Emily and Johnny and I got connected through mutual friends, David and Holly, who’s wedding I photographed two Decembers ago.  Last night these two came to the studio and we watched their warm winter wedding slideshow for the first time.  At the end of the night, I felt the same way that I did about them on the wedding day.  That they are beautifully certain about what they like and who they are, and also that they always leave me happy and wanting more of them.

Emily’s favorite wedding photos are the classics- Princess Grace, Jackie Kennedy, any large semi-formal, but wierdly informal family photo from over 60 years ago.  We connected on our love for nostalgia and the elements of classic style.  Johnny admitted that he had a thing for the look of lights in the distance- out of focus and dreamy.  Hey, me too Johnny.  And, happily, beneath these surface compatibilities, we also connected on what we held most dear.

To start…Emily dealt with her leaning cake with a refreshingly casual attitude.

Friends, Hello, and Happy New Year!

I am excited to share another wedding after a long break from the blog over the crazy-busy holidays!

Staci and Robert.  Let me share a few of my favorite impressions of these two.  During our engagement session, they cracked me up.  I specifically remember Robert disarming the awkwardness of getting started with his sense of humor.  Another thing that instantly won me over about Robert was that he said he lives in two uniforms- a suit and tie for his real estate job, and cowboy boots for the rest of his life.  Staci is a beauty backed up with incredible intelligence and accomplishment.  She is actually interviewing for her first position as a medical doctor this week.

One of my favorite aspects of the day was that the beautiful and well known church that they were married in,  Redemptorist Catholic Church, was built by Robert’s grandfather.  We took a few minutes to do some cool portraits integrating the beauty of the architecture.  In general, being at this wedding, it was so evident how important family is to these people.  It just had an overall sense of warmth, humor, and hospitality.  Thank you guys for welcoming me.  Looking forward to seeing you next week!
