I’ve been so excited about Katie and Monroe’s wedding since the day we met. With the great team of vendors Katie and her mom Susan put together, the GORGEOUS church and reception venue AND bride and groom…..how could we go wrong?!
It was so much fun working with Katie, Monroe and Susan from the engagement session through the wedding day. Katie and Monroe have just settled into their new home in Dallas. We will miss them!
Katie and Monroe showed me their gorgeous church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, during their engagement session back in the spring. It turned out that we were very restricted in terms of our shooting positions on the wedding day, so my second shooter, Kathy Blanchard, and I showed up a little early and got some detail shots of the empty church.
Kathy made this cool portrait of Monroe before the ceremony. Despite the fact that the church is 200 years old, it has some contemporary architectural elements and furnishings which we just loved!
Jo’s signature name tags for the ladies.
This could be an award winner (by Kathy!) Katie and her dad’s faces are obscured by the staircase which just exposes the crucial elements; her excited grin and tight grip on dad’s hand!
I have to say I am quite proud of our wedding party shot on the altar….not an easy feat considering the HUGE wedding party and time crunch to get to the reception!
The architecture, lighting and decor at the Congressional Country Club is just exquisite. We loved capturing all the details and the warm glow of the room.
Kathy and I both shot the first dance with available light; Kathy’s from the balcony…
and mine from the dance floor.
The man behind the music…Chris Laich. NO PHOTOS, PLEASE!!!
Such a happy couple, and a fabulous shot by Kathy!
I was obsessed with my beautiful bride, still doing portraits of her at 11 o’clock at night!
