Murielle + Franck = Married | Jean-Francois Wedding Highlights

July 10, 2015  •  2 Comments

Murielle booked me in August last year. I remember how nervous I was during our consultation haha. She had heard about me through her sister, and I wanted to make sure I made a good impression. I hauled all my sample albums in a suitcase and combed my hair nicely to walk in the hot sun to our meeting spot. I felt like a little girl lol. But she seemed impressed with my work and booked our whole team to do both photography and videography.

A few months later, I became pregnant. I was nervous! Would I be able to shoot this wedding 8 months pregnant?? I considered hiring another photographer to shoot for me, but I really wanted to shoot this wedding myself. And I did! Special thanks to my second shooter, Dominique, for taking my camera from me when I got a terrible foot cramp and had to sit out for 10 minutes. Thanks to my sister, Larique, for rubbing my feet as hard as she could so that I could move my toes again. And a HUUUUGE thanks to my husband, Roody, for not being angry with me for taking a job on our 4th wedding anniversary haha. I have a great team, and I thank God for amazing support.

Anyway, enough about me. Here's a summary of Murielle & Franck's gorgeous wedding.

The wedding reception took place at Aria Wedding & Banquet Facility in Prospect, CT. When we pulled up to the venue, my jaw dropped. I wasn't expecting such beauty! I was even more shocked when we got into the actual hall. Absolutely gorgeous.
