Tessa & Tobias

For those of you who are regular readers, you know that I do not type a lot. However, I had to say something about this wedding. ALL of my clients mean a lot to me. So when I say that this couple gets the "Wedding of the Year" award, I don't want to get phone call after phone call from my other brides ready to tear my head off. There is a reason for the award...read on. The award goes to Tessa & Tobias because no matter what - this couple was going to get married Saturday!

Well, the week started off with a horrible ice storm that hit Kansas and the surrounding states knocking out the power to over half of the state. The state doesn't know when the power will be restored to some of the towns that it affected, but the wedding had to go on. Saturday came and the entire town was still in the dark. And of course, to make matters worse, Mother Nature decided to dump 4-5 inches on the wedding. Oh yeah, did I mention the wedding was OUTSIDE in a tent?

This is the reason I have awarded the "Wedding of the Year" to Tessa & Tobias. They are so in love and were determined to get married all challenges aside.

Disclaimer: There is no actual award for the "Wedding of the Year". You just get a lot of blog images. :-)

Congrats guys!!

JD, Amazing! You did a great job given what Mother Nature threw your way. Another reason to work with great people that will understand your vision and even brave the cold just to achieve them.

Jason, these images are simply beautiful! Your ability to capture the essence of a day and of this couple created some quiet profound shoots. You now may hold my favorite shot of the year!

Congrats Tessa and Tobias!

This is some of the best work I've seen anywhere. Above all I love that look...I can't even describe it, but someone left a comment above that called it "vintage", and that seems about right. How do you achieve it? I've experimented with my own work in Photoshop and I think I come close, but not quite like this!

Awesome job.

These are amazing! Tobias and Tessa look unreal. They really capture the feeling of being there... minus the frost-bitten feets.

These photos are amazing! How did the bride fair the cold weather? I'm sure after seeing the photos she knew it was all worth it.
