These Five Sisters Did A Photo Shoot To Thank Their Parents For Paying For All Of Their Weddings

The photo shoot of them in their wedding dresses is almost too cute.

1. It costs a lot of money to pay for one wedding, let alone five.

2. That’s why sisters Lindsay, Becky, Kelly, Cassie, and Jamie, all née Walitsch, decided to thank their parents for their support with a surprise photo shoot of all of them in their dresses.

Cassie (second from left), suggested the idea to her wedding photographer, Rachel Blackwell. Blackwell was also the photographer for Jamie (second from right) when she got married last June.

“She pitched me the idea about six months before Jamie’s wedding, and we put the shoot on the calendar for one week after, like the day after she came home from her honeymoon,” Blackwell told BuzzFeed Life.

3. Blackwell knew the shoot had to happen immediately, because the odds of none of the five sisters being pregnant at the same time were pretty low.

In fact, four of the five of them did get pregnant in the months right after the shoot, Blackwell said.

4. On the day of the shoot last July outside San Jose, California, they got their hair done together in the morning and made sure to wear their wedding-day shoes.

“They all helped zip each other up and were talking about their own wedding days,” Blackwell said. “They were having all kinds of fun, while the husbands hung out at the house they got ready at and watched all the children. “

5. They also toted along framed photos from their wedding days.

Cassie told BuzzFeed life that the shoot was intended to be “a small and fun way to thank our parents for supporting us and our marriages over the years.”

12. Blackwell’s favorite photo of the bunch? This one:

“It’s nothing special, just a clean classic image of all the girls hugging. I would want that image if my daughters did a shoot for me like that.”
