Lisa and Adam were the PERFECT way to end our 2010 season 🙂 We completely 100% adore them. If you’ve been keeping up with us for this past year, you know we’ve had some TERRIBLE luck with weather… It was as though a rain cloud was following us! When we woke up this Saturday morning and Mike told me that it was going to rain all day, I said, “Fantastico… let’s have some fun with this today!” You see, I KNEW that Lisa and Adam would be down for anything. I know I say this all of the time… but we really do photograph the best couples. 😀
When Lisa, who has VERY curly hair, heard what the forecast was, she did a switcho-change-o on her hair plans so that it could work with the weather. 🙂 BTW Lisa, I JUST noticed that you’re wearing the same shirt that you wore for your engagement session 😉 Must be good luck! …meanwhile… 😀 HAHAHA! This was, hands down, one of the best group of guys we’ve photographed. Remember… Adam is a percussionist 🙂 These two met in marching band (I THINK Lisa was a flutist???). Anyway, most of their friends are also band-o’s, who also happen to be my favorite kind of people. Generally speaking, there’s a unique set of characteristics that is almost always associated with musicians. 1) Comfortable in their skin. 2) Successful in life. 3) A bit eccentric. 4) Passionate, driven and goal oriented. And last, but not least, 5) You’ll ALWAYS have a good time when you’re with them… no matter what the situation 😀 Adam was lucky enough to have rented a tux that had never been worn. He thought that the pocket had been sewn shut (as many garments have when brand new). Mike agreed and handed him his pocket knife. Uhm… FYI for future grooms/groomsmen, it’s a faux pocket. 😉 …waiting for Lisa before their first sight. My view on the left, Mike’s on the right. So freaking perfect. 😀 It had quit raining for a bit… So, we quickly hopped into our car and drove to a few fun spots. Lisa is the DEFINITION of a “Fearless Bobbi Bride”. If you guys knew what this scene really looked like, you’d he throwing Lisa some high fives. Most brides would have been flipping their poopy. No no no… Not Lisa… she trusted me. 🙂 That being said, there were NO dresses harmed in the making of ANY of these images! 😀 OH how I’m in love with this!!!!! …it started to mist a bit… NOT TO WORRY! OUR FANCY CLEAR UMBRELLA TO THE RESCUE!!!! THEN… it was getting married time! This was one of the best ceremonies of 2010. Yeah.. I went there. 😉 That look on Adam’s face is SO 100% him! They wrote each other letters… the sweetest, most genuine, and quite hilarious letters… and asked their honor attendants to read them. Neither one of them had read the others before that day. That look on Adam’s face was during the reading of his. 🙂 It was, hands down, my favorite part of their ceremony… and I’ve never seen anything like it. If Mike and I were planning our wedding, we would TOTALLY copy 😉 …husband & wife, officially! I’m sure whatever I was doing to get that reaction was RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING! 😉 I couldn’t resist! Adam, thanks for being a good sport! Ladies and gentlemen… GET READY FOR THE ANNUAL TOP 50 OF 2010… because THIS will DEFINITELY be in the top 10! Are you freaking KIDDING me with this?! OHHH I’m SO proud of it! Lisa and Adam, thank you from the bottom of our little hearts for not being pansies and being willing to go outside, in your wedding attire, in the rain. 😀 Our favorite ❗ + ❓ …the best man’s speech… This face reminds me of Patrick Swayze in the final dance scene in Dirty Dancing when he looks at Jennifer Grey and mouths… “and I OWE IT ALL TO YOU!” (fast forward to 5:40ish) …incognito…

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
lisa: There are a few memorable moments I will keep with me forever. I LOVED our ceremony. I feel it was “us”, but what I loved the most about it was when our MOH and BM read the letters we wrote to each other. When Adam’s letter to me was being read, I was so overwhelmed with emotion….I felt like the luckiest girl on earth. Of course walking down the aisle with my dad was something I will always cherish, it’s the moment almost every little girl dreams of….but the moments before that when it was just the two of us (and Bobbi 😉 ) I will always hold dear to my heart. I don’t get to see my dad as often as I would like, so to have that moment with my dad before he “gave me away”, was very special to me.
adam: Seeing Lisa for the first time and seeing how gorgeous she was. Second moment: not crying AT ALL during the ceremony….at all….
