It's FEEL GOOD FRIDAY! One of the best parts about being a wedding photographer is getting an inside glimpse into the stories and special traditions within families. This bride's grandmother, mother and sister all carried this beautifully embroidered handkerchief at their weddings. A special piece of family history, passing from women's hands to women's hands. And you wonder why I cry on the job... #suzannekarpphotography
I don't even know where to start with these two. If I could shoot their wedding over and over and over again I would be the happiest photographer ever. Their style, their vibe, their everything was simply magical. #suzannekarpphotography
Some extra guests made an appearance at Saturday’s wedding at @springhillevents. 🐄 How cute are they? 🐄And that view? 🙌 😱

It's MEMORY MONDAY and this sweet little scene right here goes all the way back to a week and a half ago! The thing is, there are little wedding moments I think about over and over, little scenes I re-live for weeks and months afterwards, that make me smile. When Alyssa and Javier snuggled up on this beautiful sofa from @encoreeventsrentals I wanted to keep them there for an hour, not only so I could take pictures that whole time, but because I secretly wanted to sip champagne and just hang out with them. 🥂 #suzannekarpphotography
There are little things that happen at weddings, small moments I notice, that give me big emotions. Like this moment right here - when the groom glances over at the bride as they walk hand in hand back up the aisle as husband and wife. He will look at her millions of times in their lives, but I always think that this look in this moment is extra special somehow. Like he's saying to her, "We did it." #suzannekarpphotography
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Princess! She had a fabulous time at her mom and dad's wedding but she was so tired and fell sound asleep as soon as they did their first dance! #suzannekarpphotography

Over the past 20 years I have met a lot of brides. This stunning beauty right here is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside. The fist word that comes to mind when thinking about @alyssaibarra93 is sweet. She has the kindest heart, the nicest demeanor and I wish she and @jvi83 lived next door to me so I could photograph them every single day. Oh, and wait till you meet their little dog Princess in my next post. Omg. #suzannekarpphotography
One of my favorite things about shooting weddings at Copain Winery are all of the big open spaces. I love sneaking the bride and groom out at sunset to capture some quiet images of the two of them, after the ceremony, after cocktail hour, after dinner when they're all relaxed and married and feeling fabulous. These two right here were amazing: classy, elegant, fun, interesting, brilliant and madly in love. Have I mentioned how much I love my job? #suzannekarpphotography
All week I will be featuring photos of Copain Winery, one of my favorite venues. My first official wedding of 2018 was at Copain on Saturday, which was a perfect way to kick off wedding season. The glow from the tasting room at twilight is always beautiful, not to mention the glow of the spectacular sunsets I've witnessed there. #suzannekarpphotography

Smells like we live in the middle of a giant blossom! Sormovila guests are in for a real treat!
I’m heading to Mexico today. And I’ve been in the airport for almost 5 hours. Just 4 more to go! Yeah. That’s right... a 9 hour layover. At least I have these beautiful images from Rachel & Nathaniel’s engagement session to keep me going! Oh and Mexico. Mexico is keeping me going too.
