Jacob and Megan // Married!

As they moved their paintbrushes in synchronization the sun shone through the stained glass, creating a colorful glow on the church below. I was not surprised that Jacob and Megan painted a painting during their wedding ceremony. Some couples do sand designs, others stick to a unity candle. But Megan and Jake aren’t like most couples. They have two of the most creative, kind souls. That’s one reason why they’re so perfect together. Since their first date they’ve been inseparable. And I was fortunate enough to be there on their wedding day to capture all the beautiful love that this family shares.

I’m obsessed with their custom designed wedding rings. 

Jake really wanted Megan to wear a blusher (for those of you who don’t know… that’s the veil that you wear over your face while walking down the aisle!). So we took the photo above on the right with him in mind. I just love how romantic and ethereal it turned out.

I used the image above as their Facebook teaser. I love The Cheney Place by the way… 

Jake and his groomsmen surprised everyone with a performance to Another One Bites the Dust…

If Jake and Megan receive comments on this post from at least 30 different people they’ll get a free 8×10 of their choice!
Thanks for sharing your day with me, guys.
I’ll be in touch soon (:

- Shannon

Payton & Grace // They’re One!

I was SO excited to be able to get these adorable twinners in front of my camera again. In honor of their first birthday coming up, we decided to do a cake smash! Mmmm

But first, a few non-frosting-covered photos…

I used the photo above on the right as Payton’s Facebook teaser.

“Here sister, you have a little something on your face.”

And I used the photo above on the right for Grace’s Facebook teaser.

ughh they melt my heart.

Aaron&Alex // The Proposal

I remember when Alex first told me she thought Aaron was cute. It was her birthday and I encouraged her to go over and talk to him.
Before the night was over it was clear the two cuties were both into each other.

On the eve of Christmas eve my friends got engaged! Aaron had planned out this beautiful proposal for Alex and I got to hide in the crowd to capture it. I am SO honored to have been able to be there for such an amazing moment in their lives. I can’t wait to watch as their love continues to grow. Love you guys!

Taking a quick selfie before he pops the question.

Love the one above:) 

I posted the top right photo as a Facebook teaser.

The picture on the right… now that right there folks is called pure happiness.
I posted the photo on the left on my instagram: ShannonTomasik

After the proposal we all got hot chocolate and caught up a bit.
Anyway, I’m so so so happy for you two and thanks for letting me be a part of this moment Aaron.

Stay tuned for their engagement pics next year;)

Tazeea // Senior

We only ended up going with one outfit for this senior session. But I didn’t mind! It gave me more time to focus on the photos and less on which outfit goes with which location. Tazeea was such a natural in front of the camera too. I barely had to give her any direction!

I used that last image as her Facebook teaser. What a beauty! I had so much fun with you guys Tazeea, I can’t wait for you to see all the photos. I’ll be in touch soon!
