Heather + Mark ::Wedding::

She has this sweet, gentle spirit. He is a deep thinker with a romantic heart. Their wedding was simple, elegant, and tender. I loved the sense that they hadn't lost sight of each other in the midst of all the wedding plans and details; they were calm and present and so obviously in love. The day unfolded like a good story - nothing contrived or forced, just a lovely symbol of their love and commitment shared with family and friends.

Their wedding was also a good creative challenge for me as a photographer. With a gray, windy, sub-zero winter outside and a large church built more for practical use than for exquisite beauty, I wondered if I could do justice to this lovely couple. Without being able to rely on stunning backgrounds and soft natural lighting, I got a chance to work on the true grit of being a creative photographer - working with what you have to capture the beauty of the relationship before you.

Heather and Mark, I loved working with you and am so grateful to continually be challenged to expand the limits of my skills and creativity. Here is a little taste of your day...can't wait to share the rest of them with you! Many blessings on you as you embark and the next chapter of your story together!

I just love the tenderness between them

They both have such stunning eyes

We found a random turquoise wall and had some fun...

What a lovely bride


Check out the cake that Heather created herself! Incredible!
