Amanda & Will: winter in springtime

Wedding season is finally here, unfortunately, the weather hasn't caught up with the season. I met Amanda over the phone several weeks ago. She is being deployed to Iraq soon and hired me to photograph her wedding before she left.

I met Amanda and Will on the plaza at 8am Saturday morning. It was absolutely freezing! Ice had formed on all the fountains. Several times I thought my hands might freeze to my camera, but despite the cold, it was an honor to be a part of their day. It was just the two of them, as family and friends were all a half a country away. They married at a small roadside park in Mission Hills, KS. My husband came along with me and we both served as witnesses; I even found myself filling in as the role of bridesmaid from time to time. It just goes to show that being a wedding photographer can require wearing many hats. I was very happy I was able to be there for them. It is always fun to watch two people begin a new chapter in their lives together.
This was a great start to the wedding season.
To Amanda and Will, I wish you all the best in your new life together, especially in your time apart.

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
