{one last time...gorgeousness!}

we photographed christa and mike's wedding back in august (see it here) and tonight i did their 'one last time' session. these session are so much fun! a great time for the bride to get their dress on again and get some great/fun pictures. everyone is relaxed and you can do things you couldn't do on your wedding day because you don't have to worry about staying clean or
rushing to the ceremony. i highly recommend it to every bride and/or couple.
anyway...tonight has to be one of my favorite sessions. i was a bit worried as i was heading to the session and it was pouring rain...but it turned out to be a beautiful evening with lots of sunshine. christa and mike are madly in love and it makes my heart smile.
he told her the entire session how beautiful she was and how much he loved her. *swoon!*

......and just look at her...she's stunning!! how amazing are her eyes!!!
christa and mike...i adore you guys!! i wish you both only the best in life!!
here's your ginormous sneak peek. there was no way i could narrow it down to a few.
i hope you love them!!






i love this next picture of christa. i'm pretty sure she was laughing at the cows licking mike :)


this man in camo even showed up for some pictures :)










ahhhh...the light was so beautiful!
