Chelsea and Ky Get Married!

Most of the weddings I shoot are in the Summer and Fall months, so when I get an opportunity to shoot a wedding on a snowy January day... I'm excited. Especially when I have two beautiful people like Chelsea and Ky Kouzmanoff. I met Chelsea through my wife Alysen where they used to be coworkers. I had never met Ky before their engagement, but I followed his Brother Kevin Kouzmanoff who played Major league baseball for several years. Getting to know both Chelsea and Ky throughout this process was awesome and to be a friend's wedding photographer is always something special.

After getting ready photos, we headed over to the Wellshire Golf Course and Event Center for their first look and it was incredible. With the snow falling, there was this "winter wonderland" feel, not only in the photos but during the actual moment. I found myself taking a moment to look around at the beauty all around us to realize what a special time this really was.

After the first look we headed to their ceremony which too place at St. Thomas Moore Catholic Church. The ceremony was beautiful and after family photos, we headed back to Wellshire Event Center for the party! The rest of the night was filled with amazing energy and laughter! Being a part of the reception is always thrilling for me. Every time I shoot a wedding it reminds me of my wedding day. The way I looked at my new Wife, the way my friends and family were beaming with joy... It is simply why I love to do what I do.
