I can not even begin to tell you how grateful I was to have been able to photograph this wedding. When I found out I was pregnant and I was due in late July, I was a little nervous, no very nervous, that I would miss out on the Babin’s Mammoth wedding. Thankfully, Kai was born 2 weeks before their date. HA! A whole 2 weeks! What was I thinking taking this wedding. I must have been crazy! Let me tell you, I am so glad I did. Travis and Megan’s sweet ceremony was just what I needed to remember why I am a photographer since I was all caught up in being a new Mama.
Megan and Travis were sweet enough to accommodate for Kai and my Husband so they could come with me to Mammoth. So we packed up our CRV with a newborn and headed to a magical location. The drive and the time away from our cramped, baby filled apartment was just what we needed. As nice as it was to have family and friends visiting Kai it was nice to breathe, take in some fresh air and see what we were like as a family of three. And thats what this wedding was, a breath of fresh air. Not only did our family need to be with each other, but my photo brain needed to be inspired and taken to a wedding where pinterest wasn’t the founder. Don’t get me wrong I love pinterest, its usually my go to when I need some inspiration. However, I’ve seen a lot of repeats lately. This wedding was planned because it meant something to them. From baseball details to quotes from Megan’s students, everything had a purpose. I think every one of their guests appreciated the special cookies that were made by Travis’ Mom. I know I did:)
The ceremony was held at their favorite lake, while the reception and where we all stayed was at Convict Lakes Resort.
You are completely surrounded by mountains, deer, and a whole lot of beauty. The setting however, was not as beautiful as this family being united. You could feel the excitement in the guests and of course in Megan and Travis. Two of the sweetest people got married that day and I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in this world together.
Morgan, Kai, and I love you both and wish you nothing but the best.
