Some might consider wind and rain an inconvenience on their wedding day, but as photographers we were THRILLED- and Shelby and Shawn were unshakeable! Those two might as well have been professionals! Shelby’s deep-hued fall color palette was rich and warm, contrasting beautifully against the crisp overcast skies. Her custom Essense of Australia wedding gown was altered to follow the stunning contour of her back and her sparkling hair clasp and jewelry matched her gorgeous Badgley Mischka shoes! There is only one gown in the world like hers, and we think that’s exactly as it should be!
Meeting a wedding party is always fun, but the enthusiasm from this group was unique and entertaining from the very beginning. Shawn was practically giddy at his surprise gift from Shelby, and his groomsmen were almost as excited to see his reaction! The toasts revealed hilarious inside jokes and memories, and once the dance floor opened up, there was rarely an empty spot. In fact, the entire crowd could have kept going long after the last song. These people knew how to party!
Watching Shawn stand by and gaze at Shelby while she posed for her solo pictures was absolutely everything. He jumped in whenever needed, always willing to help and be her support. All in all, from their unforgettable engagement shoot to their perfectly rainy wedding, we simply can’t say enough about how blissfully easy they were to photograph and how much we love them together. Thank you for allowing us to experience your relationship and meet your amazing friends and family, Shelby and Shawn!
