A Formal Wedding with A Costume Celebration

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — Tags: , , — candid reflections @ 9:36 am

On Saturday, Ironman and I photographed a candle lit wedding, with the help of the best assistant I could ask for, my sister Suzy.  Then we had fun snapping shots of all sorts of characters during the reception, as the couple encouraged their guests to change into costume to help them celebrate.

All eyes are on Ben, and do the looks on their parent’s faces not tug at your heart???

Ben and Brittany wrote and read their own vows to eachother, very heart-warming.

See… I told you.

Brittany’s sister and brother-in-law made the wedding cake (if I’m not mistaken) and cupcakes… beautiful, and delish!

Lindsey+Peter & one fun bridal party

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — Tags: , , , — candid reflections @ 3:59 pm

Before the wedding, we hung out on the waterfront with Lindsey, Peter, and their fun group of close friends.  We had a great time, I can only imagine how much fun they would be to hang out with if high heels, pretty dresses, and tuxedos weren’t in the way!

Lindsey+Peter : The First Look

Filed under: Photo Sessions, Photography — Tags: , , , — candid reflections @ 6:16 pm

I LOVE it when the bride and groom opt to see one another before the ceremony… when asked, I always recommend it.   When experienced in an intimate setting, the first look becomes a beautiful time to exchange sentiments and savor the moment, rather than rush through, as often happens in a ceremony.  As the photographer, I (me and my telephoto lens) get to hang out in the background, like a fly on the wall, and stealthily try to capture the emotion and tenderness that makes my heart melt every time. Lindsey and Peter’s first look was no exception!  Gentle…tender…beautiful…  why not take a look for yourself!

Lindsey and Peter’s Wedding ~ The Details

Filed under: Photo Sessions — Tags: , , , — candid reflections @ 5:16 am

Thanks to the uber chic sisters Georgia & Bobbie of Two Sisters Planning, I was on cloud nine photographing all of the lovely details of Lindsey and Peter’s beautiful July afternoon wedding.  Georgia and Bobbie are wonderful event coordinators, not to mention they’re ah-MAZE-ing flower arrangers.  Not only did they plan, decorate, and orchestrate the whole event, but they also created the most beautiful fresh flower arrangements, as well as the bride and bridesmaids bouquets and the boutonnieres.  They definitely have talent coursing through their veins!   Thanks Bobbie, Georgia, and crew – for creating such beautiful eye candy for me and my camera to capture… and for everyone to enjoy! 😉

Robbyn+Ron… Part I ~ The Reveal

Filed under: Photo Sessions — Tags: , , — candid reflections @ 12:53 am

Robbyn and Ron married last week – destionation style in Hawaii, then came home to celebrate traditional style with family and friends.  Their wedding here at home was charming and intimate, and their affection for eachother, beautiful and captivating.  I am honored that I was invited to share in capturing the joy of their celebration.  Thanks guys… your tenderness for one another was delightful to behold, as well as capture with my camera.
