Hi there! I'm Caiti and I am a portrait photographer living in Disputanta, Virginia. I am a music loving, doughtnut eating, coffee drinking, mama of 2. This is the place where you can come to see my latest work with my beautiful clients and learn more about me, my husband, and our sweet babies. Take a look around and enjoy!
It seems like just the other day we were begging for spring weather to arrive. This weekend felt like the middle of summer! How did this happen? The crazy heat didn’t stop us from having the most amazing day on Saturday, though! Sydney & Tyler got married right in her parents backyard and it couldn’t have been any more perfect.
Sydney and Tyler were described by multiple people as being absolutely made for each other. Both of them are extremely caring and giving. They are kind, fun, and love their people with every part of them. Sydney’s brother said that they are basically the same person! All day long, Sydney’s nephews would run up to her and give her hugs & kisses. She would stop what she was doing to love on them because that’s the type of person she is!
During Brittany’s toast, she talked about the first time Sydney and Tyler ever hung out. It had taken Sydney awhile to agree to go out on a date with him but she didn’t want to go alone (you know, in case he was weird, duh), so she asked him to drive some of her girlfriends to a wine festival and back. Can you imagine?! And he happily said yes because he just wanted to be with Sydney!! That was their first date! Sydney should have asked HIM to marry HER right then and there.
This wedding day couldn’t have been any better. Every part of the day was filled with joy! That may sound cheesy unless you were there and then you know I’m right! My face literally hurt at the end of the night because I was smiling and laughing all day. Everyone had a fun morning hanging out and getting ready but the real fun began when the first look happened.
Sydney and Tyler were both just ready to see each other. They walked out into the grass, under the shade of a big tree…Tyler turned around and his face lit up!! His mouth dropped open and we could all hear him say “WOW!” Sydney just laughed! And then, Tyler pulled her in and just hugged her. I love those moments! It was over 90 degrees outside and they just wanted to hold on to each other!
The rest of day just kept getting better and better! The ceremony, the reception, the people, the dancing – everything was amazing! I said on Instagram that the entire day felt like a “breath of fresh air”, and it really did. We didn’t want the night to end and I know we weren’t the only ones.
Sydney and Tyler are such wonderful people and we truly loved being with them on such an important day!! We love these two! There are lots of people that love them and support them and are so overjoyed for this next chapter in their lives.
