.the barn at gibbet hill wedding photographer | matt + carla.

matt + carla

ahh! This wedding! It was absolutely exquisite! Truly every little detail was a vision come true!

The house Carla grew up in was where she & her bridesmaids got ready!

She walked down the stairs for her dad to see her for the first time in her wedding dress! Not a dry eye in the house!

The Barn at Gibbet Hill was stunning! Rain started coming down, but we didn’t let it stop us!!!

Rachel Girouard, of Alicia Ann Photographers was an amazing second shooter! So thankful for her!!!!!

I couldn’t tell you how happy I was when there was a bit of a break…. Whew!!!!  AHH! So beautiful rain makes things!

Matt & Carla!!!! Thank you for having me capture your day! It was truly an honor!

I am so happy for you & for your lives together!!!!!!

The BEST is YET to COME!

soooo, I asked these four if they would be up for a fun shoot!! they were…. I was so happy! they were so fun to photograph!!

thank you ladies for the awesome shoot! you are all so beautiful inside & out!!!!!
