Laura & Chris: JW Marriot Wedding Sneak Peak

Posted by Studio222 Photography | 2:22 PM | | 16 comments » | Share on Facebook


Laura and Chris, whom you may remember from their oh-so-adorable interview and engagement session a few weeks ago, tied the knot last Sunday at the JW Marriot Grande Lakes here in Orlando. Their wedding was beyond beautiful and I cannot say enough good things about the entire staff at the JW. From start to finish, the day went on without a single delay and we were even spoiled rotten with an extra hour for portraits when the bride and groom snuck away from the reception with us. :)

Laura and Chris have quickly become some of our favorite people to photograph. They are so genuinely fun, so sweet to each other, and so effortlessly in love that they are just complete naturals in front of our cameras. There were multiple times during the day when I started to give them some direction and before I could finish my sentence, they would already be doing exactly what I had in mind, but even better!

Not only was this wedding especially fun for us since we had gotten to know them both so well during their engagement session, but Laura works at a school that I used to work at in college for autistic children called the ABC Schoolhouse and a bunch of my old co-workers were in attendance. (Hey guys! XOXO!)

Laura & Chris,
Have fun in Hawaii! We cannot wait to finish the rest of these images for you. Thank you for including us in such a fabulous way on your wedding day and for trusting us completely. We feel so blessed to have gotten to know you both and wish you years and years of wedded bliss!


Laura, are you kidding me with this? You are so beautiful!

Nate has been rocking the face off our ring shots lately:

An afternoon thunderstorm provided us with some epic skies...

The sheer magnificence of this art display almost made me go cross eyed...

Oh hai!

Boom! Best sunset ever!
