Mr. & Mrs. Duke {Little Rock Wedding Photographer}

Yep, I'm just going to say it. I love weddings.
I love newborns too...but there is something very special about capturing the emotion of one of the "biggest days of your life."
I love all the little details and special glances....along with the surprise, suspense, and emotion of the entire day.
It is truly unique and wonderful.

Now, if there was a single word to sum up Steven & Emily's Wedding Day, it would be "special."
I think the reason it was so special was because everything revolved around the idea of "family." Their families were so loving and supportive of this marriage, that it just overflowed into appreciation for each person that was there on that special day!
Plus, I think the bride and the groom are pretty special people too....but I may be a little biased. :)

So, without further a due....may I introduce to you, Mr. and Mrs. Duke! 

 Yea! Now they're a beautiful family of FOUR!!

Emily is already keeping a close eye on her new groom! :)
Ok, brace yourself....because this might be the most fantastic thing you've ever seen. I know it was for me. I just wish I had a video to accompany these pictures.

Have you ever seen a 7 year old do the entire Thriller Dance....on the dance floor....by himself...all because of his deep rooted love for M.J? And {as if that wasn't amazing enough} he taught HIMSELF the dance!
Truly a boy after my own heart.


See what I mean? Totally sold out to the dance floor. Love it.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Duke!
I wish you all the best as a couple, and as parents to two of the sweetest 7 & 8 year old kiddos in Little Rock!

These are amazing pictures, no way could I pick the best, they are all good. I love My Brady Boys dance moves, I should be so limber. Everyone looks spectacular, Maisy looks too grown up for me though. Emily and Steven, the best looking couple ever, thanks for letting us be a part of one of the most exciting days of your life!!!!
