Grace and Johan
Air Force Academy Chapel
September 8, 2007
Do you remember this fun couple? We decided to recreate their engagement portrait! Johan cracks me up! Grace and Johan got married at the Air Force Academy chapel last month on a perfect, late-summer day. I love shooting at the AFA chapel; its dramatic architecture and colors are a photographer’s dream. In fact, everything about this day was picture-perfect, from Grace’s designer gown to their families’ traditional Korean costumes. It was a gorgeous wedding.
My talented friend Tamera Goldsmith second-shot this wedding with me. Mike has been off his feet for a few weeks, due to a soccer injury. I hope he feels better soon! Tamera, thanks so much!

Tamera and I met Johan at the chapel that morning. He was busy making last-minute planning phone calls.
Meanwhile, Grace was in a nearby building, getting ready.
Minutes before seeing Johan for the first time.
I loved his reaction when he saw her.
I love how this photo features the plane Johan flew as an AFA student, and also Grace’s fabulous gown.
They had a bright, sunny day for their wedding!
Somehow Grace’s wedding ring didn’t make it to the church, so her bridesmaid let Grace borrow her ring!
This is one of my favorites of Tamera’s many wonderful photos.

I walked past Grace as she was giving a private message to Johan on the videographer’s camera.
She looked so beautiful in the window light that I had to take a quick picture.

Later in the evening, Mike and I drove up to Denver to meet with Grace and Johan and their friends at a bar. Johan’s new brother-in-law (to be) owns the Pour House Pub in downtown Denver, and they had a great party on its rooftop patio.
