I have absolutely been dying to share this Lafayette Wedding! Reason 1: because it was definitely one of the best receptions I’ve ever attended! Shannon & Brody have a TON of friends and they all DANCED all night long!!! With the glow sticks and a fantastic DJ I didn’t think the fun would ever end! I can’t even explain how many hilarious dancing pictures I shot. Believe me this blog is only the BEST of the best! Reason 2: because Shannon & Brody are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. I felt much more like a close friend than a photographer throughout this process with them. They had such a joyous wedding and had a blast at their reception!! Capturing their happiness was such a privilege for me! One of my favorite moments of the day was when Shannon’s brother came up to see her before the ceremony. He was dressed in his uniform and she had never looked more beautiful! It was a beautiful unplanned emotional moment for both of them! I’m just so glad I was standing in the perfect place to capture their sweet sibling love! Choosing favorites for the post was SOOOOO hard but here area few dozen (or hundred) of my favorites :) I hope you enjoy this sweet couple and their fantastic friends & family!!!
