A Woodland Wedding | Richard + Deanna

I have had the opportunity and privilege to capture many beautiful weddings in my career- I have truly enjoyed each and every one of them for their own special reasons. But this wedding in particular just plucked at all my heart strings.


A larger wedding was in the works, but that wouldn't happen due to the unprecedented year we have all experienced. The couple chose to focus on the silver lining- they chose to bring the number down to about 15 guests, and focused on the details of the day.


Witnessing the joy and love this family shared with one another truly made my day with them all the more special. And I am so thankful for the passion for photography, God has placed in my heart. Helping couples and families relive a special day in their life via portraits is a gift for them and myself.


Much love and blessings for your new chapter in life, Richard and Deanna.
