I love all of the weddings I photograph and am always excited to witness the promises a bride and groom make to each other.  But I was literally looking forward to this wedding for more than a year!  Last summer I got to spend some time with Leah and Zach in Mexico at Zach’s sister Maggie’s wedding.  I already knew Leah because I took her senior photos years earlier (and her sister’s too!!!), but you get to know people even better when you are at a resort with them for a week :).  And I just love all of their family and am soooooo happy for them!  Seriously, I think I cried more than once this day :)

I want to give a big thanks to Leigh Miller for shooting this wedding with me as well as my intern Paige for all their help :)  But mostly super big thanks to Zach and Leah for trusting me and being super awesome!  Hugs & Smooches!!!!!

I will start with some of the detail shots taken in Leah’s parents home.  I do love the personalness (is that a word?) of getting ready for your wedding day in your own home or family home :)  Gorgeous dress!!!

ballou-25 I also have photographed SIX of Leah’s bridesmaids and attendants before!!!!!!  It is really awesome watching these young ladies become lovely young women :)ballou-30This moment really shows the importance of having a wedding album, even if you are making it on your own.  On Leah’s wedding day they were reminiscing looking at her parents album.

I love how fun and retro, yet sleek and modern this look is. A very unique colour palette, indeed. (07/14/16, 4:39 am)

As I was getting ready, I was also keeping an eye on her watching to see how she interacted with Earl, my cat. When I felt comfortable, I left. Earl really likes her. (07/08/16, 9:09 am)

You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you aren't more popular because you certainly possess the gift. (07/27/15, 3:16 pm)
