Ohhh how I love weddings! Love, love, love wedding dresses, adore the bridesmaids dresses, swoon over the bouquets, and I can’t get enough of all the little details. So how lucky am I that I not only get to see all of this through my eyes, but also my lens. Shooting two weddings this weekend back to back (Saturday & Sunday) confirmed to me once again that I adore not only being a photographer, but also a wedding photographer. Who else gets to capture little moments of love and happiness and store them for people for a lifetime. I often think about how special it is that wedding photography has such an heirloom factor, how crazy it seems that long after my days here, a part of me will live on through the photographs I take. 100’s of years down the road, in a time so much different than the current, someone could be looking at the work D and I have created for their family. Makes me smile!
This last Saturday Meghann & Aaron said I do in Waunakee, with a reception following at the Bergamont in Oregon. Couples often ask me what my favorite reception facilities are, and the Bergamont is definitely right up there! Derrick & I were lucky enough to not only photograph the wedding but also create a wedding film. (which I can not wait to see!) The day was nothing less then wonderful, Meghann and Aaron had a great wedding party, and wonderful families…not to mention Meghann and Aaron were laid back, in love and easy to work with! (everything a photographer/videographer could want!) Sooo happy for them both! Here are just a few of my favorites, its always hard to pull out only a select few to share on the blog from the 100’s of images that are waiting to be presented to the couple!
Congrats Meghann and Aaron, we can’t wait to share the rest soon!!!!
