Weddings & Couples

Nicole & Bruce - Engagement

After taking some time away from photography in 2017, it was nice to get back into it again with Nicole and Bruce.  As I've said many times before when posting my shots, I always seem to luck out with getting great people to work with, and Nicole and Bruce were no exception.

Ahhh!!! I love them! Great job Aaron, I’m so happy we have you to capture our wedding day on camera!
— Nicole

With a bit of a doubtful start to the day due to weather, we ended up having a great walk along the beach, and ended up with some sun after all by the end.  It's always fun to work with people who are just there to have a good time, and who genuinely are just happy being with eachother... it makes my job so much easier.

So, it was literally a nice way to get my feet wet again after a little break (thank you lake).  Here are a few shots from the day...

Steacy & Joe

This was a great way to wrap up the year.  After a short Skype conversation, I I knew Steacy and Joe were going to be great to work with.  They're both very easy going, never seeming to take anything too seriously.   Joe and I do similar work (when I'm not photoing I do visual effects and animation), and when we had the usual meeting to take care of the contract earlier this year, Joe and I probably spent just as much time talking computers, software, and rendering, as we did talking about the wedding day.

They definitely planned some fun and unique things for this Halloween themed wedding.  There were masks, piñata, and a giant dancing LED robot man... JBOT!   Alot was jammed into the day, and it seemed to go by super fast, as usual.

So, while it was a bit cool outside, we lucked out with sun in the afternoon, and some nice overcast light in the evening for our quick walk around downtown.  All in all it was a great day, and it was lots of fun spending the day with these two.  Here are a few of my favorite shots...


Melissa & Dan

Melissa is an old family friend.  My parents and her parents were friends, and I've know her basically since she was born.  Her parents are also my god-parents.  One family was always visiting the other, and between her sister and my sister, we were always playing together growing up.  When she announced her engagement to Dan last year, I said I would be happy to shoot for them.  We did an engagement shoot last fall, which you can see here.

It was great to be able to get both our families together again on the wedding day.  While we don't get together as often as when we were young, our families do still occasionally get together.  So, while I was officially "working", it was nice to have my whole family there too, to actually see what I do at weddings finally.  During the reception, my son was constantly running up to me and hugging my leg, and then running around on the dance floor with the other kids.  He had a blast!

The day seemed to go by very quick, as most do.  As always, the Grande Olympia is a very nice reception hall, and the garden for the wedding was completely new to me as I'd never noticed it there before.  We were treated to great weather, despite the fact we are getting a bit late in the season.  Here are a few of my favs from the day...

Amanda & Adrian

Another down on the farm family wedding!  This time, it was Christine's cousin Amanda who came to me about a year ago to start talking about the wedding.  Here we are, a year later, and the big day finally arrived.  The home and barn (well, more of avehicle garage for farm equipment) Adrian had built were amazing.  I've never seen a cleaner barn.  There wasnt even dust on the cinder blocks where I put down some of my things when we came in to start the reception.  I was amazed at how well they decorated such a huge space as well.  It realy was transformed from a large empty barn into a great reception hall.

Aaron’s work captured our day better then we could ever have imagined. The memories in our minds translated perfectly into the beautiful photos Aaron took.  All the details, all our people, and all our memories are all caught up in these incredible images and we truly cannot thank Aaron enough for spending the day with us.

It was also another great day working with great people.   It always seems that when you get rain on you're wedding day, you see what people are realy like in how they handle it.  While I always do my best to reassure that rain is not realy a bad thing, some people cant get passed it, while others just take what comes.  I'm glad Amanda and Adrian were the latter.  And, while the weather didnt start out great, the rain eventually ended in the evening and we were treated to some great evening light, and a big full moon later on. 

Here are some of my favorites from the day...
