Aubrey & Cody

If you don’t know my love for the movie, About Time, perhaps we don’t hang out as much as we should. Do yourself a favor and watch it tonight. This isn’t a spoiler alert or a movie review, but a nod to the movie’s beautiful story of cherishing time.

“We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.” 

Throughout the years of balancing a full-time job with wedding photography, I have gotten better at savoring the crazy and leaning into this season of life, instead of bracing myself for a breath not marked with stress.

It is truly people like Aubrey & Cody, their family and friends, that make a mark in our lives and compel us to continue photographing weddings and remind us of the adventure we are on. It’s the story of their relationship, the beauty in every detail carefully laid out, the charm and sweetness of gathering with your closest people for an elegant party.

We have had the opportunity to photograph Aubrey’s brother and one of her sister’s weddings in previous years. I have come to expect that a Flaherty family wedding will boast gorgeous flowers, delicious food, and a true celebration of lovely and kind people. Perhaps we’ll have a spot at a reserved family table at the next wedding…

It’s an honor to know Aubrey, Cody, and their families and have the gift to be blessed with their love and care. It was a gorgeous day we adored photographing.
