• Don + Christine

Have you ever had something happen so spur of the moment that it totally makes your day?  Like randomly running into your best friend in Target or getting a refund check for tuition and then your mom saying you could keep it?!  (lovvve that!)  Well, that’s the type of feeling that I got when I randomly met Stephanie Fay at Airhorn’s and Lasers Party  at WPPI.  I fell in love with Stephanie’s blog after I saw her engagement pics on Jasmine’s blog. (I mean, she’s a Jstar bride too, of course I’m going to LOVE her!)  She has amazing talent, the sweetest husband and the most welcoming heart.  I was SO excited and honored to randomly connect with her at WPPI.  I was even more honored when she asked if I wanted to tag along for a session she was shooting while in Vegas! How fun is that?! I had the afternoon free before flying out on Wednesday night and so I was THRILLED to have the opportunity to hang out with Steph and her husband Stephen.


We met Christine and Don at the Venetian Hotel just off the strip for their session.  I’ve had clients in the past who have asked, “How long is too long to wait to do a Day After Session?”  A week? A month? A YEAR?!  Well, now I can officially say that it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been married! Christine and Don have been happily married for 11 YEARS! WOW!  It’s never too late to have awesome wedding pictures.  Christine and Don never had an actual wedding.  They were married during their lunch break at the courthouse and so this session was such a special time for them! Can you imagine?! Seeing your wife of 11 years in a GORGEOUS wedding dress for the first time?! I loved being a part of this session and I can’t wait to show you some of my favorites…. ok, maybe ALL of my favorites! Be sure to check out Stephanie’s blog as well!


How did we luck out with a teal bathroom? I don’t know but I LOVED it!

Their first look from a distance! So sweet.

Look at the dress!

Such models.  I loved watching them give Christine and Don posing examples, so cute. Michael, start practicing!

At first I was annoyed, but now I’m kinda liking the old guy in the background who obviously didn’t care that he was in the picture!

Christine’s shoes = awesome.

I know! I know! I’m blogging too many!! I can’t help it!

Steph and Stephen, thanks so much for letting me tag along and hangout for the afternoon. Can’t wait to see you again! … and for you to meet Michael!

    PLEASE don’t ever say you’re sorry for blogging too many pictures. Um… it’s kinda why I look at blogs like yours and J*’s!! I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love hearing what photographers have to blog about but the pictures are what I drool over. And this session is no different :) Not to mention that you were able to hang out and shoot with Stephanie and Stephen. SO fun! Fabulous job (as always).

    Gorgeous!!! And that is SO awesome that you guys got to connect!! WPPI seems to be an awesome place for that! Can’t wait to go next year.

  13. Amanda Hilborn reply

    These pictures are not only gorgeous, but it means so much more knowing they’ve BEEN married for so long already, it’s a different take on the usual first excited puppy love pictures we’re used to (aka mine that you just took, hahaha) and just shows that there are some happily successful couples out there still excited to show off their happy relationships I LOVE IT!
