On March 19, I had the honor of second shooting for Melissa Brandman at Angela and Greg’s wedding. I was thrilled to be on the team for this wedding, as it took place at my church and this was the first wedding I’d be to there! Having met Angela before, I knew her to be a wonderful woman with a beautiful heart and I knew her groom would be the same.
Second shooting is a lot of fun for me…not only do I get to get different shots and some unique angles (sometimes they work…sometimes, not so much), but I usually get to spend the morning with the guys.
That morning, I walked into a house that was all about football, razzing, and beer. The guys were hilarious and I knew this would be a great day. Greg LITERALLY could not stop smiling, which was truly charming. I hope someday my future groom is the same way!
Greg’s big brother helping him out with the cuff links. What a cool moment between the dudes!
Greg’s dad took a moment to help his son out/threaten him a little. ; )
I always have to get a Reservoir Dogs shot. : )
Before the first look, the gorgeous bride was calm and serene!
LOVED their first look!!! They laughed, cried, hugged, and smooched. It was so special!
Melissa Brandman is a killer photographer (and great friend!) whose clients just love her!
As it was time to prepare for the ceremony, the guys and girls split up for some relaxation and prayer. It was really cool to be a fly on the wall and Eric Heard (on staff at Mariners) prepared everyone’s hearts for the ceremony.
Angela was so prepared and on top of all of the details for her special day. Her dear friend Joy handed out programs and tissues to their loved ones!
Not a Miss for much longer!
Not having attended a wedding at my church previously, I had no idea that the bride and groom immediately go around to the front of the chapel and ring the bell themselves. I LOVED this!!!
At the reception, I knew a handful of people already. This is my friend Mark. He dared me to take a picture of him like this. I did…and now I’m posting it. I’m sure he’ll LOVE it. : )
The sweet flower girl and her mom dancing outside of the reception!
These two have MOVES!
The brides sister was her Matron of Honor. I loved catching her sign the marriage certificate!
Melissa showed a lot of fun shots from the reception and I have to include my favorite. This crowd knows how to have a good time and I had a hard time not joining them on the dance floor!!!
Angela and Greg, may God bless you with a lifetime of love and happiness! Your day was really special and I enjoyed being a part of your team. XOXO!
And thanks to Melissa for having me along once again!
