Rachel + Larry


This Saturday morning spent shooting was pretty amazing because I got to meet two of the sweetest lovebirds on the planet! Seriously though, I could NOT get enough of how sweet they were together!

When Larry turned around and saw his bride for the first time on their wedding day, he almost cried! Their first look was so precious and it’s moments like these that make me remember everyday why I love my job so much. Being able to capture sweet moments like that are what keep my heart going everyday.

The day went on and so did the party – these two danced until they couldn’t dance anymore. And they even had a MONEY DANCE! I had never heard of that before and it was truly hilarious! Their friends and family tied money onto their bodies to pay for a dance with the bride and groom! This money helped pay for their honeymoon – what a great idea!Now, I normally don’t interrupt a great set of images, but I have to explain the next two pictures of their feet: The maid of honor for the day gave the most hilarious speech ever and made it apparent to everyone on how penguins mate. Apparently, the male penguin has to present the female penguin with a pebble and she has to either accept it or reject it. The best part? They do it with their feet, just like Rachel & Larry did.
