Holly and Seth were a referral from my good friend April. Holly knew that she wanted quality photos and loved my work! We met up at a local cupcake shop to chat over all the details of her wedding day, and to make sure we would be a good fit. Her fiance was at work, so she brought her sister with her to the consultation. I am no stranger to meeting couples on their wedding day, but when I met Seth I had a little feeling of deja vu! I knew I didn’t know him, but he looked so familiar. After a few moments, I finally figured out that he looked like the younger brother of a guy I dated in high school! They could be doppelgangers!
Bride and Groom Portraits
They originally planned to get married in a beautiful barn, but had some things come up and chose to get married in their church house instead. Since they were married in a chapel, Holly knew she wanted to plan their bride and groom portraits for another location. Timing was tight, but we had about an hour to sneak off for photos. We drove about 10 minutes down the road to these two amazing spots I had discovered two years prior. I had a lot of fun with them as they danced, twirled, and made funny faces. They aren’t huge on PDA so we literally missed capturing their first kiss. During the bride and groom portraits, I made them get all mushy for a few and just had fun with the rest. These two little nooks are some of my favorite locations in Rigby to photograph couples!
The newly married couple were ruthless when it came to their cake smash! I have only had one other couple get so much cake on their faces! It was hysterical watching them go after each other and shove cake everywhere. For this very reason I highly suggest that the cutting of the cake happens after everything else – the bride and groom portraits, dancing, the bouquet and garter toss, etc. This way the bride does not have to worry about her makeup, hair, and dress as much!
