Mr & Mrs. Hellums

When Hayley first emailed me I was so excited to find out that I was one of her first vendors that she was booking. She said ‘she knew she needed me as their photographer’. That is itself is the biggest compliment I think anyone can ever tell a photographer. I officially didn’t meet Hayley until her bridal session a few weeks before her wedding! However, I felt like I knew her my whole life & couldn’t wait for the wedding after her bridal session!

During her bridal session, we were talking about her wedding venue that she worked at & come to find out that it was a famous house from the ’70s because of its history! Me being the person I am & loving crime stories/shows I had to learn more about this house. Well, it was Cullen Davis house – he is famous for 2 murders & other crimes that he was completely acquitted for. I found this so interesting & honestly just wanted to explore the whole house. Stonegate mansion has since turned into one of the coolest/beautiful venues I have ever seen. There are so many amazing places for portraits & the ceremony/reception hall lighting is everything to me. So much natural light beams through the floor to ceiling windows.

Hayley & Ryan’s wedding was one for the books. Her attention to detail really killed the game. From her floral centerpieces to her wedding dress. Their day was filled with so much love to last a lifetime. I have never seen such a full ceremony/reception, I don’t think there was an empty chair in sight.  Hayley really wanted to have a clean style with the bridal party so the bridesmaids wore black & the men wore all black tuxes, can you say ELEGANT. That’s exactly how I would describe their whole day, elegant. Their reception was popping all night & no one wanted to leave at the end of the wedding. That is what I call a wedding for the books! Congratulations, again you two! I hope you two are enjoying married life to its fullest!

Do ever meet someone & immediately say, yeah we are going to become great friends.. not good BUT GREAT. Yeah, that’s how I felt when I first met Whitney & Ben. When we first started talking about meeting for their consultation I suggested that we met at a Starbucks & Whitney was like uhhh do you mind if we go for ice cream instead… I stared at that email for a good 5 minutes & said ‘yeah I can already tell we are going to get along’. The night of the meeting came & I got there early as I do & I saw them pull up & I saw Whitney turn to Ben & she said ‘i think that’s her, what do we do’. Their consultation was just talking about how these two met, their love story & eating ice cream. We literally barely talked about packages or details. I got an email from Whitney not even 10 minutes after we left stating they wanted to book me.

Whitney & Ben met online when Whitney sliiiiiidd into Ben’s DM like a BOSS. Ben then took her out to Olive Garden for their first date & I mean who doesn’t love Olive Garden. Then the rest is basically history. When I asked Whitney when she knew she was going to marry Ben she said Pretty early on in our relationship. He just always took care of me and everything he did has so much love behind it.’ Cue tears. When I asked Ben when he knew he was going to marry Whitney he said ‘It was when I first told her I loved her during a weekend trip to San Antonio while we were eating at a restaurant on the river walk. She had already said I love you a couple of months before and I knew if she was as patient, considerate, and able to put up with my shit to that point she had to be the one.” CUE MORE TEARS.  These two are so in love & I am so excited to be celebrating with them come February of 2020!

Congrulations you two – This year is going to fly by then it will be your turn to become Mr & Mrs. I am so grateful that you two have chosen me to be on this journey with you!

XOXO – Hannah
