Alicia & Dustin | Wedding

Think of the sweetest, most kind couple you know. Now change their names to Alicia and Dustin… THAT is the kind of couple we had the honor of working with earlier this month. A&D tied the knot at Grace Bible Church, and danced the night away at Northwest Forest Conference Center. An incredible team of vendors made this incredible day what it was… Charmed by Tonya, Striking Stems, Celebrations & Sweet Creations, JPL Entertainment, and George Street videography. Not to mention Alicia’s stunning Pronovias gown and Badgley Mischka shoes!

A&D – The three of us were so thankful for the opportunity to capture your wedding day! I, for one, refuse to accept that I’m done photographing y’all. So promise to call me when you need your babies photographed ;) Hope you enjoy these favorite images! And enjoy your new adventure! XO!!

The Vo’s | Family

AFP shot Tammy and Sonny’s wedding over two years ago. And I’ve just recently had the opportunity to take their family portraits with their sweet daughter, Lauren! We had the most GORGEOUS light and location. And subjects who should be in some sort of ad somewhere ;) Hope you enjoy!!
