November 30, 2009 - Weddings
kim + john
Ok, so our experiment in long-distance blogging was an utter failure. We attempted to blog with Rich in Baltimore last week while I was here, but it failed miserably. So, we're a little behind on blogging and are planning on catching up this week. To start off are Kim and John. They were married on a ridiculously warm and sunny day in Niagara Falls. I started off at the hotel with Kim while she was getting ready...
... and her flower girl stayed busy doing everyone's makeup. :)
Adorable! Actually, all of my productivity last week was an utter failure. I would like to take a moment and salute single parents. I have no idea how one raises a kid without a partner. One week absolutely whipped my ass, and Murphy is a good kid! We had super fond memories of Kim and John from their engagement shoot, and we couldn't wait to get started on the day. Check out this amazing little church in the Falls (St. Mary's of the Cataract).
Yeah, I walked in and Rich was like, "Surprise! Look at this amazing church I got you for today!" It really is a stunning church, and if you'd had a thing to do with it, babe, you'd get major brownie points... but you didn't :)
Favorite cute kim-face of the day, right here :)
I loved this quick moment with Dad before heading down the aisle...
Ch-ching! Awesome, awesome, awesome church.
By the way, we're watching Christmas Vacation on AMC right now during the squirrel scene. NEVER gets old :)
No, it really doesn't. I LOVE movies this time of year. So good. I loved this shot - getting all reflect-y on your ass!
Aaaand the cease-fire of making fun of the stuff you say on the blog? Violently ended. "Reflect-y on your ass?" Haze yourself.
Whatever. You're just jealous of my awesome reflecty shot.
A+++++ Love this shot!
We headed to this little spot by the rapids where the rail falls away and you can get right up tight next to the rapids. Honestly, this space is about 10 feet of grass between the rapids and the road. We get asked a lot about locations for photos, and truly, if the light is pretty, it really doesn't have to be a giant park or somewhere expected. Just a little patch of grass works beautifully!!
I love looking at these and remembering how I had to take off my sweater because I was sweating. It was an incredible day all the way around.
Double shots of hands holding the bouquet? What the hell :)
Our portrait shoot was rad - we really owe this bridge a lot - we're used it and it's stone-with-vines looked several times this year :)
That's my favorite of yours ^. Love it. Can I just stop for a second and say how gorgeous Kim looks! She has such a classic beauty, and I LOVED her dress. I was so smitten with the lace jacket. Yum!
This was my favorite shot of the day. (I think I've said that a couple times, now, but now I really mean it!)
Rad reception shot!
Kim and John definitely rocked it out from the start of the reception. They were a super fun, tons of dancing, lots of energy group which was amazing to shoot.
Heck yes. I love receptions where I notice myself kindof half-dancing while I shoot. I mean, I always stop doing it immediately so you don't make fun of me or have a guest look at me all weird...but it happens.
That's all for us tonight (oh crap, the Star Trek:TNG Family Guy just came on - best FG ever!!). We really loved this wedding and this couple and their families and their friends and THANK YOU again for shooting with us :) Talk to you guys soon!
