K-K-K-Katie Gets M-M-M-Married

While it's no secret how much I love photography...I never want to shoot professionally. I love it too much, to ever do this for a living. I only shoot weddings for people I love...I mean really love! So...when my beautiful and brilliant niece Katie approached me about shooting her engagements and wedding photos, I never even hesitated to say yes.

Katie is one of my ginger-haired brother Blair's daughters. He's a pretty cute grandpa too.

Katie and I have always shared a sweet relationship. And now she shares that same close relationship with her nieces...of course they were thrilled to be flowergirls.

They did it...Hooray!

Katie's older sister Marilee is the gorgeous Mommy of the nieces...the youngest one is Vera.

We did a few of the standard group shots, but Katie's vision for her special day included mostly candid photos.

Everyone who knows Katie agrees...she has this uncanny ability to scatter sunshine and smiles no matter what is going on in her life.

As a young teenage girl, she lost her mother to cancer. She planned all the details of this wedding herself.

I think she had some help from her big sister and a few others in pulling it off.

No offense to Mr. Photobombing Chad...we were all very protective of Katie when she started bringing Chad around. But Katie's love for this guy finally made it clear to all of us that he was here to stay. Such a great guy...and it's clear he adores Katie.

New love...mature we share the same Anniversary. Which I think is pretty sweet.

Big priority for the with the littles. This one is my favorite!

Have you ever noticed that groomsmen are ridiculous?

They act all annoyed that they have to be photographed...

and then they just keep coming up with more ridiculous shot the bum shot...

the pyramid shot...

and the ever popular jumping shot! Men!

Girls are just so much more simpler!

Katie Scarlett you are the image of the perfect bride.

Their reception was held in the backyard of Chad's family home. Henry savoring the treats!

There is something so magical and intimate about a backyard wedding reception.

Open microphone time included this moment when my Dad...Katie's Grandpa...sang to here something he's been singing to her since she was a little girl.

K K K Katie, beautiful Katie,

You're the only g-g-g-girl that I adore;

When the m-m-m-moon shines,

Over the cowshed,

I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.

These photos can't even begin to show the happiness bubble that surrounded Katie the entire day. Her wedding day was perfection and I am guessing it was exactly what she dreamed it would be.

Congratulations Katie and Chad...there are oodles and oodles of sunshine and happiness in the years  ahead. 


  1. Gorgeous wedding and amazing photos Lisa!!

  2. These are such lovely pictures from the beautiful wedding. The venue was really amazing along with the decorations. I’ll also be attending my cousin’s wedding next week at one of the spectacular Chicago wedding venues. We have had a lot of fun these past months planning and arranging the wedding so we are all very excited about it.
