Valerie & David actually live in Charlotte, NC, but Valerie grew up here on the West Side of Cincinnati and wanted to get married at her childhood church. Due to the distance, I didn’t get to meet them until a few weeks before their wedding while they were in town finalizing all of their plans. Corbin & I went to meet them and I knew right away that they were going to be a blast to photograph. They are so easy going & so happy…as we sat there and talked, I felt like I had known them for years!
Valerie is so beautiful!
Look at how big her smile is! (They did not see each other before-hand, so I’m sure she was overflowing with so many emotions)
They had an early ceremony and allowed for plenty of of time before the reception for photos, which makes me very happy! (Plus I know they just wanted a good excuse to enjoy their Bengals bus as much as possible:) and really who could blame them?)
To say that the bridal party was a little rowdy would be an understatement 🙂 They definitely know how to have a good time!
Thank you guys for being so welcoming…I had a great time and was honored to capture your special day!
I also owe a special thanks to Andrea of Coily Photos for doing a wonderful job second shooting with me!
