As promised! Here are some images that caught my eye when skimming through all the yummy images for Brittany & Sean.
I met these guys for their engagement session last summer. We stopped at an empty lot someone had dumped an old couch at for our first shots. We'd hardly met when I had them climbing onto this awful nasty couch to jump off holding hands. They were troopers and I knew right there we would get along very well. Brittany makes me smile whenever we talk.
These images are definitely worth looking at all of them for those blog skimmers out there!
One of my favorite things about Brittany is her absolute open self when she is comfortable with you and in a small group, but how absolutely shy she is as the center of attention. As a bride, you just can't escape everyone looking at you. :-) I have quite a few shots of them with her head tucked down just a bit down & to the side with lowered eyes and a great smile. In this shot, they were doing their grand entrance into the reception.
It's all the little details that help tell the story. Brides hire a photographer specifically for our ability to connect with the bride, tell her story & the love of the photographers photographic style. Brittany & Sean definitely took great care to incorporate Sean's Irish heritage with all the little details. Brittany loved the sparkly detail in her veil.
Rings with a Celtic design.
An awesome bagpipe player who has been learning his craft since the age of 18!
Sean was looking for his bride with full intent.
Brittany looked up just for a moment to see him as she made her way down the isle.
There is always something so special about mom and daughter shots. The love always shows.
Love this shot!!!
And love the satisfaction in Brittany's face as they are showing off the rings.
My favorite spot around her grandmothers house. The trees and grass were perfect.
Then we found the grape vines. It's such a delightfully romantic spot.
And where you can have fun with no prying eyes. Well, as long as you don't count the camera with the bossy girl behind it... ;-)
So happy together.
OK. This has GOT to be the best bouquet toss ever!! No, really. Do you see all the people. Look at how is moving their hands to go catch. Now, look over the the right at the cane. Got it?
Here it comes! There are two main contenders from what I can see. Do you think it's going to be a fight? They both look pretty determined.
Notice she isn't taking her hand off even though grandma is definitely giving her the eye letting her know she will be holding onto it!
OK. Lets just hug & laugh. Grandma definitely kept a hold of it. She is also quite the flirt.
The reception was great with even the smallest guests enjoying the socializing, food, dancing and spectating.
One of Guy's great shots of the day! He is sneaky with his shots when no one thinks he is taking images. Great candids and great artistic stuff.
One of my faves! Brittany may be shy in large groups, but she is a feisty fun girl. Sean picked a clear winner in her. She also picked a clear winner in him!
