Ryan & Stacie: Happy Birthday, Happy Wedding, Happy Dance


What a great way to cap off the fall wedding season...a beautiful couple, beautiful Indian summer weather, and beautiful settings all day long. Wow. And I finally got a groom who wanted to do getting ready shots! We get to do bridal getting ready shots all the time, but the groom almost always gets left out cuz they typical show up dressed and ready. This time, while Stacie was in Krystal's capable hands and lens, I got to hang out with Ryan and tell the "groomal" story. :) (And the day before the wedding was Ryan's birthday, so he had a pretty good weekend.) Then it was off to the church in Johnsburg down in the lake country area of Illinois. It was a gorgeous old Catholic church, and an emotional ceremony. From there we headed out to the reception at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake, Illinois. We did one of my Walkabouts around the bucolic grounds and captured a ton of wonderful images.

AWESOMMMMMMMMME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love the pictures! It's even more beautiful than I remember. We had such a good time with you and Krystal. The time we spent shooting the photos flew by. I love the images you guys came up with and we really appreciate the time you spent getting them just right. They all look great, but some I can't stop looking at. You really captured our story and now our day will never be forgotten. Everything is so vivid and beautiful. I just can't stop gushing. Well done, and we can't wait to put together an album.
