Heather || Bridals

March 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last fall, just a few short weeks before Heather and Brian's wedding, Heather and her mom, step mom, and I all gathered together to photograph Heather's bridal portraits.  It was a perfect day outside and the light was simply stunning.  We met at Triple R Ranch (which is beautiful by the way) and after some team bonding trying to get Heather's dress laced up ;), we took her outside and began shooting.  

Heather, you're absolutely beautiful!  Grateful you've become my friend through all of this and I have come to believe what Brian told me months ago is true: "You'll never meet a more pure-hearted person than Heather."  I agree.

Part II - The Reception

Heather and Brian || Married Part I

Friends...I cannot hardly tell you how much I just love these two people - 

I've known Brian since I was a kid, literally ...and I fell in love with Heather the first time I met her. It's such an honor to be a part of a milestone like marriage.  I'd already had the privilege of photographing them with their sweet little one Lincoln (who's just perfect btw)...and then to be able to document their wedding day was truly a joy for me.  I cannot wait to see where this marvelous life takes you both! 

I'm so excited to present their wedding day, Part I:


Susie and Shanup || Reception

Typically, when I do a sneak peak, I only post a handful of images from an event or session...


I have been DYING to dig into the images from this reception I photographed a few weekends ago.  Once I started working through them, I couldn't stop.  There's still a bit more to go, but for now, here's a large preview of Susie and Shanup's reception.  

Oh...and FYI:  Susie and Shanup, you guys are the best! Way to rock out a wedding reception in the midst of an ice storm ;)

It's official...today Carrie Gilliam Photography, LLC is ONE!  

I started my journey with photography over 6 years ago, but never had the nerve to declare as a business until 2015.  And boy and I glad I did!  What a blessing it's been to meet so many amazing people and to documents special moments in their lives.  The business side can be hard ::wink wink:: but totally worth it.
