Since the day Annie inquired with us, we clicked immediately. She and Ryan are such a fun, down to earth, loving couple and we truly enjoyed every second of working with them over the past year! We found out we were pregnant with our second baby several months after they booked, and that my due date was just 10 days before their wedding day! Both Annie and Ryan, along with their families, were so gracious and supportive and completely trusted us to take care of them on their big day – regardless if we were able to be there or if we had to send back up in our place!
I am a PLANNER. I like to have plans A, B, and C for any given situation – so Michael and I made sure we had plenty of backup available for October 6th. The original plan was to have a third shooter with us, and someone “on call” if we had to leave mid-wedding, but as we got closer we ended up deciding to bring two shooters and an assistant with us no matter what. So we were a team of FIVE! I’m so glad we made that decision – it made a world of difference, especially since this pregnancy was much different (read: uncomfortable) than Greyson’s was!
In the end, we’re so glad baby boy stayed put last weekend and we were able to be there for Ryan + Annie. It was a truly magical, beautiful day – I think all that Annie dreamed it would be! We had sunshine all day long but it wasn’t miserably hot, and from our standpoint, everything went off without a hitch!
Annie + Ryan – we are so excited for you as you start this new adventure together. Thank you for trusting us to capture such special moments for you! We love you both!
The ceremony took place under spanish moss covered oaks, and the sun provided the dreamiest light! Such a perfect backdrop.
As Annie appeared at the end of the aisle, Ryan’s mom turned to watch his reaction to seeing his beautiful bride! So sweet!And Ryan + Annie’s reactions to seeing each other were adorable – so much joy!
