Today was a throwback to my teaching days with Tony and Tanya and all the North High connections!
We have continued to have a magical fall for photography in Stillwater! October 24 seems a little late for fall colors, but the yellows really came out this week to add to an already colorful palette in the valley. The images we took at Pioneer Park were very unique and colorful for the season – my favorite is the sun flare one with Tony and Tanya in the bottom corner.
When we shoot at the awesome Loft at Studio J, we try to always do different and unique images for people and Tanya’s hanging dress with the wide lens on Josh’s wall is one of our favorites. Some other fun images below include Grandma on the flip phone, the groomsmen adjusting their suspenders in a train, tears during the first dance sung by Tanya’s parents, and a big group hug. We also got some sweet images on the soon-to-be-demolished loading dock at our new venue, JX.
There are always a few moments during any wedding that are very emotional and surprising that we love to capture. Perhaps my favorite is the speeches because you never really know how funny and emotional they will be – especially when friends and family pour their heart out to the bride and groom – and that happened today.
We have done same-day slideshows of images we have taken during the wedding day and played them at the reception for about 10 years now, but something happened today that was different: Tanya was so overcome by the power of seeing those images in almost real time, that she came and gave me a hug DURING the slideshow. She totally missed about 5 images just to give me a hug and that was awesome!!! It was such a surprise that neither Josh or I could capture it. 🙂
Thank you Tony and Tanya for letting us be a part of your big day and deliver these images to you! -Judd and Josh and The Loft Staff
