Laura and Alex celebrated their commitment and love to each other on a ridiculously warm day in Manhattan, KS. Their day felt so comfortable and intimate. Everyone interacted like family as if they had known each other for years. And I think that that is such an example of Laura and Alex. They are personable, affable and fun-loving which was pervasive amongst their families and friends. Everyone was so kind, welcoming and accommodating to Courtney and me. I was able to create one of my favorite bride and groom portraits ever thanks to Laura and Alex’s trust in me. On the rooftop of a parking garage, I was able to photograph Laura and Alex walking through the frame and I absolutely love the way Alex is looking at Laura and the elegant movement of Laura’s dress. Everything was perfect. Thank you again for trusting me with your wedding!

A huge THANK YOU to Courtney Leigh Photography for shooting with me!

In Laura’s words…
“I highly recommend Chris and the whole la brisa team! One of my favorite things is that Chris can get great shots of you even if you are a little tense and nervous! In addition, Chris helped make my wedding day very stress free and fun. He was great about keeping in contact and helping me get all my pictures without doing a first look. He literally planned the whole day out and kept us on track! Chris has a great eye and can set up amazing shots in any setting.

To any bride that wants a stress free wedding and wants to know they will have all the moments captured should book La Brisa!”
