With all this cold weather lately, I’ve really been feeling the fall vibes, so I thought I’d finally add Kallie & Joey’s family photography session to the blog because it has ALLLLL the fall feels. This family is so photogenic it isn’t even fair and I absolutely love it when I get the chance to capture them.

You can’t tell by the photos, but this particular day was a little wild. It rained allll afternoon. Kallie and I had been messaging back and forth to decide if we could go ahead. As you know, peak foliage season only lasts for about a week in the northern parts of the state, so rescheduling photos in fall leaves can be a challenge. The Bards braved it out and decided that a little rain wouldn’t be a problem anyway. Pulling into the location for this session, a rainbow unfolded over the lake and we took it as a sign: it was go time. Stepping out of our vehicles we were hit by huge gusts of wind and bitterly cold temps, but this little fam stuck it out and—I mean, I might be biased, but WOW—it was worth it.

Huge energy and big smiles made this session an absolute joy and I hope this sunny day brings you a little cheer while you’re locked at home.


















Fall Foliage Family Session

The words I hear whenever I see these images are the final sigh Mitch gave Steph as he completed his vows to her. Between shaky breaths he said, “Oh Stephie, I love you more than words can say.” And sometimes it’s as simple as that.

This wedding venue offered a blank slate–white walls, simple chandeliers, large windows, and tall ceilings meant that Diana could design anything in that space. Keeping in line with L&J’s desire for simple, natural elements, they opted for white roses and peonies nestled into an abundance of greenery. For the ceremony, they chose simple cross-back chairs to mimic the wooden ladders of the apple orchard they faced and keep the entire affair organic and true to the location.

Autumn weddings are incredible on their own, but add a healthy dose of fall foliage and my al fresco dreams came true at this blush-inspired wedding day.
