Introducing the new Mrs. Bumgardner!

After dating for three years Kati and I finally tied the knot on September 5th. It was truly one of the best days of my life.We had a small ceremony with our families and a few friends in Paxton, Il (near Kati's home town). The ceremony and reception were beautiful. The reception was very elegant. We had an amazing caterer LA Gourmet, who provided some of the best food that I have ever eaten at a wedding. Kati's mother surprised me with a red velvet armadillo cake with grey icing (right out of Steel Magnolias).

I got asked by many of the guest what it is like to pick a photographer when you are a photographer. The answer is simple you look for the same things in a photographer as anyone else. For a wedding you want a photographer that you get along well with and who has a photographic style that you love. You have to trust the photographer to take amazing pictures.

It is still kind of strange having your picture taken as a photographer. All sorts of things are running though your head. What aperture, shutter speed, ISO, flash power are they using? Is that softbox placed to high? Does that pose look natural? You just have to let go and let the photographer taking the pictures take the wheel.


  1. Big time congratulations Nick! I hope you two enjoy a long life together!

  2. Vaughn and I are SO happy for you both...the photos turned out just perfect:)!!
