St. Cornelius Wedding Photos – Amy & Joe

Amy & Joe love the outdoors. This past winter, we took their engagement photos in a forest preserve…we had a lot of fun in the snow. A couple of my favorite pictures:

You can see the rest of their engagement images here.

We started the wedding day at Amy’s parent’s house. I loved a few of the furniture pieces in the house, and wanted to incorporate it into the dress shot-

I put the rings on a few chess pieces-

Mom was helping her daughter with her makeup-

We grabbed a couple creative portraits of Amy before we left for the church.

Joe was hanging out with his boys before the ceremony-

Their faith is very important to Amy & Joe and so I definitely wanted to share these two images on the blog-

For their creative photos, we returned to the same forest preserve that we were at for their engagement session. The bridal party was totally up for the session and really got into some of the scenes.

I told Amy to give Joe her “evil eye” =)

No Amy you just got married!

I love these next two creative portraits. I took a little bit of extra artistic liberty with the photoshop-

Here a suggestion for all grooms-to-be…you might want to stay off the wedding dress. =)

Thanks you guys for a wonderful wedding day! You and your bridal party were a ton of fun and I think it shows in the images! I definitely look forward to seeing you guys around!

with love,
