Shannon + James had one of the most amazing weddings I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing! I had to pinch myself throughout the day because I just couldn’t believe all the love and fun I was witnessing! From all of their genuine friends and family sharing love, support, and laughter, to the incredible venue, The Farm at Eagles Ridge, their funny dog Sophia getting in on the action, James’ awesome Vespa that he took Shannon for a ride on, as well as rode down to the ceremony on while the song Kashmir by Led Zeppelin was blasting, to the heartfelt ceremony performed by James’ cousin, the super chill Hookah Lounge, a sword and dagger cake cutting, and a toast by Captain Morgan that had me in stitches! This wedding had it all, Shannon and James’ personalities shone through and their love for each other was so intense and plain to see. I also had my dream team with me to help capture it all, Pam, who I call my right hand Pam, and the lovely and super talented Danette who totally crushed this wedding with me, thank you! I’ve included some of Danette’s handy work in this post as well. And if you want to see even more photos from this wedding click on over to the featured wedding here. A HUGE congratulations to Shannon and James, we were absolutely honored to be there on your day of days!


  • Jennifer - These two seem like the coolest people… ever.

Here is the final installment on my look back at some of my favorite wedding photos of 2016, this being the Reception category. As I was putting this post together it dawned on me that I started Laffler Photography ten years ago! Holy smokes, a decade! It still fills me with great joy to be the one to capture these moments for my couples. All we have are our memories, and sometimes photographs help us to remember. Not to mention future generations may enjoy seeing  just how “silly” their parents were long ago! I want to give the biggest THANK YOU I can to ALL of my couples, past, present and future who entrust me to be the one to document their day of days, it’s not something I take lightly! Enjoy…


  • Will hughes - Loved all of the “Best of 2016 Reception” gallery, but particularly the wider b&w shots. Beautiful grand scale photographs that still capture the intimate moments, brilliant.
