You've outdone yourself"... and I instantly felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.
We do this because of YOU.
We stress ourselves out and take time away from our own families for YOU. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We don't do this because of the money, we do this because we truly love what we do and we love capturing YOUR beautiful memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So next time you get your pictures taken in the fall, make sure you thank your photographer. Trust me, it will mean the absolute world to them! ❤
Throwing it back to these cuties in the desert because I’m going back to JTree this week and I’m so pumped! 🙌🏼😍🔥🌾
