MSU Chapel of Memories + The Hewlett Stables Wedding | Starkville, MS | Savannah + Marq

Mississippi

Dear Savannah + Marq,

I think I will be hard pressed to find a couple who is as quick to laugh and have a good time as you two are.  All day the two of you were bubbling over with delight. When you finally joined hands at the alter, the joy was palpable. I hope your wedding day was everything you dreamed it would be, and that your long awaited honeymoon was the trip of a lifetime.

Cheers to you both,

Glacier National Park Wedding | Kalispell, Montana | Julie + Danny

Northwest

Dear Julie + Danny,

There were about a hundred things that made your wedding so wonderful: multiple gorgeous locations, a fun loving bridal party, and wonderful couple. But for me what made it so special was how your wedding was pulled together by your closet family and friends. From all over the world, your loved ones rallied together to build a dance floor, craft homemade pasta, and run the dozens of little errands that are a part of every wedding. It was truly an honor to photograph such a heartfelt celebration, and I hope your first few weeks of married life have been a dream.

Much love to you both,

Nikki

Mississippi

Dear Taylor + Adam,

Working with the two of you was such a delight. Taylor, you could not have been more easy going. Even though the it poured the morning of your wedding, and the weeks leading up to it had been absolutely insane, you remained calm, cool, and collected throughout the whole day. And Adam, your whole face lit up once you saw Taylor for the first time. Your day was truly beautiful, and I am honored to have been able to document such a momentous occasion.  I hope your first few weeks as husband and wife have been absolutely beautiful.

Jiggetts Home Wedding | Canton, Mississippi | Grace + Thomas

Dear Grace + Thomas,

I feel rather at a loss for words when I think of what to say about your wedding. To say it was familial does not describe the tenderness. To say it was simple does not explain the thoughtfulness. What set the tone for your day was love, love for God, love for each other, love for one another. And that made it all the sweeter to be a part of. I hope you have enjoyed every minute as husband and wife, and I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a part of your joyous union.

Cheers to you both,

Nikki

Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it. I hope your first month as husband and wife have been everything you dreamed they would be.

Cheers to you,

Top 15 Travel

Alabama

I was recently asked if I could have an unlimited budget for one area of my life, what would it be. Without a second thought, I said travel.  And, seeing that I’m in the Northwest this week, I figured it would be a good time to recap my favorite travels from the last year. There was a quick trip to the beach, and multiple trips to see family.  One of the greatest blessings of working from home is that I can literary work anywhere (provided there is wifi), and scheduling a week out of town isn’t a big deal.

Top 10 Getting Ready

Alabama

For the groom, the time they spend getting ready is brief.  The actual process of getting ready is not long: pants and shirts, perhaps a vest, a tie, shoes, and then the jacket. The most challenging part is without question the boutonniere. He is with his friends there are jokes, affirms slaps on the back and shakes of the hand, a few nervous laughs, and a shrug of the shoulders to shake off the nerves.

For the bride, it is entirely different. There is a quite, nervous energy. No mirror is needed to get ready; she knows how everything is going to sit, how it will feel, how it will look. When she does turn to see herself, it’s not out of criticism, but out of reflection. All the planning is about to pay off, and moments she has to see herself is a time to pause before the festivities begin.

Mississippi Museum of Art Wedding | Taylor + Josh

Mississippi

Taylor + Josh,

There was something so incredibly sweet about getting to be your wedding photographer. I regularly have the privilege of being able to photograph couples who are in love, but photographing you two was so much more than that. The way the two of you anticipate the actions of one another was such a delight to witness.

I hope your first few weeks of husband and wife have been nothing short of splendid.

Cheers to you both,

Mandi + Drew | Tupelo, MS Outdoor Wedding | The Antler

Mississippi

Dear Mandi + Drew,

It was so sweet to watch the two of you on your wedding day. The nerves that fluttered around in the morning as you two prepared to see each other melted away once you saw one another. The smiles on your faces became more relaxed, the light in your eyes even more prevalent, and the stress dissolved as your embraced one another. Getting to witness that, to document the connection that pulls you two together was such a privilege. So, thank you. I so appreciate you trusting me to photograph your wedding, and capture your first day as husband and wife.

Cheers to you both!
