My first wedding of 2021! Leah + I went to high school together and when she contacted me to capture her wedding, I was elated! Working with brides grooms that you have known for years is always extra special. This was my first time meeting her fiancé, Griffin. I could instantly tell that these two were absolutely perfect for each other! It is so amazing seeing how these two balance each other out, I can't think of anyone else better for Leah!
We had a short time between our winter engagement session and the wedding, so these two were already 'warmed up' and ready to go! This weekend was beautiful, considering the weeks before we had wind chills of -30. We were so thankful for the bright and sunny weather!
This was my first time shooting at Bella Sala, their bridal suite is HUGE. The owner, JP, told me they had just renovated it. I loved having a huge space to work with and one giant white wall! We ended up doing most of the family formals and portraits here throughout the day!
Time to put on the dress!
The bridal suite had so many fun chairs, so we decided to incorporate them into the images as much as we can! They even matched Leah's wedding colors!
Loved the colors in the groom suite as well!
Time for first looks - Leah wanted to do one with her dad as well!
I loved this moment with these two together.
Since Griffin + Leah did a first look we were able to get most of our portraits done before the ceremony!
These two were really good at doing spins so I asked if we could do some more dancing shots at the end of the night - so glad I did!
