Claudia and Mike were married on July 9 at Aurora United Methodist Church, and their reception was at La-Vera Party Center in Wickliffe. Bert Wagner and I shot the girls getting ready at the Bertram Inn in Aurora.
Claudia and Mike are such wonderful people. I had the opportunity to get to know them a little better while chatting and drinking a few beers after the engagement session. They’re both so much fun to be around. I had such a great time photographing their wedding.
Where’d the flower girl go?
The entire bridal party was hilarious, although the guys were really good at being serious too.
The evening lighting at Colby Park was amazing. It’s one of the reasons I love shooting there. We didn’t have a ton of time at this point, so we were working really fast. Claudia and Mike were perfect at being totally natural. They did an incredible job. Bert did a great job helping me with the lighting.
Some friends put together a little surprise slideshow for Claudia and Mike. Everyone got a kick out of the funny and touching photos.
Congratulations Claudia and Mike!!
