“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” ― E.E. Cummings A day packed full of laughter and joy is exactly how I’d describe Chris and Mindy’s wedding last weekend.

A day packed full of laughter and joy is exactly how I’d describe Chris and Mindy’s wedding last weekend. Whether it was while they were getting ready, during their portraits, during the ceremony, during the toasts, and all throughout the reception, every time I looked at them, they were laughing. Giddy with excitement, joy, and love for all of the people who joined them to celebrate. It was a pretty perfect day, if I do say so :)  watching Chris try to find the words to describe how incredible Mindy looked was one of my favorite parts of the day! He was speechless! …aaand they’re gone ;)

it had been almost 6 years exactly since the last time I saw Erin, so I was SO excited when she reached out saying we’d be in town at the same time! I got to spend the morning at Epcot exploring an empty world showcase with her and her sweet family, and we had the most perfect morning! and how precious is Emma?! they were worried she’d be a bit shy and not too smiley, but she certainly proved them wrong and was in the happiest mood! thanks again for spending the morning with me! so good to see you all! :)
one of my faaavorites!!

I’m so excited to share a handful of my “Neverland” WDW family portrait sessions from earlier this month! These sessions have quickly become my favorite to photograph, walking around the park with sweet friends capturing all of the things their family loves best about this special place… does it get better than that?!  all of the holiday decor around the park was SO gorgeous! definitely my favorite time of year at the magic kingdom! one of my favorites from their session!! Casey’s Corner has so much special meaning for Jessica and her family, and I love that we were able to work it into their session so much :)
thanks again for letting me join you for the morning! :) have a magical day!
