Abbey and Anthony get married! Omaha Wedding Photographer

This post has been around 18 months in the making. I'm happy to finally be sharing these photos with you.

I want to introduce you to Abbey and Anthony.

A REALLY LONG time ago, I got this email. I wish I still had it, I would share with you, it was on my old computer that is currently on sabbatical. It said basically, "I'm getting married in Maryville, I have a photographer but I need to know where to have a reception."

Now, I know a lot of photographers that would have blown off this email, but I didn't. Cuz I'm nice like that ;) So I wrote her back, and told her the few places I knew, and told her if she decided she needed a photographer, to let me know.

Long story short, we emailed back and forth, and she decided that she'd like to have someone shoot for them, that wasn't just a good friend. We sat up a meeting and hit it off immediately. Abbey reminds me of me in ways, in fact, her family reminds me of the type of family you'd find me in. I'm kinda wondering if I'm not really her slightly older sister. :)

(her mom had me when she was 7. Yeah.)

Anthony is actually from an area where a lot of my relatives are. In fact, he knows my cousin's daughter. All this is weird considering that this place is over 3 hours from here.

The deal was done. We were all a match and I would be shooting her photos. We friended each other on facebook and each time I would upload a wedding, Abbey would comment and tell me how much she loved the photos and told me how she couldn't wait to see HER photos.

And so... here it is, a year and a half later, and here are her photos.

You're going to see someone else here, that I know you've seen before. Remember Tacheny and JT? Well, I shot their wedding in December (which I think I need to share those photos yet!), Abbey and Tacheny are best friends, and she found me because of Abbey.

I love the juxtaposition of the ring of a married woman, helping a new bride get ready for her day. This time it's Tacheny...


.... and this time it's her mom:

This is a little "artistic flair" added to a photo that I marginally liked, but playing with it, loved.

This is Anthony, and I think really is a good representation of the type of person he is. He laughs a lot, he makes Abbey laugh more. They are a wonderful match.

Even my husband is impressed by him, and trust me, my husband is rarely impressed by the youth of today.

The funny thing is, over all this time, Abbey and Anthony have become friends too. This happens frequently, especially when you have a lot of time to get to know each other. These two are special, they are funny happy people, and their day ended up being like shooting a friend's wedding. I kinda felt bad charging them for it. lol.

This shot was a reinactment of one we did in their engagement photos months ago. This was Abbey's favorite, and she used it for all their save the date cards.

Funny story, this was supposed to be my wedding cake!! No really!
I saw it in a wedding magazine before we were married and I think I even clipped it out. SAME COLORS. I was happy that *someone* got to have it anyway. I don't think I even got a piece of it. *sigh*

She was one of the cake ladies, and I fell in love with her feather. She had to tell me to stop taking photos.

Really.

They were singing "my mom" instead of "my girl".
What sweet boys.
What a lucky mom!

This is where I got teary-eyed. I can't remember the song that dad and Abbey danced to, but by the end of the song, every single person in the room was singing along. I don't think I've ever even heard the song, but it was so pretty and sweet to hear one more, then one more, until everyone was singing along.

I need to stop, I'm teary-eyed again!

I'm such a pushover for weddings. LOL

Just like Tacheny's wedding, NO ONE was scared to get out and dance, or *sing*. It was so fun and the dance floor was packed. Probably because Abbey and Tacheny and well, all their families combined are singers, actors, dancer types.

(I'm telling you, I was such a drama/speech nerd in high school.)

I heard the news the other day, that soon they are moving to Omaha. I will admit that I'm a little sad that I won't run into them at the store or the local mexican place anymore. Onward and upward!

Congrats you two. I'm glad you picked me, and you still had a friend take your photos after all.

And friend, this is why you are a professional photographer ~ you take memories and make them forever :)

Thank you for sharing, these photos really reflect on their relationship and the relationship to their friends and family. And with your creativity, they become art!

PS I think we should all get a hat like the cake lady ...!
