I remember the first time I met Brandi. It was at a Starbucks, bustling with people frantically working on their laptops and perhaps even some other photographers meeting with prospective brides. Brandi and her mom came in and as soon as I laid eyes on Brandi, I knew this was my kinda girl! Her hair was pulled up in a loose ponytail bun (the way I usually wear my hair) she had on running shorts and a sweatshirt (can you tell I was paying attention?) and she had on the most adorbale chunky glasses! You see, I am the kind of girl who can be girly when needed and I do love clothes, but I am a self-proclaimed non-girly girl. So, when she came in I knew this was my bride! She was effortlessly beautifulSo, of course when Brandi and Andy chose me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond thrilled!
I didn’t get to meet Andy that day, but wanted to before I was in his face on his wedding day all day with a camera, because, you know, that’s awkward. 😉 So, we all got together for coffee and they were both funny and charming and the perfect lunch dates! Andy made me laugh quite a bit, which is my favorite. And that carried over to the wedding day, only the bonus was that all of his groomsmen were equally funny! And Brandi was such a lovely, sweet, easy to please bride. I could not ask for better clients!
This did turn out to be the most challenging wedding I’ve ever shot, not because of my clients, but it was at night, outside, with no available light at the ceremony site. I knew this ahead of time and came prepared and everything went beautifully!! As a photographer, just like any field, having a challenge is invigorating! And walking away from it feeling like it went great and that the challenge brought me to a new level has me pumped!
But enough about me, this isn’t about me, these guys are gorgeous and amazing and I am so honored to have been there on their wedding daySpecial thanks to Robin at Di Fiori for sending these guys my way and for the absolutely gorgeous florals and tablescapesOne of my favorite things about this wedding were the cafe lights strung up by Le Force Entertainment, and of course, Avanti Fountain Place was amazingly beautiful and gracious Enjoy, share, spread the love
