Megan and Elgin

This Wildflower Barn Wedding was a blast!

I found myself in a funny position of shooting at The Wildflower Barn within the same year, but almost exactly a year apart. *IT WAS SO FUN!* I had never worked with a horse carriage before, so this was a fantastic experience, resulting in some really delightful photos!

One of my favorite stories of the day is when Megan surprised Elgin with a totem carved in the symbols of his fraternity. They had originally found it at a vintage shop, but the price tag had shocked them. So they left it at the store. Elgin thought about it and asked to go back a couple of days later, but it was gone!! Little did Elgin know, Megan had snuck back to the store, bought the totem, and totally intended to keep it until their wedding day as a gift. A couple of years later, I had the honor of helping her organize her moment of presentation. He squealed and jumped backward, laughing hysterically with joy when he realized what she had done, all of that planning and secrecy. People yelled across the yard that they had been in on it too, making him laugh even harder. It was a wonderful moment, one of many on this super special day!

If you notice that I don’t mention the food here…that’s because out of the two caterers that were hired, one didn’t even SHOW. The other was over two hours late. I do not give credit to vendors that suck at their job.

We also did a super fun sparkler exit, which I don’t really do anymore. I charge for them, to cover possible physical damage caused by them. “Walking backward into the drunk fire,” as I call it. Sparklers burn at 1500 degrees and a lot of photographers and planners have scars from them. So naturally, I got an epic shot, by shoving my $3k camera into the fire. LMAO you know me, never half-assed.

I also loved the small unique touches, like her handmade brooch bouquet! It’s stunning!!!

Hope your holiday season is going smoothly. Looking forward to sharing my next client! Have a good one!
