When one of your childhood friends asks you to photograph their wedding, it's always an honor. There are so many lovely wedding vendors in Minnesota, I'm always so proud when someone chooses us. It means a lot to be there for one of the most exciting days of peoples lives. And also, I'm sorta just a hopeless romantic and I secretly (now not so secretly) cry at every wedding.
It's been an interesting year for weddings. Covid certainly has changed how we do things. These two had to make some major adjustments and had a total of 12 people at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Richmond. Nevertheless, it was an absolutely lovely day!
I mean, come onnnnn! This first look is too sweet. We love a little booty grab, too haha!
I really love when love is visual. These are real smiles, real adoration. I feel like we can learn a little bit about love from each couple we photograph. These two made their day sweet and special and will get to host their friends for a party this fall.
Some of their friends and family did a drive by congratulations parade. It was so sweet, Kia and I both cried a little. It was bittersweet.
Their families planned a sweet little surprise garage dinner reception. Full decorated with all the cute details, and even if it was a much simpler reception than what they originally planned, it was still beautiful.
I am convinced that pine trees make the best backdrops.
Congratulations, Shaunte' and Steve! Cheers to many more years!
