It all started in July of 2017 when this adorable couple invited me to capture their cuteness with engagement photos and then an intimate family wedding ceremony in St. Pete. From there, the Bailies announced that a new addition to their family would be arriving in October of 2018 so I had the pleasure of setting up a photoshoot before they welcomed Baby Bailie into the world. Joanna Kristine arrived and just a few weeks later, we were all off to Ireland for a wedding reception over a year in the making! 30+ family members and friends of the Bailies took over the Belle Isle Castle in Lisbellaw, Northern Ireland. To say it was the trip of a lifetime would be an understatement! We had a portrait session with the happy couple, a family photo shoot with Baby Joanna by the fireplace, a fun filled evening with a murder mystery masquerade ball and a wedding reception the following night that most people can only dream of! Mother Nature didn’t exactly want to cooperative on wedding day but that didn’t stop the Bailies from heading outside, ditching their umbrellas and embracing the pouring rain…because they were in front of their castle! What an amazing couple of days to say the least!
From engagement photos to wedding day to now getting ready to meet Baby Bailie - I can’t say enough about how excited I am to have been asked to capture it all! These two are just the cutest! I can’t wait for Baby Joanna’s first photo shoot at home…and her second in Ireland in December!
