Bobby & Audris had one of my all time favorite weddings. I know that’s a big statement. & I don’t mean to say that I don’t absolutely love all my other weddings, theirs was just slow & sweet & emotional. Everything I love & value. I admire how special their love is & how intentional they were to soak up every little moment with each other. Right before we went out for the first-look, I asked Audris if she was ready to go see her almost-husband & she just looked at me & asked for a hug. Those moments. They are what make this big eventful wedding day special. Beyond that, their portraits are fun, relaxed & all taken while we walked around the Crossroads. We had lots of time & it shows. We got to enjoy every minute, not rush through it.

At the end of the day, my favorite moment was right after their ceremony, just the two of them together in the back hallway. I wanted to bottle that memory up forever. Its the feeling that I hope ALL couples get to feel after they’ve just committed their lives to each other!
Ok that’s all I’ll ramble about. Here are the vendors & of course - the photos.

MADI apparel | Blush Spring/Summer Collection

I had the best time shooting with MADI Apparel early this year, for their Spring/Summer Collection! MADI stands for ‘Make A Difference Intimates’ & is a company that makes intimates with a buy-one-give-one model. For every pair purchased, a pair is given to a local woman who is an abuse survivor, in a shelter or victim of rape. Beyond that, MADI has a non-profit side, created to train & employ those survivors to then sew the garments themselves. It’s such an amazing company & I love getting to be a part of their story!
SO! This collection is extra special, the items are hand dyed using avocados! Alyx is a local designer who dyed all the fabric for the garments [read her journey with the dye here!] & they are such a beautiful shade of blush. I’ll let you see the items for yourself!
ps. they have other color options & some are pictured here!
