Megan & Jacob

The moment I first met Megan and Jacob I fell in love with them right away!! We sat and talked at their consultation for quite awhile…not only about their upcoming wedding, but our lives too. I felt like we really got to know one another well. Okay, Jacob could have been getting a little hungry during this meeting (we should have scheduled it at a local restaurant!), but regardless, we hit it off right from the start and I knew they would be the perfect couple to work with!

 It was so wonderful to reunite with Megan and Jacob on their beautiful wedding day. It was nothing short of perfect!

These two have waited so long for their big day and it was finally here! Their champagne and pastel color tones made the entire day so romantic. It is such an honor to be the ones who captured one of the most special days of their life! What a gift!!! I love my job and I love this sweet couple! Congratulations to the newlyweds! We are so excited for you!! I hope you’re loving life as newlyweds and relaxing in Mexico was just as wonderful as you could have ever hoped it would be!!

Having a special woman to help you get into your wedding gown, makes the day even more wonderful! Megan’s mom was the perfect person to do just that!!

Father/Daughter first looks are always so sweet! Even when unplanned, as was Megan and her father’s. Glad we were there to get some photos of this precious time between these two!


Finally the time came for Megan and Jacob to see each other for the first time! First looks are one of my favorite moments of the day.

They’re married!!!

The reception took place at the same venue as the ceremony, La Vida Loca Winery. Every last detail was put together to make for a fun night celebrating Megan and Jacob!! My favorite centerpiece was the picture frames on the tree stumps. They used a variety of engagement portraits as well as favorite photos taken through the years.
