Gosh, I love this family! We've not only created memories for them, but they have done so for us...their wedding, Cubs games, more weddings, and now newborn/family photos. They have been sooo good to us over the years, and we have been blessed because of it.
I loved getting to know the newest member of their family! Big brother, Harry, was quite the fan of his little brother, as well. Looking forward to capturing more of the 4 of them throughout the coming year. Much love to you guys!!
I have loved capturing these three over the past 6 months. Nicole and Kelly already feel like old friends, and sweet Sully has quite the personality. His sweet smiles melt my heart. It won't be long before we are capturing his first year, and I can hardly wait (though, I'm not wishing time away--it goes fast enough as it is :). Hugs to the 3 of you! I've loved getting to know you....many hugs!
As our one year approaches, I can't help but think of how much my husband and I's lives have changed in the past 12 months. We have recently moved to England, and it seems like forever ago that we had the best day of our lives! As we travel around Europe, I often try to take him back to places I have gone before. But I must admit, it isn't the conversations or tour guides that help me remember the monuments and plazas I've visited. It's the pictures. I'll often say "hey, I have a photo here with my sister from college" or "this is in my scrapbook!" As meaningful as those places were upon first sight, memory fades. It's the image that lasts forever and helps us remember.
When it comes to our wedding day, that could not apply more. As much as you try to take it all in, there is a lot packed into those 24 hours! Mel and Jeremy's images completely capture what I want to remember about the day I married my best friend. Our wedding album is a joyful reminder of how fantastic that day was; we flip through it often and find new things every time.
In Mel, you get so much more than a photographer. I wish everyone could see the way she and Jeremy work. There isn't a bossy bone in her body, yet she quietly and effectively gets everything done. I think we were ahead of schedule, and who can say that about their wedding?? Carpenter Photo is like a photographer, wedding planner, therapist, and overall wedding guide wrapped up into one package. She and Jeremy have a wonderful way of getting the shots they need without being obtrusive, especially during the ceremony. I can barely remember where they were, yet the moments are perfectly captured.
Jake and I have both said, "the day just would not have been the same without the Carpenters." And we mean it 100%. We are so grateful for the beautiful images they gave us. Not only is their art fantastic, their personalities are sincere and SO easy to work with. I truly have nothing but the best to say! THANK YOU for your hard work and above and beyond attitudes. Jake and I are so thankful we had you both there to capture our special day!!
Katy took the liberty of sending this testimonial to us. We don't do a lot of advertising because we have been blessed with so many wonderful referrals that it hasn't been necessary. Yet, I realize that I've been bad about sharing any of the kind words/notes/emails we've received from so many of our clients over the years, and have had a hard time knowing how to express any of it. So, we decided to start a testimonial section that will allow potential clients to see a bit of what our clients have seen from working with us.
Happy Anniversary, Katy & Jake! We love you both to pieces! Thank you so much for your thoughtful words! Hugs to you both!
God blessed us with the perfect brother for Tate.
Can't wait to see them grow up together, playing sports & doing all things boy!
Harrison is sweet, loves to be cuddled and, best of all, he's already a Momma's boy like his big brother!
May they stay that way! Love my boys!

A tad close for my camera?? Ha!! ;) I had just as much fun with Tate as I did with his baby brother.
As much as I love photographing the same faces time and time again, I (equally) love the opportunity to get to know and capture new faces. This family was such a treat to photograph. Within minutes we felt like old friends...and, sweet Harrison was so much fun to document.
I am looking forward to capturing this precious family throughout the coming year as we watch sweet Harrison grow! Many hugs to you guys! Looking forward to connecting again soon!
I was honored when Amanda contacted me to do her senior photos. We had a wonderful evening catching up on her future plans as she finishes out her high school career. I knew from her 4th grade year that she would dream big and exceed her goals. She is already doing that, and I loved hearing all about it!
Many hugs to you, Amanda! Excited to see where this next chapter in life takes you!!!
