Carly & Justin’s Photography Day and Reception

Last January we met Carly at a bridal show downtown and booked her wedding for Sweetest Day, October 18.  A couple months later, Carly called and let me know that they had decided to move the wedding part up a few months, but they still wanted us for their original date to photograph their reception.  It was at that time that the idea began to form about having a “photography day” – no ceremony, no bridal party, no time restrictions – just all day with a bride and groom.  Needless to say, this was the day we were crossing our fingers the most for good weather.  It didn’t disappoint!  We drove all around downtown and a couple other places just grabbing whatever we felt like getting!  I love these guys in front of the camera because I honestly don’t think they know how gorgeous they are.  Especially Carly.  Carly is the kind of girl who thinks she’s just a normal-looking person who photographs like a movie star.  Justin also is pretty awesome.  The way he encourages and loves on Carly secured his place in my heart forever.  Enough talk though – let’s get to the good stuff!

I flip out for this image.  I love the windblown hair, the movement in her legs, and most of all her Hollywood-esque expression!

I make over Carly so much because she is so unassuming.  I don’t want anyone to think I’m leaving Justin out though!  Justin is famous for always taking good pictures no matter what.  I’m happy to report that it isn’t simply a rumor – the trend carried over to our photos as well!

We love bridal parties, but I can’t lie and say we weren’t happy to have a weekend with just a bride and groom!

The bridge is one of our favorite stops downtown lately, I love the depth of field that is emphasized with the rows of beams.

I think she is just fabulously gorgeous.

After all day of shooting the photographer’s dream wedding day, it was time to get back to a little normalcy with a real (beautiful) reception.

Canterbury Golf Club has one of the classiest reception rooms I have ever seen.

After snapping a few formals, we ran outside to make use of the sunset light right before it disappeared.  I think these are some of my favorites from the entire day.

And one last shot from the first dance…
