Yay!!!!  Lauren & Kenny were married in beautiful Parkville where they met at Park College!  The Graham Tyler Memorial Chapel is the beautiful little church on the campus of Park College, so what a perfect place for their ceremony!!!!  It was such an exciting day with Lauren and her girls all smiley and bubbly!  I had the great opportunity to photograph Lauren & Kenny’s engagement session in Fort Worth where they live and had such a fun time getting to know them, I was super excited to photograph their wedding!  And it was just as great as I thought it would be!  Let me tell the story with the photos!!!!

I want to start with a few shots from the engagement session because it was just soooooo awesome and I haven’t had enough time to blog very many engagement sessions :)  We shot a lot in the Fort Worth Stockyards which was really really cool :)

What a wonderful way to celebrate two people joining their lives and families together by spending the week in the Riviera Maya, Mexico at the Marina El Cid!  This blog post will be like 3 posts in one!  Not only will this be a wedding day post but a fun morning session with Maggie and Brad on the beach after the wedding and a few fun photos I took while there for the week with my family :)

While I have had the great opportunity to photograph some amazing weddings around the country, this was my first out of county wedding!!!!  And it was SOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!  Maggie & Brad and their family and friends were also so welcoming to my family that it made it even more wonderful :)   Of course if you have ever met my daughter you might know that she is a bit ornery and loves to photo bomb :)

I will start with a few photos that I took while on a little exploring trip around the resort with my daughter!  We love to go exploring :)braggie-2

Just about everyday we looked for the El Cid crocodile and iguanas!braggie-50 braggie-10




I had my camera poolside the first day we were there and my daughter introduced herself via photo bombing :) Cutest photo bomber ever :)


On the friday before the wedding, Maggie & Brad invited all of their guests out for a catamaran/snorkeling cruise and were so nice to invite my family as well :)  It was super fun (minus me getting sea sick, ha!).  But I swam right next to a big sea turtle which makes the throwing up worth it 😉  I was able to take a few photos for fun before that though :)  Cutie sister shot below!braggie-67

See, it was bumpy :)braggie-77

Another super fun thing about this wedding party was that one of my former bride and groom, Heather & Bo were there and one of my former seniors!!!!  Heather and Stephanie were  bridesmaids :)  I also included a photo of the super cute german boy who was crewing the boat and the super cute dude cuddling my little girl, my son :)


Then on to the spa the next morning to start off the wedding day!!!!!braggie-120


There was so much love, happiness and emotion throughout the day!

Yay for mimosas!  Well…oj for the little ladies :)braggie-159
