It was a gorgeous day on the farm along the river in Willow Creek, Ca. Not too hot, just a little breeze to make it perfect. I took Haylee and Billy’s engagement session last year and knew that their wedding was going to be just as, if not more special! They have great chemistry and she totally rocks my happy girl photo dreams. Haylee has a special glow in her eyes as a bride and the way Billy looks at his bride is just priceless. Please show the couple your love by commenting on how lovely the photos are of them! I know I was in photography heaven!
I love to start out my weddings by photographing all of the details, you know the ones that the bride and groom have spent months planning.
Now onto the getting ready shots, I absolutely love getting ready shots, they’re one of my favorite parts of a wedding aside from the bride and groom portraits!
This EB Bride and Groom opted for a first look and it made my heart so happy. Doing a first look allows for those pre-wedding jitters to calm and gives more options for portraits! We had three time slots for bride and groom portraits which means Haylee and Billy are going to have TONS of photos in their gallery! The more the merrier, right?
Now on to their sweet ceremony…
I had no idea someone was tossing rice as they were talking back through the aisle. It added a fun and traditional touch and I am glad I caught it on camera!
Some bridal parties are small, some are large. Whatever you choose, just make sure you have the most special people standing next to you on your wonderful day!
What a gorgeous spot for a wedding, right?
Now lastly, my favorite of the whole day. The gorgeous bride and groom portraits! And all of the photos you see below isn’t even close to all of what Billy and Haylee are going to get in their gallery! First look people, it’s worth it!
