Tera and Justin’s Abella wedding was a day of pure happiness. This wedding day was a highlight of my 2022 season, and this couple is so fun and sweet. They trusted my direction and suggestions and were up for anything I asked of them. They were truly the most ideal client to work with.
I adored shooting at Abella Weddings & Events! It has such a gorgeous space, and I would love to shoot more weddings here. Also, Tera and Justin’s wedding was definitely a highlight to my season!
Tera and Justin did not want to see each other until the ceremony. Most of my couples opt for a first look prior to the ceremony, so this was a fun change of pace! It added a heightened suspense and excitement to the wedding day. It also made that walk down the aisle so much more emotional.
One of my favorite moments of this day was Tera and her dad’s first dance. They started off their father daughter dance normal, and then busted out a super fun choreographed dance together! The couple also had a food truck for their guests as a late night snack. It was the best taco in a bag I’ve ever had!
By far, some of my favorite images from this Abella wedding were the sunset photos. Tera and Justin completely trusted me when I told them to run to the sun as soon as it popped out from behind the clouds just in time for sunset photos. The images came out STUNNING. Check out some of my favorites from this day.
