Rob & Paige

Intimate backyard weddings are incredibly sentimental. For Rob and Paige, being among closest family and friends was how they wanted to celebrate their new journey together as husband and wife.

Below are just a few of my moments! Rob and Paige- I wish you all the best!

Their ceremony was in April and as we all know, April weather can be unpredictable. However, mother nature blessed them with the best April weather we had that month. The rain from a few days prior gave the earth and trees a pop of color and there was even a hint of warmth in the air!

While Rob was getting ready, we took the opportunity for a few son and mother portraits. Can we please take a look at his adorable red shoes?!

Soon after came the first look and it was perfect. Rob made his way towards the back of the yard and there was Paige. Absolutely stunning!

Documenting the Day

At any wedding there is always a few minutes of downtime before the ceremony starts. I love to find pockets of interesting things that could be happening with family and friends. Below is Paige’s grandfather who immediately saw me with the camera. ha!

“Hey, I see you! How much do I owe you for the photo?”  “You can pay me in cough drops.” (Just prior to that he was looking for cough drops in his pocket).  We had a good laugh. :)

He thought Paige looked so beautiful. It brought him to tears- Yup, I cried too.

I like to scan the area where guests are seated. This was moments before Paige walked down the aisle. You can see the couple are holding hands and it made me want to know more about their own love story.

This little one kept her eye on me. Almost like, I recognize everyone but you. She was highly suspicious of me and my camera. Ha!

It’s funny because I had the opportunity of photographing them Rob and Paige again, but at a CrossFit competition!! I had no idea they would be there and I screamed a little inside when I found out I would get to photograph them doing lifting things. Yes, I get to photograph some bad ass couples!

Rob and Paige, I wish you many wonderful memories and great PR’s in the gym!
