Thomas and Karys – Meridian country wedding

He came back from his last tour in Afghanistan hopeful and ready.  Ready to take the next step in his life and looking for someone to share it with him.  Someone who wore boots and had country roots.  Preferably.  She was wondering what was on the horizon of her own life, and although she didn’t really expect it to happen so soon, welcomed love with open arms.  Thomas and Karys, thanks so much for talking me into documenting your wedding.  It was such an honor to be part of your special day.  I loved all the little details that kept it country and represented you both perfectly.  You are truly blessed to begin your life together surrounded by such wonderful family and friends.  Your future looks incredibly bright!

Good times with the W family – Meridian family photographer

Oh, yes, summer is officially here and I’m as giddy as I was in college.  No homework for 3 months!  Too bad that didn’t include no housework for 3 months.  But anyway, summertime is my favorite.  I actually like it hot.  I don’t even mind it REALLY hot.  The evenings have been just perfect for photos sessions, and I met up with an old friend to get some fresh family pictures of her and her crew.  Katie, you have an awesome family!  You know those 3 boys are going to be serious heartbreakers in another few years.   They did SO good for me and had fun just doing what boys do.  Of course. . . that had to include some fart noises along the way.  I’m growing to love fart noises myself, as they always make for some pretty big grins!  Thanks again and enjoy your pictures!
