Paige & Shawn

I awoke to storms.. loud thunder claps and rain pelting my window pane. Not a great wake up call when your photographing an outdoor wedding. As I showered and prepared my equipment for the day the thunderstorm continued outside, even knocking the power out for a brief time. As the hour approached for Paige & Shawn's wedding though the skies cleared and gave way to a breathtaking blue. The weather couldn't have come together more perfectly... and it certainly was an incredible day for an adorable couple.

Paige & Shawn had such a beautiful intimate outdoor wedding. It truly was a coming together of family and friends to celebrate their deep level of love and respect for one another. A good friend neighbor Bob performed the ceremony and Shawns brother made the cake. He even shipped in all of his baking pans from his home in the south to make sure things were done right! Like I said... this was an intimate affair that made even me feel like a member of the family. Paige & Shawn thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. It was such an honor.... and of course the cake was an added bonus! :)

Hi Jennifer,

The pictures are gorgeous!! We love them! Shawn and I are having fun going through the gallery and looking at all of them. It's a wonderful way to relive our wedding day! We also got a good laugh out of how much his nephew hammed it up for the camera. :-) Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best, Paige and Shawn

What can I say?!? I think Nolan and I may have developed a little crush on one another... nothing cuter then a 6 year old in a tux.
