Family Wedding Photos | Colorado Wedding Photographers | Dusti & Andrew

So this was a fun one for me! I traveled to Elkhart, IN to do family wedding photos for my cousin’s wedding this July and it was special for me to photograph the nuptials of a young man that I have know since he was 5 years-old.

Family Wedding Photos

Andrew married Dusti on July 15th after a romance that started when they worked together at Walmart after high school. For me I first met Andrew when my first cousin started dating his mother, Deanna. I was swimming in my grand mother’s pool in Jupiter, FL when my older cousin’s soon-to-be new family arrived. I was about twelve years old and a pretty good swimmer. My future cousin had never learned to swim and was afraid to let go of the wall. Over the next 10 days I taught him how to float, then doggy paddle and finally freestyle across the pool. My cousin and his mother were married a year or two later, but that was probably the last time I saw him until I arrived in Elkhart to make family wedding photos.

Deanna pulled out all the stops in helping plan Andrew and Dusti’s family wedding! From the small church ceremony to the blow out party/reception at the historic Lerner Theater in downtown Elkhart these guys really did it up right. There was amazing food an open bar and even pizza delivered for the hardcore parties who stuck around until late in the night. Deanna, a DJ herself called in all her favors and got not only a friend as wedding DJ but the band PS Dump Your Boyfriend a killer party band who brought their huge stage show Pfreak to the ballroom for the wedding!

And I got to photograph that little boy who had grown up (he’s a lot taller than me now) marry the love of his life!
