I love me some Emily. After scrolling through this blog post you will too, I guarantee it!  Emily is one of the most laid-back and sweetest brides I’ve ever photographed.

I have a general life rule: when you have a nice thought, share it, otherwise it goes to waste!  I think that Emily has the same life rule… she loves her people big and tells them as often as she can.

She got ready in her childhood bedroom where Emily’s momma zipped her into her dress.

I try to incorporate the momma’s as much as they’ll let me. 😉 That’s one of the difference between 23-year-old-wedding-photographer Bobbi and 37-year-old-wedding-photographer Bobbi: understanding the importance of our families.

My non-photographer friends look at this and say, “what a beautiful church with so much color!” My fellow photographers look at this image and think, “that church, while beautiful, is a white balancing challenge!”

….well that was my thought at least. 😉 The solution: embrace it! I pride myself in consistent skin tones… but in a situation like this, when skin tones are lit by very colorful lights, we just make it look exactly like the way it looked in person. 😀

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Bryan, how much you adore your bride is how every groom should be on their wedding day!

Her dress is a classic and perfectly Emily. Very Audrey Hepburn!

Megan and I shoot a lot of weddings on the road in places we’ve never been before; so we always location scout the day before. We were proud of what we found!

Don't lose your bride at the reception - somebody told me this beforehand and it was key!
