Amber and Jeff’s Wedding – Marty Leonard Chapel

Everyone who knows me well knows, I LOVE SHOOTING KIDS!!!!   I also love shooting weddings.  I used to be terrified of them but, now I find them very challenging and that is what I appreciate about them the most.  So combine my love for weddings AND kids and I’m right where I’m supposed to be.  Then, add one of the best natural light chapels, The Marty Leonard Chapel … and I’m in photography heaven!  That was Amber and Jeff’s wedding.  The lovely couple  came together with  5 amazing little cuties and became one big happy family.

The morning started with donuts and Nemo.  The bride was still at the hairdresser’s so I got to spend lots of time with the groom and kiddos.

Grandparents are very helpful in these situations:

I had a fondness for Connor, which is also my husband’s name:

He kept himself busy while the other kids were getting ready.  I love his imagination!

And on to the girl’s side:


Hugging the bride/Mom.


It was so tight in that room. It was almost impossible to get a shot of the bride without getting someone else in it.  Amber’s friends just went with it!

These next two shots are proof that you never get off duty from being a mother.  Not even on your wedding day…

I think the ring bearer carried out his duties exceptionally well.

All of the kids came together to perform a sand ceremony.  This symbolized the union of the two families together.
