 Congrats to Alicia and Rick, my rockstar (they met in a band!) couple who tied the knot at the coolest venue ever, Seven Degrees!

Here’s a reflection shot of Alicia getting ready in the mirror, the dress had many buttons and the bridesmaids had fun!

 Seven Degrees has so many cool backdrops and opportunities to shoot through, I love this shot of Alicia through the glass.

I overexposed this by two stops, I really wanted that blown out look and flare from the back.

I love shooting with the sun to the back of the subject, notice how the sun illuminates her veil and the side of her hair.

This shot of Alicia is just before the giving and receiving of rings, I love how you can see Ricks ring on the index finger of her left hand.

My second photographer, Kristin, rocked this shot of this kiss.  She was at shutter speed of 1/30th and zoomed in while simultaneously triggering the shutter.
