When I first met with Tegan and her parents about their wedding I figured something was up with the date. It was December 19th, 2014. First off, December isn’t exactly prime wedding season, and why do it on a Friday? They actually had a very good reason. You see, it’s a tradition in Tegan’s family to get married precisely on December 19th. Her parents did, her grandparents did, along with several other family members, and they have all stayed together ever since. Talk about a unique tradition!

Now I’ve seen a lot of tacky Christmas weddings in my day. You know, the ones with the bright red bridesmaid dresses accented by green flowers and matching groomsmen with red vests and green ties? Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas… but that’s not exactly my cup of tea. I’m happy to say Tegan and Mack stayed far away from that, but still incorporated the Christmas season with some very tasteful and elegant choices. After a beautiful intimate ceremony at Lutheran Church of Our Savior everyone headed downtown to the Commerce Club on the 17th floor of the One Liberty Square Building. Decked out in thousands of Christmas Lights, candles, and beautiful centerpieces it was a perfect backdrop for a night of excellent food, dancing, and plenty of great holiday cheer!

There comes that sad time every year when I know, just know, that it will be the last chance I get to go to a shoot with the beautiful fall leaves still hanging on desperately to the branches. I’ve thought that more than once this year, but the leaves have hung around for a little extra time this year. Maybe they were just waiting for Megan and Philip’s shoot? Lucky enough for them, they did, and we had a great time running all over downtown capturing some great shots of them enjoying the incredibly warm weather we had that day.

Beautifully Colorful Fall Engagement Session | Kelsey + Chris

I have to admit, I’m usually not the most excited photographer in the world when the bride’s mom decides to tag along with the couple to their engagement session. No offense, but sometimes it can just be awkward to be all lovey-dovey with mom lurking behind the nearest tree.

Being a photographer herself, Kelsey’s mom decided to tag along to their engagement session last week. “Oh boy, not this again… she isn’t going to follow us around the ENTIRE time… is she?” I said (in my head of course), but it actually turned out to be quite the opposite. It was like having a little cheerleader follow me around: “ooo that photo is INCREDIBLE!” … “oh my God! How did you do that!?” … “look at that lighting! I would never seen that!” … “Kelsey! Look at this shot he just took, you look gorgeous!” Naturally, Kelsey and Chris got a kick out of the whole situation, and we had a blast wandering around on a beautiful fall day snapping photos, discussing photo tips, and just enjoying everyone’s company. Maybe I’ll have to change my mind about mom’s coming along!
