bethany + chris

This is a very personal post for me, as I was very close to almost everyone involved in Chris and Bethany's wedding. I grew up across the street from Bethany and her family was (and still is) like my 2nd family. Chris, of course, is in Shawn's band and I've enjoyed actually getting to know him since we graduated high school together.

I never would have imagined that these two would be married one day, but it was so awesome to get to experience God shaping their relationship up until this day. Shanna second shot for me, and we had a great time capturing everything.

There are quite a few images in this post, but they're worth it! Enjoy!

Yes I know, she is absolutely gorgeous...

When I saw this giraffe, I couldn't help myself! Haha. Check out Chris's white ceramic ring- pretty cool!

One of my faves of Shanna's shots:

They chose to see each other before the ceremony, which was so neat. Not only did it allow a whole lot more time (and therefore creativity) for portraits, they were able to have a moment alone together, something which is important on the day you marry someone!

He cried, and it was precious.

We took the bridal party over to this old white house nearby the church, and although I loved the color image, I just couldn't get over this old vintage style.

I don't always get to shoot images like this! Here's my tribute to everything 80's, including the Vans that the guys are wearing:

After the ceremony, Chris and Bethany had a suprise for her mom. In this image she's reading a note from her husband asking her to renew their wedding vows. BB handed her mom the bouquet and sent her down the aisle!

Mariana caught the bouquet- we call her our Brazilian sister. Mari has lived with my parents off and on over the past few years and she is one awesome volleyball player!
