Andrew and Kellys – Rustic Fall Wedding at Crystal Peak

Weddings

We rushed outside when there was a break in the rain. As everyone got situated outside, the skies opened back up. It could not have been more perfect if we planned it. While we were ready to just sit in the rain, it was officially called to relocate back inside. A common theme that every couple seems to give as advice is “things aren’t always going to go your way, but at the end of you day you marry the person you love”. And their wedding was no exception. The threat of rain loomed all day, and it held out until everyone was dressed and ready to take photos outside. While the outdoor ceremony was rained out, the love still flowed just as happily inside (well with the exception of Blake who was not interested in all the attention).

While the rain may have dampened us, it didn’t dampen the spirits inside. The indoor ceremony got underway a little late, but it was worth the wait! While short time, always hurts us, we managed to come out with some really beautiful photos when it was all said and done!

If you happened to watch the news in Connecticut in October, there is a pretty good chance you might have seen one of the more heartwarming moments of the evening. Andrew sang and absolutely lovely rendition of a Dustin Lynch song for Kelly and her Father who had lost their Mother and Wife earlier this year.

It was a night full of amazing people, celebrating an amazing couple, and we were honored to be a part of it.

Jose and Ianina – A Wedding in Peru
Jose and Ianina are such a fun couple. Ianina is my mother in-laws boss, so anything other than perfect was not an option (well it never is, but this time even moreso!). Now I have hundreds of edited photos, seriously, narrowing it down to these was the hardest of any wedding so far. I have so many favorites! I might even post more, definitely going to make a separate post with their civil union and engagement shoot! We got 30 minutes in a park in Barranco, Peru to do their formals. The reception was about 1 hour away from the church, so squeezing a shoot in on the way meant limited time and limited options. Barranco is a beautiful area, but ...

The Wedding of Steve and Karen Holcomb
When I met Steve and Karen last fall for their engagement shoot, I knew we were gonna have a blast. Seriously, we couldn't stop laughing the whole shoot. Their wedding, was no different. I felt right at home, (I even made it onto Moms fridge!). There's nothing more important to me, than being a part of someones wedding, as opposed to being a worker at a wedding. I think we definitely accomplished that this time. With a beautiful day, and a gorgeous location, I think the day could not have been any more perfect. Now as I began to upload these photos, I relived it all again. Took a lot of tough decision making to choose which ones to share beca ...
