Elizabeth & Justin wedding photographer – La Crosse, Wisconsin

August 2nd, 2009 – This past Saturday, I was the wedding photographer for Elizabeth & Justin in at English Lutheran Church in La Crosse, WI. I tell ya… it was a beautiful day for a wedding and it couldn’t have happened for two nicer people. They’ve got a bunch of pictures of which I took! There was so many little moments that couldn’t be missed, so I did my best to get them all.

They did not want to see each other prior to the wedding, I started with Elizabeth with the bridesmaids in their dressing room. There’s this dry erase board in there which is always fun for me to see at each wedding I shoot at English Lutheran as the bridesmaids always write something fun on there…

Elizabeth had a beautiful dress as well as a tiara. Everyone was making sure Elizabeth was looking ever so stunning on her wedding day…

Next thing you knew, the wedding ceremony was to begin. After a small prayer, the bridesmaids left and Elizabeth was left to wait for her father to walk her down the aisle to see her soon-to-be husband…
