lyndsay & max

I was so happy to take photos of these two very special souls while I was back in Nebraska for ~1.5 months visiting Joe and I’s families. We lucked out with a warm and golden day (few and far between for midwesterners in summer, typically sweating buckets on an August day), and a relatively quiet night at Pioneers Park.

It has a special place in my heart not only for the delicious egg sandwiches, but also because it signifies this monumental leap of faith of uprooting and moving to the west coast.

alli + nic

Alli & Nic’s wedding was tucked in the heart of the Bitterroot National Forest, Montana on a beautiful Airbnb property with two cabins and a walkaround pond. We drove all the way from Seattle, only stopping to stretch our legs and stock up on extra memory cards, and arrived at the venue late in the night. When we arrived, they let us fill our plates with leftover pork chops and mashed potatoes and I immediately felt so much warmth and love.
