A little while ago Kristin and I were able to be apart of Erin's (the wonderful bride featured in this blog) sister's wedding day (taking photos of course). It is pretty common for a family member or friend to see our work from one wedding and ask us to be apart of their special day as well. The humorous part about this situation is that no one could recognize me from the previous wedding. I used to sport a pretty huge beard, and now that I am well trimmed it appears that I look a lot different. All funniness aside, Erin and Tim had a wonderful day. The weather was nice and toasty (about as hot as I can remember), yet not overwhelming. Everyone was full of joy. Even though our entire day was wonderful, the highlight for me was when the groom gave a small speech at the reception. He wanted to publicly thank God for helping him through some tough times and especially for giving him such a wonderful wife. This speech did not produce the best photos of the night (they are good though), but it gave everyone there a sense of how much Tim is grateful for his bride. This was a great thing to be a part of.
Kristin set up this next shot, and I am a big fan!
Tim and Erin love their home town - CLEVELAND!
I do not often get to do night shots, so this was a treat. At the end of the evening we went out by the water at Window's on the River and were able to catch all the lights of the city skyline. I am so glad we got to do this.
