Milestone Photography - Wedding | by Amarillo Newborn & Family Milestone Photographer, Jessi Norvell

July 31, 2015  •  4 Comments

Despite preparing for the move North up by Amarillo, I photographed a beautiful wedding this past weekend at Willow Creek Chapel in Abilene Texas, and I realized that I love that I am a part of this step in their lives.  I already know that when this couple starts having babies of their own, they will come to me.  And I fully appreciate what it means to be a lifelong photographer for families.  In fact, that is what is pushing me toward Milestone Photography, mixed in with my precious newborns that I photograph.  I love my babies... don't get me wrong!  But when I see a photograph like this one below, it makes my heart sing!  (Her father is just to her left in the coral shirt, and his father is just to his right in the blue plaid shirt.  It doesn't get any better than this entire scene with the bird seed being thrown - capturing real delight at this major milestone in their families' lives!)

And while I love capturing sweet smiling faces, and gorgeous bridal portraits... I have to admit, I have a soft spot for beautiful artful painted images like this -

No matter what your style, I believe it is very important to capture the milestones. They slip away too fast!  At the end of your wedding day, you're left with two things - each other and your photos!  It's important to have a professional capture your day the way you envisioned it.  Before you know it, you have moved on to your other life goals and for many of my amazing clients, that becomes a baby on the way.  And those days of having a glorious round belly fly by and before you know it, you may forget what it was like to look longingly at your beautiful belly/baby-to-be.  The newborn days then come and go with very few memories because of sheer exhaustion of delivery and then sleepless days and nights.  Look back at the earliest photos of any season of life, and you know how valuable those sweet moments were!  Then, as each year flies by, and your relationship grows, your baby changes year by year, birthdays pass.... graduations occur.  Before you know it, your children will be starting the family cycle themselves with their own engagement!  Memories are too important.  Milestones are TOO important!

Thank you, Alisha! I loved doing a destination wedding. Everyone flying in and excited... Abilene being in the middle of the state is not your traditional destination location, but I thought it turned out beautifully!
