Let me preface this post with the disclaimer that I am in no way, shape or form cut out to be a wedding photographer and now, more than ever, do I truly admire and appreciate even more what those folks are able to accomplish weekend after weekend. Don’t get me wrong, portrait photography has its own challenges and I truly believe that we’ve all got our perfect fit in there somewhere… I just know that, without a doubt, my fit & passion (at least for this season in my life) remains right where it is.
With that said, I could not have been more honored that my brother-in-law Cody and now (wahoo!! it’s official!!) sister-in-law Heather allowed me (and my camera) to play such a special part in their day… and that I was able to document just a small part of the beauty and love that made up their nuptials. I am also beyond thankful and grateful that my photographer friend, Allyson, was there to take the lead as wedding photographer and truly capture their wedding the way it deserved to be photographed. Allyson was wonderful to work with and I am so pleased and excited with all that she was able to photograph for them.
In the meantime, I couldn’t help but share just a few from my viewpoint of the day… mostly details and “side-shooter views”, but as I work hard to finalize some images for my brother-in-law and his new bride, I thought they might enjoy a quick sneak peek of how their day was documented… at least from this girl’s lens.
Cody and Heather, congratulations again on an absolutely beautiful day… I could not be more happy or blessed to call you both family and cannot wait to see what God has in store for you and your marriage in the years ahead!
Next up… back to our regularly scheduled programming and sneak peeks of a beautiful newborn baby boy!
The handsome ringbearer… I could not wait to see my (almost!) 4 year old in a tux… what a sight! He took great pride in his job of escorting the beautiful flower girl down the aisle!
MY handsome fellas… love these boys so much!!
The handsome groom…
… and his beautiful bride! They opted to do a “first glance” and see each other before the ceremony to document those moments properly on film… such a smart idea!!
