I am a little behind on posting this blog post from this fantastic wedding I shot last Saturday. After I downloaded all the cards, holy photos!!! It took me some time to weed through them all pick some of my favorites and I am not sure I included them all.
I originally met Margaret and Scoot last summer at one of my favorite places, Starbucks, to discuss their wedding details. They were referred to me by one of my favorite little clients. The groom is the uncle of a little man that I have been photographing since he was in the womb. I thought they were a fun and loving couple and we just clicked. I really got to know them during their engagement session, which included a lot of laughing and some goofing off.
Here we are, almost a year later, on their wedding day and I truly felt as though I was watching my friends get married. I was even lucky enough to be the first one to give them a hug after they walked back down the isle as husband and wife. The whole wedding itself was a wonderful event, the kind of wedding I would have loved to been a guest at. A plethora of food, a dessert bar, a beautiful location, a photo booth, and a DJ who really got the party going. Speaking of dessert bar, I might have to start including it in my contract that if there is chocolate cake stuffed with peanut butter served, I get a piece.
Weddings are always a long day, especially when 8 months pregnant, but it is always worth it in the long run. You know you have done good when the bride and groom hug you before you leave the the sister of the groom sends you a wonderful email the next day. I have official become the “family photographer,” I love the sound of that!

One of our stops for pictures included Bear Mountain State Park. Although it was closed, the workers were great and actually opened up the Carousel for us for photos. Don’t worry, no bridesmaid was injured while shooting.
Some of the wedding details including the rings, invitation, flowers, venue, cigar bar and the flush mount signature album from our engagement session.
First dance, photobooth fun and a garter blunder. When firing the the garter off to the boys, the groom shot it straight up and straight onto a ledge. It took several attempts by guests, a ladder, and the DJ to get it down.
Congratulations Margaret and Scott!!!
