Aryn and Tyler at Bear Mill Estate
I don’t even know where to start when it comes to Aryn and Tyler’s wedding day at Bear Mill Estate. Should I mention the absolutely perfect weather? Maybe how awesome it was to photograph a first dance that was outside in the forest? How about Tyler’s ridiculous socks – yeah, that’s a good place to start.
Tyler had ridiculous cat socks. And they were amazing.
Wedding days are awesome because even though I typically know a lot about my couples going into the day, the craziness of their wedding day still lets me learn a few things about them that I wasn’t aware of yet. For instance, how Tyler has an ‘I Love Mom’ tattoo in a not so mother-approving location. Or, how Aryn is probably one of the most animated brides I’ve ever shot. Oh, and how crazy they are for each other – there’s that, too.
I also never know what any of my shots are going to look like before going into a wedding as I just let the day unfold in front of me. I walked away from the wedding with easily one of my most impacting, emotional moments I’ve ever shot between Tyler and his sister Samantha seconds after Aryn and Tyler were officially married. Their dance location was AMAZING as they danced in front of their guests under lights and surrounded by trees. And they had BBQ for their wedding dinner, come on now!
I can’t say enough good things about Aryn and Tyler’s wedding, just that I am sad that it’s over!
My partner in crime Chris helped me shoot this one. Below is a small collection of our favorites from the day!
