I love that we never know how our couples will find us.
Yep-When we boarded our safari truck to photograph Jenna and Liam’s wedding portraits on the savannah, I was seated by Krista, the cast member assigned to our group. We made small talk on the brief ride to and from the savannah, and I found out Krista was newly engaged and likely planning a wedding up north. As I was getting off the truck, she asked for our card, and I assumed we’d never see each other again.
Just a couple months later and we got an email from Krista saying she and her fiance, Kenny, would be eloping at the Lake County Courthouse and wanted some portraits after their ceremony. There’s such a special energy associated with elopements and they’re my favorite thing to photograph, and always make me think of our wedding day. <3
Krista and Kenny, we had a wonderful time getting to know you both and wish you the happiest ever after! :)
Looks like it’s time to wrap up Lindsay and Jackie’s wedding week!
This is Bill, the organist at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion and one of our favorite faces of the DFTW team! :)
I love that their four legged kids were represented at the wedding. :)
Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite. This one has me itching to give our website galleries a serious overhaul this year.
Their reception was at Ariel’s.
Nate couldn’t remember their first dance song, but it looked happy! :)
Waaaaaah I am miiiiiissing! :(
Hands down our favorite Disney DJ, Charles Miles. Book him, Root DisBrides! <3
And while I layed in a hospital bed catching up on Girl Meets World, Nate photographed Lindsay and Jackie’s dessert party solo and did AMAZING. If I didn’t love shooting these events so often, I’d make Nate go on his own from now on! :)
You. Guys. <3
Lindsay and Jackie, we’re so excited to have you in our little Root Photography family! Hope to see you again soon!! :)
Continued from Lindsay and Jackie’s Engagement Session. <3
As you may remember from Lindsay and Jackie’s preview post, this wedding took place while I was in the hospital with a gallbladder attack. In nearly 10 years, this was the second wedding I ever missed! :( I think before we even called our parents, we were emailing Kim to see if she could step in while I was unavailable! Of course I’m super bummed I missed their day, but Nathanial did some of his best work and knowing Kim was there to help him out was the biggest relief!
LOVED. THEIR. FIRST. LOOK!!!
Today is one of those silly milestones that might not seem like much, but it’s a pretty big deal for me.
This is my 1000th blog post. 1000, you guys!!
We wanted to do something fun to commemorate it, so here we go! Years ago we did a session giveaway and loved the response. It actually led us to meeting one of our favorite families, one of the daughters eventually becoming our wedding assistant for a while! :)
