This weekend I shot the last of four weddings over the course of 17 months for adult siblings in the same family. First we had Steff and Ken back in November ’08. Then Brandi and Tim got married in Vegas, but had a reception that I photographed in Lancaster in May ’09. Heather and Dan tied the knot two days after Christmas. This past weekend was Emily and Travis’ turn.
I felt very sentimental about this being the last Liskey wedding, actually. After watching Travis video tape each of his sisters’ weddings and seeing Emily shine as the essential non-bridesmaid helper woman who always manages to keep things flowing behind the scenes, it was truly a joy to watch them exchange vows. It was finally their turn!
On a personal note, I love how often Travis and Emily make each other laugh. If there’s a secret ingredient that keeps Joel’s and my marriage happy and healthy, it’s laughter.
It has been a wonderful adventure, getting to know all the grandparents, favorite cousins and hilarious aunts and uncles (I’m lookin’ at you, Uncle Dennis, seen below jamming on a hot pink inflatable guitar), but it was also a privilege to get to know Emily’s side of the family as well.
They could not have been more welcoming and trusting when it came to some of my more unorthodox instructions for posing. Thank you so much! I’m glad I got to spend this time with each of you, and I hope the photos will bring you happy memories for years to come. I also gotta give a shout out to Jonnaysa Kirkham from Planned Perfection for being simply awesome.
Okay, enough chatter, check out the photos!
Last Sunday, I worked with a makeup artist and stylist for a boudoir shoot in the studio. The thing is, they all have the same name. We ended up deciding on Jenny, Jen and Genesis to avoid confusion. Jen, the stylist and generous provider
of accessories, ended up in front of the camera, too!
Here’s a sneak preview of some of my favorites!
