Alex & Steve : Married

One of the perks of wedding photography is being able to witness a couples story. The way they love. The way they move together. The happiness and joy of their family and friends who have surrounded and supported them up to their wedding day. And let’s not forget the couples style. Ooooooh, the style. Wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses, shoes and shirts, food and flowers. All the little details to make up a day that represents two people in love. It’s so amazing to see it all come together.

Alex and Steve did not disappoint. On any of the above. From her absolutely breathtaking bride style, to his dapper look, to setting aside time for photos at a sweet location, to throwing the craziest party I’ve ever seen. It was my first time shooting a 15 hour event and at first, I thought it would be way too much time. Turns out, it was not. Alex and Steve’s families know how to party. Like, every single guest on the dance floor, singing their hearts out to every song all night long kind of party. It was awesome! And I’m so glad that I was able to witness it first hand!

Thank you Alex and Steve for having us along! It was such a thrilling day! And thank you a million times over to Marissa Rodriguez and Simply V Photography for being my backbone that day! I love you girls tons!! xoxo {full vendor list to come!}

  • […] Alex & Steve’s uber-glam wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty today so I figured it was the perfect time to share their day after session we shot last month. I love the ease, the style and most of all, the light in these images! Very swoon-worthy! Cannot wait for more day after sessions like this coming up! Happy day!
