meghan + tristan: getting ready

meghan + tristan

The bride (Meghan) was not the least bit nervous on wedding day. When I arrived to snap some photos of her getting ready, she was happily eating Jack in the Box (hope she doesn't mind my sharing that) - calm, cool, and collected.

And while she seemed calm up until she walked down the aisle, there is just something about putting the dress on - that moment when you look at yourself in the mirror and think "WHOA - I'm getting MARRIED today."

I love this last one - she is a beautiful bride.

I'm going to apologize in advance for the many upcoming posts on this lovely wedding. I wish I could consolidate it into one post, but I simply cannot because: (1) it's going to take me forever to edit these photos, and (2) it's my first wedding shoot and I'm excited to have any that came out halfway decent, so I feel I must share.

Thank you for indulging me...
