Happy Friday everyone! Today, I am excited to share a very special wedding to both b and me. I had the distinct privilege of second shooting for b in her hometown of Lyons, NE and I had an incredibly awesome time!
Here is Lindsay’s La Brisa Wedding experience through her own words:
We wish we could fully express the value of La Brisa photography. First of all, both B and Chris are ARTISTS. The quality of work from these two photographers stuns you when you view it each time. We check their website on a daily basis for new photographs to drool over.
For our wedding in November of 2011, B and Chris made us (Bill and Lindsay) feel so confident and prepared; we had nothing to worry about. We had talked several times about what we were looking for the day of our wedding, and B and Chris fully delivered. They both came to our rehearsal to get a “feel” for the church, but they also introduced themselves to several family members, and they made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera.
That day, B was our main shooter, and she did a phenomenal job. From the time the day started, B and Chris were present making sure everything ran smoothly. We actually got behind that day getting our hair done, and B and Chris were totally flexible and calmed me (the bride) down when I began to panic. While B was shooting, Chris held my dress if needed, fetched food and water, and went above and behind what the “photographer” is expected to do (again, they are artists, but also both just such GOOD people).
B and Chris made everyone’s experience so phenomenal that day. From Bill’s grandmothers who are still talking about how “nice those young photographers were”, to our wedding party who can still be heard today shouting Thursday, to our parents who still can’t get over how they received their own CD of our pictures in the mail two weeks after our wedding. We have both been in several weddings, and pictures can be the dreaded part of the day. We, along with our wedding party, had so much fun because of B and Chris–everyone had a genuine smile because of them! We didn’t want them to ever stop taking pictures!
B and Chris started photos before 8 a.m. that morning, when we were at the salon to get our hair done. They did not stop taking pictures until the dance was almost over (around midnight). Never, in our lives, have we witnessed such dedication from two people to their profession.
Since our wedding, we have had many different people request their information so they could hire La Brisa. Several times, we have been approached and told that our wedding pictures were the best they’ve ever seen. People have mistaken fields near Lyons, NE for a beach in San Diego, CA… because, “There is no way that sunset photo was taken in Nebraska.”
The day after our wedding, B had our teasers up on Facebook, which was so amazing. It allowed all our friends and family who had not been there, or who had, to live the memories of our special day. As mentioned earlier, we had a copy of our pictures in our hands two weeks after the day of our wedding.
We did not even have a videographer at our wedding because we were so confident La Brisa would capture the emotion of our wedding day, and B and Chris did that and so much more. On a daily basis, we look at our wedding pictures online and the many framed ones we have up around our house.
So, without a doubt, wholeheartedly, we recommend the services of La Brisa Photography. They are insanely fun, so flexible they remind the bride to breathe when she panics, and truly are artists. B and Chris are personable, hilarious, and at the same time, true professionals in their field. Go La Brisa!
