Wow, where do I even start with this one?!?! Madison & Joey’s wedding was so special to me for so many reasons, and in many ways it was so surreal for me to even be photographing it! You see, nearly TEN years ago Stephen and I had the incredible privilege of leading the teen ministry at our church, and Maddie and many of her closest girlfriends were a part of it from their pre-teen years all the way up to their high school graduation. To say we’ve seen her grow up is most definitely true, and it’s been so amazing to see her go from a young girl to a mature woman. Their wedding took place on Maddie’s parent’s property, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect setting nestled among the beautiful trees of the Oregon forest. It brought back so many fun memories of intense games of capture the flag, shaving cream fights, and bon fires that lasted late into the night that once all took place in the very same spot that her and Joey exchanged their “I do’s”.
It’s been so fun to watch Madison & Joey’s love blossom from a sweet interest to a deep, deep love for one another. The joy on their special day was contagious and it was such a blessing to be a part of it. Maddie and Joey, thank you so much for allowing me to be there for your incredible union, and I’m so excited to see all of the ways God will work in your guys’ marriage! I love you!!
