I’m starting this post with a little flashback to 2009, when I first began working with the Barringer family. Here’s a shot from Sarah & Doug’s wedding, from all the way back then…
Now, it’s her sister Bethany’s turn…
I’ve known Bethany for a good long time… all the way back to my good ol barista days, when we worked together at Starbucks. She’s made guest appearances at quite a few weddings I’ve shot, and it’s so awesome to finally be able to be there for HER big day.
Bethany is such a fun spirit, and has found her perfect match in the hilarious Josh Huskey, a man whose goofiness is almost an art form in itself. I’ve been looking forward so much to shooting this wedding because of how much fun I knew it would be… and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Hope you enjoy these.
Shot #1: I passed by an open window where the groomsmen were getting ready and told them all to crowd in.
You’ve got to watch those reflections. you see me?
I know the neighbor across the street from the church will probably never see these images, but on the off chance he does, forever thanks for letting us hang out on your property for pictures.

the fun socks tie in nicely for me…I often got in trouble for wearing ridiculous socks that weren’t ‘dress code’ back when I worked with Bethany…
(now I wear outrageous socks to every wedding I shoot).
snagged some solo shots of the groom while he was waiting to see the bride for the first time.
oh the SUSPENSE!
but seriously, he was pretty nervous.
you can tell her can hardly stand it…
I was so happy to see such creativity with the bouquet. First time I’ve shot cloth flowers on a wedding day.

THIS is ‘them’…
Someone commented that they wondered what I told the wedding party to get these expressions. I don’t remember. But does it matter?
Time for the fellas to have some fun….certainly wasn’t hard to get them to pose a bit.
yeah. that was weird. But when a group such as this finds a random deer head hanging from a tree… well…
the girls were much more reserved.
ok, not really.
this little guy is the son of another talented local photog, Becca Alves. What a cutie!
Remember Sarah & Doug, from back at the beginning of this post? That’s their twins on either side of this shot…
close ups on the decor back inside. The musical references are for Josh, a very musically inclined guy. He kept us all entertained with his piano performances before the events of the day started rolling…
also one of the more unique cakes I’ve seen. Simple but beautiful.
ending it on the ‘walking down the aisle’ shot. Proud dad all over again!
There’s so much more from this big day, but I don’t want to absolutely overwhelm the blog. So if you’d like to see more, head to our facebook page, where we’ll be posting an extended preview album soon!
