If you don’t like a lot of jibber-jabber on photo blogs, you might want to scroll down now, because I have to write some things about this wedding. I met Nate, the dashing groom, when he was about 10 years old. I feel like I’ve watched him transform from an energetic, curious kid, into a smart and grounded young man. Nate’s father, Dave, is a dear friend of mine. Dave’s wedding to his incredible wife, DeAnn, was the very first wedding I ever shot. I definitely have a special place in my heart for this family, so I was thrilled to be there for such a welcomed celebration. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect match for Nate than his beautiful new wife, Kaylee. Her kind and fun-loving spirit clearly add to the connection they share. I will now stop yammering, and let you enjoy some images from this really wonderful day. Many congratulations, Kaylee and Nate!
After another wonderful, wedding-packed weekend, I thought I’d spread a little love. Robin second shot for me during Rachel and Greg’s fabulous wedding day. We could probably start a joint photo biz called “The Snarky Sisters”. There’s a special comfort when you’ve worked with someone long enough to fully trust what they’re doing. On top of that, it’s even better when you know that they “get” you.
Exhibit A: One of the reasons I love Robin is that she does the BEST light-check dances!
Exhibit B: After 4 years, she still hasn’t given up the dream of snapping a “normal” photo of me. Keep on keepin’ on, Robin!
I say this all the time, and I’ll keep saying it until people tell me to stop (and then I’ll just say it a little bit longer still). I love second shooting at weddings. One of the reasons is that you get an opportunity to shoot so many different types and styles of events. I tend to shoot a lot of elegant, artsy, DIY, and rustic-type weddings. I could shoot those every day, y’all! My pal Robin Nathan typically books beautiful weddings that I refer to as “faaaaaancy”. I think on more than one occasion, I’ve said to her, “I’m pretty sure that centerpiece costs more than my car”. So, when I shoot for her and she shoots for me, we get to mix up our styles a bit. Yay! With all that said, here are some pics I took at one of Robin’s events, with the wonderful Julie and Mike.
