What Jade thought was just another day exploring the Washington wilderness with her long-distance boyfriend turned into one of the most defining days of her life. Kruze planned an epic proposal at the base of a waterfall and it was as beautiful of a moment as one could image.

In less than three years, I have found myself moving this business between three different markets…all around the country. In 2014, my husband and I left our hometown in Kansas to start a new adventure in Seattle. We quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, but I found myself working a full time job outside of photography. I used my weekends “off” to shoot weddings and photograph portrait sessions, which might sound crazy but it’s the #girlboss hustle. And now here I am: in California, settled and excited to see Ali Marie Photography grow.

Like most couples, Katie and John were surrounded by a bridal party full of friends but what was more unique was watching their individual families joyfully celebrate this new marriage together! There were so many family traditions that were incorporated into the wedding and everyone was so genuinely excited to be a part of the day.

So many moments during this wedding day reminded me why I love my job: the groom shedding a tear as he read a note from his bride, Crystal and Brett coming together to remember her father and also honoring their parents who were present, the ring bearers peering over shoulders and smiling giddily as they celebrated becoming a new family.

This Midwest wedding was absolutely beautiful! Mostly because of the sweet love that Lauren & Jesse share and, in part, to Lauren’s planning that truly made their day come to life. While getting ready for the wedding, both the bride and groom were so anxious to get to see one another and it totally shows in their first look!
