I’ve known Melora since she was just a kiddo. She was one of my mom’s students in the Spivey Hall Children’s Choir, and, while making photos for the choir, Melora and I connected over our love for photography.
When Melora called and asked me to shoot her wedding, I was — well, first I was like, “Wait. Aren’t you still fourteen?” But THEN I was just plain ol’ excited. Celebrating with people I already know and love is SO. MUCH. FUN!
Melora, I’m so happy you and Ben included me in this totally perfect celebration of your love for one another! I adore you; I’m enormously happy for you; and I couldn’t be more honored.
Melora is fantastically expressive. I love photograph people who’s happiness just spills out of them!
Pretty precious: Melora’s ring — diamond INCLUDED — fit inside Ben’s ring. Didn’t even know this was possible!
This venue was very simple, but the gorgeous skylight in the girls’ room upstairs made for some really lovely light!
Melora gave Ben two Fossil watches. I loved this, because the first gift I ever gave my husband Dan was a Fossil watch. He still has the little tin it came in and everything!
Melora’s gift: a pearl necklace and matching earrings.
M and her dad…
Good luck charms:
I love this shot of Melora with her dad, framed by both of the moms:
Melora, her mom, and a small crew of friends hand-folded over SIX HUNDRED origami flowers for Melora’s wedding. When she told me they were decorating with paper flowers, I though, okay, sure, fun DIY project. I NEVER imagined how intricate and colorful they would be! They complimented Melora and Ben’s joy and energy perfectly!
