After a very long maternity leave (five months, to be exact) I am back to shooting! I had some amazing associate shooters take care of my late winter/early spring weddings for me while I recovered from giving birth to our triplet girls in February. (Yes, you read that correctly. Triplets!)
Cassey + Joshua’s wedding at The Carriage House in Jefferson County, Tennessee was my first wedding back after birth! I actually did their engagement session in the fall as one of my last shoots before starting my maternity leave at Christmas. Cassey + Josh have been together since 2015. Even though they are from a small town where you would think they would have known each other already, they didn’t officially meet until college! They had a Sunday morning wedding at The Carriage House surrounded by their loved ones. Here are my top favorite moments from their day:
- You’ll see what I’m talking about when you get to the portraits of Josh and his groomsmen, but those guys are a RIOT. From Josh carrying his ring-bearer upside down, to the boys pushing their friend WAY too high on a swing (only an hour before he was tying the knot), the guys had us in stitches the entire time we were shooting!
- I love sweet sibling moments. Cassey and her siblings had a first look together, and her three brothers shared a dance with her at the reception that had everyone (including me) in tears.
- I loved how easy it was to work with Cassey + Josh all day. Even when it started sprinkling during the wedding party portraits, Cassey just grabbed the train of her dress and ran to the reception building with a smile on her face! Wedding days can be stressful enough, and I love when couples just go with the flow of the day the way Cassey + Josh did.
Here are my favorite images from this stunning May wedding at The Carriage House!
