How do I know this couple? Let me count the ways….my mom and Katy’s aunt have been friends since 1st grade and work together now; Katy’s aunt and I used to work together; I’ve gone to church with Jon’s family forever; and I was a bridesmaid in Jon’s sister’s wedding in 2001. Wow, that’s a lot of history! They are such a cute couple and have super sweet friends and family. They had a beautiful church wedding and a really fun dessert reception.
I am all about shoes! One of my former brides pointed out that I always do this with the shoes–stack them up.
Katy and Jon chose to see each other before the ceremony. I love being able to capture that “first sighting” of each other, so it’s super exciting to me when couples want to do their pictures ahead of time. I borrowed the first sighting technique below from photographer Cliff Mautner, master of lighting and emotion. 🙂
Katy’s excitement as she realizes the door is opening and Jon is coming out to see her for the first time…
I always get excited when I capture a smirk or “that look” that I know the groom is used to seeing from his bride. This look is sooo Katy!
I love the happiness on Katy’s mom’s face as she hugs her daughter after the ceremony.
The flower girl was SO cute and loved twirling in her poufy dress…
Jon’s mom had some fun on the dance floor, too!
J&K–I had such a great time working with you and your families! Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day!
