The Wedding of Emily & Chris

Here’s another wedding Ted and I have been counting down the days to shoot!  Back when we booked Emily and Chris, we knew we were going to love them when they changed their date to Sunday so that we could photograph their wedding.  The real treat however, was having them in front of the camera!  They are so fluid and natural together – they do everything we think of before we can even suggest it!  I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that they live in Hawaii (we’re not jealous)…  Either way, it was an all around wonderful day for us, shooting with an amazing couple, perfect size bridal party, amazing family, and spending the day with our favorite videographers Brian and Susy from 2nd Mile.

There were many tears shed that morning, especially when this card from Chris came out…


These rings are pretty amazing.  Chris’s ring has wood from Hawaii built into it.


Chris getting ready with his brother Alex…


Emily took a dive to get into her dress:


This was a total photo ninja moment:


Emily and Chris are at their best when they are together, but they’re pretty gorgeous by themselves too! Check out this groom:


Emily’s parents, though they don’t live in Hawaii, have a beautiful house in Chagrin Falls.  I found a little pocket of light in this stairwell…


I think Chris was excited to get married!


It’s hard to NOT get good images with families like these:


I would gladly be adopted into this family!


I think Emily’s parents had this day and this shot in mind when they picked this AMAZING color for their house (check out those eyes! *swoon*):


This is the first and probably only time that my bride walked to the church from her home!


Seconds before walking down the aisle and Emily is cracking up with her dad!  I love it!



We only had this car for one minute, but we worked it!


I think this one of the nicest bridal party times ever!  We just walked around downtown Chagrin Falls and stopped where ever we thought was cool!  Ted’s first stop:


Is it sad that a wall like this makes me excited?


Of course, we had to stop for the classic popcorn shop shot!


I don’t think they ever get tired of each other!


There was several people including a total stranger that suggested this shot:


Chagrin Falls is one of our favorite places to shoot because of the multitude of different locations in such a small area.


On to the reception where we went straight into the first dance:


Mom and Dad looking on with happiness!  🙂


Since that day was the longest day of the year, our end of the night shot ended up being a sunset shot.  I adore that light!


I spotted this last stop at the top of a hill.  I hate making a bride hike in a wedding dress, but I think it was worth it!  LOVE this last image from Ted.  Perfect end to a perfect day!


Thanks for an amazing day guys!
