Bride & groom laughing as they walk back down the aisle
I first met Lindsay eight years ago, when I photographed her sister Brittany’s wedding. So it’s difficult to overstate how excited I was when Lindsay contacted me about shooting her own wedding to Trevor. There is something so special and meaningful about reconnecting with a family I already love, and getting to be part of another priceless day in their history! I was over the moon!

And then when I got to see Lindsay & Trevor together, I was even more thrilled to shoot their wedding. I can give you an easy, one word description for their relationship: JOY. In my many years of shooting weddings, I have rarely seen a couple so clearly ECSTATIC to be getting married! Trevor & Lindsay smiled and laughed through their entire wedding day. Not even clouds, crazy wind, and a little rain could dim their beaming smiles!

I feel so honored to have had the chance to capture Lindsay & Trevor’s happiness on film, so they can look back and remember how they felt on this day for the rest of their lives!
