What a gorgeous day it turned out to be for Troy and Shari's wedding in Redding, CA! We were all sunshine, and then some ugly clouds rolled in to sprinkle a little, and then they moved on. This created the perfect lighting for their wedding day in Redding, CA. Anyone who has been to Redding in mid-May knows how hot it can be, and how harsh the sun can get. It couldn't have been more perfect.
I've known Shari for about 9 years. I worked with her a little when I worked at Walgreens years ago. We stayed in contact after I stopped working there. When she met Troy, I could see her gushing happiness. It was wonderful to watch these twos' love for each other blossom. When Troy popped the question, and Shari reached out to me about being their photographer, I couldn't have been more giddy with excitement! I instantly adored Troy when I met them for their engagement session. He is fun, outgoing, loud, obnoxious - I could see how much he loved Shari and how much she loved him. I couldn't wait for their wedding day.
Wedding day was here before we knew it! I met with Troy first to knock out his formal photos, and he had me laughing before I even started taking pictures! We were at the Old Diesel Horse Bridge in Redding, CA where numerous people walk, jog, ride bikes, etc. At one point, Troy wanted a photo with a bike. So what did he do? He stopped someone riding their bike and asked. There was some laughs, but it happened. It was priceless. We haven't told Shari (until now). Funny thing, later that day someone walked by with a beautiful dog, and Shari cracked a joke about wanting to ask them to take a picture with their dog. Yup, these two were made for each other!
Congratulations Troy and Shari on your marriage! You two are amazing and the love between you just radiates from you guys. It's contagious for all those around you. Here's to many many many years of happiness! Thank you for allowing me to capture your special day!
