Carol Smith-Guilliams Bridal Shoot

I've been DYING to post these forever, but since the wedding was tonight, I finally can!

My first bridal shoot was at the Capitol.

Me and "The Capitol" are no longer friends. The lighting is horrible, but I did learn lots of great lessons.

To poor Carol's expense :-(

But she still loves me and says I'm just too hard on myself. is my beautiful and quirky bride!

I LOVE what they are doing with their shoes. They are both wearing these electric kicks with their wedding date embroidered on them.

This was the necklace Colton got her for Christmas one year.

Her eyes are mesmerizing!

He did good on that ring.

I ADORE this picture for some reason.

Now THIS...this is Carol. The Carol we all know and love and are super excited to see walk down the aisle to the man she has loved for as long as I can remember...

My Best Friend's Wedding

Yes, it has taken me a month with these pics, but since I have such an emotional connection to all of this, I wound up keeping and editing more pictures than I ever have for one session.

195 Keepers to be exact.

Out of 987.

AND they had to be just right. For our "Mrs. Kiss"!

She loves to see her whole new name

Look at her! She was so happy!


Those of us who know her...this pic makes us happy

Her son gave her away. This was the first time he saw her before the wedding in her bridal room. It was the most precious thing ever!

Chris chose to have all of the audience choose a flower when they walked in. Then, as she walked down the aisle she gathered her bouquet. And had an opportunity to love on and everyone who was there. (Note: She already had a "first look" with Mark so she could do this)

After the wedding they chose to stay up front and allow everyone to come and visit and love on them right there. It was beautiful!

I'm a hair partial to these 2

Her gathered bouquet

Best friends just enjoying this day

I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of watching God bring this about...
Brokenness to restoration...
Beauty from ashes....
For the Elsingers!
