Holly + Andrew | Gainesville, Florida

My.Goodness. After 25+ weddings this summer (and I still have more to go), I am in a whirlwind! I love the summer though and my weddings this year have just made it all the more sweet. When wedding season ends in about a month, I'll finally be able to catch my breath and start sharing these incredible weddings! Yipppee! Until then, be on the lookout for sneak peeks!

Speaking of weddings and marriage, what better way to celebrate your marriage than with some beautiful portraits together? Too often, couples neglect to document the in-between years; instead they capture only the highlights - their wedding, maybe a family reunion, and hopefully their 50th anniversary. But what about the in-between? Those years are just as important to document, remember, and cherish! Those are the years of figuring it out and growing together and making some tough family decisions. Those are the years where sometimes love might be the only thing that makes the ends meet and at the same time, those years might be flooded with new possibilities coming from every direction!

If you're not from Florida, its heat + humidity can be a little oppressive. Thankfully, Holly and Andrew were game for an early morning session to beat the Florida heat (though we couldn't quite escape the humidity)! This anniversary session was so sweet and with such stunning subjects, it was easy to create some beautiful, timeless portraits for them. Beautiful location. Beautiful people. Beautiful marriage.

Holly + Andrew, happy anniversary and may God bless y'all abundantly in the future with the desires of your hearts. Andrew, thank you for staying as long as you could and for serving Holly in this way. Thank y'all for letting me capture a little of the "in-between." Blessings and love, friends.
