Anna & Dan – October 18, 2008

October 23, 2008

On Saturday I had the PLEASURE of shooting with Justin & Mary Marantz at Anna & Dan’s wedding. Last summer I shot with Justin & Mary regularly but with my own couples to take care of this year this is my first second shooting gig of the season. It was so fun to take a back seat and really be able to look around and try new things. Justin & Mary have so much enthusiasm and so much love for their couples….we had a great day!

We started off at the salon on Saturday morning with Anna and her bridesmaids…they filled every chair!

The Marantz’s looking adorable as ever πŸ™‚

A bride’s work is never done…even a few hours before the wedding!

Come on – how cute is this PUG???!!!

One thing I really enjoyed doing was shooting Mary and Justin shooting! As I’ve shot weddings this year with my Assistants I’ve kept a folder of images they’ve taken of me shooting and they are really fun to have. I tried to provide a few to Justin & Mary!

Here Anna’s sisters help her get dressed!

I’ve never seen a crowd like this one waiting to see a bride come down the stairs – it was so emotional to see everyone tear up at the sight of Anna.

Beautiful fall colors pop against the dresses!

COME ON Part #2 – look at the sign! These kids were so well behaved both coming down the aisle and being introduced at the reception – no tears at all!

At this particular church we were required to stay five rows from the front and not go any closer. A bummer but also an opportunity to get cool wider shots!

A bubbly getaway πŸ™‚

Justin & Mary back in action….they are like super heroes πŸ™‚

A beautiful cake

There was electric energy in the room as Anna & Ben were announced in and I love how they spontaneously ran around the circle of their friends getting high fives πŸ™‚

This guy was TEARING IT UP on the dance floor and the floor was packed the whole night!

Justin & Mary – thank you so much for having me along – it was a blast as always!!

Awesome job Amanda. I love the shots of everyone waiting for the bride. How about those kids SO ADORABLE! The church shot was beautiful. Of course the shots of the Super model/photographers are great too πŸ˜‰

Lots of great shots here! Love the one of her in the salon. Another favorite is when she comes downstairs and, like, the whole town is waiting to see her! That is awesome! The bubbles outside the church is perfect! Of course the shots of Justin and Mary are great, too. πŸ™‚

Amanda – Love that shot of the bridesmaids… beautiful colors! And of course the shot of the pug is precious πŸ™‚ It must have been nice not to worry about every little detail, you are so lucky to second shoot with Justin and Mary!!

Amanda, these are GREAT! I love the church shot! You captured so many details and so much expression!

Ahhh we missed our Mrs. Herzberger!!! Like Justin said (um about fifteen times)…..”it was real nice workin’ with proper villains again!!” Yea, he loves that movie.

You rocked it OUT girlie!! LOVE that intro, high-five shot!
