Tricia and Mike {by liz}

I have awesome clients. I know everyone says that, but I feel really lucky. People always ask me if I have bridezillas, but I truly don’t. I am proud to say that I don’t seem to attract that type of person. The kind of people who hire me are generally the same ones I would like to have a beer with later. Same goes for Tricia and Mike! I’m going to go more play by play commentary on this one and save you from my usual ramblings up front. Here we go…

I really, really love these shoes! Shocking. I know.

Beautifully intricate rings.

Just one more of the shoes…completely unnecessary but I can’t seem to help myself. Kind of like trying to walk by the shoe department at Nordstrom without stopping to look. Virtually impossible.

And here we go! I feel like getting into the dress is when it all starts. When the wedding day is REAL.

Bridesmaids looking on.

Pretty Tricia.

I double love this one. I want to go back to the Moonrise Hotel just to take a shot like this again!

And off to Epiphany of our Lord Church! Beautiful flowers by Lucky You.

Mike hanging with the guys with less than half an hour to go.

Mike, you nervous buddy? That tie feel a little tight? Nah…he’s ready!

This is what it’s all about. What a great moment.

Do you take this man to be your husband? Mmmmmmm…let me think for a sec.

Oh alright – I’ll take him!

They really did it! I think I see a “finally” face in there. How long have you two been together anyway?

Putting on bowling shoes at Epiphany’s very own bowling alley. The church has it’s own bowling alley. Does anyone else think that rocks?

The FOB and FOG. Lookin’ like the Blues Brothers. New favorite!

Walking away…

…went a little bit smoother than walking back.

I LOVE these. I know it’s not about me. But I do.

I mean, how could you not? The light was beautiful and these two are naturals.

Ummmm…with all of our horsing around, hugging, etc the poor little flower got smooshed. Oopsie.

And off to Rose of the Hill! Notice the multi-use pomander balls. They served as aisle decor at church and then made a second showing at the reception. Genius.

Toasts always make for good photos. It’s always nice to be truly photojournalistic and hang back while someone else makes people laugh. I am not a comedian.

Another fave.

Let’s dance!

I’m experimenting with a little bit more off camera lighting at receptions this year and I love it when it turns out like this. I don’t believe in traveling with a ton of gear that takes forever to set up. I don’t want to miss moments and emotions while I’m fiddling with all of my technical stuff. But at the reception I usually have some time during dinner to set up a few things. It’s not like people want photos of themselves eating, so it works out perfectly!

Ok, this one made me a little teary eyed when I edited it. I’m pretty sure I was blinking back a tear when I took it too.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Castellano!
