Blake & Katie are married!- Durham Wedding Photographer

A few months ago over facebook my friend Katie and I started reconnecting. She was newly engaged, and I was so excited to hear the story! Our lives had gone in different directions…hers lead to Colorado, and then Texas. And, mine was Asheville, NC and then down to Atlanta. But, it was so special to be able to hear Katie tell me about a man named Blake, that I had also known about all those years ago! I remember sitting on my bed for at least an hour getting the whole story, and realizing what wonderful timing for these two to be reconnected and getting married.

Blake and Katie dated back in college, so it is so sweet to see how the Lord has worked things out in their personal lives, and how that makes their bond now even stronger. One of my favorite parts of the service was an Ebenezer that they had their family and friends build near the altar to represent each significant place they have been over the past few years, and to signify coming together. I know that meant a lot to those attending the service to hear more of their love story! They titled the weekend, “A great day in May!” It sure was!

Thank you Blake and Katie for having us at your wedding! For being good friends, and such a relaxed and amazing couple! We were honored to spend Memorial Weekend at the wedding of a soldier and his bride!!!
I absolutely love the next few with Katie and her dad! It is always so sweet the way a dad’s face will light up the first time he sees his daughter dressed for her wedding day. And, the way they steal a few last glances of their daughters just before they go down the isle.

I love all the expressions in this picture. The crowd was gathering to pray for the couple, and Blake stole one last look at those gathering around them.

Something Katie and I talked about in our first phone call was the entire wedding party walking over to the reception just a block away. We had fun taking our time over there, and grabbing some creative shots.
