Life has a wonderful way of bringing special people into your life – Diane and Colin are such a story for us. See if you can follow this…we first photographed a wedding back in April of 2013 of Leslie and Tim. They moved around after their wedding, but we did meet Leslie’s sister, Alyssa, who lives in Tallahassee. She then hired us for all of the best family milestones, including her revealing to her husband Randy that she was pregnant! Randy is Diane’s brother, and that’s how we got worked into the Grant Family. We photographed their whole big group for Christmas a couple of years ago and got to know everyone. You only wish you were in their family….they are all a joy, seriously. So when Diane got engaged, we were overjoyed to hear from her as they planned a Tallahassee wedding from afar in Kansas City. We did their engagement pictures over a year ago, and eagerly looked forward to the big day!
Our sweet friend Michelle was their wedding planner and I know she took such great care of them. Every detail was beautiful, personal, and flowed smoothly despite it not being a traditional day. We got to photograph our first Korean wedding ceremony, and just overall had so many special moments throughout the day with this entire group. Thank you, Diane and Colin, for bringing us into the fold and adding us to your family. We couldn’t love you more!
Enjoy this big sneak peek – I can’t think of a better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve and ring in 2020!

Her veil was long and the wind was blowing! So there are a bunch of fun bridal pics!
Alyssa and Leslie’s daughters. Love these so much!
Do you know what I love the most about this image? NO ONE is holding their phone up to their face! 🙂
Diane’s brother Randy officiated their ceremony. I love how personal it was because of that:
Ryan always follows the couple out after the ceremony. He said Diane’s veil was catching on something so he reached down to grab it, and while he held onto it he managed to hold the camera up to his face. Pure magic!
As a lover of skeleton keys, I loved this escort card display extra much!
At the end of the Korean ceremony, all of the family members come up as a couple and throw either chestnuts or jujubes into the cloth that the couple is holding up. However many pieces land in the cloth is how many children they will have!
I love Diane’s face as she holds up 7 fingers!
Madison was not about to be left out of the fun!
The rain held out for us all day, but then gave us some fun for a nighttime portrait:
Oh how I love these ladies!
Thanks you guys!
