Best of 2016

Weddings

[Preliminary Warning: there’s lots of images in this post so give it a few moments to load before scrolling.] 2016 was our first official year as Kindred Storytellers and we couldn’t be more excited for what 2017 holds. Per usual, we learned a ton by making mistakes and making some images we’re proud of in the process. We’re so grateful for all the incredibly diverse and unique couples that include us on such an intimate and monumental day. If there’s one thing we’ve learned as a couple planning our own wedding it’s make the event your very own. Don’t worry if it’s not perfectly on point or on trend, do what feels right and creative and representative of you both. Do that and we promise: it’ll be epic. See our favorites below!

Holly + Austen’s Urban DIY Wedding at The Loft on Pine
Holly and Austen are total gems. They're so fun and positive, that you can't help but know life is great when you're around them. Their wedding displayed all the elements for a really freaking amazing time with their friends and family. Perfect music, yummy food, a beautiful space, even their initials in big marquee letters. They put so much thought into all the little details and made the event truly their own. And everyone there felt it. It was one of the most celebratory weddings we've ever photographed and we're so happy we got to party alongside this amazing pair. Here are some photos to prove it:

Anne + Cole
Anne and Cole were married on an extremely rainy and dreary day. But because of their positivity, total love for each other and support from their family, it was nothing but romantic and epic. It made me wish that every wedding day had rain. It made people huddle together that much closer. They were all in it together. And after much debate, everyone gathered under a massive moss-covered tree, umbrellas in hand and soaked up every moment of a truly intimate, intentional and emotional ceremony. As the rain came down, Anne and Cole said their vows, exchanged rings and a snot covered kiss with total joy. It was a truly unique and inspiring thing ...

Elizabeth + Chris
Hey all. Elle here. This wedding has been on my mind recently and originally we weren't planning on blogging it because it all happened so fast and I didn't know how much I'd be able to even capture of their day. Elizabeth had heard of me through a friend and reached out a few weeks before her wedding date. She shared how laid back and intimate their wedding was and from the sound of her voice, I could sense how completely at peace she was about the whole process. As someone that is currently planning her wedding, I've found myself in black holes of Pinterest and my soul, feeling the pressure to craft some perfect experience that deeply displ ...
