Andres and Jessica. Perfect.
I am soooo pleased to have been invited as a guest and as the photographer of Andres and Jessica’s wedding. I became friends with Andres and Jessica when I first met them for their engagement session (Quick reminder: Engagement Photos!) almost a year ago. SOMEHOW I managed to not know this sweet couple although they know EVERYONE I know, including my boyfriend. What the heck. I feel like I missed out on a great friendship all these years! But since we know all of the same peeps, it made this wedding one of the most fun to shoot. What a blast!!!
Well, lets get started! This is the story of Andres and Jessica’s wedding day… Here we go!
The venue was the Doubletree in Charlotte, NC. All of the folks here were so accommodating and helpful. Big ups to the wedding planner (someone please remind me of her name?) for this wedding.. She killed it! I know that wedding planning is no easy task, and I totally respect those who can handle the job!
The wedding is getting close!
HOW FREAKING AMAZING IS THIS DRESS??
I want one just like it for my wedding! Hey Jess, let me get that! Haha!
While Jess and I were waiting for the ceremony, we knocked out some quick bridal shots. Doesn’t she look gorgeous? Thanks Genna Poletti Makeup Artistry for the insanely stunning makeup. I know you made Jessica and the girls extremely happy.
Now it’s time to go! It’s time for the wedding!
After the wedding was the cocktail hour where everyone got to know each other and of course, get some cocktails!
Jessica and Andres got their own little private quiet time during the cocktail hour to be alone and spend a few minutes together as newlyweds! I love these!
And the fun begins!! Reception time! Try not to be overwhelmed by the amount of reception photos I am posting… I know it is excessive but I just loved this wedding so much and had a blast! I just want to share the fun with photo memories!
This is Jessica and Andres’ first dance as newlyweds… Too cute!
She got him!
Time to throw the bouquet and garter! That kid was so stoked… He cracked me up! I’m so glad he caught it haha!
This is my absolute favorite dance sequence I have ever shot. Isn’t it the most adorable thing you have ever ever ever seen? Oh my gosh. Can’t get over it. Hahaha… awww..
Finally a few more favorites from the rest of the night.
I had such a blast with Andres and Jessica on their wedding night. Thanks again to Mr. & Mrs. L for allowing me to be a part of it!!!
“I’m 1 Today!”
This is Krish! What an adorable little boy!
Yesterday, I took a trip out to Raleigh, NC to shoot little Krish’s first birthday party.
Let’s start off with a quick family photo:
This party was such a huge event!! Krish is quite popular for a one year old.. I don’t think I could have a party this big if I tried!!! 😉 He had an awesome cake made by Lynn’s Traditions based out of Raleigh, NC. Check out their site for more details on how to get your own cake like this one.
Also, delicious food catered by the restaurant venue, Zayka Indian Cuisine.
Following appetizers was a children’s entertainment show, featuring Elmo, a magician, and balloon twisting.
Don’t forget face painting!
A special hat for the birthday boy!!
And finally, time for this huge crowd to sing “Happy Birthday” to little Krish. He was so cute as he clapped along with everyone after the song.
Blowing out the candle! Happy birthday little man!
That’s a wrap on Krish’s 1st Birthday. Looking forward to a future portrait session with this awesome family & their precious son!!
