I literally just realized that I never blogged this elopement, and I feel so dumb because it's one of my favorites! I've known Kayla since 2018-ish, and I've photographed she and her husband so many times now, I've lost count, but their wedding day was probably my favorite! So far, it's been my first and only National Park elopement, and it was everything I've ever dreamed of and more!

Cody and Lacy are some of the most kind people I have ever met, and the two of them together truly just makes the world a better place. There were very few formalities to their day, which was so refreshing. They were married under a co
Their original guest count was 437. Mmhmm, you read that right. Jesse and Lindsey's wedding day would have by far, been the largest wedding I've ever shot, but because of COVID, they had to make some pretty significant changes to their day.
