She was in the hotel room. Comfortable, but fidgety. Her hair and makeup were done, she had eaten lunch, and she had carefully laid out everything she would be wearing that day. There was nothing left to do but get into her gown. As I began photographing, she softly moved about, busying herself with any last minute detail she could think of. “I’m so excited,” she said. “I’m anxious to see him. There’s nothing else left for me to do. I’m so ready.”
While their ceremony and reception were being held later on at the Celebration Farm, they both got ready nearby at the Marriott. It was forecasted to potentially rain that day, but instead we got humid sunshine and a very slight breeze. Thankfully, as the day progressed, the weather also got more comfortable!
Stephanie & Matt were not just a beautiful couple to photograph, but a truly gracious couple to work with! I could say a thousand wonderful things about them, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
Her gown was so perfect for her! Her and Matt are both very athletic and this gown hugged her body in every right way possible. I love how unique it is!
This. If you’re on the fence about a first look, this is reason enough to have one. You know in this moment there is no one else in the world but her and him.
This photo is one of my instant favorites. It was a happy accident; I think they had just kissed and she laughed and said, “We’re such dorks!”
We drove out to Celebration Farm for the rest of the day and were met there with a gorgeous bridal party.
I love a good pun and these mugs were pretty much my favorite. I obviously put it to good use right away.
The sunset was golden for stepping out for a few more photos and I’m so glad we did!
Let’s take a moment to admire those triceps. Girrrllllll…
