During our portrait session Jay told me that I should start this blog post by saying that Jessica and Jay are the BEST wedding clients I have ever had…and to be perfectly honest, that’s not far off;) I adore all of my couples (trust me, I’m super picky about who I work with and only take a select number of wedding commissions each season so I can have clients that I LOVE). And although I will never say that I have a favorite, because I don’t—like children (or students) you don’t pick favorites—but I will say that Jessica and Jay were probably my funnest wedding of the season so far. Their bridal party was ridiculously fun…Jess promised me that they would deliver and boy did they ever. The whole bridal party was up for anything at all and I love that—oh, and there were lots of the guys shots that were amazingly funny but totally inappropriate for the blog!
Jess and Jay had one of my very favorite engagement sessions ever because it was filled with laughter, and their wedding day didn’t disappoint either. I had my girl Angela along with me for the day and we had so much fun photographing this wedding. I know that Jess is patiently—well, sort of patiently—awaiting this post and so I’ll just get onto the photos. Enjoy!
Jess and Jay chose to get married at the Abbey church on campus at St. Anslem college, where they met years ago. This is Ange’s shot and I adore the light pouring in from behind Jess and her dad.
He kept trying a serious pose for Angela but this is what she got every single time. One of my favorite things about Jay is that he laughs with his whole body, he can’t stop, and almost falls over. I flippin’ love when someone commits to laughter like that…it makes me sooooo happy:)
I really wanted to do this shot but didn’t know if it would come out so I didn’t want to make the whole bridal party pose up there if it didn’t work, but one of the girls suggested we try it and I’m so glad we did! Favorite bridal party shot:)
Then we went to The Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm for the reception and the details were awesome!
