To say that I've been excited about this wedding for a long time would be an understatement. Elizabeth is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful brides that I've ever been able to work with. Every few months she sent me a card saying that she was keeping up with my blog and that she was excited to have me involved in her wedding, then a week or so before her wedding I received this message in one of her emails.
We are so excited to have you photographing our wedding! Michael and I have been periodically checking your website and fall in love with your pictures all over again. You are able to capture energy and character with such elegance!
How sweet is she?! Michael and Elizabeth, it was a pleasure to be part of your wedding. I had such a great time celebrating with you and your families, and I wish you many adventures in your life together.
Their wedding ceremony was scheduled for sunset, so we decided to take advantage of the great afternoon light that we had before the ceremony to do their portraits.
I loved the warm fall colors that we had all around us. It was absolutely beautiful!
Photographer's note: Since the wedding ceremony started at sunset, by the time it was over I was basically shooting in the dark. Luckily, though, I had my trusty 5D and Canon's 200mm f2 IS lens. It looks like a canon (No really, it's HUGE), but it is a great help when you're shooting in extreme low light. It's also super sharp!
<3 Favorite! Right after the ceremony Michael and Elizabeth's family gathered together to embrace the new couple. This is Elizabeth hugging on her father.
I owe a huge thanks to my sorority sister and amazing assistant Corinne for helping me out on Saturday. I would have been running around like a crazy person without her :) Thanks, Corinne!
