I met Heather and Phil a few years ago for their family session. Heather made sure to emphasize how much she HATED having photos done. During the session I could tell she was pretty nervous and self conscious… about what???? She’s absolutely stunning! BUT, I take what I do seriously and reassured her that I wouldn’t make her look “fat” or “add chins”… because I shoot to flatter and boost your self-esteem. I photograph the REAL you with almost zero photoshop aside from color and getting that weird creeper out of the background of your images. I get it, though. We’re trained from birth that we are supposed to look a certain way. It’s total crap, but the brainwashing is intense. When I delivered Heather’s photos she was ECSTATIC and assured me she would be booking me for her wedding. I was over the moon that she was happy with herself and saw her how I see her. Heather, you are hands down one of THE most beautiful women I know!
AS SOON AS SHE GOT ENGAGED, she emailed me and basically told me to pick the date. I have been SO PUMPED to share this wedding and all the gorgeousness that was Heather and Phil’s Woodlawn Manor Wedding! Starting with the perfect travel-themed details!!!
I have serious mom goals after witnessing Heather and her daughter’s relationship for YEARS. I cried when Ry gave her speech to her mother and new step-dad at the reception. Serious crocodile tears for how much love these two have for one another and for life. You two give me all the feels!
Dad/son time! Synchronous buttoning!
I’m excited for our next photography adventure together! I adore you, Heather!
Shout out to Erin for second shooting this weeding with me! <3
