I'm not sure how 2014 flew by so fast! What a year...what great clients and so many fun wedding sessions!
Here is a peek of my favorite images and a recap from my 2014 weddings!
Travis & Michelle : This image takes my breath away.. the veil blowing in the wind and in the background...the doors of the lovely Plummer are so romantic! These two were so easy-going, fun and had a very lively wedding party.. it made for a memorable and fun session. Best Wishes for you Both!
Brent & Leah : Who doesn't love an amazing location! - Golf courses are probably a favorite place for receptions and they always allow for some romantic pictures to be taken. Arranging for the use of a golf cart and showing off my mad driving skills is always enjoyable and it's fun to have a chance to visit with just the bride and groom alone, it's probably the only change so far that day to be alone ( less the photographer in their face always taking pictures, lol! ) but they were relaxed and gracious and had the chance to really be able to be in the moment.. it allowed for many romantic images.
Jon & Michelle :
A romantic and rustic-hunting themed wedding, it takes a special bride to allow her soon to be husband, to wear camo on their special day... I think that Jon knows he's a lucky man - the smile says it all! We were so blessed with amazing weather, tower shade trees and many smiles that day. Tip for future sessions - when shooting under a walnut tree in the late summer/early fall - Watch for falling Walnuts!
Alex & Francoise : When asked to shoot a winery wedding - You don't need to ask me twice! A warm, sunny, spring day made this a true joy to be out amongnst the vines. A lovely couple - joining hands and joining their families! You could feel the love in the air and see it in their expressions all day long. These two are so appreciative of each other and are such an inspiration to their friends and family.
Kurt & Kristi: There is more about this lovely winter wedding in an early blog post (see below). Funny story: I was contacted by Kristi and never new that she was marrying my cousin, I didn't ask his last name when we talked.. (I hadn't seen Kurt in about 10 years), so as I sat at their kitchen table discussing wedding details - it didn't dawn on me until a few minutes into our conversation that this handsome man, was actually my cousin! Once we figured out that we were related ( he might have know it was me, but was a perfect gentleman for not making me feel silly for not recognizing him..) it made for a good laugh! Regardless of how it started, it ending with a lovely day and me feeling truly blessed to capture their portraits.
I feel so blessed that this past year has been one of my best for weddings.. I will always limit how many I shoot in a year - they are consuming and I want everything to be perfect for my clients. I love getting to know them and providing them with amazing memories they will cherish forever.
