Lindsey & Jake – Steator Wedding Photos

14 Nov

It is high time this blog got caught up! Who wants to see a wedding?!

Lindsey and Jake got married in early October (my most favorite wedding month) and had a perfect outdoor ceremony followed by a reception with the craziest, most awesome dance floor ever! But we’ll get to that… We started the day with a trip to the salon:


Part of our wedding packages – food delivery as needed! That’s right ladies, he’s handsome, he shoots a mean photograph and he delivers double cheese burgers to brides who are short on time and big on hunger!


I’d like to show you a photo or two of the bride eating her double cheese burger while getting her hair done, but I’d like to stay in business. So instead I will show you this photo…


With the hair done it was back to Lindsey’s for the girls to finish getting dolled up and have a bit of fun.


Love that one! Everyone should have a crazy amount of fun on their wedding day!! Below – more fun. The photo on the left was taken when these ladies were at a grade school sleep over. The photo on the right, is the bride busting out the nostalgia and I think the bottom shot speaks for itself : )

Something to be said for having friends that long.  Love this next one – just hanging out in the living room, getting ready for her wedding, no big deal : )

Meanwhile, the guys were hanging out and having a few laughs of their own.

Lindsey and Jake’s ceremony was hosted by close friends who not only let them use their property, but went above and beyond to create an amazing ceremony space. The wedding had a baseball theme, so the tent was set up right over the infield of this backyard baseball diamond, how amazing is that?!


They even had homemade valet parking! Are you kidding me?!

A few shots of the bride all ready to go…

And then we were ready for some couples shots – but – they didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony so we got creative and made it happen!

A few from the ceremony. But just a few cus I know you’re itchin’ to see the purdy posed ones : )

Love this next one. Jake and Lindsey got engaged on this home plate so it was only fitting that they got married at it too!

After the vows it was time for some more couple shots (sans blindfold) and a few with the bridal party.

Seriously, Lindsey – wow – gorgeous!

I love these next 3 big much. They’re all my favorites because I can’t pick just one!

Before calling it done we stopped by the Woodland High School football field to help ourselves to some football photos. Let me just say that I am obsessed with the next photo. I love it. I was really just checking my settings to get the light right but the way Lindsey is standing makes this photo. Love love love.

To the bleachers! Big shout out to this bridal party for making these photos amazing. All I said was “go sit in the bleachers and pretend like you’re at a game!” and bam, perfection!

Time to load up the Party Bus. And oh what a party it was. There is a lot of happy in these photos!

The bridal party put up a baseball bat arch a la A League of their Own for their entrance!!

A little first dance…

A little toast…

A few dances with the parents…

And then it was time to daaaance!! And did they ever. But as mentioned previously, I would like to remain in business so I won’t be sharing the truly amazing photos that resulted from this dance floor. No, I’ll just keep those to myself in case I ever need to blackmail a bridesmaid.

To kick off the dancing, Lindsey requested a special song and gathered all her mom’s girlfriends to put together a special surprise dance for her mama. She picked a song they’d loved to dance to when she was little. The song? Going Out Dancin by Rod Stewart! As you might infer by…you know…my name…I’m inclined to love me some Rod Stewart. Her mom was obviously surprised, love this:

And from there all dancing hell just broke loose…

For future bride’s I’d like to remind you to consider a few important things when selecting your bridesmaids. You need girls who will really be there for you in a pinch.

For example, will she put out the imaginary fire on your dad’s pant leg??


Will she mop the dance floor mid-song when someone spills a beer?

Such responsibility should not be taken lightly.

Typically when I’m shooting dancing photos I just try to move through the crowd and snag some actions shots. Usually I go unnoticed. But some strange phenomenon was taking place at this reception and I kept getting pointed at. I would sneak into the middle of the floor, snag a few shots, turn around and someone would point at me! The first few times I thought it was a coincidence. After that I couldn’t figure out what the hell was going on, so I just went with it. That said… Ladies and Gentlemen my favorite pointing pictures from the evening…

See?! I have no idea. But I know I had a real good time!

Lindsey and Jake – Thanks for letting Zac and I be a part of your big day! Every part of it was beautiful and you are very blessed to have such wonderful (and fun!) family and friends. Cheers to you!

Psst…Planning a 2012 wedding? Give us a holler soon if you’re interested in wedding photography. We have great packages for 2012 but the schedule is filling fast and there’s only room for a few more weddings on the 2012 calendar!
