Chandra & Nick ~ Married!

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Chandra and Nick. I have known Chandra since gradeschool! Those were the days!  jr. high sleepovers, cake for breakfast, and Monroe county fairs… good times! 🙂 We lost touch for a while in high school, but then reconnected again when I began photographing their daughter Gabriella’s milestones since she was a newborn. Gabriella is two now and such a sweet little girl, the perfect result of two people so completely in love. So when they asked me to photograph their wedding I was thrilled! Here is a preview (rather large) of their special day, enjoy!


The dress …

…. and the bride … were simply stunning!



I would like to personally thank the weather that day for holding out and not raining for the brief time we had to take pictures! (despite the fact that it was raining sideways shortly before) … Thank you weather!


Might have to say that these were among my favorite shots of the entire day! Love the mother daughter connection here …

I also remember this little dude as a newborn… and now he is walking mom down the aisle… how is that for making you feel old?

The wedding party


I thought this was so cute… mom and dad trying to have a moment, but she wanted in the picture too! That is some real life documented right there.   😉

There is always “that guy” at the wedding reception that gets a little too carried away, can anyone find him? I for one, cannot 😉
