A Liberty University Wedding | Zach & Lindsay

Have you ever been completely surrounded by GOOD people? I mean... standing in a room of 200+ people all of whom have the most genuine and joy-filled hearts you've ever met? I have. It was at Zach and Lindsay's wedding. I even looked at my second-shooter that day, Maria, and I said "Every single person here is so GOOD. They are all oozing-joy... shining their genuinely happy hearts all around this room!" She confirmed the feeling I had. 

If that doesn't say something about the kind of people Zach and Lindsay are, I don't know what would. They are kind hearted, gentle, and without sounding cliche... beautiful from the inside out. They love one another and the people around them with a deep love. Their smiles lit up their entire wedding day. They had so many people surrounding them who were ready and eager to celebrate the commitment they were making and the future God has planned for them.

It was so, so beautiful. This was definitely a favorite wedding of mine from 2014 and I am so excited to finally share it with you!! 

(Check out the video at the bottom if you have a chance. Their friend Jared flew from overseas to capture their day and the trailer gives me goosebumps...! Ah I love these two!)

And a sweet, sweet word from Lindsay about our experience together:

"I've been thinking about this email for 2 weeks, trying to figure out how to best explain how grateful I am for the stunning work you did capturing our wedding.  I truly don't have the words (although I am, of course, going to try to find them!).  I look through each gallery with great care, soaking in the images and letting the memories of that wonderful day flood back.  You told our story.  You captured the love not only between Zach and I, but with the precious people who surrounded us and celebrated with us that day.   You caught my ridiculous faces, our bursts of laughter, tender glances, my brother not paying attention during the groomsmen's prayer... all the personal details that are just US.  I could not be any more thrilled or delighted!  The pictures are so much more than I would have thought to hope for.... they are perfect!

My parents and I both agree that one of the best decisions made during the wedding was asking you to be our photographer.  We sat and looked through them together this weekend when they came to visit, and had the BEST time reliving the day! As I've said before, I felt like I was working with a dear friend through the entire process, and I just don't have the words to explain how grateful that you were the one capturing our day. "

Thank you to Zach and Lindsay for inviting me to be a part of such a monumental event in their lives. I just love when I have the chance to get to know my clients and be a part of something so big!! :) :)
