Shawn and Stephanie are back! If you didn't see their engagement session, you really should because it was awesome on a very not awesome day. We just had a ice/slush storm the previous day and it was freezing and raining but the photos turned out great! You can view that blog here: www.gauperphoto.com/blog/shawn-stephanie-engagement
Their wedding was on New Years Eve at the Raddison and it was amazing. They had a 1920's theme and everyone dressed up for it which is always fun. Her dress was just incredible as well, as far as beaded dresses go, it was one of my all time favorites! What I remember most is laughing a ton and while editing their full set of images, I couldn't help but smile through most of it because of how he makes her laugh. It is my favorite thing. I say it a lot about how much I love how grooms look at their brides, but this is a whole different level. Stephanie's face lights up when he tries to make her laugh. It's not a fake laugh either, it's little moments of pure happiness and that's incredible.
What an excellent way to end a really great year of weddings. Being part of so much laughing and joy and helping to make people comfortable enough to just be playful and have fun has been an absolute pleasure for me.
I can't wait to do it all again this year!
