Arm in Arm: Pretty, Pretty Portraits!

Hive, I kid you not:  THE MOMENT I was clear of any of our wedding guests, I kicked those heels off my feet.  They were K-I-L-L-I-N-G me towards the end of the ceremony, and despite the laughs from our bridal party, I dug for them from underneath the skirt of my gown and handed them to my new husband to hold, slipping the six pence into the pocket of Papa Dillo’s tuxedo jacket.  After our photographer gave the all clear sign, we all piled back into the sanctuary for some group shots.

And yes, in every single one of these pictures, I was sans shoes.

First up was Mr. A and I with Pastor Mark, followed by a couple of solo shots of us:

Then, we did pictures with my family.

We ended the portrait session with some fun shots with Mr. A and I and the kiddos!

All in all, the portrait session at the church took about 15-20 minutes.  Our photographer was seriously on the ball with getting people up for pictures and then moving to the next photo group.  It was a painless and quick process and gave us just enough time to get outside for some artsy group shots with the bridal party before heading to the reception!

How long do you expect your portrait session to take?  Married bees; was the portrait taking a painless process or did it seem to take forever? Anyone else take their heels off for picture taking? 🙂
