I love getting ready pictures and all the details.  I cannot get enough…. I spend some time making sure that everything is documented…a bride will have her pictures in 20 or 30 years but she won’t have her shoes, and her jewelry or her flowers.  So in this blog post I have on purpose put in a lot of the detail pictures and the bride getting ready and her portraits.  Kayla gave me a lot of time to capture this part of the day.  I absolutely love all the bridal portraits…but without scheduling this time during the day it can feel rushed…so with all my potential brides I make sure to help them schedule this time in their day and let them know that in their getting ready location one source of natural light can really make all the difference!

So Kayla and Jim got married at White Hawk West Country Club.  For a wedding in October I was so surprised how cold and windy it was.  It made outdoor picture taking almost impossible.  Of course they were willing to go outside but my main focus of the day is that you don’t feel miserable!

Kayla was such a beautiful bride that it was hard for me to stop taking her bridal portraits…

 

My second shooter Chris Zibutis from Christopher Z Photography did an amazing job on the boys getting ready pictures and did so many great dramatic pictures using lights.  Couldn’t have asked for anything better!

We then were off for the first look….which I love doing by the way!  It really just gives the bride and groom just a few moments to take it all in!

Some more portraits and some group shots!  Their bridal party was a hoot!

These next two shots were taking by Chris being so amazing when we couldn’t go outside!Again Chris!Then off to a beautiful ceremony and an amazing reception!

Kyle and Sarah were married last October at Sand Creek Country Club and everything was beautiful.  Everywhere smiles were from ear to ear and just an excitement for the big day was finally here.  What a beautiful gathering of family and friends.  Of course it was cold….but everyone was willing to go outside for a bit and brave the weather and even ride around on the golf cart with the wind whipping in their faces.  I think this time I complained the most which is a first.  I didn’t like the wind on the golf cart so I might have screamed a little!  The bride and groom never made a peep!  The day went off without a hitch and the most relaxed wedding day ever!  I loved the colors that Sarah picked!  On a cold day they just made me smile!  Katrina and Stephanie were there to make it even a little bit more fun for me and as always Katrina takes beautiful pictures as my second shooter especially the first dance pictures…just beautiful!

 

We ventured outside for their first look and I think one of my favorites so far this year!

Then in for the ceremony and even that was filled with so many smiles and laughter!

Abbey was a dream to work with!  Her black hair and perfect skin made her so easy to photograph.  She is a Senior at Wheeler High School and we went to several places to get these beautiful images of her.  One of the places was in her back yard and  I completely fell in love!

Abbey wanted something different so we did something different on a couple of different images.  I love being creative like that!

I of course could not pick the images I wanted to share, it was too hard so I picked a lot! How could I leave them out?

 

I wanted to give a little sneak peek to Katie as I am working on her photos!  I know it can be so annoying waiting!

What a fun, cold, windy wedding day!  These two beautiful people got married at Sand Creek Country Club in October.  I just kept hoping that the rain would stop and the wind would die down and things would get a little warmer.  They never did!  These two braved the cold!  I love them for that!

Katie was such a calm, low key bride…she made the day so easy and relaxed.  Her details and her gorgeous dress made me a little jealous!  They were stunning.

Just an amazing day and I am so honored to have been there to capture it!
