I loved capturing this pre-wedding portrait session! Holly & Jeff are refreshingly no nonsense kind of people with hearts of gold. When Holly first called me to inquire about availability she told me she and Jeff really wanted their upcoming special day to focus on the people most important to them. To help with that she wanted to cut down on the time spent taking formals at the wedding. I loved this idea of freeing up time for them on their wedding day so we scheduled to do their portraits in advance at Jeff’s beautiful home in Westlake. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day, the light was gorgeous, and Holly & Jeff simply glowed. The love between these two is clearly palpable. I think it was a brilliant idea to take their formals ahead of time, having extra time makes for extra special portraits. I wish more couples would consider pre-wedding portraits. Stay tuned for images from their Smith Family Chapel wedding.
