yours truly.

I'm here to share a few photos taken of yours truly by the ever lovely Kate Headley. I first met Kate in 2009 at a coffee shop, where she shared a few photos from her recent weddings. Little did she know, I didn't need any convincing. Kate was the only photographer I contacted because her aesthetic just spoke to me. I trusted Kate's eye from the beginning--and it paid off. Our wedding photos truly make the day feel like a dream. The best part? I now call Kate my friend.

When I was in DC in early June, we decided to have a little fun--which involved sneaking into a community garden, being chased by a crazy woman named Barbara, and borrowing a few items from the different plots as props. {Don't worry--we returned them all!} Kate shot entirely on film that day and waiting for the results was worth it :) Per usual, Kate made me feel completely at ease in front of the camera and captured "me" on film. Without further ado...






There you have it! My 13-year-old self would have balked at the tremendous volume of my curly hair that day, but my 27-year-old self embraced it. These photos also give a nod to my southern Indiana upbringing. Though I can't say I ever lived on a farm, I was a twelve-year veteran of 4-H! 

I truly cannot thank Kate enough for a more perfect day--or for these photos. {And yes, you can fall in love with her too--find her here on twitter and facebook. She shares phenomenal photos from recent weddings that will make your heart swoon, I promise.} 

For those of you who liked my new facebook header or my updated twitter picture over the weekend, thank you! I'll share a few other snaps from the second half of the shoot soon :)

  10. Yeah 4-H! I did dairy for about eight years and then intermittently dabbled in cooking, crafts, scrapbooking and public speaking. I pledge my head to clearer thinking.... :)

  17. Oh you look so gorgeous! I totally get what you're sayin about the hair...my hair is naturally curly, and I've learned to embrace its volume instead of trying (and failing, I might add) to tame it! These photos are beautiful.

  37. I've been out of the blog world for a few weeks so I'm just now starting to catch up... you are so pretty! And I think your hair looks fantastic (my pre-teen self would have said the same as yours, but I've come to love big hair recently - the bigger the better!).
