Shelly and Andrew | The Bluffs

I’ve had the pleasure of documenting this beautiful family’s journey for the past two years. When Shelly first got in touch she was looking for a photographer that could provide engagement, maternity, newborn, and wedding photos. Getting to be on that journey and see sweet Oaklynn come into the world and how instantly amazing of parents Shelly and Andrew became was such a joy.  The wedding day celebrated the new family perfectly. Here are a few favorite moments from that day.

Congrats Andrew and Shelly!
