Two of the sweetest people I have ever met got married and I was the lucky photographer they hired to capture their memories! When Emily contacted me about shooting her wedding we had never met. When I met with her and Brian at The Alpha I knew that our personalities matched and that this was going to be so much fun. We had a great meeting and even realized we have a lot of mutual friends and a lot of things in common. We became friends on social media, attended some of the same weddings, showers, and even a steak fry together. I am so happy that not only did I gain new clients, I gained new friends who are just good people. (Bonus: their families are awesome, too)
From that very first night we met at the Alpha I noticed how they treated each other. Emily and Brian are truly in love and it is such a beautiful thing. He went along with all our crazy ideas during their engagement shoot and she kept up with his killer dance moves at Sean and Jaime's wedding. Their wedding was gorgeous, heartfelt, fun, and full of love- it was perfect. Some of my favorite moments were her father seeing her in her dress for the first time, taking photos of the bridal party at their house and shooting around all their solo cups and bottles, watching Brian carry Emily through their front door, all the craziness during the bridal party/bride and groom photos, and watching all their friends and family watch them dance for the first time as husband and wife. A lot of times I find myself tearing up behind my lens at weddings and this one was definitely one of those times. Here are a few of my favorites...
We ran into another fun bridal party!
Looking good Emily!
So are you Brian!
The bridesmaids had an idea for a photo...
There are honestly SO many dancing photos from the reception, that I am going to save them as surprises for Emily and Brian.
From the bottom of my heart, I am so thankful for the opportunity to shoot this beautiful wedding and for getting to know you both. Cheers to years of happiness, memories, and adventures!
