Elegant Wyoming Wedding | Hailey + Gavyn


I held my breath a couple of weeks before this wedding. As COVID cases spiked in Texas, some states surrounding us were implementing travel bans and quarantining measures and I prayed daily that Wyoming would still let us in. Thankfully, everything worked out and we were able to hop on a plane and head to cooler weather to celebrate with Hailey + Gavyn!

When we arrived on Thursday, we got to shoot some beautiful engagements with some golden Wyoming sunset glow and get to know these two just a little bit more before their wedding on Saturday! I had met Hailey a few years back shooting her best friend’s wedding in Florida. So thankful and honored she remembered me and then hired me a few years later! She even got our baby girl the most precious outfits… ugh! Pullin’ at my heartstrings. 🙂

Hailey + Gavyn’s day was so incredibly beautiful and fun. Hailey had the most helpful bridesmaids who helped me move furniture around in the getting ready space and run little errands to make the day run smoothly. It is clear that these two are so loved and it was such an honor to be trusted with their day and to be the ones who had the privilege of capturing such special moments!

Enjoy reliving their wedding day through our eyes! Shout out to my crew (Lacey, Cody, and Zach) who traveled with me during a pandemic at 32 weeks pregnant and helped me work through an eight hour wedding day! Couldn’t have done it without y’all!

Meet Mr. & Mrs. Bates!
