I've been waiting for Katie and Sean's wedding to roll around for a while now... we booked last spring and I shot their engagement pictures in the summer and had a lot of fun with them shooting around St. John Fisher (and falling over) and a pretty field. Plus it was time for our Buicks to reunite... they missed eachother! 🙂
I started out at Katie's parents' house where the girls were getting ready. Katie started crying when she first saw her dad and he asked her why she was crying and she was just like *sniff sniff* "I don't know!" *sob* It was a ridiculously sweet moment.
For pictures, we headed to a beautiful house on the lake, which was great. We did a few bridal party pictures, and I had to post this one for the guys. They had some really elaborate plans for jumping shots, and jumping high five shots. I think we can all agree on who has the best form here...
We also got some sunset shots at the hotel where the reception was, which I love! I'm going to pretend that's a beautiful old estate in the background, ala Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice, instead of a furniture store. Romantic!
Now on to the party... I told Katie at one point that was the first reception where I ever actually lost track of time! Their family and friends were really entertaining!
Shooting dancing can be really tough. Most people dance in a circle formation, which means there's a wall of backs aimed at me. Sometimes people do this thing where they make two parallel lines and then two people will dance down the middle. I LOVE this. Everyone should do this. So much easier to get great pictures!
It has been an honor being your photographer Katie and Sean! Enjoy Lake Placid!!
