The first time I sat down with Brittany (or B-Ball as I secretly & affectionately think of her in my mind) to talk about her wedding, she told me of her vision: an elegant yet laid back affair trimmed with a red palette that included crimson-stained lips to accompany her long, dark and beautiful tresses. I envisioned her as stunning as Snow White and I have to say, my imagination was pretty spot on:

I learned that day how much family and friends mean to her and Devin…and I crossed my fingers that she would pick me to be the teller of this story through photographs worthy of that love. And to top it off, she also got giddy about a certain “zombie themed” engagement session that had me holding the edge of my chair for fear of jumping off my seat with utter excitement.

There are many stories to tell from this wedding day. But for now, I’ll share a few favorites as the rest of the edit comes to completion. Here are a small selection of the happy day:

Starting us off is our gorgeous bride. I love how much her laughter lights up a room. What a an amazing smile she has!

That laughter was infectious…and while Brittany dressed behind the room divider, her bridesmaids had a great & silly time:

On the reveal, of course, things got a little more dramatic…because our bride truly is a vision:

Outside, the boys granted Devin his wish…send a secret message to his bride. Perhaps the first, last, & only time he’ll get to be right?

And as the night progressed, the party was a lively as the rest of the day. Group hug!

For a portrait, Brittany had asked me to take a long exposure with sparklers. I must thank them both and my awesome lighting assistant, Jordan. It was brrrrrrr cold out on this night and it was no easy feat to stand so very still. Purple lips and shivering bodies are definitely worth the magic of Snow White’s kiss.
