It would be a major understatement to say that this couple is beautiful, inside and out.

We love John & Jennifer so much. We had so much fun with them on their shoot

and can’t wait to photograph their beauty on their wedding day!

To witness such amazing love is so inspiring.

Let me preface this post by saying that I am well aware that we are fully two months past St. Patricks Day.  But some memories are too sweet, and you want to write them down and share them with your friends. So that is why I did this post anyway icon smile Feeling so lucky.

We had such a lovely Saturday. It was beautiful out, and I had a photo shoot in the morning, but I snuck out to the kitchen and surprised the kids with a Lucky Breakfast before I had to leave. We had Lucky Charms and green milk and gold under the”rainbow”.

We had an amazing time. And I was all prepared to photograph our dinner as well, but frankly, green mashed potatoes look disgusting.

xoxo,

molly.

Ps. Almost all of my ideas came from my pinterest board, which you can find here .

 

You are about to witness the happiest day (so far) of my life in photo form.

I must start by saying I hate being photographed, let alone publishing a zillion of my faces on our blog for the world to see.

Thank God for Molly and her mad skills at making me look half way decent. Literally, thank you, Lord.

But before you browse, I have to tell you a little about our story. : )

 (if you don’t already know, considering half the world knew before I did!)

My lovely Lance & I have been dating for about 5 1/2 years, and not once has he ever been able to keep a secret from me.

I always knew what he was getting me for my birthday and Christmas or where he was taking me out to dinner. He is so predictable.

But he/they tricked me this time! I had asked Miss Molly if she would do a small styled fair themed session of Lance and me last fall for

our 5 year anniversary since we met as the Darke County fair. Adorable, right? Well we didn’t make it happen, so when Molly decided to

finally start planning our carnival shoot in February,

I didn’t really read into it. When I started to get suspicious, they (the secret design team) would smooth it over with ease.

Lance acted totally not interested.

Much, much, much to my surprise, the shoot was Lance’s idea to cover up his proposal at the fairgrounds. You sneaky Lance.

Of course Molly went above and beyond and, with the help of some lovely people, pulled off this amazing shoot.

So as you peek, keep in mind I had no idea what was really happening until halfway through the shoot.

I hope you love it as much as I love him.

(that is.. well.. impossible.)

I can not even begin to tell you how much I ADORE this couple.

Jamie & Cynthia own an airplane charter company, and they are so amazing at what they do.

You can easily see the passion that they have for their jobs, but more so the passion that they have for each other.

Cynthia is everything beautiful and sweet. Jamie is guaranteed to make you laugh with his wit and charm.

But more than anything, they are perfect for each other.

This is a shoot that Rachel did in the studio last week. Vivian is so sweet, and her family absolutely adores her! I was working in the office, and I could just hear the love in their voicesas they played with her, cuddled her, and even as she drifted to sleep in their arms…. Seeing her Daddy and PaPa so gentle, her Nana and Mama so wonderful, just brought tears to my eyes. And the love she receives, always, is apparent in how content she is.

in june of this year, i had the most fortunate opportunity to go be part of something amazing: a workshop led by none other than Joy Prouty of Wildflowers Photography. if you have never had the pleasure of viewing her work, do yourself a favor and take a look (after you are finished reading this post of course! ) Joy is an amazing individual~ beautiful, unbelievably talented, and down to earth through it all. i, along with 22 other amazing women, went on this journey together into the aspects of our business, our hearts, and our lives to help each other come out the other side stronger, better, more able to capture each of you in a more emotional and meaningful way. we laughed ~ alot, and cried~ also a lot, but it was by far the best decision i have made for my business. stepping back away from everything, priorities, decisions and choices became more clear.

not to mention we were in the little town of Julian, California~ which is an amazing inspiration all in itself.

the first shoot that Joy set up for us were 2 precious little girls in what was supposed to be the gorgeous CA morning sunshine. But God knew better, and instead sent this graceful fog that curled around and provided the most gorgeous and unique lighting. i loved it~ in fact, i cannot wait to shoot in the fog again…

ok, i will quit rambling for now, and let you look…. enjoy.

xoxo.

my husband, brett has always wanted to jump out of an airplane. i think he is a little crazy for that, but what do i know? i am NOT an adrenaline junkie. and my dear friend chelsea has always wanted to do the same thing. we talked about getting her and brett together to do it quite a while ago, and on May 22nd, they made it a reality. a few more people came too, and so in all, there were 6 skydivers. we went to Hook Field in Middletown, and after waiting what seemed like an eternity, ( it was in fact 6.5 hours) it was time. i have to say, i was very excited to capture it from the ground. i have no desire to do it myself, but it was amazing to see the plane climb in the sky and then suddenly the sky is littered with these little spots of color as they all came gently floating down. i loved how they looked like those tiny parachute men that we used to throw out the window when i was a kid, and watch them waft to the ground. there were some weather holds and a couple big thunderstorms blew in, so the sky was dramatic and beautiful when it was brett’s turn. when he got to the ground, he was so elated. i am thrilled he got to fulfill a dream.

if you have ever had a dream to go skydiving, you should make it a priority to go this year. it was amazing, and lifechanging for my loved ones. and it’s gotta give you courage…. after all, what could scare you after you’ve jumped out of an airplane?
