Married: Taren & Brian

If you've been reading our blog for any length of time now, you know just how much we LOVE our McKinneys!! And by that I mean their ENTIRE extended circle of family & friends. We first met Taren & Brian at Lon & Melissa's wedding (who we also just adore!!) last September and have since shot two engagement shoots with them as well as a family shoot for Taren's sister Shannon. So by the time the wedding rolled around we felt like we were part of the fam. We even got to go hang out with these guys at the rehearsal dinner on Friday night and they sat us at the head table with them!! Seriously?? Yea, like I said, LOVE THEM!!

Soooo without further ado, here are some of our favorites from the day!

I LOVE this shot I got of Taren in front of the Audrey Hepburn painting at the salon.

Her dress from The White Dress by the Shore was so gorgeous! It was all flowy and amazing...very midsummer nights dream!

I grabbed this shot of the gals checking out their flip flops by this incredible window light. I love how the symmetry is slightly weighted to one side like they used a lot in "The Man Who Wasn't There" (which we just watched with our PUG last night). Watch it if you haven't seen it!! It's awesome!!

Justin grabbed this killer shot of the girls getting ready to leave.

I was loving these lil' dresses so much and all the gold shoes that this shot instantly came to mind. I really love how it all started to look like a painting with a lil' Totally Rad Actions lovin.

This is one of the things I love most about having two shooters. J grabbed this shot of the girls looking down at me while I was grabbing a quick group shot. It's one of my favorite from the whole day!

The flowers were absolutely stunning. Seriously stunning. Wild Orchid in Middletown did them and we were just blown away!

The church!!

Hi!! These two guys were the ringbearers. Are you kidding me?!? Adorable!! My gal Val was with us again to second shoot, and between the three of us we just COULD NOT stop shooting them!!!


Brian was so happy to see Taren!! I got all teary watchin the two of them and seeing how happy they were!

A couple of quick portraits with new Mr & Mrs

Taren was SUCH a gorgeous bride! Just incredible...her eyes are AMAZING!! ahhhh! Yea, gotta love that 85 1.4!
