Usbec and I first met Sydney and Ryan on their wedding day! That actually happens quite a bit with out of town couples and I’m always a little more nervous than when we’re able to have an engagement session, for many reasons. One reason is, you don’t really know what to expect! We spend months talking with our couples but it’s totally different getting to meet them in person. I’m also nervous because you never know how things are going to go when you’re actually photographing them! Will they be nervous? Will they hate portrait time? Will they completely knock it out of the park?? Sydney and Ryan did not disappoint in any way. Their wedding was fun and upbeat! They were so great themselves! Usbec and I loved getting to spend the day with them photographing their wedding. Sydney was nothing short of a beautiful model and nailed every single pose we gave her and Ryan’s reaction seeing her come down the aisle was one for the books! It was just a FUN wedding and we enjoyed it so, so much!
This was our first time photographing at The Magnolia and while the drive is quite possibly the most terrifying we’ve ever had, the view from the top cannot be beat! There was no rain in the forecast for their big day, but we had a little pop up shower just a few minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start. They quickly moved things around, did cocktail hour first, and then had the ceremony. Misty and the whole staff were AMAZING and had the chairs and entire ceremony site dry as soon as it quit raining!
Usbec and I LOVED being a part of this beautiful, beautiful wedding. Sydney and Ryan, thank you guys SO MUCH for having us!! Congratulations to you two, we’re so very excited for you!!
