{Adena & Kerry}
I’m so excited to post their photos. I absolutely adore the passion these two have in their relationship and completely enjoyed spending every minute of their wedding day with them.

Looking back on that fabulous day…
It seemed like, what was 110 degrees outside..
The best “first site” picture from the groom (Kerry) EVER..
No guests when the wedding was supposed to start. Oh wait, there was a wreck..
The hair man DIDN’T wear his American flag pants just for the photos..
Bob, Nick, Cranberry, old man, whatever the hundreds of cat fish we fed were named..
Bets to push the bride in the pond..
Bets to push the photographer with all her equipment in the pond (grr)..
All the many aUnts..
The father of the bride busting his moves on the dance floor..
Of course the totally random boob grab when putting the dress on (proof below)..
“Oh that’s the money shot. Oh wait, that’s the money shot. Wait..”
The ring boys break dancing..
Did I mention sweating about 10 pounds of sweat off?..

Got any other crazy memories of the day, please feel free to share a good laugh or two below the photos by clicking on “leave comments!”

Congratulations Mallets. I was honored to get to be such a huge part of your day.

    I don't know what I like more about the photo of Kim… The armband or the expression.

  3. Kristin Mallett says:


  4. Michael says:

  17. Caleb says:

    You two are definitely perfect for each other. These pictures really capture that. I think if we were to come up with a boy band (based on that fantastic stacked photo) though that that would have to be our first albums picture. Just need to figure out who is playing or singing what. Cause sorry to say but Kerry might not be our lead singer….

    Beautiful photographs. I was impressed with your use of composition, because I felt that the variety of angles and perspectives created a more intimate view and fun alternative to most traditional wedding photos. Great use of Depth of field, lighting, and contrast. I really liked the use of backdrops in combination with subjects to create an interesting framework and/or compliment to the subjects(you guys πŸ˜› )
