It was such an honor to photograph Amy & Michael’s Wedding at St. Edward’s in Waterloo a couple of weeks ago! Amy & Mike have such an honest, pure kind of love for each other along with completely complementing personalities.
(They really made my job as a photographer super easy!)
Amy’s sister first reached out to me last fall – and one line in particular really stuck out to me: “I’m hoping to find someone who can beautifully capture their spirit”. That isn’t always an easy thing to do, but I think because they love so fully and openly, it was impossible *not* to capture the spirit they naturally radiate.
From the groom: “I’ve been fortunate enough to be in several weddings of close friends and my brothers. The most common advice from married friends we received leading up to our wedding was to stop and enjoy the day, because it goes by SO fast. This is SO true. It goes from having breakfast with your wedding party to having your first dance as a married couple. Thankfully, Chelsea and Gabi did an amazing job capturing the formal and the candid moments. It allows us to relive those feelings we experienced on our wedding day. Chelsea is so incredibly talented, sweet and professional. Don’t forget to request the frog camera!”
Amy & Mike, thank you both SO MUCH for entrusting me to photograph your day! I had an amazing time with you all and cannot thank you enough!
