I don’t do bridal sessions very often, so when Karye suggested she would like to do one before her wedding day, I was super pumped about it! I still can’t over how beautiful Karye is, and she is such a sweet, kind person, so she is beautiful inside and out! :)
Brytni and Dax got to start off their new year as husband and wife! One great perk of being a photographer in Mississippi is that you can have good weather pretty much all year. And their wedding day happened to be a beautiful January day! The wedding party got ready at Lawndale Presbyterian Church, where Dax’s family are members. (I actually used to work with his sister Maggie at the Journal!) Their first look took place where they love to take walks at a spot along the Natchez Trace, and was actually the spot where Dax proposed to Brytni! It was so special that we were able to do their first photos of the day there. After, we headed back for more photos at the church. The ceremony was beautiful and had unique personal touches, like the processional song was the instrumental version of “You’ll Be In My Heart,” Brytni’s favorite Disney song, and Dax’s father and Brytni’s grandfather read from the Bible in English and Spanish. After Dax and Brytni became husband and wife, they celebrated at their reception! Dax’s sister Annakathryn baked the beautiful cake (his other sister Zoey has an eye for photography- a very talented family!) and they played the hilarious Newlywed shoe game. They danced and Brytni got to reunite with her BlackList sisters from MUW. The happy couple exited to their family and friends throwing bird seed as the two got in their getaway car to head off to Hawaii! Dax and Brytni are the sweetest, and I am so happy I got to kick off 2018 with them!

Fall is a pretty perfect time to have a wedding in Mississippi. The weather isn’t too crazy and it’s cooled off just enough. Emilee and Ben had a beautiful fall September wedding! The day was filled with Nerf gun fights, giggly flower girls, around the corner hand holding, a Nintendo groom’s cake, and so much love! Seriously. You should’ve seen Ben’s face light up when he saw Emilee! The ceremony and reception took place at Auburn Baptist Church, where is where both Emilee and Ben’s parents were married! Emilee’s grandparents were also married there, so it is so special they were able to carry on that tradition! After Emilee and Ben exchanged vows and rings and said “I do,” they mingled with family and friends in the fellowship hall. They cut their cakes, sipped on Jones soda and filled up at the candy bar. At the end of the day, the two exited to their getaway car with bubbles, it was so lovely! I wish you all the happiness in your marriage, Ben and Emilee!
