I’m so thrilled to be blogging this wedding. I’ve been looking forward to photographing these two since they emailed me. I knew Doug in college, and when I met Katie, I was all… we HAVE to be friends. I’ve never met two more steady and trusting people. We all know wedding days always have something unexpected, and last Saturday had three severe thunderstorms roll through RIGHT at pivotal moments. The first look, bridal party portraits, and the ceremony were all adjusted, but Katie and Doug took it in stride. No tears, no visible stress – just joy. Joy because no matter what the sky did, the heavens were celebrating their union. Can I get an amen?

I said, “Ok, let’s move out of the field.” But Doug and Katie decided to share mid-portrait prayer. I love how grounded and sweet these two are!
Thankfully Katie and Doug made it to shelter before the storm, but the rest of us were NOT so lucky. I had to put this photo in – too bad it doesn’t highlight the sideways rain and lightning!!!
