Becky & Andrew- Married!

Another Kraus wedding?!?! Seriously I have to be one of the luckiest photographers around. Not only did I get to enjoy the company of this incredible family for Betsy's wedding, I got to join them again at the end of the year for her sister Rebekah's wedding. I'm starting to feel like just one of the girls!

Becky & Andrew.. I have been so excited to post these images for you! I am seriously in love with so many of them. But as the newest Kraus sister I had to play fair and be sure to narrow it down to exactly the same number of photos I posted for Betsy. :) Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day. Becky your smile is truly infectious... it's no wonder Andrew fell in love with you so quickly. It's hard not to respond to that thousand watt smile that stretches clear across your face. He was a goner before he even had a chance to collect his thoughts. Hold tight to one another always and I'm certain your beautiful smiles will only multiple from here on.

Love to you both! I hope Hawaii was incredible.... insert jealous smile here!

Checking her sassy self out...



Becky's smile was so beautiful and it never stopped all day long. 



Kind of in love with this ring shot... 


I'm not gonna lie.. pretty proud of these next two images. It was so dark! And yet we made magic out of the situation. :)


First dance 

Love me some mother/son moments...

and my newest favorite photo... the 4 Kraus sisters! So blessed to have photographed all three of these beautiful ladies weddings. 

What was the most memorable part of your day?
Becky: Everything was memorable, but the one thing that stands out was when our priest asked us to turn around and  look out at all of our family and friends who came to celebrate with us as we got up to the altar. It was truly wonderful!

Andrew: Seeing Becky for the first time.

What is your funniest memory from your wedding day?
Becky: The Big Heads of me, Andy, and the Marquette Eagle—and Andy’s cousin auctioning them off for us :) Also, Andy carrying me over his shoulder to the dance floor during the Grand March.

Andrew: My Best Man kissing me…… 

Any advice you’d share for future couples getting married?
Becky: Don’t stress over the little things, it will all come together! Make sure you have someone the day of to take care of any problems that may arise so that you can enjoy the day that you spent many months planning.  Don’t forget to take in the moments of your wedding day, and relax and enjoy it!  It really will go fast! 

Andrew: All the work and stress is worth it!

Would you change anything about your day if you could?
Becky: Absolutely not! It was an amazing day!

Andrew: Not a thing!
