Kayla and I share something that has bound us together for life… the trials and triumphs of being a bakery girl at Landes Meats. We worked together, cutting out and icing sugar cookies, rolling party breads early on Saturday mornings, and discussing her OCD about colors being in their proper place ( : ] ), for almost 4 years. Very few people (Brenda, Ashley,my sister, and Karen, Kayla’s mom) can understand just what that means so it is a very special bond… haha. Kayla is truly one of the the sweetest girls I know. She has a huge heart and an infectious laugh. I was so happy when she asked me to take the pictures for her wedding. There is something really strange and surreal when you see the girls you used to dream about your wedding day with when you were younger actually get married. There’s something even more surreal about it when you get to be the one who captures the moments that make up that day.
We went to Yellow Springs and it was a gorgeous fall day. This brick building with the ivy and colored leaves and rusty stair case … has to be one of my favorite places to take pictures by far. And can I just say, that this song by Ray LaMontagne has changed my life… not literally, but artistically. Props go to my dear Kelsey for sending it my way. I love his voice… it is so soulful and sincere. Kayla said she and Tom like Rock… and I know this is more along the lines of soul, but I felt like it was the best way to compromise and marry the two. I hope you two like it : )
wide shots are never my favorites, but I love this one : )
