Needless to say, I enjoyed the holidays. Maybe a little too much. It’s been hard to get back in the swing of things. The Christmas tree still hanging out in the living room is evidence of that.
Today I am happy to share with you a wedding I shot in September.
My wedding coverage is for the entire day. So first things first, I met Erin and her girls at Wildfire Hair Company for some salon styling.
Boys and gals relax in much different ways.
While the girls were finishing up make up things I was able to capture some detail images.
Erin and Cyrus decided to see each other before their ceremony for a “First Look”. This was my first experience with a first look and it was so awesome. It was very touching to see such raw emotion from Cyrus when he saw Erin. Love birds.
I’ll let Erin tell you about it.
“I chose to do the First Look because I thought the pictures would
capture priceless facial expressions and they would be fun to look at years
down the road and reminisce. We chose to take the photos in a secluded area
right after I finished getting my wedding dress on. Elise hid out of sight,
or at least I was not paying any attention to where she was standing, I was
focused on removing the blindfold over my husband’s eyes. The pictures Elise
took were priceless and she was able to capture it without making such an
intimate moment feel awkward. I’m really glad I decided to add this option
to my photo package because the pictures she took are stunning!”
Thanks Erin! I love this one of her showing off her dress.
Since Erin and Cyrus went with the First Look we were able to schedule some photos in before their ceremony. Having this time to photograph really takes away the stress of shooting all the photos after the ceremony.
Erin and Cyrus made sure everyone had a good time on their wedding day. Mustaches included.
Best. Groomsmen. Photo. Ever.
Isn’t her veil gorgeous? I’ve never really been a fan of veils…until now.
After the ceremony we were able to fit in more photos before the reception.
Another veil shot.
And one more for good measure.
I think my favorite thing about Erin and Cyrus’s wedding was how they owned every detail. Everything said, “This is us and our love.” From the mustaches and high fives during the ceremony right down to the choreography of their first dance. Here’s to a lifetime of firsts you two!
