I know I must sound like a broken record but I am so beyond pleased with my photographer
and how the wedding pictures turned out. It is pretty stressful prior thinking about how this is one day that you will never be able to get back and if you choose the wrong person how disappointing that could be. I made the decision towards the end to have Dustin bring another photographer and I am so glad I did. Between the two of them they were able to get all those money shots from both angles. Also Tiffani
was able to get a lot of interactions with the guests so we have a lot of amazing pictures of everyone who attended. This past weekend was spent combing over all the pictures. I mean look at this gorgeous presentation!
Also to all the brides to be out there make sure you know the expectations from your photographers. I literally had Dustin and Tiffani pretty much all day. They arrived at 11am and left right when we did after 10. They didn’t charge by the hour or make us feel rushed. They devoted the whole day to us. I have heard about photographers making people “stage” things like the bouquet toss or other big moments just so they can “fit it all in” during the 4-5 hours you contract with them (that was not the case with ours). So make sure to ask those questions.
A little warning picture overload ;-) All of these can be pinned directly to pinterest if you hover in the left corner the “pin” will appear. I just ask that you give credit to Sunglow photography and Meet @ the Barre if you do. Thanks!!!
First let’s start with how gorgeous the venue was.
My mother hand beaded my wedding belt above wasn’t it insanely gorgeous??? I had such a great time getting ready with all my bridesmaids! Jesse (who did my hair/makeup and who is a dear friend) was the most calming individual…..make sure you have that one person who can do that for you.
This picture of Mark……I can’t even.
So many good ones I couldn’t choose a favorite!
The last advice I will give to the engaged is to do a first look. I was really against it in the beginning. I wanted the grand entrance with Mark seeing me the first time walking down the stairs aisle. However we got so many amazing pictures prior that I know we wouldn’t have been able to afterwards. It is just your time together. After the ceremony everyone is so excited to see you that you just won’t have the time. Also you may run out of sunlight. We were fighting against the sunlight after the ceremony to make sure we got everything in. So just my honest opinion. I am so happy we did a first look. I promise it wasn’t cheesy which was my other possible concern.
I am obsessed with these. It just reminds me of total Gatsby.

My favorite one we got together before.
There are so many pictures I want to share with y’all. I couldn’t be happier. I am thinking of submitting them to one of the big Wedding sites. Any suggestions? Which ones do you love following? Thanks for hanging in there for the heavy picture post! xoxoxoxo
