Mike and Stacy

These two had a perfect day for their outdoor wedding. Everything about the wedding was bright and sunny. From the flowers that Stacy picked for the bouquets, to the candy tables keeping guests sugar’d out!

I love shooting outdoor ceremonies, and this one was no exception. A lesson to anyone wanting some really great photos…. be flexible enough to allow for a short photo session right around sunset. Most summer days it is fairly late and most of the formal reception activities are over. This is the BEST time to get some really dramatic photos due to the light. Michael and Stacy were willing to step away from the crowd, and I think they will be happy they did!

Marc and Katherine
Marc and Katherine make quite the classy couple. I knew from our engagement shoot back in the day that they were going to have a lot of fun on their wedding day and they didn't disappoint.

Lance & Jennie
Lance is in the Army and is currently stationed in Albuquerque. Jennie had the fun task of planning her wedding in her home state, while residing 2 time zones away. Jennie was a stunning bride and I could tell she really was excited about the day. She laughed a lot, and had a huge smile the whole day. While Lance may not have looked as excited, I understand he IS in the military and I can't expect him to show too much emotion. Had the weather been a little warmer, the ceremony would have been outside, but sometimes these things do not work out the way you would expect! Best of luck to both of you! ...

Courtney and Matt
Everybody should go to a wedding where the bride's grandfather gets up and leads a quartet.  It was so good to see all of the family gather around and sing songs that they have apparently been singing for year.  I could hear a lot of history in the songs, and it just made me wish I was a part of it!  Another way history was brought in was via all of the wedding dresses from the parents and grandparents.  There was a room with about 5 dresses set up, along with a wedding album or portrait from the day.  Also, Courtney made sure she had time to get a few throws in with her dad; something you don't see at every wedding. The weather was outsta ...
