Kelly and Bobby

November 28, 2017

When we work with families for a second or even third time it makes the wedding day so much fun! Kelly got engaged and then shortly after saw us at a bridal show. We had done her brother’s wedding and also a cousin. She secured the date with us right on the spot because October is so popular she didn’t want to take the chance of not having us photograph the wedding. As the date approached she sent over a few photo ideas but really knew that we would get what she wanted since we knew the family and had talked during the engagement session. The session gave us a chance to meet Bobby as well as see how the two of them interact – which is amazing! The morning of the wedding we went to the hotel Kelly was getting ready. Lots of laughs as the girls relaxed with mimosas and breakfast. We then headed to the church where we started with photos of the boys and knew it was going to be a fun day. They were quite a great group of boys that were going to add to the fun group of girls we had already been photographing. Bobby’s family was equally as excited and ready to have a good time. A traditional ceremony followed by a dove release started off the photos for the afternoon. The party bus headed to the arch, with a 40 minute drive to get there the wedding party was ready to roll when we arrived! These shots along with the rest of the park photos were filled with personality. That really makes our job easier because all we have to do is take photos, not much prying to “act silly, give me some cheers, pose like this, etc” Of course we pointed them in the right direction but the final result was all them. They are going to have a hard time choosing the final images. As we expected the reception was filled with celebration when first Kelly’s brother quoted their father “she’s not much but she’s all I got” Everyone knew he was there with us and ready to party. Yep, party is exactly what this group did – the dance floor was packed all night. Such great energy and love for Kelly and Bobby. A great way to start a happily ever after together!
