We originally had Jenna and Bryan's winter engagement session scheduled for President's Day, but once the weather forecast said 60 degrees with 100% chance of thunderstorms, we knew we had to figure something else out. Luckily we were able to get it in the morning before. And, even luckier, there was the prettiest snow fall the night before that left us a beautiful winter wonderland to play in! It was absolutely freezing but Bryan had no problem wrapping his arms around his bride-to-be to keep her warm. These two love birds are getting married this October at the Lake Lawn Resort in Wisconsin, and I cannot wait to celebrate with them!
Jenny and Carl were so much fun to work with! The fact that they are super model gorgeous didn't hurt either. They were such troopers to get up at the crack of dawn with me for their sunrise engagement session. I have to say though...that light...gosh...it was soooo worth it!!
The two are planning a destination wedding in Charleston that I just know will be as fabulous as they are together. Congrats!
I had so much fun with Michelle and Andy during their engagement session. There was a little while that day where it looked the rain was going to foil our plans, but fortunately it stopped just in time for their shoot at Round Barn Farm in Manhattan. This awesome couple is getting married in Mexico in November!
I'm sure when my sister Kelsey was planning her wedding in Las Vegas, she wasn't expecting it to be one of the rainiest weekends they've had all year, but that's just how her luck tends to go. It drizzled all day as we got ready at the Flamingo. Fortunately, the skies cleared just long enough for us to take some epic photos in at Dry Lake Bed in the Mohave Desert. The desert, a black wedding dress, smoke grenades, and a gorgeous couple, it doesn't get much better than that.
We came back to the hotel so I could squeeze into my matron of honor dress and to meet up with the rest of the bridal party, family, and all of their friends who flew out for the occasion. It's incredible how many people came out to see them get married, you can tell how loved they are by everyone in their life. Then it was off to the Little Chapel of Flowers where they said their tear filled I do's and a little after party at Lily Bar in the Ballagio. Congrats to the happy couple and welcome to the family Mike!
