Jenny, James, and I met up for coffee in September of 2016 at the Starbucks around the corner from my house. They found me because a good friend of Jenny’s (and the creator of my ModFrames logo!), Vidisha, referred them to me when they were looking for a wedding photographer. As wedding photographers, a lot of us pay money for advertising, bridal shows, etc., but the best and most rewarding way to find clients is by referrals! Since they booked me 14 months before their wedding, we had plenty of time to plan their Great Falls engagement shoot and chat about wedding planning. It was such a fun experience being involved in the wedding process from basically start to finish, and when the day came, it was emotional for everyone involved (even me!).
Getting ready in a hotel is always nice, because they often comp a free room for you if you have enough guests staying there, but getting ready in a family home is just the best! It’s so touching being around a home where lots of memories have been shared and adding a new one. Once everyone was ready, it was off to the church in style–in a baller white limo!
The church had a cardboard cut-out of Pope Francis and I forgot to take a selfie with it! But their wedding was a gorgeous Catholic ceremony (co-starring Jenny’s cathedral length veil — SO PRETTY!). Then at the reception venue, spirits were literally higher (toasting downstairs before the big introduction) and the fun continued. We wrapped portraits with the bridal party and Jenny and James stuck it out and walked around a bit in the light rain with me for some beautifully colored (thanks mother nature!) portraits. As you look through this gallery you’ll see some shining examples of two my favorite types of shots: unposed/true candid photos of folks having fun and night portraits! Once or twice throughout the night, I ask my clients if they’d like to take a minute and go outside (especially if it’s cooler out and the dance floor area was getting a little warm), and just grab some photos up against the night sky. Take a look through this sneak peek and enjoy these Lodge at Little Seneca Creek wedding photos! Special shoutout to Alana, their planner, making sure that me and my DJ friend got a delicious, full plate of food, including rolls, to energize us for the party to come. 🙂
