There are a million compliments that I could give to Christine and Joe. But my favorite thing about them is how kind they are. My second favorite? They are INSANELY photogenic… it’s unreal. What more could a photographer want than a phenomenally kind and exceptionally beautiful couple to photograph? Nothing. Not one thing.
Oh, EXCEPT for when they said, “We can go wherever you want for photos… but we FOR SURE want to stop at a bar.” Loud and clear, Christine and Joe. Loud and clear.
Our day started at The Alexander, which is really the most perfect hotel for photos. The light is heaven. We then headed to their venue, The Arch at Chatham, for some fun photos with their awesome bridal party. After their amazing ceremony, the bridal party snuck out of the cocktail party and headed right next door to St. Joseph Brewery for some cocktails. Can I get an AMEN? Their gorgeous reception was an extraordinary end to a perfect day.
Why have ONE pair of Kate Spade shoes when you can have TWO PAIRS! A gal after my own heart…
This first look was to die for. They are just the cutest.
During their engagement session, Christine and Joe buried a bottle of Paddy’s that Joe got in Ireland. This tradition is meant to hold off rain on the wedding day. It worked like a charm…
You two are the loveliest… and I’m thrilled to have been a part of your story!
