I am looking forward to wedding season in 2018 to photograph all of the great couples in the Rockford IL area.
I’ve been picked now for the 3rd year in a row as one of the top wedding photographers in Rockford by Expertise.com (https://www.expertise.com/il/rockford/wedding-photography) For the bride that wants great images from their wedding, Jay Bryant is a wedding photographer that provides real moments and relaxed portraits, unlike other photographers.
Here are some of my favorite wedding photos from 2017 shot in the Rockford IL region.
This couple got married at Anderson Garden’s in Rockford. She had a stunning dress that really fit her style. More photos can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfUrRi1Uvvs&list=PL0348B2D97CC2B99B&index=20
Had a fun time shooting Emily and Josh’s wedding in Rockford. This was shot under the Jefferson Street Bridge. Please visit http://jaybryant.pass.us/emilyjosh/ for more photos from this fun wedding.
Images from Debbie and Mark’s wedding that I shot at Church by the Side of the Road last weekend. After the ceremony, we did a photo walk at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens in Rockford.
For 72 long years, the family of U.S. Marine Corps Pvt. Dale Robert Geddes was unable to say farewell to him with a proper burial.
They finally had that chance on Aug. 22. He was my mother’s cousin.
Geddes was killed during the World War II Battle of Tarawa in the islands in the Pacific. During the fighting, his remains were hurriedly buried. Unfortunately, they were in an area that came to be known as the “Lost Cemetery” because military officials were unable to find it for years.
Then last year, through the work of History Flight and the Stone Foundation, the lost graves were found and among them were the remains of Pvt. Geddes. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency confirmed Tuesday that the remains were those of Geddes.
