A Rustic Fall Wedding for Charlene + Jagger


My sweet friend and roommate from college married the love of her life this fall! Charlene and Jagger’s love story started back in 2018 after the two connected on a dating app. A year later after their relationship grew deeper, Jagger carved his and Charlene’s initials into a tree as a symbol of his promise of forever to her. On October 17, 2021, Jagger got down on one knee and asked Charlene to marry him in front of that tree.

Nearly a year later on October 15, 2022, Jagger and Charlene shared their first look on their wedding day at that very same spot. These types of stories are the stories I live for and visually capturing that means everything to me! It is so special.

Charlene and Jagger, thank you so much for the honor of photographing your wedding. I love seeing my friend so happy and the way you treat her, Jagger, is more than I could ask for! I’m so excited to watch you continue to grow as a couple and I can’t wait to see these printed in your home! Congratulations!

“I want to especially thank Kaitlyn for not only being a wonderful photographer, but also a wonderful friend. I had the absolute BEST day with her. Kaitlyn brought me so much peace and comfort on a huge day for me. I can’t thank her enough. I absolutely love her and her work – she is truly an artist.”

– Charlene Hill
