Mitchell + Nicole | A Surprise Wedding!

Guys. IT’S A SURPRISE WEDDING!

When Nicole emailed me to ask if I would be up for photographing her and Mitchell’s surprise wedding, I ran around our house cheering. I couldn’t be more excited for them and I was so happy when they told me their plan to invite their family to their “engagement party” and then bust out the surprise that this was actually their wedding! Nicole, Mitchell, her sisters and his sister all planned this out and none of their family was the wiser, it was so much fun 🙂

Nicole is one of my sorority sisters and I just love how her and Mitchell have grown together, their love is deeply ingrained in their love of family and you could see this all throughout their wedding day. This was by far one of the funnest times I’ve had with my job because I got to be a cohort in their plans.  Thank you so much for having me!

    Julie-words cannot express how happy we are that you were able to be there to share and experience our day with us. The photos are more than we ever could have imagined and we will cherish them forever. Our family was thrilled with their pictures that they received for Christmas, especially those of Mitchell’s grandpa. You are amazing and this will definitely not be the last thing you shoot for our family 🙂 love you!!!
