Daryl & Maria: Wedding {10.29.2011}

What a beautiful day for a wedding!

Daryl & Maria had their engagement photos done on a calm, cloudy September evening ...
and their wedding was bright and sunny! 
Takes on such a different effect with the photos ...

My friend, Stephanie did the floral arrangements ... I just love her style.

Ivory lace dress ... it fits the season!

My dear SIL Kendra was my assistant photographer :)
She captured this up-close shot of the sequined brooch.

At a nearby country park, Daryl arrived in style to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day:

My view:

Oh, love.
I love this "vanilla" Lightroom preset: 

Kendra's view: (love!)

Beautiful, happy bride 

This really is my favorite from the whole day:

Flower girls always make the day extra special. 

Cake was designed and made by Michelle:

Creatively speaking, indoor formals are really not my favorite to do, not that I mind, just that I don't feel they really fit in with the candid type of photography I enjoy doing.
But, they are a big part of weddings and very nice to have for the photobooks!

I use a two light set-up, 10 ft lightstands, 60 in umbrellas, both lights are set to equal power using a flash meter:

Kendra stayed back for these following two photos:

Bubbles, bubbles:
One of the most fun parts of the day for the kids!

Congratulations, Daryl & Maria!
It's been such a joy & honor to be a part of your engagement and wedding day.
Wishes and prayers for many years of happiness together. 

Stay tuned... I will post even more photos to the facebook page soon!

I have to say, those are the best pictures I have ever seen taken in the church. No weird coloring, shadows, etc. And so sorry about the ugly carseat in the aisle. Oops! That was all mine.
