WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN 2014 / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney


When one wedding season wraps up, we can't help but feel a mixture of emotions. We are one part overwhelmingly thankful to have captured so many incredible moments with wonderful couples & their families, and one part sad that our Saturdays will no longer be filled with heartfelt celebrations of love! Each year we are lucky to spend time with couples who cannot wait to become husband and wife, and it is SUCH a breath of fresh air to feel the energy and passion they pour into their wedding day.

2014 weddings continued to blow us away over and over again! Pulling together some of our favorites was no easy task and probably not for the reason you might guess, but because we become so connected to our couples that we are emotionally invested in their moments and, as a result, their images have deep roots in our hearts. So, from our hearts to yours, here is a collection of photographs from this past year that make us feel. After all, wedding days aren't just about pretty pictures and details. They're about genuine emotion and moments that only happen once – the gathering of family and friends and all the special hugs & smiles shared together on an especially beautiful day!!

To each of the couples who invited us into their lives to be a part of your most special days, thank you from the very bottom of our hearts! You are the reason we love what we do!! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch
