Wedding

A Winter Walk

Back in Minneapolis a few weeks ago we had the chance to get together with some of our favorite players in the Wedding game. We kept it pretty loose and luckily all the details just fell into place how refreshing! 

With the main goal being spring we pulled a few dresses from the incomparable ladies at The White Room MPLS and shot three looks. This was actually the last dress, we ventured out of Jen's studio into the empty space down the hall and just decided to let the beauty of the white winter scene shine through.

#matRICKmony (part one)

We had so much fun reliving this day. From the moment we met up with Nick for a cut and a shave to the last song of the night this wedding was 100% full. Full of love, family, friends, cuteness, tears, laughter, and #rick. We had so many favorites we had to split it into two parts...

Part two... they say I do and everyone dances all night long.... coming soon!

#RICK (the night before)

I don't even know how to put into words what a perfect weekend we had shooting Robin & Nick's wedding. Starting at moto i for an Open Mic style rehearsal dinner, Robin and Nick were regaled by family and friends as they preformed a selection of songs for the couple, with the couple and about the couple and so on. We had just enough fun that some of us were still bright eyed and bushy tailed for their nuptials the following morning. 

Hurricane AmanDrew

If rain on your wedding day is a good omen I can only imagine the good vibes heading towards Drew and Amanda as they embark on their life as a married couple. What started out as a bought of bad weather turned into Tropical Storm Hermine, I've never seen two people take anything in such an easy even keel stride. Both were too excited to let a little rain, wind, lighting and such get in the way of their nuptials. 

They gathered together with friends and family at the Brooklyn Arts Center in Wilmington, North Carolina. Luckily, the venue hosted the entire event from ceremony to the dance and we didn't have to venture out into the storm...

Drew and Amanda's Beachside Rehearsal

Our adventure started last week when Garrett was biking in his last race of the season. On the second to last lap I lost track of him assuming I just missed him, but the last lap finished and still no Garrett. A trip to the ER and two cracked ribs later he was down for the count.

A week of rest and relaxing came to a close and we packed all the gear, loaded it onto my back, and made our way to North Carolina. I'm considering myself lucky that he was feeling up to the trip because, you know, we're a team... 

We met up with Drew and Amanda and a some more sweet Minnesotans at a breathtaking beachside rental. Between catching up with friends and the taco buffet we managed to grab a couple of pictures.

Huge success of a night in my opinion, and what a great way to get you ready for the rest of Hurricane AmanDrew. 

Brendan + Kelly Tie the Knot at Grandma Kittie's

Brendan and Kelly got married on a perfect Saturday in September. Perched on a hillside in San Clemente, CA at Brendan's Grandma Kittie's house 60 or so of their friends and family watched them say I Do. I don't know how we even paired it down to this many photos. We were so in love with every shot, maybe it's the beautiful California landscape, maybe it's the tremendously good looking grouping of people, maybe it was all the love in the air.... quite possibly it was all these things combined into the perfect storm of a wedding. That or the fact that these two kids are nearest and dearest friends. MAYBE I should stop analyzing and let you see for yourself... 

Katie + Chris Hope Glen Farm Wedding

We've been asked this a few times by friends as they start to plan their weddings, would we rather be a guest or take the photos. While being a guest with no responsibility except to dance our faces off is nice, I think we both agree that there is something really special about being there for the entire day. We get to be there while you are getting ready, calm nerves, lend a helping hand, get to know your family, capture you at your most intimate moments and deliver a pretty awesome wedding present in the end... it's kind of the ultimate. Katie and Chris were no exception. As friends, we watched their relationship blossom and being a part of their wedding day was such an fantastic experience. 

Fun fact: Katie made a blue cake for me for our wedding day. It was quite perfect and pieces of it are still shmeered on my dress which is in a box under my bed.
