Eleanor and Kevin : Wedding // Murray Hill, Virginia | The Knot + Green Wedding Shoes

Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 4.57.30 PM

I thought about putting together a 2013 Year In Review post, but after looking back I decided this cheeriest day of summer had enough of my year wrapped up in its story that it only seems right instead. : )

It started out as any another wedding…typical except for the interview call from Africa about some people who met in England and fell in love in Kenya and were getting married in Virginia before they moved to Scotland.  They were instantly stuck to my heart and I’ve been so blessed by their hospitality in my adventures across the pond. From Kevin teaching me stick shift + frolicking by the sea in England in the winter to the city streets and crumbling bookstores of Glasgow this fall, their lives have been such a gift to mine.

They’re the sort of couple who live out their priorities no matter of how difficult it is to get there, and I know their commitment to that will keep making their lives so special.

Their wedding was a gem of a day with its joy and play and whimsy, and the people they chose to bring their vision to life are some of the absolute best too. (Most especially Laura with Events in the City and Paula who shot with me!) It was featured on Green Wedding Shoes and then also a 6-page feature in The Knot (national!) magazine, which is the biggest honor of basically all ever.

So, here’s to 2013 – to the colors, the adventures, the stuck-to-your-heart-friendships; the lessons learned, the joys chosen, and the love of God known.

travels : a splendid october // scotland + england

Scotland-England-landscapes0056

“For Your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in Your faithfulness.” Psalm 26:3

I’ve had much to be grateful for in this shining year, and this trip was a special gift. It was gutsy and spontaneous and seemed entirely illogical, but was an incredible way to live an October.

My home base was in Glasgow’s West End with Scotland’s hottest couple, and from there I took trips east to Edinburgh, south to Birmingham, and west again to the Isle of Skye. These mountains and misty coastlines do something special to my heart, and getting to photograph a few dream shoots (all for the love) made it beyond everything ever. (see them here, here, and here!)

These are some frames from the windowseats and infinite views, and a little video at the end too from all the everydays.

I feel like i just took a trip through Scotland from my living room. that was an amazing video, also the whole time i was watching/listenin i was thinking that really sounds like something dale clay would write…sure enough! its so exciting to see all the adventures you go on! also, theres always a place for you in nashville if your ever in the area!

So magical! I love all your photos 🙂

SO beautiful! I am of scottish descent! I’d love to go there. Beautiful photos.

oh mighty God, what majesty you make.

as one who has not made it to scotland just yet, this was a staggeringly beautiful representation of the countries wildness and allure. thank you (so).

my romantics heart was brimming over and torn apart by all the scenes from train windows, train platforms, stations and signs. i’ve been breathless until i’m forced to gasp-exhale.

also. that boat get’s me every time and i think often that it is only i dream that i’ve met you in the flesh. you are so enchanting.
