I know I'm behind on blogging, but I just had to get this one up....
What a pleasure this couple was. I can honestly say that they are one of the kindest, most genuine couples that I have ever photographed. Easy going, organized and as you will see....gorgeous! Sam & Colleen decided to keep their day small and intimate, and it was just perfect. I arrived at St. Peter Lutheran Church on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Finally a gorgeous day on a weekend! I walked in to meet Colleen and her family (who were just as kind as Colleen). Colleen was stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. I know which celebrity she looks like...do you see it? After a lovely ceremony and some family photos at the church, we were headed off to Congress Park in Saratoga for some shots at the carousel. Awesome! Although finding parking during a busy concert weekend was a little tricky, we managed to get it done. It was then time to send the remaining family on their way to the reception so I could sneak the newlyweds off on their own for a few shots around the park. I love it when a couple not only looks amazing, but you can instantly feel the good vibes coming from them. Joy, happiness and love. They made each other laugh. And not because I was doing or saying something goofy to try to make them laugh. I didn't need to. It's just there. And then it was time for us to part and send them on their way to their reception. To Colleen & Sam - I hope you had a wonderful reception & honeymoon, but mostly I hope you have a wonderful lifetime of memories!! Congratulations!
I told you she was stunning!
This is one of my favorites from the day - obviously since it's on my Facebook page too!
~Pure Joy. Pure Love. Pure Happiness.~
