Jana & Steve – Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

Oct 15, 2013

I wasn’t going to blog these today but I just love them so much (and am slightly behind on wedding posts). I meant to sit down tonight after the shoot and only edit a few and before you know it, I was nearly finished and had more than enough for a blog post. Jana & Steve are getting married at Meadowlark in January of 2015 so we were fortunate enough today to walk around and get some amazing shots when there was still some leaves on the trees and pretty plants in bloom. It was a really beautiful place, I am beyond excited to shoot their wedding there in 2015. I can only imagine what it would look like with a light dusting of snow on the ground and thousands of twinkly lights in the trees. Can you tell I am ready for the fall and holidays? Bring it on!! Anyway – onto the photos!!

So when these are the first few frames you take – you know it is going to be a good session.

Love this one.

I was crazy excited for them to throw leaves. So was Steve!

Jana is absolutely stunning!!

Come on January 2015!!

    Her ring is a stunner! I did a double take on that last shot. You rocked the posing on this one so hard! I am sad we won’t see more of them until 2015!

    Oh! Emm! Gee! No real words–just smiles 🙂

    If these are just a sample of all of the pictures, I can’t even begin to comprehend how stellar the rest of the photos are.

    You are a natural at your profession and nothing less than a joy to work with, don’t ever doubt it!

    Love these! I feel like this is a day in the life of this couple and you really get to know their personalities. The blanket ones are some of my favorites but I like them all.
