One of my favorite parts of photographing a wedding is being in the room with the bride, mom and bridesmaids before the ceremony begins. The getting ready part. The part where every woman who loves this one woman so much works together to make her the most beautiful bride, to make her into pure gorgeousness for the man who loves her most. Every one of these women works tirelessly with nimble fingers and pure words of wisdom. Somehow their fingers know just how to lace up the back of the dress or to place the veil just right, maybe because they've done it numerous times before and maybe just from that womanly instinct. Perhaps they're thinking back on their own weddings and how all the women they loved most in their lives cooperated to make them into a beautiful bride, or maybe they're dreaming of the day yet to come and how this gorgeous woman will be there in that room to lace up the backs of their gowns. They share advice and give comfort that the wedding will go off without a hitch. They know just the right words and just the right times to laugh. And just the right time to let go and watch her walk to her groom.

What's that you say? You didn't get enough of the engagement photos of Robbie and Josh? You're in luck! Here's the second batch comin' right up!
The thing I just love about these photos is that the colors they wore, the color of their eyes and the vibrancy of the location colors just come together and really POP! Not to mention the obvious point that they are so perfect together!
Robbie and Josh.
They have been one of my very favorite couples to photograph, partly because they are such a really comfortable couple to be around and very nice, but they are GORGEOUS together. When I scrambled home after the shoot to get the photos off my camera, I just kept saying, "Wow! I love that shot!" This is the first location that we used (there were too many favorites from the entire shoot to put them all in one blog post). Enjoy!
There's still more to come....can you believe it?? More gorgeousness ahead!
