I shot Holly Balsman and Nathan Moran’s wedding on May 22nd. They got married at Hermann Hill winery in Hermann, MO and it was a beautiful venue. I must say, we were all a little nervous because this wedding was on May 22 and Rachel’s due date was May 19th (and she hadn’t had the baby yet by wedding day) . . . so I was nervous and Holly was nervous and Nathan was nervous and my wife was nervous. I told Rachel when I left the house that she had to sit with her legs crossed all day and that Zoe was forbidden from entering the world on this date. Luckily for all, she waited a few more days and I got to be a part of Holly and Nathan’s beautiful day. I felt so honored.
For those of you wondering, I did have backup. Kris Gay with Bella Vita Studios in Fort Wayne, IN came up to help me shoot and she was going to be my backup in case I had to leave. Luckily, I didn’t and we got to shoot the whole wedding together. (Thanks Kris)
Finally, before I post the sneak peek images, I have to give a shout out to the videographer. He was absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! His name is Michael Gebben with Gebbs Wedding Films and not only is he amazingly talented, he is a super nice guy and was a pleasure to work with all day long. If you have a chance to check out Holly and Nathan’s 5 minute video, you should do it. You will be BLOWN AWAY! Not only is the video incredible, Michael produced it on the DAY OF THE WEDDING and showed it at their reception. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. You can check out their video here (it’s less than 5 minutes and totally worth your time) – http://vimeo.com/12011064
