Adoring Guests – Petersen Wedding – 06.16.12

After all of the details were exchanged between AED, the bride – Kelly, and her mother – Paula at the initial day-of coordination meeting, a sigh of relief escaped both of their mouths as huge hugs were exchanged.

And, on their wedding day, Kelly was ready to go with the flow, Leif was cool and calm, and all of their guests (a lot of whom traveled to Colorado from Wyoming) couldn’t wait to see 2 people they all loved exchange vows on their perfect wedding day at Boettcher Mansion.

Once the ceremony concluded, the reception began – and the celebration truly unfolded. As I stood among Kelly and Leif’s friends, all gathered around to watch them dance their first dance, I knew that the love Kelly and Leif shared was not the only love in the room, but that their guests absolutely adored them.

Congratulations Leif and Kelly on your happily ever after!

Words from our client : “The only reason I had fun was because of you!!  I cannot thank you enough for your services and everything you did to help the day go so smoothly, whew! I will recommend you to everyone I know and meet.” ~Kelly (Bride)

“My daughter thought I was wasting money on an event planner until she met Sarah. After that initial meeting, she not only gave Sarah a big hug, but told me it was the smartest thing I had done. Sarah made us realize all of the details that allow the wedding to run smoothly and we did not have to worry – she would do it all, and she did. We all ended up relaxing and enjoying the wedding. Well worth it!” ~Paula (Mother-of-the-Bride)

Bringing Out the Best

Why do an engagement shoot?

>Well, you just got engaged, which must mean you are absolutely smitten with your fiance! So wanting to capture pictures of the two of you totally in love seems like a good idea.

>You’ll want to show off this love you share with other people, so you should probably have some high-quality pictures to do this.

>And, it is the perfect opportunity to capture your personality…

            …how you two interact with each other…

             …and who you truly are – all with a picture.

All great reasons! But, use your engagement shoot wisely. These are pictures that you will have forever.

And rather than just holding hands and looking into the camera, this is your chance to really have fun with each other.

To show that camera just who the two of you are!

To take pictures doing what you love to do, together.

Where you love to do them.

And, when you do show your pictures off, your friends and family will love to see the two of you being you.

An engagement shoot is also a great time to get to know your wedding photographer better, and to give him or her the chance to get to know you.

Most photographers include an engagement shoot in their packages for this very reason. Once they’ve been able to shoot you and your fiance in a non-traditional environment, they’ll get a better idea of the exact shots they’ll want to take during your wedding.

So, in your engagement pictures, show the world who you are.

Let loose.

And, take full advantage of your engagement shoot.

A huge thank you to This Modern Life Photographers for these fabulous pictures.

You truly bring out the best in your couples!
