What can I say about Aubrey + Kris? They are the kind of couple that Dave and I wish we could photograph every weekend. From the moment that I met with Aubrey and Kris last fall for the first time, I knew that I would love working with them. They both have a deep appreciation for photography and Aubrey has an eye for details that I really appreciate as a photographer. Aubrey + Kris’ “Up” themed engagement session was probably one of my all time favorite engagement sessions. I knew with the thought and effort they put into their engagement session, their wedding day would be nothing less than fabulous! The day did not disappoint! I have enjoyed getting to know Aubrey and Kris over the last year and the love that they share with one another is evident to everyone that meets them. The way they laugh together and the way that Aubrey’s whole face crinkles in excitement when she sees Kris, it just makes my heart sing!
Dave always spends the first portion of the day with the guys while I stay with the girls. I always tease Dave that the guys have so much more fun during the “pre-wedding” time and this was no exception. While Dave was photographing Kris and his guys playing games and drinking beer, Amy, our amazing assistant for the day, and I were photographing the girls in the next room as they hurried to put finishing touches on the bouquets, table runners, and their makeup. The girls have to work hard at weddings I tell you! 😉
Aubrey + Kris chose to do a first look on their wedding day so that they could spend more time with their guests after the ceremony. It is such a sweet time when brides and grooms see one another before the wedding without hundreds of people staring at them. The raw emotion is one of my favorite things to photograph. How perfect is this ceremony site? I love locations with character and the Shady Wagon Farm has plenty of character! While Dave and I were set and ready to go at the ceremony location, Amy, our third shooter for the day, was stationed back at the house with Aubrey and her dad and I absolutely love the pictures she captured of them before they walked down the aisle. We never miss a good toosh grab! 😉
Thank you Kris + Aubrey for allowing us to be a part of your special day! It was a complete honor to be a part of it! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together and we can’t wait to see what your future holds together!
