It would seem cliché if I said that Hayley & Pat are two of the nicest, sweetest, most easy going, down to earth, FUN, and gorgeous people inside and out – but I wouldn’t be lying one ounce because THEY ARE! Their wedding at St.Mary’s Golf & Country Club (we can’t say enough how much we LOVE shooting there! Courtney & Ashton are seriously the best at what they do – and SO nice!) was super chill, super stunning, and picture perfect from the moment we arrived. After their first look we zipped into town for some quick pics, then back to SMG&CC for their beautiful, emotional ceremony overlooking the golf course. While the cocktail hour was happening on the patio and inside of The Hideaway, we set off for a few more photos on the greens, then back for their first dance – and of course, some more sunset pics!
Thank you both for such an amazing, fun, perfect day – and for including us in it as your wedding photographers! xoxo

In Hayley’s own words (we blushed):
“As a bride I was a complete perfectionist and incredibly critical of how I was going to look on the day and appear in photos. I stressed over find the right photographer who would not only capture stunning photos but also put us at ease (my husband HATES having his picture taken).
It’s hard to put into words what Shawn and his assistant Joel did for us. First off - the photos are ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I mean, Pinterest perfect and that’s coming from someone who RARELY likes a photo of themselves. On top of that - Shawn literally did everything to make us feel comfortable and like ourselves. He met me for a meeting (that I called and in hindsight wasn’t necessary haha) to discuss my exact vision and wrote down every detail that I requested. The day of he showed up early, knew exactly what to do, was organized, kind & radiating positive energy all the while doing an outstanding job staying out of the way (not that he had to, you’ll want to be his best friend) while capturing every single detail. Our wedding was stunning - but somehow Shawn made it look even better digitally.
I am VERY particular when it comes to photos and a bit of a control freak as well - Shawn EXCEEDED every expectation of what my wedding photos could look like and made us feel so at ease that I felt 100% confident just doing whatever he gently instructed us to do.
Honestly brides, book him. Book him and never worry again about a single thing regarding your photos. Photos are the only thing we have to remember the day by when it’s all done - you want perfect photos and with Shawn you will get them (and have a freakin blast with him along the way). Seriously the best thing we did other than marrying each other was hiring Van Daele & Russell as our photographers.”
