I was given the chance to be a part of Jessica and Bret’s wedding and this was truly an honor. I met Jessica almost 3 years ago when she capture my sweet baby boy just days after coming home from the hospital (Jessica B Photography). As the years have past I have become friends with her which is always a blessing to have strong, intelligent, talented, beautiful (as you can see I can keep going on) women in your life. Her day was as breathtaking as she is in life, her career and in these pictures! Wedding Date: 9/24/2011
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met in high school and have been friends for over 15 years. We spent years as close friends but never dated until life reconnected us in 2010… and the rest is history!

Any advice you’d give our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Pinterest, start an inspiration board and stick to your ideas. DETAILS MATTER. As a photographer and a bride, the details are vital to a successful event. And find the right photographer- someone who you would be friends with outside of your event. Its key to getting to know your real selves and getting real and amazing photos.
Your favorite part of wedding planning? Dress shopping was an amazing experience!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Videographer!!! My biggest regret is not having a videographer and having our day to show again and again.
