Valerie and Raj Wedding

Weddings and Families

Valerie and Raj are two fun loving people! Valerie is bubbly and fun and Raj loves to laugh and crack jokes. Their personalities are really a perfect match. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true! They had so much excitement to be together and to be married. That level of enthusiasm is contagious and filled me immediately upon talking with them for the first time.

They were so willing to trust me to do what I do best. That’s always refreshing and makes my job easier! It lets me make sure their day is 100% successful.

They decided to do their entire day, from getting ready through reception, all at one location, The Olde Mill Inn. That makes it a bit easier on the guests as well as leaves more time for photos and festivities!

It’s always fun to use available light and find interesting patterns!

Raj looking dapper!

How cute is she? 

We had perfect fall weather!

Their vows were perfectly matched to their personalities and relationship.

During the reception they of course had to break out the chicken dance!

Love moments like these with Raj and Valerie’s dad!

I try to do some kind of night shot and although it was cold, we managed to find a cute little spot behind the venue. I typically will scout and set up the shot before I bring my couples out. I want them to get every ounce of reception and family time as they can!

Thanks to my other shooters, Jess and Meredith.
