Driving down Highway 25 into Sixmile, the light was shining just right. The glow was spectacular. The country was showing out for us. Carly and I were reliving some of the best farm memories from growing up. Carly + Nick were engaged and it was time to celebrate their love in a special way!
When I pitched the idea of shooting at our Big Daddy’s old land to my cousin, she was ecstatic! I’d wanted to shoot there for years, but it’s not close, and the land has long since been sold. Luckily the owners were happy to oblige! We walked around the old fishing pond, past the old metal boat and hay barn into the pasture, shooting all along the way. Childhood memories of fishing, feeding cows, and riding in an old pickup truck up and down that land came flooding back. We laughed, sweated, and somehow held back the tears.
Carly, you deserve all the happiness. You deserve your prince charming. I’m so glad you found him. Nick, keep treating Carly like a princess. She deserves it. I know you understand how hard and well she loves and you will give her the world. It was an honor to document such a sweet time in your lives. Here are some of my favorites:
Love + Blessings,
