Mitch + Ren | The Barn at Shady Lane

It was the coldest day of the season so far, but the sun poured golden light all around The Barn at Shady Lane, making everything look warm and creamy. The barn smelled of fresh flowers and peppermint icing. This was a shoot I had been looking forward to for months.

Every detail fell into place perfectly, from the beautiful florals by Stems and Styles, to the delicious wedding cake by Angie's Cakes. Somer Howe did Ren's hair and makeup, while I snuck away with her wedding dress, altered beautifully by her grandmother, for some detail portraits.

After that, the newlyweds and I headed out to begin shooting. We enjoyed cake, hot apple cider, and a walk in the sun. I couldn't have chosen a better couple to work with, their chemistry was just the easiest thing in the world to capture! Not to mention their willingness to endure the cold for the sake of our photos! ;)

I am so thankful to everyone who helped make this day possible. I couldn't have done it without you!
