I first met Brandon when I got to photograph his sister's wedding. His family is one of the most amazing and thoughtful families I have ever met, so I knew that Hannah was going to be awesome too. I was right. Hannah and Brandon are some of the most wonderful people I have ever met.
Hannah was quick to tell me that she might be a little slow with emails leading up to the wedding because she was heading to Africa for a mission trip and wasn't getting back until a week or two before the wedding. I started laughing immediately. I've never had a bride go to Africa on a mission trip so close to her wedding date. Luckily, she came back malaria free and with a nice glow from the African sun.
Hannah and Brandon had their ceremony at Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church, which is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. I loved that they did a exit from the church because it was such a fun moment and created some really great photos. After knocking out some killer portraits we headed to Drees pavilion which sits on a hilltop that overlooks the city, and is basically the perfect place for a wedding reception.
It was such a blessing and fun experience to celebrate with these two amazing people. Enjoy the photos!
