Nathan had a plan. McKenzie’s parents had gotten engaged while on a hike, so when he started forming his vision for how he would propose to McKenzie he knew that he wanted to do something similar and sentimental. So he planned a hike through the Smoky Mountains with some of their best friends, and everyone was in on it – except for McKenzie.
Last fall I spent some time in Indianapolis with Breana and Blake as we took their engagement photos along the canal. Back then I wasn’t blogging like I am now, so I figured it would be fun to highlight these two as their wedding is this Saturday! Just typing that seems crazy as I feel like just yesterday I was sitting down with them for our first meeting. But here we are!
A few months ago, my husband, Zach, and I traveled to Las Vegas for a wedding. While most of our trip was spent with the bride and groom, we did manage to sneak away for one day to explore the Las Vegas Strip. My photo gear is pretty heavy, so I decided to leave it in the safe in our room for the day while we hit the town. That meant that my only tool for photographing our day’s adventure was my iPhone 7 Plus. I was asked to share some tricks that I used to capture all of the awesome sights in Vegas using only my smartphone!
As a child one of my favorite places on earth was the library. As soon as I was able to read I found a love for the classics and that included Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. I loved reading about the quirky characters and the adventures of the ever curious Alice. So when I found out the Anderson’s Mainstage theatre would be putting on a production of Alice in Wonderland in September, I marked my calendar right away!
After the wedding was over and we finished a final Vegas buffet (a breakfast buffet with Kyle and Jen, the bride and groom – yum!) Zach and I packed up our rental car and headed out into the desert.
The first time I spoke to Wendy over Facetime (she was living in D.C. at the time) – she started telling me about her and Eli’s wedding. The ceremony would be held at Eli’s family church, and the reception would be at her childhood church. Right away I fell in love with the fact that they were selecting such meaningful locations, how special is that? But then Wendy paused. “Have you ever watched Parks and Rec?” she asked. A grin formed on my face. “Of course!” I nearly shouted into the screen, trying to not totally nerd out about one of my favorite shows. Wendy went on to explain that their reception was going to have nods to Parks and Rec, a show that both her and Eli love. I was SO in.
