boo & brant (married!)

boo & brant have such a beautiful love for each other, a love that was so visibly evident on their wedding day. i loved watching the way they care for one another, look to and at each other.

although their day began with boo sick (and in the ER at 4am!) and ended with brant not feeling well, they gave the day their all. at one point, i told boo if she wanted to rest or take a break to let me know, she smiled and responded with “nope, you only do this day once, let’s keep going”. that determination, amazing attitude, and the way they care for those around them showed me even more how wonderful they are.

the wedding really included the community that raised and shaped boo & brant. old teachers, teammates, family and friends from afar surrounded them. the places we stopped to take photos had meaning. family and friends helped with the gorgeous details boo envisioned (lace wrapped jars, babies breath crowns, flower girls tutu’s, bouquets, baskets, favor, deserts).

boo & brant, thank you for having me document your day!

the evening light was unbelievable (so thankful for the rain that made it possible!). before leaving, i asked boo & brant if i could do just a few more photos. this is how boo & brant are together, natural, no posing.
