When my dear friend Julie called and told me her “second-daughter” Brandi was getting married and after showing her my work really wanted Jon and me to shoot her wedding, I was thrilled. And after I met Jonny, Brandi and their families, I knew why they were so beloved to Julie. Brandi is a beautiful girl with an infectious smile, mischievous eyes, and heart of gold. And Jonny, well he’s one of those all-American guys with a tender heart and incredible strength all at the same time. One simply can’t help but be endeared to them quickly.
It was a windy day at their Grand Island Mansion wedding and these two (along with the wedding party and families) rocked it all day long! They even braved the strong gusts by the river in one of what is now one of my favorite portrait shots ever. Maybe it was foreshadowing for their ability as a couple to weather anything. Whatever it was, it was pure magic. A day filled with love, laughter, and all the happiness these two deserve, forever and always.

I love your work. How does your site do with organic SEO for weddings in California? I am in the process of trying to redo my SEO as it seems the parameters have changes since I did mine. What seems to help you rank the most? I am on the GA coast and I am just not ranking high anymore where I use to be at the top.
Okay.. I loved the set, the Hollywood style kiss at the alter, but that shot with the sun going down blew my mind! The way her dress flows into the setting sun almost like a cloud or a wave, I do not know how you even get a shot like that! I wish I had you doing my pictures at my wedding!! LOL I am serious, that is one of the best wedding shots I had ever seen.
She is just unbelievable and extremely talented. Loves what she does and was a pleasure to have shooting our special day! Incredible pictures we will cherish forever 🙂
