O my Lord have mercy do we love these two…
Nicole and Jeff are mega in love and everyone knows it. Being around them is like being around a reminder of what it looks like to be enamored with one another while being completely comfortable with who you are together. Its just right you guys. Just right. We had been looking forward to this wedding since before Nicole had even met Jeff. No lie. We adored Nicole and hoped that one day when she met the truly amazing man that she would eventually marry, that we would be there to witness and photograph it. Dreams do come true!
The wedding took place at the Metropolitan Building in Queens, NY. It’s a huge funky loft space that is what NYC wedding dreams are made of. Views of the Queens, and lots of cool old furniture were everywhere. During the ceremony, they joked about Tinder and guests coming ALL THE WAY from Manhattan, and before you knew it, they were official. Drinks, toasts, dinner, and dancing were up next… including a first dance that honestly made me cry, (which rarely happens during a first dance). Moon River and Close Slow Snuggly Dancing apparently gets me. <3
One very important detail to point out: They are BOTH redheads. Dan wanted me to point that out.

Dan and Becky went to school together and she’s kept up with us ever since we started our business in 2010. When she and Kevin got engaged, she wrote us and asked us to be a part of her wedding day. We were super excited to say the least. We love to photograph friends weddings PLUS this one was a destination wedding so we were all in.
The couple got ready at a hotel outside of Detroit and then we all headed to the historic Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, where the first Model T was conceived and developed by Henry Ford himself. Cool right? The setting was so beautiful in our photographer eyes: gorgeous natural light pouring in the huge windows, brick, steel, chipping paint. We also took them to a mural in the city just a couple blocks away. It was so incredible and colorful and a dream to photograph. We were in heaven.
The ceremony took place surrounded by historic Ford cars and family and friends. With a dozen children in her family alone, there were A LOT of family members in attendance. Afterwards, we went outside for a few more portraits and then it was time for the party. They served some out of control BBQ and Coca cola and sweet Tea for dinner along with a dessert table that I salivated after as I edited the photos weeks later. After dinner, Becky’s dad performed a song he had written for her which was beyond precious. Dancing began and it was a laid back, sweet, snuggly evening. Since it was the last wedding of the season and we were feeling spunky, we even hit up the after party at the hotel later that night. All in all…. an incredible exclamation point to end our 2016 season!

When AJ emailed us asking us if we knew any wedding photographers in Austin Texas, we politely but rather immediately replied: “US!” This response got us hooked up with a sweet wedding in the great state of Texas, getting to meet his uber sweet Texas lady, a whole lot of fun Texas and NYC folks, and a good time.
AJ got ready in his apartment while Kathryn and her ladies prepared at the Intercontinental, downtown. They met up in the lobby for an adorable “first look” in front of some beautiful windows. We love finding quiet moments in the bustle of a city, and this was one! Couple photos and family photos followed, and then we all headed to the venue a few minutes outside of town at The Union on Eighth. The ceremony took place outside and was very unique in the fact that all the guests helped in the officiating. Everyone had words to read out loud that lead the ceremony on, while a sibling did the official pronunciation. It was adorbs.
The reception was immaculately detailed and looked so pretty throughout the whole evening thanks to Kate and her team at Wild Sky Events. Well done ladies… well done. The party went on late into the evening and with a confetti exit, they newlyweds ran off! It was super fun, super cute, super happy, and just what we like to be a part of.

Remember Britt and Tony? We could not WAIT to photographÂ theirÂ wedding, and it completely surpassed ourÂ expectations. Being a witness toÂ theirÂ marriage was such a special event for us, because you can feel theÂ electricÂ love between them when you are inÂ theirÂ presence. They were married at theÂ Most Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn, NY and then had a dancing march to the Reception at Office Ops, also in Brooklyn. The down-pouring rain moved the reception inside but the party was in no way calmed because of the change. We think you will want to be Britt and Tony’s friends… BEST friends.. after you see this wedding filled with emotion, personality, exuberance and pure sweet love!
â€œFrancie thought it was the most beautiful church in Brooklyn. It was made of old gray stone and had twin spires that rose cleanly into the sky, high above the tallest tenements. Inside, the high vaulted ceilings, narrow deepset stained-glass windows and elaborately carved altars made it a miniature cathedral.” Â -A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty SmithÂ
