Shawn and Lora have been one of our favorite couples to photograph since their engagement session a year before their wedding, when they both turned out to be supermodels in the front of the camera. Rarely are couples matched in their ability to be in front of the camera as these two are. We must have been very lucky last October because this was yet another October day with perfect mid 70s temperature and beautiful fall leaves. The bridal party was a rowdy bunch just oozing with personality. All we had to do was point the camera in their direction and got great photos! It was our first wedding at Pine Ridge Country Club and we were very impressed with the ballroom; beautiful all on its own with towering ceilings and natural light pouring in through massive windows. Once the sun set they kicked it up a notch with uplighting on the walls making it even more dramatic. In tune with the season, Lora had caramel apples as favors for all the guests and they were delicious! Shawn’s brother Dallas had the most epic best man speech ever – having almost every woman in the room bring their “key to Shawn’s place” up and drop it on the head table now that he was officially taken. The finale came with Grandma being the last one to dramatically relinquish her key on the table. It was the first time I wished I was holding a video camera instead.