What was your favorite detail?
lisa: I LOVED my dress. I loved every little detail about it and wish I had a good excuse to still wear it right now. I also loved my shoes. I insisted on NOT wearing white shoes and loved that it was my “something blue”. My “something old” was lace from my mother’s wedding dress and my “something borrowed” was a pearl necklace borrowed from my 92 year old great-grandmother and both were wrapped around my bouquet. It was important to me to have personal meaning in a lot of what we planned.
adam: Having bobbi+mike there! Being able to celebrate with all of our friends and family in one place.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
lisa: Uh, hire bobbi+mike….DUH! Seriously, not only are they the best photographers around, they are also genuine people who want nothing but for you to have the most perfect day and most perfect pictures. The pictures are what you will look back on to remind you how you felt in that exact moment. They are the best 🙂 Once you go bobbi+mike, you never go back!!! Also, just soak it ALL in…it goes by too fast…..and enjoy every single moment of it.
adam: Do whatever you want, don’t base your day on tradition or other’s expectations of how it should go. Plan your day not someone else’s. But, be sure to plan enough time to party! (We second both Lisa and Adam’s advice as officially the best advice ever, EVER!)
lisa+adam: Be sure you are able to tell Bobbi “YES” the next day….. HA!!! (HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!!!!)
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
lisa: Probably the Best Man’s speech….I had some explaining to do to my parents about a couple of his stories! OH, and when I realized I was holding Bobbi’s hand (more than once) when she was pretending to be Adam. I suppose I was just helping her play the part 😉
adam: Best Man’s speech, especially when he said, “I’m lucky enough to be Adam’s BM………” insert long awkward pause here.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
lisa: Absolutely not! The only thing we wish we had more of was time…..time to spend with our friends and family. It all happened so fast, I feel I didn’t get to see everyone.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
lisa: JAMAICA!!! We went all-inclusive and had THE time of our lives. It was the best vacation ever 🙂
adam: I went to Jamaica, too. We highly recommend go
ing all inclusive, it’s worth every penny.
Me with my brides 😀 I think this is, to date, the longest time period between two weddings. Jessica and Josh got married July 8, 2006. (a little piece of trivia: we shot our first wedding professionally on March 4, 2006). Adam and me, taking pictures. You know… the usual.
I just couldn’t get low enough… So, I put down a ziploc bag, hoping it would protect me from the elements, and laid back. (I had to get super low to get those wall signs behind them out of the image).
…it didn’t work. 🙂
❗ + ❓
PS. stay tuned for our annual top lists. 😀
that was awesome. i loved the rain shot so much. its going in my inspirational photos folder
love all of these!!
and I am pee.my.pants.excited about the top10 lists. hurry hurry hurry 🙂 xoxo M
your enthusiasm for this couple was just INFECTIOUS! Man, you can just tell they were so awesome to work with! SOO many great ones, but the colors in that street scene? If you squint, it’s like you’re looking at an Impressionist painting. AMAZING!
BTW: As someone with a sister 15-years-older than me, I have watched Dirty Dancing more than any 6 year old on the planet should. Meaning, I have it memorized. Meaning, when I came to that shot where you referenced it (THE LOOK…the best scene of the movie OF COURSE), I was all, YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!
You never cease to amaze me with your photos!! I’m in love. (And thanks for the comment on my personal blog. 🙂 I updated the $$.) I so want a bobbi+mike family session after our little one arrives. I wish I could rewind time and have you do our wedding…I’m so jealous of the daring brides you photograph too! Can’t wait to see the Top 50 lists.
Officially my favorite wedding of yours! Beautiful, fun, emotional, amazing! Love each and every image! Congrats to Lisa and Adam!!!
These are stunning! I’m always in awe of your photography. I’ve been following you for a while, and you continue to amaze me with the newness of each photoshoot! Always so creative, fun and candid! I wish I lived in your area, so I could get my very own bobbi and mike photoshoot!
You guys rock! Thanks for the inspiration!
You guys are my heros – every single wedding (and every single family/engagement session) is always the best one I’ve ever seen. And you’re funny. So all in all, you just plain rock!
You are right – the perfect wedding to end the year. Gorgeous pictures!
LOVE the ceremony shots, and the veil shot with them kissing up in the corner? SO AWESOME! She’s smile-kissing, which I think is the best 🙂
PS: Bobbi, love your heart hair clip. You’re the #1 cutest!
Dang, you two certainly know how to end the year with a BANG! now, dont’cha??!! And my fave? Ummm…the first one (awesome eyes), the Hooters shot, clear umbrella closeup, both clear umbrella walking shots, first “official” moment, groom clicking his heels, the toas–OH – did I say I had a FAVE as in ONE? No, no, no…lol
I love that you guys do more than just take pictures, they are creative images and the pride you take in making them is obvious. Am and always will be a fan. Love it. I hope to be in front of those lenses one day!!
Wow, what an amazingly fun and fantistic couple!
