Brad and Jamie’s wedding

Oct 10, 2011 by     6 Comments    Posted under: Uncategorized

Gorgeous. Beautiful. Fabulous. These are the words that kept coming to mind as a I edited these pictures. Brad and Jamie are one of those couples that are not only good-looking, but are beautiful on the inside too. There were a lot of tears of joy at this wedding.

 

I put my sneak peek up on my Facebook fan page soon after the wedding. If you haven't seen those pictures, here's the link. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Brita-Caroline-Photography/193328254070177#!/media/set/?set=a.193520220717647.45541.193328254070177&type=1

Jamie and the girls started the day by getting ready at the church.

Jamie was thrilled over her bouquets. The flowers are from the Kukkakaupa Flower Shop. I got a nice email from them recently complimenting me on the photography. Yay!

We went to McLain's for the pictures. Jamie was great. She was super-easy-going about the whole day, just wanted me to concentrate on getting the real moments. Ideal. That's what I love.

The first look (more pics of this on FB):

I try to avoid anything too staged, so when I first got into wedding photography, I was a huge skeptic of first looks. I was starting to catch onto how special they are with my first weddings, but this wedding clinched it.  There was not a dry eye in the house.  I love first looks.

As I was busy with the flower/ring pictures, the bride discovered that there were daddy long legged spiders creeping amongst the weeds. And the rest of us discovered just how much the bride hates spiders. AND to top it off, Tina really did find a spider in her crinolin and had to untangle it while the bride held her breath. But I got some great pictures out of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tina got a picture of Brad leaning way over peering and looking for spiders. It is hilarious. I'll save that one for the bride and groom. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Back at the church, I got some family pictures of each of the smaller families. I love this kind of thing. Practical and effient, everybody getting a picture of their nice little family all dressed up on the big day.
