About 3 years ago, I got a wedding inquiry. It was my first full year of photographing weddings, so this was a big deal. (I’m mean, it still is, let’s be real) But if I had any idea then what this one little inquiry would lead me to, I would have been bouncing off the ceiling, probably crying tears of joy, too (because I’m a crier, so I just kinda cry all the time). What started out as one wedding for this family, led me to another, and then another, and then even more. I’ve photographed 6 weddings for this incredible family, and the joy that has brought me is almost indescribable. I’ve always said that I love photographing weddings for people I know, it makes those special moments even more precious for me, and I feel like I’ve really gotten to know this family over the past 6 weddings with them. That has made capturing these moments for them that much more fulfilling for me.
So let’s share the Bumgardner/Jackman wedding timeline with you all. I’ll pause so you can catch up.
…and finally, last, but certainly not least, Meghan & Troy’s Breckenridge wedding!
I was so excited for this day. So excited to see all the familiar faces again and to see what beautiful moments the Bumgardner’s would throw my way this time. Per usual, they didn’t disappoint! Meghan & Troy’s Breckenridge wedding was SO emotional and so full of love. Meghan has the most stunning smile, that lights up her whole face and makes it so you can’t help but smile with her. And Troy knows just how to make Meghan smile, whether that’s with a joke, a quick kiss, or even just a look. That was probably my favorite thing about this day, how much these two smile and laugh together. It’s constant, so heartwarming.
My second favorite thing about this day was the tears. All the happy tears. (I’m looking at you, Lee) I usually get teared up a time or two at a wedding day, I’m an emotional girl, but man, these guys had tears streaming down my face right along with them.
Meghan & Troy – congratulations! I know you guys are going to have an incredible adventure of a life together, laughing the whole way! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day.
Jill & Lee, thank you for bringing me into your lives and welcoming me into your family. I’m beyond honored to have been a part of these once in a lifetime days for your children. My life has been blessed by your sweet spirits.
Next up, Bumgardner babies!!
I had to get one photo of me with all my Bumgardner couples!! This is getting framed for my office for sure!
