Josh and Hayley are some of the sweetest humans I’ve met. Two individuals on fire for God and not afraid to let their goofball side shine, it’s no doubt that their wedding day was full of laughter and fun.
Hayley and I met years ago through a local women’s hiking group and quickly hit it off. We were both at a point of growing in our faith and it was such a beautiful thing to share together while enjoying the outdoors. We had very loosely kept in touch as the years went by and I nearly screamed with joy when I saw that she had met someone who treated her so beautifully. They eventually got engaged and Hayley had reached out about capturing their wedding day. They had decided that they didn’t need professional photography of the reception (which is totally fine!) so we made a little custom package for them to have the moments ahead of that captured.
I’ll never forget how bright and vibrant the fall colors were in Deerwood on their wedding day. On my drive up from Central Minnesota, where everything had nearly fallen from the trees already, I was in awe at how gorgeous it still was! Though the temperature was a bit cold and windy (and we ended up wrapping Hayley in a blanket in between most of the photos), these two made the absolute most of it.
From their traditional first look at each other during the ceremony, their FIRST KISS EVER as their ceremony first kiss, and so many bring-a-tear-to-your-eye kind of moments, I was a puddle for half of the day. It was truly such an honor to have captured these two begin their chapter of happily-ever-after together with God at the center of it all.
Josh and Hayley,
Thank you for sharing and trusting me to capture your wedding day.
I wish you years of love and laughter as husband and wife.
