Happy New Year everyone!!!!  Ryan & Danice’s wedding is the first blog post of the year!!!!!  And what a fun wedding to end 2011 and start 2012!!!!  Everyone was having such a good time celebrating!  It was also Danice’s birthday!  My associate photographer Nate Robinson was shooting with me and I got my husband to be my assistant which meant that I also got a midnight kiss ;)!!  Speaking of a midnight kiss, somehow we got a countdown starting around 5,4,3,2,1 and Nate pulled out some ninja moves getting the table to the middle of the dance floor for Ryan & Danice to stand on for the balloon drop!  That was some fast timing!

I will start with Danice’s dress, the layers on it were so awesome!  Soft and flowing!

And if you are going to get married on New Year’s Eve, you are going to need a party dress!  Check out Danice’s reception dress!!!!

Nate hung out with the boys getting some getting ready shots!


I love that Danice come down the escalator to see Ryan for the first time on their wedding day!!!!

There was no way my squeaky toy or Danice’s efforts were getting this frown to turn upside down 😉  Still cute as heck though!

Beautiful bride, beautiful warm day and beautiful dress!!!!

while I was photographing the girlies, Nate was capturing the guys having some soccer fun!  If I am remembering right Ryan and most of his groomsmen have been playing soccer together for a long time!!

I love the angle Nate had on this next shot!

So I am pretty much in love with every shot of mine and Nate’s on this bridge :)  So I will show two, first mine second Nate’s :)

And proof that I am funny :)  Seriously though, these may be my favorite’s of the day :)  Real laughs are my favorite :)

The reception was decorated so elegantly, I loved the different clocks everywhere and the little champagne bottle favors!!

I love Danice & Ryan’s reaction to their friend’s crying :)

I have to say that one thing that really stuck with me at the end of the night was Danice’s grandparents.  I so much enjoyed watching them throughout the day.  Their love for Danice and their lasting love for each other was wonderful and inspiring to see.

And if Ryan didn’t know he had a keeper before this moment, he sure did then 😉  Sometimes a bump in your wedding like……say…..having the fire department come check for a gas leak……..could have sent a bride into a fit.  But that wasn’t the case here!  Love the next two pics!


and then the party got started :)

Happy New Year!!!

And to end the night with a little late night drive through!!!  Congrats and happy  2012!!!!!

You photographed this wedding at our venue on NYE and we would love to use some of the images in a slideshow for our upcoming open house. Of course they're all beautiful but we are really looking for anything that could showcase different layout options and unique ideas for the space. For example, the balloon drop, the firetruck, any overhead shots you got from the bridal nest, etc. I outlined this in my other email but we are hoping to use these images without a watermark. We are photographers over here and we would never ask to use images without giving credit, we just have some very picky graphic designers that don't want everyone's different logos on everything. If possible, we would like to leave white space at the bottom of each image and type a line reading 'Photo courtesy of Tracy Routh Photography' so it would match all of our other images. Would you mind? If so, I could meet you anywhere and grab a disc of images or if you could email the high-res files, that would work too. If not, we totally understand. If you wouldn't mind letting us know either way though, that'd be great. Thanks Tracy! Caitlin Ogren Assistant Manager, RMEP (01/14/12, 7:53 pm)
