Meeting Valerie and Corey was such a great experience that we were really hoping we would have the opportunity to photograph their wedding. We met them at a bridal show and then set up a personal consultation in the office. Cindy, Valerie’s mom, came in to the office as well so we could get very specific with the package pricing and timing of the day. It was our pleasure to help them decide what would be the best package option for their Friday wedding. We spoke a few times as the date grew closer to make sure that everything was going to run according to the plan. With a bit of drive time between the house where the girls were getting ready to the church to the reception we wanted to be sure that everyone would be where they needed to be on time. We have done so many weddings that we are able to help you plan each and every detail when it comes down to the photos of the day. The week of the wedding arrived and…..rain….rain…rain! That is about all that was in the forecast for the whole week. It looked like it was going to be a complete rain out so we talked about the best options to do photos if that ended up being the case. We woke up to some drizzle but it totally cleared up before we met Valerie at her house. Despite some wet grass it was an amazing day for them! Everyone seemed calm while getting ready, the girls were on top of everything – nobody was running behind at all! The boys even got in a few games of pool in the church rec room while Corey waited to see Valerie as she walked down the isle, escorted by her nephew. A ceremony followed by a beach ball send off out of the church really kept this day unique to Valerie and Corey. Family photos went smoothly just like the rest of the day so we all headed to the country club to do photos on the course before the reception. We had a great time with the wedding party that continued into the party! Congratulations to Valerie and Corey!
