Her cathedral veil danced in the wind as she gazed into the eyes of her husband. They were married! He was her husband of only one hour but it already felt like a lifetime. How could something so wonderful feel so familiar yet so new and exciting at the same time? It’s how Alyssa feels about Tim and how he feels about his love for her. After being together for eight years, they have already been through so much. But on this day, their wedding day, they embark on this new and wonderful adventure called marriage and they know that their life together is just beginning.

Alyssa and Tim’s wedding was the perfect way to start this wedding season! These two exude sweetness and after their sunrise Engagement Session on the beach, I knew they would be up for anything. Luckily, their day was an absolute breeze. Everything felt so effortless and perfect, just like their love and commitment to one another. This wedding was romantic, whimsical, but still had fun details to make it unique. I loved that Alyssa chose mismatched gray bridesmaids’ dresses for all her girls! They complimented the men’s classic black tuxedos very well. Alyssa has the perfect eye for detail and made sure every single piece of this wedding day felt natural yet blissfully elegant.

Congratulations Alyssa and Tim to your wedding day and your marriage! I know it will be full of so much love and joy!

Alyssa had the sweetest gifts for her mom and dad!

Tim surprised Alyssa with flowers before the wedding. Her response as she started to cry, “He never gets me flowers.”

Alyssa makes the most beautiful bride!

Father/daughter first look! He couldn’t help but cry when he saw his little girl!

Married! Time to celebrate!!

Tim’s parents and Alyssa’s parents! Could they be any cuter?!

The Newlyweds, Mr. & Mrs. Sambs!

Oh my goodness, these two are absolutely stunning together!

Joyeux Vendredi! If you’ve noticed from my Instagram Stories lately, I’ve been exploring the beautiful city of Paris this past week. I can safely say, I’m already in love! I still have a few more days here so instead of sharing only a part of my trip, I’m waiting until I’m back in America. For now, I’m off to enjoy every single moment here and take every little piece in. The recap for this trip is hitting the blog soon so stay tuned!

Follow along on the journey –

Au revoir!

Sawyer is a year old! How is that possible?! Wasn’t it just yesterday that he was so tiny and adorable as I photographed his newborn session? It’s amazing how fast this year has gone by but I’m so happy that I could document each important moment in the lives of the Rogers Family.

We celebrated Sawyer turning one with a fun photoshoot right in the family’s backyard. Even though it rained the entire time, we made the most of the crazy weather. Sawyer’s mama, Laura, always has the cutest ideas and outfits. I loved their outfits for this shoot, custom “Papa,” “Mama,” and “Baby Bear” t-shirts! As our shoot wrapped up, Laura brought out a cake she made for Sawyer and he couldn’t resist shoving his entire face into it! I don’t blame him, I would have done the same!

Happy one year of life, little Sawyer! It’s been an honor to watch you grow in the last year.
