This weekend I had the honor of photographing the wedding of Stacy and Jody. In the crazy Minnesota weather we’ve been having I was a nervous wreck leading up to this weekend, but these two couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The weather and locations were amazing. And these two and their bridal party were so great to work with and not to mention beautiful to photograph.
They were married at the Woods Chapel in Orono. The stone buildings on these grounds are so fun with lots of little alcoves all over the grounds for pictures.
It also included an area for the bride to get ready with her girls. I loved the decor of the upper cottage.
Then we moved over the Lafayette Club for the reception, now talk about customer service. This place was amazing. They were on top of every detail and so to everyone’s needs. We ended out or time with the Howard’s as they danced the night away.
One quick picture of the gorgeous calla lilies that made up the brides bouquet and their rings.
A thank you to the newly weds and my Mom Sue for helping shoot this fun and beautiful wedding.
Can you believe this little guy is one already?!? It seems like just yesterday that I was taking his new born pictures.
Now he is the constantly moving little man. His Mommy was so excited to plan this cake smash and her idea turned out so cute.
He was so good during the shoot. He was completely the little man his Mommy wanted to him to be for the pictures.
I was so excited to do a quick photo shoot with my good friend Becky. She is starting her career as a youth pastor and speaker. Yep, she is a great youth pastor and speaker. And I am speaking from experience she has spoken at the camp I work with. She and I have known each other for years and it’s amazing to watch her grow in her field. Since I know she will be doing more speaking in the future beyond our camp, I thought she could use some headshots. She will need it for promotional material.
I am happy with the way they turned out. We didn’t have a lot to work with it was freezing outside so we took these in a basement! We will have to do more this summer.
There we have it my first official year in business has come to a close. I can’t believe how great it’s been. I have learned A LOT! And had so much fun in the process.
I wanted to leave this year with a few special pictures from 2012.
Babies & Maternity
I also want to share my favorite from my second shooter. Working with my Mom has been fun and rewarding. And she takes some really great shots!
Thank you for spending the year with Bright Photography.
I can’t wait to see what 2013 holds for us
