Jamie & Bo: The Sneak Peak

Filed under: Photography,Portraits,Weddings & Engagements — chantal @ 12:34 am

(I’m sooo behind on blogging!)

Last weekend I had the honor of photographing Jamie and Bo’s wedding. It began with an email, mid-summer, when Jamie’s mom contacted me about possibly shooting her daughter’s wedding. “She’s very particular”, she wrote…so I was hoping we’d be a good match. From the moment I first met Jamie, I knew we were. Within minutes we all (me, Jamie, Bo, and Jamie’s mom) were laughing and joking around, like old friends. I immediately felt like part of the family.

Just three weeks later, the big day arrived. Sadly, I’m not a good enough writer to describe how incredible this wedding was. Sure, everything was beautiful…the venue was lovely, the flowers were gorgeous, the Bride, stunning. But the emotion that filled the day was overwhelming, and on more than one occasion, I had tears in my eyes.

The best moment for me was when, after a bout of giggling and talking for just a few minutes, Jamie’s hair stylist asked if were friends (remember, we had just met three weeks prior). Jamie and I smiled at each other and I think we both responded with: “We are now”.

To be able to share in, and photograph, a friend’s wedding is an honor I can not describe. And the icing on the cake: Jamie and Bo’s entire family was equally warm and inviting! My own family is scattered around the country and we rarely get to be all together at once, therefore I am so grateful to have been part of this huge, loving family, even if only for a day. But I have a feeling I’ll be seeing much more of Jamie and Bo’s family 🙂

Since Jamie and Bo actually live in Michigan, and the wedding took place here in Ohio, we didn’t get to do the regular engagement shoot, so instead, I was able to spend a few minutes with Jamie and Bo just before the rehearsal, the night before the wedding. The late afternoon sun was just perfect. Here are a few of my favorites:




After a few minutes of portraits, the wedding rehearsal got started…it was so awesome to be able to meet some of Jamie and Bo’s family before the actual wedding:


Then I followed the family down to Plank’s Cafe, near downtown Columbus, where everyone relaxed and had a good time. Here is Jamie with her mom, sister, and 5 brothers:


Stayed tuned for more…

I’ll post more from Jamie and Bo’s fabulous wedding on Monday.

Have a great weekend! 🙂
