Yesterday was my first time photographing a wedding at Red Tail Landing Golf Club! Before we arrived at the space, we spent the morning getting ready at the Wingate by Wyndham hotel rocking out to old school Taylor Swift. Seriously, if you thought listening to “Fearless” was cool 10 years ago, try it with your girl squad while getting pumped for the biggest day of your life! While I was with the lovely ladies, Ryan headed over to meet Zack at the Golf Club to capture some of his final touches.

It was such a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding! The sun was shining but there was a little breeze helping keep everyone cool. Their closest family and friends witnessed their heart-warming commitment to one another as they became husband and wife.

After a fabulous afternoon photographing special moments with family and friends, we headed inside for a delicious dinner catered by the golf club. I was watching the sky pretty closely because I KNEW we were in for a phenomenal sunset. The sunset we witnessed last night is the type of light I dream about and pray for at my weddings. Zack, Sarah, Ryan and I all agreed that we had a little help from a special someone upstairs with the most stunning sunset.

Sarah and Zack, you two are a sweet reminder of love, persistence, authenticity, sincerity and kindness. I genuinely feel like I’ve known you both for a lifetime and was moved to near-tears on many occasions throughout your special day. From the sweet words during your ceremony, to the beautiful tribute to your late father, there were so many beautiful personal touches woven throughout your day that have me falling in love with my job all over again. You two truly have something special and I cannot express how honored I am to have captured your wedding. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting Ryan and I with your day.
