Neal & Samantha first met while they were both on the worship team at a church in Lexington, Kentucky. She sang in the band while Neal played the piano/keyboards. They became really great friends but soon realized that the connection between them was something very special. Neal knew that Samantha was the girl of his dreams, blond and beautiful. They both love the outdoors, being adventurous, and both have a strong heart for God. Neal proposed to Samantha at the gorgeous Linville Falls in North Carolina with the ring that Sam had always dreamt of having.
We were honored when they asked us to photograph their wedding at The Antler in Neal’s hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi. Both of us had never been to Mississippi before so we were excited to branch out and see another state and shoot a destination wedding. The Antler was a really neat wedding venue located out in the countryside and surrounded by trees and a lake on the property. The reception hall was full of rustic but elegant charm.
We are really looking forward to shooting another session with them at Auxier Ridge in the Red River Gorge. This location is very special to them and is carved into Neal’s ring that you will see below. On the other side of his ring is what “I Love You” looks like as a sound wave. Very fitting for them since they are both musicians. We had a blast going down to Tupelo, Mississippi and being a part of their wedding. We wish them many years of love, adventure and happiness.
