Koven and Tracy | A Wedding Story

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Tracy and Koven really are the perfect pair.  They met while on base, she was in the army and he, a marine.  They met on the basketball court, which suits them perfectly.  They are both fiercely competitive.  It was only natural that the basketball court is where Koven proposed.
Their wedding day peppered with military accents of navy and gold.  
Tracy wore her mothers' wedding dress.  A few alterations made to fit her style.  The DIY details are abundant and they labor of love this wedding was shines in every aspect.  Koven and Tracy, it was a pleasure to document your wedding story.

LOVE the guys' style

A seriously rocking reception.  Complete with photo booth, karaoke and LOTS of unexpected dance routines!

When you are too busy to blog it means you have so much to share during the cold months!
One of my fall sessions and a family I look forward to seeing every year.  LOVE these girls and their beautiful mom.  Dad, you're pretty cool too :)  A few of my favorites:

The perfect way to showcase your 2011 family session!

Campbell Family

Grant came running up in his fitted jeans, trendy plaid top and pulled me in for a huge hug.  I melted.  

These kids they all grow so fast.  Each year they return a little taller and a bit more mature.  I want to stop the clock, bottle the minutes and save them for later.  Exactly what a picture is meant to do.  
To savor those moments.  To remind parents to enjoy the laugh to enjoy the way their eyes light up when they are excited.  To stop and listen in on a good game of pretend play.  A picture will always take you back to that moment.  
Because childhood really is magical.

Balee Family
