Mike and Andrea are the kind of people that you instantly relax around. Our job is an amazing but nerve-wracking gig sometimes and couples like Mike & Andrea make us wonder what we ever worry about...our couples rock!
These two have been together forever...and I mean forever...and they just radiated love and happiness all evening. They almost made me totally forget that just before the bride walked down the aisle, my Canon bit the dust.
See that? That was my last frame...but it is one of my favorites this year. Andrea's face is pure excitement!
One of the many reasons James and I come as a package deal (aside from his obvious decorative qualities) is for situations like this. James didn't miss a step taking over and I became the light technician for the event. We had a great time collaborating on images and I got my camera back a couple of weeks later with a brand new shutter!
Formals were a blast with this crowd.
The sun was high, unfiltered and hot but a little collaboration (possibly a little inner-cursing) and a lot of battery power bent it to our mighty will and gave us this dramatic, almost cinematic light.
Did I mention they were fun?
The reception was wild, Mike and Andrea's friends waited a long time for that wedding and they got a rockstar welcome as the golden sun lit up the entire reception room.
James took this while laying in a spilled drink on the floor. My guy has dedication!
Some couples just have it...and James and I are lucky that they take us along for the ride!
