Boy oh boy did we have our hands full with the crew from Saturday! All I know is that Courtney and John’s bridal party had one mission and that was to party. Seriously, these guys brought it! Shoot, so did the parents! Anyway Saturday April 21st was a fun day for sure. We showed up at the Courtney’s parents home where, Jennifer McCarthy Norton of True Grace Makeup was on the scene. The music was LOUD and there was no doubt that Courtney was completed relaxed and ready to hop into her gown. Once dressed, Courtney was handed her stunning flowers from Fleurtacious Designs and we headed outside. Now it was time for a wedding and the church was filling with guests. Courtney then arrived in that monster limo and the music was still bumping! After they tied the knot we did some quick family photos in the church and made the mad dash to downtown Troy for our fun photos. We managed to dodge most of the rain although it did sprinkle a little bit. Did that stop Courtney and John? Nope! I love couples that just go for it! Once we wrapped up we all headed to the Franklin Plaza where DJ Jeffrey Scott was all types of amped up to begin playing his tunes. We also had the chance to work along side the film crew from Niki Rossi. It was a crazy fun day and I can’t thank Courtney and John enough for having us! These guys have been a pleasure all along to work with and I wish them nothing but the very best! Congrats!

You guys really captured the entire day perfectly! It will be a challenge to put our album together for sure! Thank you all so much, JP, Big Joe and Hayden!

  7. Two words – elephant chalkboard 🙂 Love that. Ok back to the rest of the blog. First of all, the bridal party are totally hamming it up for the camera! HIlarious! The first getting ready shot, I love the bridesmaid giving the thumbs up in the back.

    So great to have that kind of energy, and no doubt this was a fun wedding to shoot huh? 🙂 The grounds of the house were such a nice backdrop to start with… definitely a new shoe shot! So cool. The rings too 🙂

    Love the shot of them outside the church… the perspective there is so interesting looking. Very cool. The teaser with the Rolls… awesome. And of course who doesn’t love an alley shot. 🙂
