We tend to do quite a few “formal” weddings over here. Every photographer has his or her style and types of clients that style tends to attract. And by formal I mean large, intricately carved ballrooms with crystal chandeliers and beautiful ceremonies enshrined in religious tradition and meaning. We love formal! But we also love smaller, intimate events, in artsy or indie locations and filled with unique details. One of the best things about being a wedding photographer is experiencing just how different yet alike we all are. How each human experience is the same yet different. We all love, we suffer, we feel each moment between happiness and pain, anxiety and overwhelming joy…and we all do it in our own unique, one-of-a-kind way. There is not another you. All we can do is embrace our uniqueness and strive to become the best version of ourselves.
Well, that digressed quickly! Apparently I’m feeling introspective today. Bre and Elliott…OMG. So sweet. They love each other easily. Bre is the more outgoing one, brimming with fun energy. Elliott is more reserved, but has such warm eyes that you know he’s not quietly judging you. And when you get a big smile out of him, man is it heartwarming. I had such a wonderful time hanging with these two and their families and friends!
Who loves small wedding parties? (Raises both hands!!!)
So much meaning in a simple hand squeeze.
Bre your skin is literally flawless! Thanks for making my job so easy!
Mom and daughters.
Well that’s not a terrible gift! Steve honey…if you’re reading this take notes!
Their “first” first look was with Elliott’s wedding day present. Instead of Bre, this lovely scooter was standing, patiently waiting for a kiss!
And now for real…
This is one of those warm Elliott smiles…
A few shenanigans.
Greenery has been all the rage, but these bouquets had NONE! So different and fun! Beautifully designed by Festive Couture Floral.
Perfect little breeze for Bre.
Off to Third Degree Glass Factory which just so happens to be right down the street from our studio. Such a cool space!
The glass blowing demonstration was pretty mind blowing. And that hot, melted glass looks scary as hell. I’m totally going to sign up for a class.
Vincent Van Doughnut truck! Donuts are my fave!
It’s kind of tough to tell, but these dudes are not even kind of trying to catch this garter lol! It is not up in the air. The black garter is almost waist height and headed straight for the second guy from the left.
