Stephanie and Joshua | Lake Fort Smith | Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Hi Guys,

On May 8th,  Janie and I had the pleasure of capturing Stephanie and Joshua’s Wedding story at Lake Fort Smith state park in Chester, Arkansas.   You may know Stephanie and Joshua from winning our best engagement portrait 2015 contest.  They are a stunning couple and two genuine people who i have enjoyed getting to know.  I’ll hold you to a trip on the lake Joshua!  I would first like to thank Joshua for serving our Country for so many years.  It’s because of people like you that i get to do what i do and i’m very thankful for that.   Stephanie and Joshua’s Wedding day was filled with a mix of Cloudy and Sunny skies giving us so much dynamic to work with.  Checkout our favorites and shoot us a call if you’d like us to tell your Wedding Story….
