Sacagawea Park Wedding: Joel and Mikaela

I never get tired of weddings. Every time I still get the butterflies as I pack the car and head to the venue. Every time the Father/Daughter moment makes me cry and the way a groom looks at his bride makes me want to fling myself into the arms of my own husband at home. Relationships of love are the building blocks of all reality* and weddings are such a reflection of that truth. A new household emerges and a new chapter unfolds as two lives become one surging forth into a new reality.

  This wedding was uniquely beautiful in that it really emphasized that point over and over again. Self-giving love was the heart-song of this wedding and it was truly a majestic thing to witness.

  Joel and Mikaela were friends since wee babes 😉 and gradually their friendship blossomed into the passionate culmination of love you see below. They have been through heartache and joy and remained faithful, loving and committed till the end.

   Thank you Joel and Mikaela for the immense privilege of being part of your day, of entrusting your memories to my care. Your first family heirloom starts here (aside from your rings of course) and it is such an honor to be a part of that new legacy. Thank you for your cheerful flexibility with the haphazard weather and for embracing the process 😉  Lots of love- Christa

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
