Jacque & Steve were married yesterday on the lawn of the Stevens Estate, under an overcast sky-perfect for pictures!
I think the hardest part of the day for Jacque was getting her makeup on. She was "antsy" and it was REALLY hard for her to sit still but it was worth it for the end result!
Love the dimple.
Love the color scheme- pink and brown.
The stairs at the Stevens Estate always make for a great picture!
The archway is always nice too!
A couple of weeks ago I had a couple who wanted me to photograph their rings. We came up with this pose. I like it because it's not only about the rings but the couple too.
Humor- the new trend it wedding cake toppers? This is the second one, in this vain, I've seen in three weeks. Very cute.
Jaquie and Steve had a photo booth brought in for their guests. They LOVED it!
. . . and it makes a great keepsake for the couple too.
Is the garter and bouquet toss making a come back? I haven't seen it in years and, again, this is the second one I've seen in three weeks.
Congratulations Jaquie and Steve. Your online album will be ready in a few days!
Photographing the wedding of Alyssa and Garrett was very special to me. Alyssa was my son's first grade teacher and HE LOVED HER! Really, what first grade little boy wouldn't love her-she's gorgeous.
Alyssa wore her sister's veil . . .
carried her grandmothers engagement ring in her bouquet . . .
and her husband wore her late grandfather's cuff links. I love how she incorporated her past with her future and included all the special people in her life that couldn't be here on her wedding day.
Here is Alyssa getting out of the town car at the church. This is one of my favorite images of the day.
It must be SO hard not seeing what is going on as everyone else makes their walk down the aisle. Here is Alyssa and her father sneaking a peak.
The flower girl going down the aisle was priceless! What I love most about this image is all the hands pointing her in the right direction!
At this point in her walk down the aisle she gave her flowers to one of the people in the pews!
There is nothing particular to say about this image other than the fact that I love it. I don't even know who this little girl is.
Here are Alyssa and Garrett. He was always kissing her shoulder, so this image may be set up but it's not that far fetched.
The best part of photographing this portrait of Alyssa was Garrett's reaction when, after some instruction from me, she NAILED the pose. He always saw it at the same time we did and and we all would yell, "yes, that's it!"
Alyssa and her sister, Stephanie. Beautiful.
Any one of Alyssa's students would have LOVED to have been at the reception, cupcakes . . .
. . . candy bar
I always try to get the parents in the background during the first dance.
Alyssa's dad sang 3 songs and really brought down the house!
The end of the last dance. She maintained this level of excitement the ENTIRE day!
I love this couple! Sara & Greg were so much fun to work with. He is a riot and the camera loves Sara. She has and elegance that is a photographers dream.
I love to photograph through an open door. It creates a "paparazzi" feeling. I also like it how frames the subject and directs your eye to her. Here is Sara leaving for the ceremony. She's just a little nervous 🙂
But her nerves quickly went away after she saw Greg. This is one of my favorite images of the day. Notice her bright pink shoes-LOVE IT!
The details were a very unique. I like this idea of rocks for place settings.
Buckets of taffy as gifts for the guests.
And each table number was a picture of Sara and Greg that Greg took at different locations that are special to them.
The cake topper needs no explanation.
The tent at dusk.
The definitely had a dancing crowd. It was a great party!

One of my favorite couples recently had twins! Congratulations Katherine & Nick-they are gorgeous and WOW, do they have personality!
After about an hour (maybe and hour and a half) we finally got them to relax. AHHHH. Maybe now we can take the binky out of Liam's mouth . . .
