My career offers a lot of opportunity to work with couples I don’t know, other than by means of photographing their wedding… and then there are weddings like this one. Kristen, the bride, and my wife, Trisha, work together, so this wedding was one where I knew a lot of the people involved. That makes it special to me. Plus, my wife was a bridesmaid, so that was a new adventure for me as well.
Jeff is a local chef with some serious skills. If you’ve not had his food, I’d recommend you look him up and try his amazing creations. Plus, he has to be one of the coolest guys you’ll ever meet.
Kristen and Jeff were married on the banks of the White River on a steamy Saturday evening at the end of May. Having lived here since 1995, the White River is one of my favorite features of this area. I’ve spent countless hours in the water, waist deep, fishing for Rainbow trout and Brown trout. By having such a history with the river, I love seeing it used as the backdrop for a wedding. A cool contrast compared to how I was originally introduced to the river
These guys never slowed down. From the rehearsal dinner the night before, right on to the end of my night with them, the energy was off the charts. Jeff’s groomsmen know how to have a good time, but I’d be lying if I said they weren’t outdone by the ladies. It was fun keeping up with their pace and spirit.
So it goes without saying that Kristen made such a gorgeous bride. Her dress was elegant and was the perfect gown for her… she wore it well. Oh, and Jeff… headband king. That was awesome.
I hope you enjoy a glimpse into their wedding day. Enjoy!
