I’ve only shot a handful of weddings where the groom is in his dress blues, but I’m always excited when I get to! I’ve had a few brides from these situations tell me, “I had to find a killer dress because how can you look as good as a man in his dress blues?” Well, I’d say Kelsey nailed it. You guys, look close at her dress. IT’S PINK UNDER THE LACE!!! Seriously, like RIGHT after I got married I saw this for the first time and ever since I’ve been in love with blush dresses. My main wedding color was this shade of light pink and I’m kinda jealous because I wish I could have had a blush dress! *Back to the post, end of coveting* Kelsey looked beautiful in her dress. I know that there are all sorts of rules for things you can’t do in Military attire, but I don’t know most of them. So when I was posing them I told Reed to put a hand in his pocket and without a 1/60 of a second he says, “AR 670-1 states I cannot put my hands in my pocket”. I was so shocked by his super specific response that I laughed! How amazing is it that he has the exact rule memorized??! I was so stoked for this shoot for another reason though…. I BOUGHT MY DREAM LENS!! And I bought it like 3 days before this shoot so I could hardly contain my excitement to use it on someone besides my baby and husband (even though he is mega hot *insert flame emoji* and she is freaking adorable). In case you were wondering, the lens is an 85mm 1.4. In my opinion it’s the most dreamy portrait lens ever. And I love the results it produced.
Happy wedding day Reed & Kelsey!
