I lived with M during my last two years in College Station. It was such a gift that the Lord brought us together.
A few months into living together, McKenna and Garrett started dating. It was pretty dang sweet for me to be able to witness them all the way from their early stages of dating to realizing they wanted to get married. These two are two of the most encouraging, kind, celebratory, servant-hearted and Jesus-loving people I know. They are absolute go-getters who love strong and live with such a deep motivation and passion to live out God’s will in every facet of their lives. Truly, I am SO thankful for them!
Fun fact: McKenna and Garrett’s engagement is actually the very first blog post on my website. Check it out here! After they got engaged, their wedding was planned in less than four months later.
McKenna asked me to photograph her wedding and I was so overjoyed by it. Soon after, though, she asked me to be her bridesmaid. Luckily, I had hired a mutual close friend of ours to second shoot the wedding with me, so it all worked out. It was the first and only time I have served the role of both, a photographer and a bridesmaid at the same time.
Their wedding took place in Austin, Texas on a lovely Sunday afternoon, and I’m so excited to tell you about it!
The big day started off with a slow morning filled with precious moments- including some FaceTime with dear friends who couldn’t make it for different reasons. The first look with her dad was filled with giggles and tears, there was a special time of worship before the ceremony, and McKenna and Garrett’s first look was so sweet. Honestly, there was nothing not to love about this day. It was just a special celebration of two very special people and what God has orchestrated between them. So, that being said, I’m going to let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!

Some of these images were taken while second shooting with other photographers. If I am unavailable for your day, I would be more than happy to send you to one of these trusted photographer friends of mine.
