Stephanie and Manuel [Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm]

We will be seeing a lot of these siblings in the next few years.  Two years ago we shot Jen and Nate’s wedding in Mexico [here] and we couldn’t wait to capture Steph and Manuel’s wedding this summer.  It was such a beautiful day full of lots love and laughter. Manuel is a photographer as well  (check him out) so there was a lot to live up to. So much pressure. (kidding :)) I have known Steph’s family for many years and  it was so nice to be surrounded by so many familiar faces again. It really makes my job that much more fun.

One of the perks of photographing a photographer’s wedding is probably the amount of time allotted for photography. Steph and Manuel had so much time for photos and they were still to enjoy all of their cocktail hour and reception. It led to a very relaxing day. And can we talk about how gorgeous Steph looked?!  So timeless and beautiful. Manuel couldn’t take his eyes off her all day. Don’t worry Manuel, you looked so handsome too.

I also have to give a special shout out to Manuel’s daughter Sofia for being such an awesome help all day. She had such an important role at the wedding but she was also a rockstar at their engagement session as well. She was my “second shooter” all day and wasn’t shy at all to give me her photo advice!

I could go on and on describing this wedding with every detail but I think the pictures can do that for me.
