Lauren & Dylan

June 3, 2014

It was calling for rain last Saturday, kind of like it does every Saturday in spring/summer in Kentucky! Being a natural light photographer, it saddens me when we are forced inside for portraits BUT when the ceremony is actually outside, rain really makes things difficult! We are all thanking God that it didn’t rain a drop! I started the day at Lauren’s mom’s house where the girls were getting ready and where the dress was. Yes THE dress! Man I loved this dress!

You can’t beat Swiss! Paris-Tennessee-wedding-photographer-rachael-houser_0019 Yes, the dress was amazing but her bouquet was not to be out done!

Best First Look I’ve photographed to date and being there when it happened was even more heart-swelling!
