We kicked off our 2011 wedding season this past weekend with a wonderful couple, Mandy & Chris. It was a fabulous day with beautiful sunny skies. Jerry and I want to take a moment to thank our friend and very talented photographer Shanna Kreza of Shanna Kreza Photography who flew all the way from California to assist us. We only wish she could be here for every wedding!Her great eye for light and posing was so much fun have on board this weekend, and this was a really big wedding with lots of stuff going on (lots of travel between venues, photo booth setup etc) and having her with us allowed us to have a wedding without any hiccups. Thank you again Shanna, we love you lots!
Now.. Mandy & Chris… I met these guys about a year ago when they were referred to me and every time we have gotten together to talk about wedding details we end up talking for 2-3 hours every time. You know you get along well with a couple when that happens 😉 We always end up laughing together and sharing stories and we all have a lot in common … not to mention the fact that Mandy and I share a first name and were both named after that 1980 Barry Manilow songI loved the fact that we were able to incorporate Chris’ fireman and army medic careers into both their engagement session and their wedding photos. I loved the fact that Mandy chose some AWESOME green bridesmaid dresses that photographed beautifully. Oh, and I loved their choice in a first dance song (Staind- Tangled Up). Their wedding party was a blast and kept us laughing the whole day as well. I hope you guys have a wonderful honeymoon and I hope to see you guys again soon. Jerry & I wish you the best and are so glad we have gotten to know you guys over the past yearThank you for choosing us to be a part of your day!
Here’s just a sneak peek of the day.. .and be sure to play the slide show at the end 😉
