Rose + Ralph [Sneak Peek] \\ Wedding at Calvin Reformed Church, Norwalk, CT

May 24, 2014  •  12 Comments

I met Rose through a mutual friend. Roody and I have been attending her Bible Study sessions since the fall of 2012. Ralph joined us last year. When I heard that they were getting married, I was so happy for them! They hired me to be their photographer, and I couldn't be more honored.

Every time I go to my mother's house after an event, I say, "These are the BEST photos I've ever taken." And I'm not lying. She thinks I'm crazy, but I told her that if I came over and I didn't say that, something's wrong--I'm not growing in my craft.

I know I'm talking a lot for just a sneak peek blog post, but I can't help it--I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS WEDDING BECAUSE THEY ARE MY FRIENDS!! :)

My photographer friend asked me who my favorite photographer is. I didn't have a proper answer, so I had to think about it. A few hours later, I knew my answer: Susan Stripling. All of these bridal prep photos were taken with her in mind. I'm kind of proud of myself hehe :D

I was excited to see what would happen during the ceremony because the bride and groom are devout Christians. Jesus Christ was all over this union, and that makes me sooooo happy.

I'm so grateful that the rain held out for us. I'd been stalking The Weather Channel App for days. It wasn't supposed to rain until 2:45 PM. We started the bridal portraits at 2:00 PM and the weather was perfect.
