Summer + George | Married

Summing up how special these two people are to me is going to be difficult, so sit back and enjoy the story! About seven years ago, I was sitting in my house nervously awaiting Tommy to pick me up. It was the night I would meet all his closest friends and I was sick to my stomach scared. He assured me that all would be fine on the way to a house party (Baker’s!) and I  really tried to believe him. When I walked in the door, I remember being greeted by Summer in the warmest way. Her adorable, contagious smile was the calm favor I needed to feel at home. A lot of time has passed since that night but I distinctly remember how kind she was to me that first night when I was so nervous.

Years passed and Summer and George met and fell in love! They are always fun and so happy together. As life goes, they were surprised with a sweet baby girl and I photographed her newborn session in 2009. It was my first session with a newborn and Peyton was so kind to me.

When George proposed I was so excited once again to hear from Summer. We scheduled family photos/engagement pics and again, life happens and Summer found out she was expecting baby girl #2 a few months before their September wedding. So we turned the family and engagement photos into family/engagement AND maternity photos and in March, I took Madelyn’s newborn photos!

I truly admire George and Summer for their amazing relationship and how great they are doing raising two beautiful little girls. They are madly in love with their daughters and I just adore their little family so much!

This was a wedding I had been looking forward to for so long and they didn’t disappoint!

Peyton walked right down the aisle to her Daddy where he stole a quick kiss. This totally melts my heart

Summer and George wrote their own vows and had me in tears behind my camera. I loved how they were so candid and sounded exactly like themselves in the words they wrote eachother. Moments like this makes me fall in love with weddings all over again

This sweet family danced to a song together which ended up with all four of them sitting on the floor. I love these next two shots. They are such a beautiful, loving family!

We couldn’t adore the four of you more if we tried. Your family is so special to me and I was thrilled to be a small part of such a beautiful day. Much love to Summer, George, Peyton and Maddy!





And of course…more outtakes from the day!

Quick prayer before the ceremony, perhaps?
