Justin & Maria | Quicksilver Golf Club Wedding

Justin and Maria were one of those couples that would glow when you’d ask about the other. They had known each other since they were kids, and even though they had taken different paths as teenagers, they had found their way back to each other in a beautiful romantic story. Love is found in the simplest of places.

Maria made her own wedding shoes, didn't they turn out cute? We loved all her accessories ;)

IMG_3543These are some of my favorite wedding photos! I normally do not set foot on the altar in the church out of respect for the church as well as standing in front of family members (they can’t see their kids, it’s rude!) but the priest invited me to come behind the altar and take photos of Justin and Maria so that I could see their faces! I was so excited! Usually I can only get photos of the couple with their backs or sides to my camera, but now I could see them facing each other! He also then invited both their parents to the altar during the vow ceremony, so that everyone could be close and involved. He told me he was Sicilian, and of course that explained a lot :)

After the ceremony, we headed to the Quicksilver Golf Club for the reception. The grounds provided a beautiful back drop for Justin and Maria’s bridal portrait!

Silver Mendhi was easy to do with the kit she got from Michael’s…simply draw your design and sprinkle on the GLITTER! Yes! Glitter!

wedding dancing photos

Such a good idea for guests with small babes! Bring their PJs with them! They can dance and play easily in their PJs and be comfortable, and when they pass out, easily slip them in their car seats and drive them home swiftly to bed without having to rustle them awake to change their clothes. Easy is best! <3

Natasha & Lane | Scottish Rite Cathedral Wedding

I think of the word “stunning” when I think of Natasha and Lane! From the time I shot their engagement photos to now, they just make a photographer’s job so easy!  They are beautiful inside and out, and love to have a good time and are relaxed in front of the camera. Plus, they constantly offer you a drink, coffee, chocolate milk, or beer so…you seriously can’t beat that! Everyone had a blast on their wedding day–it was great to be surrounded by people that truly enjoyed being around each other! The day started off at their home, where Lane was getting dressed with his brothers/groomsmen and hanging out in the ManCave. They got a little crazy, and I laughed so hard I literally couldn’t shoot! It’s great to see brothers that have such a close bond!

Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz Photography Kate Stutz PhotographyAfter that, I headed to the home Natasha grew up in, and I went from a whole lotta crazy to a whole lotta pretty….seriously, just pretty everywhere! Pretty girls, pretty dresses, pretty shoes, makeup, everything!

Laura & Patrick | Succop Conservancy Wedding

I was so excited to see Laura and Patrick on their wedding day at the Succop Conservancy! They are such a sweet couple, and Laura is an absolute doll baby! She’s seriously one of the most cheerful people I’ve ever met, and it’s easy to see why Patrick adores her. They got creative with their wedding day–Laura and her dad grew their own wheat grass for the centerpieces and had unique touches throughout their day–scroll through to see all the lovely details and beautiful vibrant color schemes!

Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding PhotosLaura and her girls got ready early in the day so we could do bridal party shots before the ceremony. This really saved time after the ceremony, and also allowed the girls to relax and joke around because we weren’t rushed. Laura gave all of her girls adorable purses as a gift, and they all looked radiant together!

Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding Photos Succop Conservancy Wedding PhotosI love doing these types of photos–what I like to call “First Look Without Looking”! We meet at a pre-designated area where you can’t see your fiance, but, you can hold hands and talk or say a prayer together! It’s a great moment to share before the quick-pace of the wedding day comes around!

Danielle & Bill | La Roche Wedding Photos | The Chadwick Wedding Photos

One of the sweetest girls I know, Danielle was all smiles as she told me about how she met her husband-to-be, Bill. Just sitting with them and seeing the way they looked at each other, you knew this was meant to be! I was so happy to be able to be a part of their day, and Danielle planned a gorgeous wedding full of blush pinks, flowers, and lovely details that made for a stunning wedding.

For Danielle and Bill’s bridal portrait, we did a First Look Session over at La Roche College campus. I love doing these because they are so intimate and romantic! Because it’s just the bride and groom, you get some time alone with your partner that you won’t get for the rest of your wedding day. It’s a time for you two to truly relax and enjoy being with one another, and there is no audience (except me!) for you to pose in front of and you can be yourself and get lost in the moment, as these two clearly had no trouble doing ;)
I love this first shot, of Danielle walking towards Bill where he was waiting for her–it’s romantic for one partner to be standing facing away from the other, and when you’re ready, you touch them on the shoulder and they see you for the first time dressed in your bridal attire–surprise! It’s a beautiful moment!
