Lindsey and Kenyon got married on July 30th at McLain State Park. It was a beautiful day and the sand was HOT!
It's funny how I was connected with Lindsey to shoot her wedding. Her and Kenyon are both talented ceramicists, and I actually knew of her from a show she did at Finlandia University. One day about two weeks prior to their wedding I was sitting at 5th and Elm, my absolute favorite coffee shop, and was called over by Lindsey and a co-worker (who are baristas there and know me as a regular customer) to ask if I was available! Of course I agreed, and I even got to trade a portion of my fee for a couple of Kenyon's ceramic mugs! You never know just how you'll be connected with clients, so take any networking opportunity you get. :)
Now on to the images of their joyful wedding day.
Lovely yet simple details.
I've noticed a bubble trend at the weddings I've shot or assisted with this past summer!
Like I said, the sand was SO HOT! Kenyon was a gentleman and offered his bride a piggy back ride down to cool waters of Lake Superior!
Lindsey wore her mother's wedding dress from the 1970's... Love!
And then up to the forest for a few more portraits.
The forest is my favorite place to take photos because I LOVE the dark green tones.
When I took them away from the crowd for a few moments, Lindsey and Kenyon commented on how nice it was to get away and relax with each other, even if it's just for a few minutes. I highly recommend that all couples do this!
Back to their guests!
Grandma's smile. :)
These little girls found both a butterfly and a miniature inchworm to take care of.
This next one makes me sooooo happyyyyyy! :) It's my goal to capture as many in-between moments as I can, and this is easily one of my favorites I've ever been able to snap really quickly.
Signing the official documents!
