Leedell & Heikki’s Wedding Photos

“The Poker Champ & The Designer”

During our pre-wedding consultations, one thing became very clear to me; we have to include poker somehow. Poker is more than a game to Heikki. The groomsmen are serious players – even poker champs. It was only fitting that we include this in the photo shoot.

For the shot above, I had Clarence holding my flash directly above the groom to create a more dramatic scene. I then employed the groomsmen, who were happy to stand of chairs and drop cards on the groom. I wanted to use my vid light, but had to resort to flash instead in order to freeze the falling cards. One of my favorite shots of the day.

Leedell’s dress has one of the coolest features I’ve seen in a wedding dress…POCKETS!!!!

I almost wish every wedding dress came with pockets. Totally my style; adding something casual to the most formal dress you’ll ever wear.

Congratulations Leedell & Heikki! I love how well we all worked together. I loved seeing how excited you both were every time you saw the shots on the back of the camera… Okay I’ll admit, I was a bit exited to see a few of them too! I just wish I was able to get the shoe shots before…well, you know;)

Big thanks to Clarence for assisting me all day. Couldn’t have done it without you.

    Gorgeous photos! I would love to know the designer and style of this dress! I’m getting married next summer and this is very much what I am looking for.
