Nothwest Arkansas Photographer. Wedding Photography. Jenny+Brenton

This last weekend I had the privilege of second shooting (for the first time) a wedding with Rachel Blackwell..... an amazing wedding photographer here in Springdale, Arkansas! Rachel is a super talented photographer and I learned soooo much from the experience!! Rachel was so much fun to work with and made all the wedding picture taking easy and fun for everyone...... the bride even told Rachel thanks at the end of the day for making it so fun! Check out all of Rachel's amazing work and pics from the wedding here.
Jenny and Brenton were the sweetest couple, and so in love. Jenny and Brenton got ready and had their reception at the beautiful Pratt Place Inn. I hadn't met the bride and groom prior to the wedding day, and it was so special to be a part of some of the most special and intimate moments of their wedding day.

Jenny's dress was absolutely beautiful!


Here she is getting ready with her Mom...... such a happy, beautiful bride.



A couple pictures with the girls..... the picture below on the right is Jenny with her sister..... such a sweet look between the two.


Smiles and laughter.....

On the left, Jenny waiting to see her groom for the first time...... on the right is their first sight!

A little celebrating!!


I thought this was so cute...... just happened to catch this little man looking up at Jenny while everyone else is looking somewhere else!

Nothwest Arkansas Photographer. Just Because: Brittney+Sarah

Meet Brittney and Sarah! Sarah is dating one of my husbands closest friends and Brittney is her best friend. They both live in Texas but came to visit last week and we all had a blast hanging out! We had originally planned on just doing a couples session with Cordy and Sarah..... but as soon as I saw how gorgeous Brittney was I dragged her into the session too! Brittney and Sarah are both super sweet, genuine people who are as pretty inside as they are out. They met playing volleyball at SHU and are very athletic (they ran like 6 miles a couple mornings while they were here..... made me feel like a total wimp.... I can barely run a mile!) Brittney is also an AWESOME cook..... she cooked for us all week long...yumm (haha..... I know.... what kind of hostess am I letting my guests cook for me?!?) Anyways.... I took some shots of Brittney in front of this sweet orange wall..... and then a couple of the two together! Sarah and Cordy's couple session coming soon!!



I think this one on the right is my fav..... hello..... her green eyes are soooo amazing!





This is my fav of the two together..... once again.... they are just so darn pretty!!

Nothwest Arkansas Photographer. Tuesday's Thoughts. Hope

Hope. I love that word...... I love hope. Today's quotes are all about hope..... and I hope they leave you encouraged. :)

"There are no hopeless situations; there are only men and women who have grown hopeless about them."

-Marshall Ferdinand Foch (WWII hero)

"Hope... means... a continual looking forward to the eternal world... It does not mean that we are to leave the present world as it is. If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next... It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth "thrown in": aim at earth and you will get neither."

-C. S. Lewis

And because no post is complete without a picture..... here is a shot from my Brainwash with Lauren Clark...... edited with her fabulous UNO tips!! More about the Brainwash (it was amazing) coming soon..... along with more pictures!!!

Tidbits for Tuesday

Tidbits for Tuesday...... still working on the name..... but I have wanted to have some type of weekly post for awhile..... and I am starting it today! Every Tuesday I will post a quote (because I am kinda obsessed with quotes) and perhaps a picture from the week! Just something to think about as you go about your Tuesday. Not really crazy about calling it "Tidbits for Tuesday" so if you can think of something that sounds a little more fun/unique..... leave me a comment!! First up..... one of my favorite quotes ever.... and a couple pics of the gorgeous flowers that were on all the trees up until a couple weeks ago (I kinda think the pics and the quote go together!)

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

-C. S. Lewis
