Nia and Kenan!

"I fell in love, in love,
With you suddenly.
Now there's no place else,
I could be, but,
Here in your arms "

Yesterday was just a beautiful, beautiful day. I had the absolute, complete pleasure of working with Samara of By Design Events. She blew me away once again! Seriously, brides, hire her!

Ok, Nia and Kenan! I arrived at the hotel where Nia was getting ready, and I knew that the day was going be fabulous. She was more than glowing. I think I new word needs to be invented to describe "that" look a bride has. It seriously hard to stop looking at her! (This shot is the famous David Jay shot - I finally got one I liked! haha)

I had to post this again :D

Her dress.was.gorgeous. And it was made by my favorite designer Justin Alexander!

A happy, casual portrait :D

Looooove this one! It's about the real moments, ladies and gentlemen :D Sometimes you do what you gotta do haha

They had a wonderful little group playing the music. It was stunning!

She was telling us that she was just "a very little bit nervous" :D aaaw!

Oh hello happiness!

This is a sweet moment from the ceremony. It was like no one else even existed at that second.

Congratulations you two! Thank you for having me on your big day! Enjoy the show :D

ps: oh! I like this one too :D It's fun when the guests are "snap-happy" hahah

  4. Dear Kristen,

    They asked me over and over again would I cry at the wedding, and I kept saying how it was a joyful event. No, I didn't cry at the wedding though I did get emotional seeing my only daughter walk down the isle. However, TODAY, looking at your awesome photos, I did shed a tear, and I was filled with emotion at the beauty of my daughter and her new husband and this wonderful gift from God that you possess!

    Thank you so very much for being a part of Nia's and Kenan's wedding day. Your gift is none other than stunning!!!!!!!!

    Warmest regards,

    Therese Taylor-Stinson
    (Mother of the Bride)

  5. kristen, i love the new look of your blog!!! that picture of the bride in the circle mirror is STUNNING. wow.

  6. love the photo of her eyelashes! it's so serene and has a great mood to it!

  7. You've got great stuff - I checked out the site from Josh Harris' website. I go to a sovereign grace church, but I caught the name you mentioned in this post - david jay - do you know him?! My best friend is a photographer and was apprenticed by him - they are good friends. Check out her site - She's a legend in her own right out west, and thought you'd like her stuff too. Enjoy! :)

  8. Hi Kristen,
    We just got back from the honeynoon, and I could not wait to see what you posted. THANK YOU SO MUCH for capturing the day so beautifully! You are truly an amazing photographer. I could not have asked for more.
