As a photographer, the photos that I take at weddings are just as much of a reminder to me of what I witnessed at each wedding as they are for the couples for whom I shoot. While I was working through these photos it struck me just how many photos I took where Brittney & Dalton had the biggest smiles on their faces. Even with the chance of rain threatening to put a damper on their plans to have their outdoor ceremony (which they did have, with just a few sprinkles here and there), they just kept smiling through all of it. And that’s really the secret, right? Weddings rarely go 100% as planned, but at the end of the day it’s the memories you’ve made with all of the amazing people you’ve chosen to surround yourself with that will last. So here are a few photos that hopefully cause all of those memories to flood back into the hearts of Brittney, Dalton, and all of their family and friends.

Brittney & Dalton, I hope you love these photos as much as I loved taking them!

What you’re going to see in this blog post is this: a couple who belongs to the two most accepting, inviting, entertaining families you’ve ever encountered, and people who just seem to have their priorities in perfect order. Jillian planned what would have been a beautiful outdoor reception on a wonderful piece of lakefront property in Rankin County. The weather, however, threatened a total rain-out and things were moved at the last minute to a school gymnasium near Pinelake Church where they were wed.

Nothing, however–including the threat of a rained out wedding reception and the stress of relocating everything you’d spent a long time planning–would stand in the way of this couple finding the joy and beauty all around them on the day they became man and wife. And you’ll see it. All over these photos–sweet moments with family, abounding joy, and a sense that everything was just the way it needed to be.

I said yesterday on our Instagram post that Morgan & Josh are unfairly beautiful – don’t you agree? My time spent with this beauty queen and future doctor couldn’t have gone better, and their elegance still strikes me when I view these photos from their engagement session. Hope you enjoy this little sampling of our time spent roaming around their Belhaven stomping grounds in Jackson, MS.

When Rachael and I first sat together in my studio for her initial consultation she said something like, “Basically, I’m calling our big day a wedding weekend extravaganza.”

And that’s exactly what she and Cody had. I’ve decided Rachael and Cody are basically live sitcom. They’re comedic timing with one another is flawless, they’re effortlessly quotable, and the people they surround themselves with compliment them in them most perfect way. All in all, the weekend was–indeed–an extravaganza which I hope you’ll find perfectly portrayed by the following images.
