these two cuties invited me and my little family out to their lake home in eustis, nebraska on a late september weekend. needless to say we (Clay, I and the kids) traveled out to wide open country, so I could take their engagements. we loved seeing the rolling hills of rural nebraska. I just have to say thank you to weston and julia and your families for hosting us! YOU'RE THE BEST!

nothing is better than love and making relationships that last. honestly, that's all this "job" is about.

You may have seen a lot of these two lately. Incase you didn't know they took me on a weekend trip to Arizona. We shot FOUR shoots. Basically, I documented who they are, wherever they were! By the time we did a little lifestyle lovin' I think we were all super comfortable with one another. It was pure bliss from a photographer's standpoint. Can't get enough of JXJ? See their Horseshoe Bend shoot or their morning hike in Sedona

"The weeks leading up to the wedding were filled with many deep emotions. I’m normally not very emotional, so experiencing that was a change for me. I had longed to marry my high school sweetheart for five years and I almost couldn’t believe that it was finally happening. Being so close to the day that I would commit my life to Leah brought such intense anticipation! I don’t normally cry, in sadness or in joy, but multiple times I found myself tearing up as I thought about how lucky I was to marry the woman of my dreams. One of the moments that I’ll never forget was taking communion together after we had said our vows to one another. The connection that I felt to Leah as we held one another and spent time in prayer through tears is indescribable. The graciousness of God to bring us together as husband and wife and to allow us to mirror what He has done for us will always be one of the greatest sources of joy for me as I look back on that day and as we continue our lives together. Most of the rest of the day was a blur, but it was moments like those that made all the stress of planning and all the years of waiting worth it. I always trusted that my wedding day would be one of the greatest days of my life and without question; it was!" -Reis

waking up at five in the morning to fresh air and a dark sky. we drove up a steep street that winded around the natural landscape. 

after parking and rubbing our eyes to wake up a bit, we started our little morning adventure with red rock underfoot. 

the sun rose over the enormous red rock formations. the cool morning air filled our lungs with life. this was our morning in sedona, arizona.

Okay, can I just take a moment and talk about how F U N these two are?! Garrett is hilarious, goofy and most definitely silly. Jess lights up and you can tell that he is her world. 

Together they strolled the green pastures, high mountains and backroads of Breckenridge, Colorado. 

We decided to shoot in Breckenridge, as both Garrett and Jess would go to this small mountain town for family vacations as children. Something about this place brings both of them peace and happiness. 

I hope y'all enjoy this session as much as I do.

We climbed cliffs, danced in the sun and tip-toed over tide pools. We watched the sun sink over the ocean while the butterflies ran wild in our stomachs.
