There are some couples that are just plain easy to photograph. It has nothing to do with whether or not they’re celebrity-level attractive, or have been taking modeling lessons since they were four years old, or how many birthday portrait sessions their parents may or may not have forced them to sit through in department store studios year after year. Nope, it’s none of those things, at all.
Their secret ingredient? That thing that that makes me squeal behind my camera every time they look at each other? The magic that makes their portrait time so enjoyable and smooth that we accidentally run 20 minutes over schedule without even noticing? It’s the same thing that likes up her eyes each time Miki looks at Jeff, and the secret that shined for the world to see on Jeff’s huge smile as he watched his wife walk down the aisle towards him.
It’s love, sweet love, my friends. And Miki and Jeff have a lot of it.
Love for each other. Love for their families. Love for each and every one of their friends. And a love for the Lord that spills out of their lives and onto every around them. You can’t be near Miki and Jeff and not see how immensely in love they are with one another, and on their wedding day, I’m pretty sure that joy, excitement and happiness increased ten-fold, written all over their faces.
Miki and Jeff, I was so honored to be a part of your day and so thankful that you and your family welcomed me into your lives with open arms. To two are some truly special people and am so proud not only to call you my clients but also my friends. I can’t wait to see where your love takes you in your married life! In the meantime, enjoy some of my very favorite images from your wedding day!

MARRIED!!! I don’t normally include family formals in my blog posts, but this light was so wonderful, and these families so amazing, that I just had to!
A pretty good looking bridal party, don’t you think?
Get ready for some adorable married love…
