Oh my! I don’t know where to start with this one…Dirk & Anna’s country chic wedding was amazing! This the third wedding I’ve shot among this family, so I feel honored they continue to choose me to capture these special moments! I first met Anna when I shot her brother’s wedding in 2009. Then I saw her again when I shot her cousin’s wedding in 2010 and remember asking her when she was next. A year later she contacted me to tell me she was engaged and wanted me to shoot her wedding the following summer. I knew it would be a great wedding, but I didn’t know it would be this great!
I showed up on this hot May Saturday to this barn and got so excited. The sky was blue, the details were perfect, and the barn was ready for a wedding! Dirk was a little nervous but Anna was so calm all day. Once he saw her, his nerves disappeared and he returned to his goofy self. That’s what I love about them…he makes her laugh all the time. During his brother’s toast at the reception, he said Dirk & Anna share a quirky love that no one else understands. It was a perfect description…and isn’t that how it should be?!? I have enjoyed the time I’ve spent with them during their consultation, engagements, and wedding day. They definitely put a huge smile on my face!
I had a very hard time narrowing down photos that help you see how amazing it was, so I just posted a lot of them. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed shooting them.
As their guest arrived, they signed a piece of fabric (that will later be made into a quilt) and hung them on the clothes line and grabbed a drink before going to their seat. Such a cute idea and their guests loved it since it was pretty hot out there!
This little guy was pretty camera shy prior to the ceremony, but once he got on the dance floor all his cares went away!
Congrats Dirk & Anna! Everything was perfect! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it!
