amanda & brian | foxtail golf club

oh, dear amanda & brian….where to even begin?

getting ready shots are always ones that clients wonder if they’ll really want once the day is over.  then they see them, and it’s no questions asked…everyone LOVES the preparation photos.  (a HUGE thank you to my 2nd shooter, kevin harrington found at http://kevinharringtonphoto.com …he was not only able to photograph the men while i stayed with the ladies during the preparation time before the ceremony, but was a creative rockstar and a huge support to me the rest of the day as well.  thank you, kevin!)

ahhh….the door shots.  when amanda originally told me about wanting a photo like this, we brainstormed about where to make this happen.  and wouldn’t you know it….it seemed that most of the doors were  glass around every corner of the hotel and venue, and well, when a  bride and groom don’t want to see each other until the ceremony, glass doors just don’t work.  so i found this door, that happened to be in the main walkway.  we had the awesome bridal party run interference and guard the exit and entrance, so that we could have a few quick, uninterrupted moments to get the door shots.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the result.

the cutest ring bearer and flower girl that you ever did see.

ahhhh….sigh.   i love these two photos. the bride and groom laying eyes on one another for the first time.  look at those sweet, excited, loving glances!!

a beautiful ceremony…

and really…could the first kiss have been any more perfect?

after the ceremony, we commenced with a few fun photos of the bridal party…

and then onto the romantics.  because the bride and groom opted NOT to do a first look, we knew we’d be on a tight schedule for their first photos as husband and wife.  with a little planning and quick moving, we had enough light to get some beautiful portraits.

some great detail shots from kevin.

speaking of the rings…

the toasts.  such sweet stories and funny sentiments shared about our bride and groom.  also…katy, the maid of honor rewrote some lyrics specifically about our bride and groom, and every time i see these images i start singing along with them in my head.

LOVE the last image in this sequence.

i’m sorry, but look at those happy, in love, i only have eyes for you, expressions.  geez, guys.

i couldn’t close this entry without the bouquet toss.  check out the expressions of victory and celebration.  love, love, love.

this wedding was an absolute joy to photograph.  amanda & brian were not only photogenic, but super crazy for each other, the weather was beautiful and everyone was gracious and so happy for their bride and groom.  here’s to a life together that is as fun and full of laughter and love as was your big day.  thank you for letting me capture these memories for you.
