It’s 1:05 AM and I’m supposed to get up at 2 AM so we can get ready and leave the house for Christmas. I just couldn’t leave Chicago without getting this post up though. Merry Christmas Brynn and Jeff!
Becca Dryer was my second shooter for this event. If you’re in Portland, book her! Her work is fabulous and she really came through for me, allowing me to be a little bit of a guest during the reception and do some dancing with my son. Thanks Becca!
My biggest group photo ever! I’m actually in this shot, as I set it up and then turned the camera over to my friend (and fellow photographer) Kelli Nicole. My husband is pictured here too, as he was one of the groomsmen in the wedding!
The Portland temple is absolutely majestic.
The Portland temple also has this little atrium where you can take pictures right inside the lobby. It’s a little strange carrying my camera in the front doors but it was the only chance Brynn had to let her train down and not worry about holding her dress out of the puddles!
I had some fun playing with off camera flash during the sunset. Thanks for giving me all of this portrait time guys!
The fire alarm was pulled (there were many, many kids present at this wedding) and the fireman was willing to step in and model for a little bit. This is Becca’s shot and I love it!
Another shot by Becca that I absolutely adore.
This was some of the most enthusiastic dancing I’ve seen at a Mormon wedding!
I got a little crazy on the dance floor
Is it just me, or do the littlest girls always catch the bouquet?
I cried when Brynn danced when her grandmother, and I’m not usually a crier at weddings. It was such a touching moment.
The sparkler send-off was INSANE. It was pretty dangerous just to walk through to find a spot!
I think this picture is absolutely hilarious. I shouldn’t laugh at the poor kid in the right corner, but his expression is so hilarious. (And sad if he was just burned by one of those sparklers. I hope he wasn’t burned!)
Love you two!
