Suzanne & Luke | Elegant Pastel Tent Wedding

I can barely start to describe this sweetest of sweet wedding day. Suzanne and Luke are by far the most in-love couple I’ve ever met. It is abundantly evident that they cherish their love and are so grateful to have found one another. Ordinarily I am not an emotional person, but even my eyes well up when I look back through these memories. Their first look was especially tender. I loved so many of their meaningful details, starting with having their first look and reception on Suzanne’s family land. Backyard receptions are often the perfect blend of elegance and intimate sentimentality. I loved that Luke wore his grandfather’s rings, the old family bible used instead of a ring pillow, Luke’s bow tie that was a nod to his family’s Cattle business and so many other things. Suzanne’s dad completed the little gazebo where they had their first look just in time for the wedding as well. It was the sweetest day you could imagine. I feel so honored to have been a part of it.

Amy M. - Your talent is so remarkable Jennifer. I love all the details you capture. Such a beautiful wedding!

Happy New Year

Happy 2015! I hope everyone had a dazzling New Year’s Eve. We spend ours dancing the night away at a beautiful New Year’s Eve wedding in Charleston. I’m so thankful for each of my wonderful couples. I’ve been so blessed. I’m looking forward to the 2015 season. We are looking forward to visiting some beautiful places to celebrate such sweet and authentic love stories. There are a few open spots for some weddings this year, so contact me soon if you’d like to book here.

Caileigh Kyle - These images are just incredible! That dress is to die for.

Christmas at Home

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful season. We are thanking God for His many blessings this year. It’s been a hard year in many ways, but also one of the most beautiful years of my life. We are savoring our time with family and friends, and also looking forward to 2015. Since Christmas is nearly upon us I thought I’d share a few images of our Christmas cheer at home. I love making everything cozy and festive this time of year. I always say I won’t do much, but end up making at least a few wreaths and putting greenery everywhere. Once I get going, it’s just so hard to stop! I hope you all have a beautiful year. Merry Christmas!

Family Session with J. Layne Photography

Photos are little moments, frozen in time forever. As a photographer, it’s easy to let the documentation of our lives fall to the wayside because I’m constantly documenting for others. But you can’t take back time. Life flies by so quickly and once the moments pass they are gone forever. Images are treasures. These are especially dear to my heart. I love these images so much because they are a true expression of us, who we are and how we love…well, except for the fact we don’t wear fancy clothes like this everyday! Eleanora wasn’t too happy about being outside in the cold, she spit up all over her outfit and my elf ears are poking out! But that’s what makes them authentic. It’s usually when things don’t work out perfectly that the most perfect moments are made. I love them even more because of it. I will always remember this time when we first became a family of three. I know I’m going to blink my eyes and Elle will be all grown up. Every time I book a session for us I’m incredibly glad I did. Letting someone else capture our seasons of life is absolutely invaluable. Just like I’m still in love with our anniversary session with my friend Lauren a while back, I know I’ll hold these dear to my heart for all our years to come. I’m so thankful for my friendship with Chelsi & Justin of J. Layne Photography and for their artistic gifts. I’m blessed to know such sweet and talented people in this industry. I’m so thankful they were able to squeeze us in during one of our quick trips visiting my family. Now on to the images! Prepare to have your heart melted.

This girl is too much. I have never laid eyes on anyone more beautiful in my entire life.

I’m so thankful for the privilege of doing life with this hunk.

Our girl sure is lucky to have his genes.

I feel like a million bucks when he looks at me like this.

Life as a family of three has been such a sweet adventure thus far.

Thanks again Chelsi & Justin! We are appreciate for you both much more than you know! Thank you for these priceless treasures!

Lauren Anne Powell - These are incredibly beautiful and touching to the heart!

Rissi - …and what a sweet family of three you are. :)

Beautiful post and merry Christmas to your family, Jennifer.

Melissa Waldrum - These are beautiful! I am so happy for you and your husband. What a blessing!
