It’s an honor when anyone asks me to be a part of their wedding day. But, it’s especially an honor when I get asked back by a family to shoot another one of their children’s weddings. I first shot Matt and Rachel’s wedding in Idaho in the summer of 2008. Next up was this wedding, Matt’s younger sister Kendall and her husband also named Matt. And lastly will be their brother Cameron and his bride Annabelle in November. I practically feel like family now
It makes shooting weddings like this so much fun. It’s great to see familiar faces and to know everyone’s stories. It makes going to work not seem like work. You feel like a guest because everything is so much more personal. I got teary when Kendall walked down the aisle with her dad and saw how excited she was to see Matt. I had to hide my ugly crying face behind my camera when Kendall danced with her dad. Not just because I know how close their relationship is, but because it was the first wedding I shot after my baby girl Kennedy was born. All I could do was picture Chuck dancing with Kennedy at her wedding.
It was so fun to see how excited Kendall and her mom, Kaylin, got seeing their vision of the wedding come to life. Kaylin cried. A lot. She even cried when she saw the amazing dessert room It was so cute!
It was an absolute honor to photograph Kendall and Matt’s wedding. Thank you to the Murray family for asking me back and entrusting me with the memories of one of the most important days in all of your children’s lives. It means so, so much to me and I can’t wait to see you all in November! Here’s the slideshow!

I love Flower Allie. Her flowers are always unique and beautiful!
Kerrie Underhill from Platinum Weddings from Kerrie did an amazing job making Kendall’s vision a reality. I love the touch of vintage details while keeping the wedding romantic and elegant.
If there is one piece of advice I can give to couples planning their wedding I would tell them to invest in good lighting for your reception. Good lighting can transform a boring ball room into a beautiful and elegant reception. Makes such a remarkable difference! LSM Entertainment provided the lighting as well as the DJ services. One of the best DJ’s I’ve worked with. Kept the party going the entire time and played AWESOME music!
