Our family is Irish and Italian. A potent combination - we've got some feisty women and some loud men, but man is it fun. One of those special feisty women is my mother - the feistiness has been passed down for generations and I hope to one day continue passing on the fire. Snagging a Tauriello woman is quite a feat, so we applaud you Randy and welcome you into the fold!
Below, I've posted my mother's senior portrait - she will probably kill me for this, but since I was the photographer (and daughter) I'll have to conclude that I have some jurisdiction. My radiant mother hasn't aged a day.
And that's exactly what she does in these photographs - she radiates. But she's not the only thing that radiates - the fun that these two have together is clearly seen.
The whole day had a glow about it, and it was so superbly special to photograph a family member's wedding, surrounded by family and close friends. A huge thank you to those of you that made the day possible - our amazing make-up and hair specialists, Ashleigh and Jessica Bolling, Christina and Anderson, and my best friend Cameron for helping me set-up the decorations - it would not have been possible without your awesome help! Thank you to my dear husband, Dan, for being my second shooter - and to anyone else who picked up the camera for a shot. And last of all, thank you to all of our family and friends for making it a truly wonderful day.
Denise and Randy were married at The Barns Vineyard in Hamilton, Virginia, with idyllic flower arrangements created by Karin's Florist in Vienna, VA, perfect cupcakes by Shugar Shugar and catering by the always wonderful Savoir Fare.
