Derrick & Meg | Amarillo Wedding Photographer

it seems like every story told about us…. is a “meant-to-be”

Derrick and Meg’s story was celebrated under the crisp summer air, with a gentle breeze blowing about  the leaves

and just as magnificently… Meg sat in her make up chair excitedly – smiling nonstop!

their friends and family surrounded her happily and filled the air with laughter the entire day

i had mentioned to Meg’s mom that no matter how detailed and intricate the wedding planning process had been, Meg always found time to meet me for lunch and gush her way through sentiments she held for her relationship. for her future husband. and for their life together.

i will always cherish and protect those moments

This beautiful day wasn’t so because of the details involved in every aspect of their wedding – but because it was an outward representation of the warm, cozy, quiet and breezy nature of the relationship they truly share and cultivate with each other.

bCarter000bCarter001Meg… you shine. brilliantly. and it makes me the happiest photographer in the world to see you smile so wonderfully with your heart on your wedding day!

bCarter002not to be left out, the babies joined in the wedding festivities

bCarter004bCarter003Derrick and Meg decided to meet before the ceremony. Meg stopped just before walking up to meet Derrick and fanned away tears.
