Ending Strong: Michelle & Shawn

Last month I finished my final wedding for the year. I truly could not have asked for a better family to end with. Do you ever meet people and there is just an instant familiarity with them? That is how Michelle and Shawn were. I jumped right into their day with them and they were just the most beautiful, fun souls.

The beach weddings I shoot are very casual and I actually only shoot for as little as 1 hour to 4 hours tops. This was actually my first wedding that I was able to spend time with the bride, her family, and friends before the ceremony. It was hardly work because they were such a good time!

Some highlights of the day include Michelle and her stellar bridesmaids and Mom in general (simply so beautiful and easy to shoot), Shawn not being able to look at Michelle when she walked toward him (seriously heart melting) and also when Shawn leaned in for a kiss mid ceremony. Please enjoy some snippets of their day. Also when I say snippets I mean a ton. I need to be realistic with myself and just post entire albums. I can’t choose between moments! Congratulations Michelle and Shawn!

*In British Accent “James bring around the car.” I asked who James was and she said I don’t know.

Shawn was just staring at Michelle and you could tell he wanted to kiss her. He eventually gave in.

I was about to pack up and then these 3 generations were having a moment together. Of course I had to bring my camera back out
