joe and nicole, congratulations!
i hope you enjoy your sneaks as much as i enjoyed capturing your big day.
i first met Jelena years ago at her cousin Andrea's bridal shower. you may remember Dre from here (they've come quite a long way since then!). Jelena, this svelte, leggy beauty, was, unbeknown to me at the time, very taken by a gentleman named Trevor. flash forward two years, and Trevor had popped the question, and i was set to capture their wedding day!
Jelena and Trevor, thank you so much for letting me capture some of the most exciting moments of your life, thus far. you let me into your family that night, and while being Polish is pretty awesome, it made me want to be Bosnian for the night. i loved that while i may not have understood the words being spoken all the time, the love in the air was felt by all and the sentiment was known.
i'm so excited to share these images with you, and even MORE excited to announce that the Soots are now pregnant with their first child, a son!
you may remember these newlyweds from their knoxville wedding in may. after their beautiful barn nuptials in tennessee, the jay and megan came to indiana for a reception with megan's family this past week. they couldn't come this far without stopping by Redamak's (shameless plug for the most delicious burgers in the history of the world. if you haven't been and live near northern indiana or southwestern michigan, shame on you, and get your booty to new buffalo asap.) and doing a newlywed session with me!
we met at redamak's (again, really, you must.) where jay downed a triple and megan a double. i point this out, because in the pictures that follow, you'd never know they were capable of putting away that much food. these two love and live a healthy lifestyle; saying they're gym regulars is an understatement. even after a double cheeseburger and fries megan looked immaculate in her gown, and turned quite a few heads on the beach.
the sunset was INCREDIBLE this evening; the perfect backdrop for their photos. megan and jay, i love you both, and it was a pleasure capturing your love again. oh, and thanks for the burgers ;]
i first met megan when we stepped onto the soccer field at eight years old. we were little girls, but our friendship grew as we played together throughout middle school. during our high school years we lost touch as i moved away to a different state, but senior year we reconnected. unbeknownst to us, we'd been accepted to saint mary's college in notre dame, in and saw one another at a spring orientation meeting. immediately we decided we had to be roommates.
on friday, i witnessed megan getting a new roommate for life. i am so excited and happy to announce the marriage of mr. and mrs. jay piper. while i was a bridesmaid, i couldn't hold back and had to snap a few shots of the new bride and groom. enjoy!
