I am so incredibly lucky. Being Brad and Katie’s wedding photographer at Bay Pointe Woods was nothing short of a dream.
Brad’s excitement for his wedding day was contagious and Katie’s beauty was undeniable. The sun was shining and joy radiated among their family and friends. Everyone there was sincerely happy to be there….from beginning to end. I just adore these two and know you’ll love them too!
We started the morning out by shooting details of Katie’s dress, their rings, shoes, flowers….really, anything pretty that went along with the design of their day. I just love Katie’s style!
Katie got ready with her closest friends and family. Watching this all unfold while hearing endless laughter was the perfect way to start the day. Everyone was excited.
Wow. Girlfriend…you are stunning! This may be an all time favorite photo!
Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready next door and taking laps on the boat. I’m not sure how we got such perfect weather….
The moment EVERYONE was waiting for. Their first look.
Goodness, what a beautiful couple.
When I think of Katie, I think of endless joy. When I think of Brad, I think of how much he loves Katie. They are the best.
Their ceremony site was just outside the venue. Such a peaceful place to start their lives as husband and wife.
Kristy Stites did an amazing job with the flowers. They were everywhere and they were gorgeous!
This handsome guy in black is their sweet boy, Apollo. He joined us for part of their engagement session.
This may be my favorite photo of the day. Katie and her dad walking down the aisle. So incredibly sweet.
There wasn’t much of a sunset but we had to sneak back outside for a few more photos of these two as husband and wife!
Dancing with her dad. Love!
DJ Adrian Butler kept the party going. I could have stayed all night just to dance. So. Much. Fun!
Brad & Katie – thank you so much for asking me to photograph this incredible day. Being around you two makes me so happy and gives me so much joy. I hope you love your photos! There are SO many more 🙂
xoxo – Kellie
