Turnip Rose Wedding Photography | Weddings Turnip Rose {Colleen + Adam}

The Turnip Rose is a photographer’s paradise with its sweeping staircases, majestic fountain, dramatic front gate, and of course the atrium.  I knew right away that I was a perfect match for Adam and Colleen’s playful and laid back attitude (shout out to Chad for referring me!)  They’re those people who are so much fun, you KNOW their wedding is going to be the party of a lifetime, and you PRAY that you’re lucky enough to get invited.  Do you know anyone who was escorted into their wedding reception by storm troopers and a fog machine?  Didn’t think so.


Every bride needs a good pair of dancing shoes, right?blue wedding shoes

Working with a 2nd photographer is essential for capturing moments like this – Colleen and her daddy waiting to walk down the aisle at Holy Family Cathedral.

Another example of why a 2nd shooter is awesome – Steve Hoffmann captured this beautiful close up image…

I love a bride who bedazzles (look at the heels)! Adam begged to show off his studly calves, so we let him…jk, he didn’t really beg

A surprise appearance by the storm troopers caught Adam and Colleen completely off guard.

    Colleen and I love what we saw. How much fun! We are so excited to see the rest. Colleen loved the shoe shots, and my ankles make us laugh. Great job!
