A Boho Barn Wedding | Ainsley + Michael

“Love each other like your life depends on it, because it does.” Leah’s stepdad offered this advice in his speech before dinner, saying it as a sort of benediction over the room full of family and closest friends. The flickering candlelight mimicked the twinkle in everyone’s eyes as he closed by recounting the line of […]

Historic Pritzlaff Wedding | Leah + Mason

Every time I shoot a wedding and start to go through my images for the blog post, stories and speeches start coming to mind from that day. It’s these tidbits that I love to share in the blog post because they round out the whole picture of the day. Obviously the pictures are a big […]
