Traci and Tom’s Wedding!

All these years in my career, and the pressure was FINALLY “on!”
Traci is a good friend from Art School; a fellow photographer who is an absolute sweetheart with a smile so bright, a laugh so real, eyes that sing, dancing abilities like you’ve never seen and a heart of gold! And who did she marry? None other than Tom, another artist and a great guy with all the same qualities! They are a match made in heaven, that Muffett and Boris! But I’ll tell you, because of Traci and Tom’s artistic bent, I really wanted to create images for them that were real, like their personalities, but images that also portrayed their love for one another in a contemporary way – I think I’ve “done good,” as the saying goes! I have a TON of beautiful and emotional images from the day that I believe depict all the happiness, love and splendor shared between two people surrounded by an intimate group of family and friends!

The ceremony was held at Traci’s father and step-mother’s home in Gibsonia; a beautiful setting where the day was perfect, well, until that storm whipped up later that evening! Never-no-mind! Nothing dampened anyones smiles or spirits and the party lasted well into the night…
I can’t even begin to express my gratitude, delight and honor to participate in such a special day for such a special friend and her wonderful husband and family! Thank you so much for having me with you and for trusting me to create and capture your memories for you. Enjoy the show!
BIG love, Joanne Bartone, Photographer

    Joanne, Joanne, Joanne, WOW, not only are you a fabulous photographer, but a magician as well!! You did an excellent job hiding my least favorite flaws! You hid my chin(s) oh so well, that’s priceless!! We love all the pictures! I am so glad I was able to reconnect with you, and that you were able to shoot our wedding. Tom and I have both always complained that we don’t photograph well, but you took so many pictures that we really love of eachother! Thank you so much for everything! I was so glad you were able to stay after all your hard work was done and catch up with us, we really had a great time laughing with you! We look forward to seeing the rest of the photos! Take care, talk to you soon! Love, Mr. and Mrs. Waters
