Ok listen–this still gets to me when I look at it as it did while I was standing there. Justin got so emotional when Christina came down the aisle he could barely hold it together. It was so sweet!…

So we took a drive from Springfield to Simsbury along some back roads, as they told me there was a cool barn they wanted to stop at. Lo and behold– the barn was amazing (as you will soon see)

But on

ce again – I have no idea what’s going on.

a little impromptu roadside toast!

The couple were really into my whole vintage vibe, which was so cool since I felt I could go a little crazy with some fun effects on certain select images for them!

ahh-now THAT’S a BARN!!!!! I could have shot there all day! (geeky-tech-corner–im shooting from across the road with a very long lens on here)

is it still a photobomb when someone runs in FRONT of a photo?

Now don’t worry and call the police–this was a VERY quiet backroad and if anyone was going to get hurt it was my lying on my side!!!

Nothing better than a game couple willing to get in a somewhat-nasty-dirty barn for a cool image!!

Justin’s Mom had poised away so this Godmother/Godson dance was particularly emotional

I could have photographed Grandmas all night–what an amazing face and reactions!!!!

Justin’s brothers toast mentioning their Mom kind of got us all going again as well…

    This was such a fun wedding. Loved playing with the bridal party while Robert wasn’t looking 🙂 Great group of people. (I-O-WA!!)

  2. Justin

    Robert and JC we love every single photo that you guys took. It was such an amazing day and we could not be happier with the photos. You guys were awesome!!

    Robert and jc,
    We couldn’t,t be more pleased with Christina and Justin’s wedding photos. You both captured every emotion(wether it was a tear, a smile or just a silly moment) we had so much fun with the both of you. You made everyone so comfortable (so much so) you can see it in the photographs. Thank you both so much for making my daughters vintage themed wedding a reality. I will certainly recommend you to all my family and friends.most of them were at the wedding and certainly agree with me.

    Thank you again,

    mob(mother of the bride)
