We looked forward to Megan and Brandon’s wedding all year. They are an adorable couple with a sweet caring relationship and were the most fun to photograph at their engagement session. The anticipation of the perfect day did not disappoint. It was absolutely gorgeous with beautiful fall colors and a crisp chill in the air. the day started off cloudy and then the warm golden sunlight that only fall could bring came out that late afternoon. Many things about this day and this couple reminded Roger and I of us and our own wedding day. The dynamic of the couple – she’s sweet, fun loving, and easy going – he’s innocently charming, cautious, and particular – reminds us of the two of us when we got married. And they day was undoubtedly just like our own fall wedding day in Gatlinburg Tennessee. It’s rewarding to take wonderful images of a wedding day, but it’s even more rewarding to watch two people commit to forever and feel that they “get it” and mutually share such love and admiration for the other. We thoroughly enjoyed Megan and Brandon’s wedding – and hope you do too!!!
They’d met in passing several times, although neither one really remember the other. However the connection was instant after a few times of crossing paths. At a friend’s party that Lauren wasn’t even supposed to be at, she and Justin began talking. They hung out all night and at the end of the party he managed to get her number. Little did she know, he had no idea what her name was. After asking around, her friends told him her name was Frizzo – her last name that all her close friends call her by. To this day when you look at his phone Lauren remains under “Frizzo”. Little could he have known that eventually her last name would be his.
It was the perfect autumn day. There was a warm breeze blowing through the vivid leaves in shades of yellows, reds, and orange. The sunlight warmed the air, and in the midst of a quiet church you could hear the sounds of laughter coming from the bride’s room in the basement. It was the ultimate fall wedding day. This couple if any deserved the perfect day that had been bestowed upon them. They’ve made it through adversity of a long – long distance relationship, and have had their share of hardships. But as any couple who is meant to spend forever together, they got through all of it with conviction that one day it would all pay off with a beautiful start to a magnificent future. This was the day storybook beginning to a story book love. Enjoy Casey & Corey’s wedding day!!!
Brendan is athletic and handsome – that’s a given. But he is such a charming, polite person with a warm, genuine smile. Having a high school senior myself, I have to believe that his parents must be so proud of him. You don’t come across teenagers like him every day, so we enjoyed getting to know Brendan one COLD Friday morning. I’m sure he would have rather been just about anywhere other than in front of our cameras that morning, but he modeled like a pro and never complained. Enjoy a few from Brendan’s senior session!!
During their first year together they went on a trip to Vegas. Family and friends worried that they’d get married while they were there. Little did everyone know it would be 6 years before that would happen!! Rob will say he knew on that trip, while Suzy admits it took longer for her. But when she knew, she knew. And she made it known in no subtle manner that she was ready. She picked out the ring, showed him, then started putting photos of it on his computer. She had no idea that he not only already had the ring, he’d already taken her parents to brunch to ask for their approval. (Later stories tell that Suzy’s mom was saying YES before he could even get the words out!)
