Shane + Amy Married!


This is just one of those weddings that you immediatly smile when you walk into, then you leave smiling.  Then you smile for the ride home back to the studio.  Then you smile for 8 hours in Lightroom and smile a bit more in Photoshop.  And then when you are ready to blog, you start smiling again.  If I could use one word only to describe this wedding it would be really, really hard, but I would use the word "JOY" and then I would include a bunch of pictures, so you could see what I mean.  Let me start off by showing you a more romantic image from the day.


I've been excited for this wedding since these two walked into my studio about a year ago.  They told me they wouldn't mind having some rain on their wedding day because it would be different.  I also soon found out that her mom was florist, which I knew would translate to beauty.  The main thing that struck me about Shane and Amy was the connection they had with each other and the genuine appreciation and excitement they had to spend the rest of their lives with each other.  It's a beautiful thing to behold.

So here is the setting moments before the ceremony.

While Amy was getting ready, the guys were playing some cards.  Shane seemed to be taking everyone's tees, at first

And some of these guys were having a really good time.

Others were having a hard time, and an unlikely suspect managed to win in the end.

On a sidenote, I was pleasantly surprised to hear them playing Mumford and Sons and Griffin House, two of my favorite songmakers.  So that's what I listened to while processing the pictures.

Next, we stepped outside with the girls.

How about the shoes?!

And the bride...

And of course, the bouquet...

And my favorite of the day (at this moment)

And here is a shot from Nelli being all stealthy with her long lens.  Love it.

After capturing the natural beauty of the girls and especially Amy, the guys were ready to have some fun taking photos.  We started off with this...  (Cleveland:)

Shots like this can be risky...

Nelli said these were the cutest kids she's seen coming down the aisle.  I couldn't argue against that.

So this beautiful sunny outdoor ceremony had a bit of a surprise in store - coming with the clouds.


And about the time these little one got there feet inside, the rain began to pour.

Just in time!

It's hard to choose my favorite, but this next one might be it.  It says something about Shane and Amy.  They were glowing.  They are full of light.  They make everyone around them a happier.

Then, after about twenty blissfully rainy minutes, the sun came back to us.


Congrats Shane and Amy!  It's been a privelege to get to know you and your families.  You have a beautiful future ahead of you.

I am of course a little biased as my sister was the bride... but words cannot describe the pure beauty captured in the photography. Jesse and Nelli are the sweetest, most kind people and it was a pleasure sharing the day with them. I could never pick my favorite photo because they all tell a story that we will re-live every time we look at them. Amy and Shane kept raving about their photographers and said it was the most important to them because they appreciate the art. Jesse and Nelli are truly lovely people with a natural gift. Love to all of you!! xoxo

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! p.s. Our recommendations have already started, but I think sending this blog out will speak for itself ;) \n\nLots of love,\nS & A
