Ryley and Amanda :: Brazil, Indiana // This wedding was such a blast to be a part of. It was super relaxed and comfortable…not stressful at all. Usually when a first look isn’t involved…there can sometimes be a little stress beforehand trying to balance the photos and keeping the bride and groom from seeing eachother..but with a super laid back bride and groom, a very comfortable family and bridal party…there was not one moment this entire wedding day that I was stressed or felt rushed. We took our time and got all the necessary photos done beforehand…and then we did something that I’m really starting to love doing…even though it makes me SUPER nervous. We did a no look, first look. I LOVED these photos!! Though I will say..the entire time I was shooting them…my hands were sweating because I was so nervous that one of them was going to peek around the corner at the other..but they both behaved! haha Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
Right outside the church was this perfect shady area with a brick road….it worked out perfectly for the family photos and bridal party portraits!
After the ceremony I followed the bride and groom and the entire bridal party out to the middle of nowhere (seriously…middle of nowhere) and there was this great location that they got permission to use that had an awesome old barn, willow tree, old truck, and so much more. I LOVED the spot…and hopefully will get the opportunity to shoot there again one day.
