In May I had the honor of photographing my dear friend Hayli Strickland's wedding. Hayli and I met at Eastern. We were lab partners in our Astronomy class. When we both showed up on the lawn at EKU with a large stack of flash cards in our hands to study- I knew we were going to become good friends. That is exactly what happened.

It's such an honor to be hired to photograph someone's wedding, especially a good friends. A wedding photographer experiences a wedding in such a unique way. We become almost as involved as the Bride & Groom. We have the privilege of capturing all the details of the day as well as the emotion in everyone's hearts...

Hayli and Steven... thank you so much for making me a part of your special day. Thank you for trusting me to capture the magical moments of your life.

I also want to thank my very talented friends who joined me on this journey. Kelly Brown of J.A.Y.S.Photography. All your endless hours of research and attention to detail made the wedding day go seamless. Your photographs are as beautiful as you are. Danita Rogers of Danita Rogers Photography.
