No doubt you’ve heard the following story: Girl meets boy… boy makes girl laugh… they fall in love… they marry for love. And they live…? Well, if you know the story, then you also know the ending. The amazing truth is this is precisely Jamee and Jeff’s story. She loves the way he makes her feel, and that she can always depend upon him to help her laugh in both the best and worst of times. They’re simply made for one another, and it shows when they’re together.
When we first met Jamee, she was clearly “our” bride. She’d found us through the sister of a groom whose wedding we’d photographed in 2005 (see Jen & Ed’s wedding). We spent lots of time together talking about how she and Jeff met, their lives together, and how much she loved our photography. We were truly impressed by how in charge they were of their wedding plans. The primary thread that came out of our conversations was how important it was that their pictures remind them of the *people* that surrounded them on their wedding day. So we worked with her to design a timeline that would help Jamee and Jeff relax and have fun during a natural portrait session, and we also kept on the lookout for the great variety of faces of their family, friends and guests. One beautiful segment of the day involved the signing of the ketubah while surrounded by their closest family and friends, followed by Jeff’s veiling of his bride before their public marriage ceremony (click the picture above for a larger version).
Anthony’s was a very accommodating venue, and the staff was very cooperative. Jamee and Jeff made sure we were very well cared for and fed with an excellent multi-course meal (thanks so much! we really appreciate it!). And we loved the music provided by Ed Michaels Orchestra, complete with horn section and the incredible vocals of Debbie Major.
We’re hard at work preparing their online gallery, which will be available soon in the “Client Proofs” area of our main website. But until then, enjoy this slideshow preview of Jamee and Jeff’s wedding (PC only… sorry, no Mac). It will give you a good idea of the beautifully touching and heartfelt moments that Jamee and Jeff shared. Feel free to leave your comments on this blog, as we’d love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!
More with Jamee + Jeff.
Ulysses - Thanks so much, Priscille! And let me tell you, your help with rounding up family members was invaluable. We truly meant it. It allowed us to concentrate on getting the shots so that we could keep everyone interested and moving along. And I know Jamee and Jeff appreciated the help, too. More pictures are only days away! Stay tuned. Hugs! 🙂
