A Southern Wedding Story
I’m staying in Georgia for the month and my plate has been full! With loving on my nephews and shooting for some of my long time clients, I haven’t had much time to spend with you. Please forgive my absence.
As soon as we arrived we were immediately immersed in wedding festivities for my baby cousin. My father and I photographed the wedding while my best bud Terri shot video. Patrick was a huge help with carrying most of my equipment and even shooting a few during the ceremony.
We started out shooting the dress and accessories while the girls were getting ready.
And once they were all dolled up,
her matron of honor walked her to her first look session with her soon to husband.
In case you don’t know, the first look is a quiet moment before the ceremony when the groom gets to see his bride in the dress for the first time. It’s nice for them to have this time to talk and maybe brush off tummy twitters and ease the nerves. It also helps to get many of the group pictures done before guests arrive. So that after the ceremony we grab the last of the group shots and the bride and groom can enjoy their time with family and guests at the reception.
This was such a romantic setting for their first look. Dad captured the twirl and I think this shot says it all. Just look at the sparkles on the water, and the sparkling bride!
We had fun with our group shots. Sillyness!
Her father walked her down a path of rose petals to her beloved. The ceremony was full of happy tears and laughter.
A friend of mine said “Nice shots, sweet but you just HAD to put cows in it ;-)”.
Yep. I miss the ranch, can you tell?.
Then the party began.
Love was in the air.
They matted an image from their engagement session we had back in May for folks to sign their best wishes to the happy couple.
And they exited amidst a glow of sparklers held by those close to them.
We were so honored to be a part of their special day. Thank you to Delta and Matt for being a delight to photograph. We wish you all the best. xoxo
