Jase and Rebekah: wedding sneak peek #4 hehe :D {kirksville, mo wedding photographer}


"When all the world is spinning ‘round
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
 You anchor me back down


I am nearly world renowned
As a restless soul who always skips town
But I look for you to come around
 And anchor me back down


There are those who think that I’m strange
They would box me up and tell me to change
But you hold me close and softly say
That you wouldn’t have me any other way

 

When people pin me as a clown
You behave as though I’m wearing a crown
When I’m lost I feel so very found
When you anchor me back down "



 -Anchor by Mindy Gledhill

Rebekah: bridal portraits :D :D {shelter gardens, columbia, mo bridal portrait photographer}



My super great friends Jase and Rebekah are finally married as of last Saturday (if you haven't seen my sneak peeks from their wedding, PLEASE do so here, here, and here), so NOW I can share Rebekah's AMAZING bridal shoot from the end of August!! It was a dream to capture my beautiful, special friend in the morning light, and Shelter Gardens was the perfect place to do it :). So sit back, relax, and enjoy :).

Now, Rebekah is an artist (a SUPER creative, unique, and thoughtful artist; there's no one like her) Knowing that, it was no surprise to me that she had some really neat conceptual pictures she wanted to create :D. Her job is graphic design, so at some point she's going to be making something REALLY cool with the images we did specifically for her concepts and probably some of the regular ones too that ended up fitting what she wants to create, but for now, here are the pictures by themselves :) (the next three are a few of the specific concept pictures).

When we walked over to this tree, it reminded me of a place in the Shire. Rebekah said "Yeah! And I always tell Jase 'I'll be your Rosie Cotton' 'cause he's like Sam." :D :D

Love <3. And this quilt was made by Jase's grandmother who passed away in April. A special addition to the shoot.
