Mr. & Mrs. Smith (really!)

Jill & Ryan approached us, last year, about shooting their wedding and we immediately fell in love with their down-to-earth personalities.  Jill is easily one of the sweetest brides we have ever worked with.  And Ryan, beneath that tough exterior, is also one of the sweetest grooms, too!

We started the day after the girls had finished their hair and makeup.  The ceremony and reception were both at Sweetwater Event Center and the folks there did an absolutely fantastic job working with the couple to decorate the venue with the perfect blend of classic and modern.

Here are a few of our favorite memories from the day:

When we learned that taking bridal party formals near a popular fishing spot will make for some entertaining photos.

We made some new friends!

We were photobombed… many times.  Hats off to you, good sir!

Jill also orchestrated a very special picture for her husband: all of the Reitz alumni were invited to come to the stage while Ryan spent a few minutes outside with Mike posing for some “GQ-type images.”  For the record… Ryan totally rocked it.  He came back in to all of his Reitz friends and family singing the Reitz fight song and it was all I could do not to jump in and shoot it selfie-style (2000 Reitz grad right here).

Enjoy the rest of the online gallery and thank you to the vendors who helped make the day such a success!

    Jill & Ryan over 800 images – there are tons of lovely shots with Betty in them! I actually had a couple in contention for sneaks and didn’t realize none of her made it. I’ve added my favorite to the gallery for you and you can contact the couple to get their access information to see all the images – have fun looking through them! It was a wonderful event 🙂
