Brengman Brothers Wedding | Shali + Jeff | By Anna


Everyone has a unique story, a beautiful story. And one of my favorites parts about being a wedding photographer is hearing those stories and getting to meet some of the kindest, most sincere people out there. And Shali & Jeff just might be the sweetest, most tender-hearted couple I have ever been privileged to meet.

Shali & Jeff’s day so perfectly mirrored their beautiful relationship. It began a few miles apart. Shali & Jeff were surrounded by their bridal parties and families in two cozy lake houses, anxiously yet patiently awaiting the day’s coming events. 

And soon the moment arrived. It was time for Jeff to see his beautiful bride for the first time on their wedding day. And what a perfect reunion it was. So gentle. So full of grace. And yet, quietly bursting with love and admiration. It doesn’t get better than that, Folks.

Soon, the pair was whisked to the hilltop vineyard where they exchanged vows, rings, and a kiss in front of their nearest and dearest. And then to the party! Dinner, drinks, dancing, and a whole lot of laughter and tears. Shali & Jeff, your wedding was so true and so sincere, and I am truly honored to have been a part of it. Congratulations!