Awesome work! Okay, I HAVE to ask because this happens to me – when you walk into the venues wet like that, do you get weird looks from the staffers and other people involved? Just wondering haha! I get looks like what the hell happened to you, all the time when stuff like that happens. 😉
Ok. The pic of their kiss made cry!!!!! Soooooo much love and excitement! Also – nice tie, Mike!!! I’m literally saving that outfit idea for my man for our wedding. Lol. CREEEEEPERRRRRRR…….. 😉
Once again, fantastic pictures! Your work is inspiring, creative, fun, and fresh and I absoultely love it! I have been following your blog for quite some time now and still have yet to comment! So here it is! When it is my turn to get married (in the near-ish future), I hope to hire you! 😀
PS. I’m a “band-o” too! But I have always referred to them as bandies 🙂
As the mother of the bride you done an amazing job, you bring out the best in any situation, truly great pictures, love them, thank you for the memories!!
I absolutely LOVE your pictures! I was just recently married (12/11/10) and in planning my wedding became a HUGE wedding photography blog stalker. Yes, I said stalker. It became my favorite thing to do! Your blog became my favorite blog, mostly because it wasn’t just pictures but also stories of the day, who the people are, and you are totally yourself!! It’s absolutely fantastic. Obviously, I’m still stalking your blog, but your pictures are just wonderful! Thanks for providing me with a procrastination tool and just plain entertainment, and beautiful pictures to look at!
This is your long lost Mother speaking here. I love all the pictures and had a great time seeing you again. I especially like the street scene………….somewhat reminiscent of the Beatles Abbey Road, wouldn’t you agree? Ok, I know,you aren’t old enough. Well congrats on the awesome pictures.
amazing! dare I say this is my favorite wedding of 2010?? yeah I went there!
wow… they’re just amazing!! so gung-ho!
oh, i love the b+w one with the blowing veil… what a perfect shot!!! and heeheehee, i was giggling away at your ziploc bag story! 🙂
LOVE the one that you ‘love’ – that veil covering the majority of the shot except for their sneak peek is amazing. what a wonderful job you guys, the bride and groom and their wedding party did at making the most of the day and working with the weather. absolutely gorgeous!
Love it! I’m really digging the groom jumping with the umbrella and the veil shot. But it’s so hard to chose cause they’re all good!!!
I love these soo much!! they are so wonderful!! If you guys are still talking pictures when I get married in 10 years I’m having you take mine! It was an awesome wedding thanks for having us!
Love, your favorite cousin<33
Wow y’all – LOVE these! Bobbi – the reflection of you + the bride in the ring shot is awesome, it’s like a 2nd image in the image. 🙂 The shot of them walking across the street is just amazing, those colors! And I LOVE the one of them hugging in front of the window!
I don’t even know them and I want a copy of the street scene for MY wall! What an amazing capture, AS USUAL!
Bobbi and Mike, I absolutely love your work. My husband and I just used one of our pre-boarding passes for your class at WPPI. We look forward to meeting you. Thank you for all of your hard work you two are wonderful examples.
beeeauuutiful! the black and white shot with the veil…GENIUS.
LOVE these! Adore the black-and-white with the umbrella one…stunning! I find myself giggling all the way through your posts…LOVE THEM!
EVERY blog post should have a reference to Dirty Dancing! HA! Love it!
You guys are phenomenal! I just wanted to let you know that Lisa and Adam are awesome people (As i am sure you know) and I absolutely adore all of the pictures! They are beyond breath-taking!
That veil shot = perfection. I’m in love with it.
Whoa, these are incredible. The bride and groom have to be loving these. BTW…Mike if you need an attorney to defend you for destroying rental property, I know one (not a good one, but I know one) Very funny story. Bride and groom kiss=fire
these are fantastic… I love it when a Bride and groom are not fussy and high maintenance and just want to have the best day!
this wedding was so beautiful and expressions priceless, and you guys caught it ALL! AMAZING JOB!
WOW! The wedding pictures and the engagment pictures are just absolutely priceless. You truly captured their spirit, and the intimacy of such a special wedding ceremony. I laughed and cried looking at the pictures, it was just such a very beautiful day. We asked Adam & Lisa, if they could get married again next year so we could have such a great time, (again)…of course we would all have to pay a “cover charge”..LOL. Super fantastic Bobbi…the photography gods are with you.
Happy New Year,
Melany, (Adam’s Aunt), (and Lisa’s too)
So you are amazing as always!!! and Yes! Yes! Yes! Love your all time fav of them walking across the road. I had to just gaze at it for over 5 minutes it is THAT beautiful!!!
1. I’ve been trying to come up with my favorite picture and I just can’t…each one takes me back to that moment and I remember how special it was or the story behind the picture. Though I do have a few faves, it’s impossible to choose just one.
2. In the picture of the 4 of us, Mike looks like a GIANT compared to us!!!
3. THANK YOU for giving us something wonderful to look back on 🙂
GOSH these are so gorgeous! I am absolutely in love with your style. So fresh and clean. I don’t know how to do that yet! I’m so saturated. Love the work!
