Kara and Mike had a gorgeous day celebrating their wedding at Ballyowen Golf Club! The day was a mix of fun getting ready (hello confetti poppers!!!), to emotional first looks with Kara’s dad and Mike, portraits with the most stunning backdrop, a ceremony filled with meaningful moments, to a super fun reception!! This was you guys (get my reference Kara? lol)
From the couple: Michelle and Allison were absolutely phenomenal! We are so excited to get our pictures back and anxiously waiting as we know they will be stunning. Michelle is a breeze to work with, and a true professional. She was able to help us navigate everything from various terrain, to family dynamics, all while calming my nerves. Several of my bridesmaids who had been in other weddings/recently married remarked that they had wished their photographer was as organized yet calm and directive as her. She wrangled a big bridal party quickly and made sure we had amazing shots. We had such a blast with her during our engagement shoot (which I highly recommend doing!) as it gave us a feel for her fun personality (along with her dad jokes) as well as how she shoots, which helped me figure out poses I liked/didn’t since I am very self conscious. We loved that she tries to take photos that reflect “in the moment joy,” rather than just a ton of posed photos (though don’t worry, she will take plenty of beautiful portraits too). She really understood the importance of capturing the spirit of the day and we are so excited our photos!!
