Amanda was given my information from a fellow photographer that was already booked, and I'm so happy she did. After meeting with Amanda, I got to know her a bit. Unfortunately, I was not able to meet Ethan at the same time (which I normally do like to do). There was good reason though. He currently serves in the Marines and is stationed outside of Chicago. Being in the military, means many sacrifices on both partners sides, but after (finally meeting Ethan), I knew that they would make up for any missed time. From the moment he saw her coming down the aisle, Ethan's eyes were on Amanda the whole time. As the day progressed we headed to the country club where we did most of the portraits and bridal party pictures. The whole day went so smoothly that it was such a great day! Towards the end of the reception, Ethan was coaxed into a karaoke version Piano Man (we were told the back story of this), and blew away the entire crowd! Nice job! A big shout out goes to my second shooter for the day - Blonnie Brooks - her coverage of the guys getting ready rocked!
