Mike & Whitney ~ Russellville, Arkansas

You may remember Mike and Whitney  from their engagement session back in September.  When I met them here at the studio I knew I loved them.  Their chemistry was so great, but more than that, their ability to be photographed without fear was such a gift.  They loved the camera and were not hesitant about showing affection when the camera was pointed at them.

Well, this past weekend I had the pleasure of spending Friday and Saturday with them and their families.  One thing that this wedding reminded me of is how much emotion there is surrounding the entire wedding, not just the wedding day.  I attended their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on Friday and watched as Whitney became just a tiny bit emotional during the practice of their vows.  It’s nice to be reminded that what I’m doing is so very important to my clients.  Seeing how much she and Mike love one another was the reminder that I needed.

For January, we could not have asked for better weather.  It was sunny and pretty warm, which provided the opportunity to go out on the grass at the Country Club to do a few photos with the newly married couple,,, but I’m saving those photos for them.

Here are a few photos from the day, including one from the rehearsal.

Have a wonderful marriage and thanks for letting me be part of your day.
