When we talked about their wedding plans, Janelle and John said that they wanted their day to be a sweeping love story. They were inspired by the movie Braveheart and incorporated the official flower of Scotland and festive plaids into their details. Their day was full of many happy tears and lots of laughter, and I was honored to be there to tell their wonderful story. Here are some highlights from their special day.

I am not a morning person at all but getting up in time for this gorgeous sunrise light was well worth it. Lovely Michelle is expecting her first child this year and I’m thrilled that we got to take these pictures together to capture this special time. She is wearing an Elouise gown in Ocean.

Makeup: Michele with Lasting Luxe

(ps, thank you to amazing Michele for coming to do makeup before the sun was up!)

I first met John in entrepreneurship class in college. It’s fun to get to work together now that I actually am an entrepreneur! His fiance Janelle is a perfect match for him in every way. They are an adventurous fun couple and I had so much fun exploring fort de soto with them and capturing a little glimpse of their love. Here are a few of my favorites!
