I've been photographing Elizabeth & Justin for about 5 years and it's been surreal to watch them evolve and relationship grow over the years. It reminds me so much of my beginning years with my own husband. The day has finally come that they seal the deal...and it was a perfect day.
Started off with a breakfast of champions...
...and a happy bride, hanging out with all her girls.
And a diamond is forever...so thought it was fitting to have a timeless creature display the bling.
Here was a tiny hiccup of the day...some of the boys didn't get black socks in their tux bag.
First time Justin got to see his beautiful bride that day.
Elizabeth being entertained by her gals.
It's not if you win or lose...it's how you play the game.
How perfect is this pic?! Elizabeth and most of her friends were cheerleaders all through school...and Justin in his friends were on the football team. They got their own team going on.
This was hysterical in the making.
Poor buddy.....literally. hehehe
I think this has got to be one of my largest attended weddings yet. This is only a picture of the sanctuary, there was a whole room off to the side of more guests...and when we pulled up to the reception, the parking lot was overloaded.
I had to put this one in. During the ceremony they had a slideshow of some of their pictures together from over the years. I think most of them were taken by me....ME!!!!! YIPPIE! Although, it makes me blush a little to look back at some of my work from years and years ago...because...well...let's face it, I've gotten better. Between technology changing, software upgrades, and ...ummmm...gained experience...it's nice that Elizabeth had such a long engagement...because now she has me at my best. WAHOOO!
This is the look of "OOPS!"...Elizabeth went a little crazy with the limo buttons. At one point the limo driver unexpectedly pulled over and came back to ask what we needed. Apparently she pushed the "service" button.
Several good dancers at this wedding...here are two featured ones.
This guy can bust a move!
The lovely Stony Point Hall. This is my 3rd or 4th time to photograph out there and it has become even more popular since the last time out. I've heard from the grapevine that they only have 2 weekends in 2009 left available and are almost half booked up for 2010. WOW! Saturday was their 1 year anniversary of being in business. Congrats to them!
Elizabeth...you know I love you. I'm so glad you and Justin had such a great day. You really deserved it! I wish you both a long and happy life together.
