What a wedding day! Ryan and Nicole contacted me FIVE days before their wedding due to their original photographer getting sick. They handled the whole thing like troopers though – but my heart couldn’t help but hurt for them having to figure this out last minute! Nicole and I hopped on a phone call on Tuesday morning to go through all the wedding details and four days later I had the privilege of meeting her and Ryan. Saturday ended up being cloudy almost all day long, with such high winds that the ceremony was moved from the backyard to inside the house. Anyways… all that to say, these two are troopers!
Their wedding day was such an honor to be apart of. One of my favorite moments was when two of their friends sang a love song from the balcony during their ceremony. Everyone had tears in their eyes. My other favorite moment was when Ryan – a man of few words – took out his vows only to put them back in his pocket, grab both of Nicole’s hands and say, “You are an AMAZING woman.” and then proceeded to give his vows off the cuff. It was so them, and so sweet! Go check out those photos below!

Sam and Abbie's Altoona, IA engagement session at Pine Hollow Stables was a horse lovers dream. We spent the whole evening walking around the pasture and even visited the spot where they got engaged!
