Clicking Through Life » Real life wedding photography

I can honestly think of no better way to kick of the year than with a wedding.  And a couple like Jennifer and Jimmy made it absolutely perfect.  They are fun, goofy and loving and have the biggest personalities.  Their smiles and laughter will light up a room and you know the party doesn’t start until they get there.  And what I loved the most about their wedding was that they tied every single one of those qualities into the day.

Erin & Andy were married last fall and I was beyond happy to be there to capture this truly special day for them.  It was my last wedding of the year and will always be one of my favorites.   You may recognize Erin if you’ve been with me for a while.  She assisted me for weddings when she first discovered her passion for photography.  Since then, she’s moved on and started her own photography business specializing in newborns and babies and she’s awesome!  Check out her website website to see for yourself.

Erin and Andy have been together forever and they’ve been waiting for this day just as long it seems. But their wait is over.  It was a perfect fall day.  The colors were at their peak and the rain that threatened held off.  With a creative’s eye, Erin meticulously planned every perfect detail.  Soft romantic colors, perfect hints of rustic charm and Pinterest worthy DIY details made everything absolutely beautiful.  But the ceremony under the weeping willow trees took my breath away and seeing Erin come down the aisle honestly brought tears to my eyes.  I seriously couldn’t be happier for these two and had so many favorite pictures from their day it was hard to narrow it down.  So here’s just a few of my favorites.  :-)

StyledShoot_0544SolitudeLinks_WEB.jpg

I love doing styled shoots.  I mean really love.  I love the opportunity to collaborate with professionals and the freedom to get creative without the pressures of a wedding day.  So when Jennifer Hollenbeck the events director at Solitude Links mentioned she wanted to do a styled shoot highlighting a same sex couple I immediately jumped on board!  This shoot was a little different for me.  Since we weren’t able to find a planner that was available, I took the lead on styling shoot and I hand crafted a lot of the details.  I don’t get the opportunity to craft much anymore, so I really enjoyed call crafting “work” for this project.  :-) We did 2 different themes, which is your favorite?

Special thanks to our awesome team who all pitched in to make this shoot a success!

I’ve been absent from my blog again.  Last fall was incredibly busy and it went by so fast.  With 4 weddings, a full shooting schedule that didn’t slow down until the first week of December, on top of a busy life outside of CTL.  Keeping my head afloat and meeting deadlines were my priorities and before I knew it days, weeks and months went by without blogging.

So today I’m happy to share Laura & Josh’s wedding from last October for a little Flashback Friday fun.  Their wedding was filled with personal touches and beautiful fall colors.  But what made their truly special was that they were sharing their wedding anniversary with Laura’s grandparents  who were celebrating their 62nd anniversary that day.  Seriously, 62 years…
