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!
