Its always amazing to shoot a friends wedding, but even more so when they actually connect with the Perfect soul mate. In this case it was the perfect SWOLL mate. Joel and Kelsey are amazing people. I had been using Joel as a fitness model for a while and he connected with Kelsey. Kelsey was just finishing Nursing school to be come an RN, but both of them were complete fitness guru's.
They seemed to connect quickly. Joel brought her over to me to shoot prior to one of her fitness competitions. The minute I saw them together, I just had this feeling it was a good match.
When they asked me to do their wedding, we sat down and had a a brainstorming session. In the end, they went with a bohemian look and feel and fully decked out their wedding to make it look and feel as such.
I had two extra photographers with me on this day. Both are amazing photographers. Mark Stallbaumer, who I shoot with a lot, again showed his amazing talent at this and Michelle Henke (no relation, but cool) also showed up. Michelle also has her own video business and just happens to be in Nursing school.
What an amazing wedding, amazing couple, and an amazing team to work with.
Take a look at the beautiful images we got with this wedding. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did shooting them.
Joel and Kelsey, we all wish you the best on your new Journey to the West Coast and we hope to see you from time to time.
Michell Brought her Light meter......We had to get a shot of that!
And in this one, you see why I would use either of them as models.
Gorgeous Kelsey, but check out those muscles!
