I first met Tasha & Nolen last summer during their engagement session. These two were hilarious and we had such a good time at their engagement shoot. About a month later Tasha saw my booth at the Bridal Collective Bridal Show at Morovia Winery, she came right up to me and gave me a big hug (seriously, she’s a great hugger!). Tasha told me how much she loved her engagement photos and how everyone else loved them. She told me that when it came time to book their wedding photographer they knew it had to be me, that Nolen wouldn’t accept anyone else. I don’t know if they knew how much that meant to me, I do this because I LOVE it and don’t always hear back from clients about how much they love their images so to be trusted with their wedding day was a huge deal to me.
The day of their wedding it was POURING rain. Luckily they had booked The Falls Event Center in Fresno and everything was planned to be inside. Of course I was a little worried about doing portraits but in the end we got lucky and the sky cleared for a bit.
Look at Landen watching his Mom walk down the aisle! So stinking cute.
I just love this shot of the first kiss that my second shooter took, look at the brides dad covering his eyes, lol.
I may or may not have been completely obsessed with Tasha’s veil. Seriously, cathedral lengths, light weight, AND those gorgeous rhinestones EVERYWHERE, it was amazing and I loved the way it looked against her skin.
The Bride, Groom and their children. These two have been together for 12 years, 12! I have no doubt that they will stand the test of time.
Seriously, obsessed with this veil, dress, everything, her entire look was poppin.
They did everything themselves (with the help of so many wonderful family members!). The decor was just gorgeous.
My second shooter LOVES getting these detail shots during the first dance. She has a fantastic eye for it.
When it came time for their first dance as man and wife I knew there was no way they were just going to slow dance. Tasha dropped it ALL the way down.
The honeymoon dances were no different.
The bridesmaids planned a special dance but didn’t have enough time to practice and weren’t going to do it. I think the Brides daughter, Lana, got the DJ to play the song anyways. But I’m so glad they still did it! These guys are the life of the party. The entire wedding my second photographer kept saying how much fun this wedding was and I agree completely, if I could dance, at all, I would have been out there with them.
Thank you Tasha & Nolen for allowing me to capture your special day.
