It’s such a perfect time to be married… for MANY reasons. 1. It’s not 110 degrees, it may be a little chilly at times but I would personally rather be a little chilly than dying in the heat! 2. It’s pretty much in the “Off” season for weddings and that means wedding vendors aren’t exhausted. I know this was true for me. I took a little break in October and hadn’t shot a wedding in over a month and a 1/2! I was ready to get back in the game! Whit and Sydni’s wedding was the perfect one to start back with! They had a BEAUTIFUL ceremony so focused on the Lord and the gift that marriage is. I loved it. Sydni was gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Her dress fit her like a glove and when she walked, it made her look as if she
was just floating across the floor. Whit and Sydni’s flower girls rang hand bells as they headed down the long aisle of Huguenot Baptist Church and the large white doors were closed behind them. The bridal march began and the doors were opened. Everyone rose and Whit had his first look at his bride….well, he had to jump up a few steps in order to see her above all of the guests. As they caught eyes, tears and smiles were exchanged. I love weddings. Everyone is happy, joyful and genuinely excited to celebrate alongside of the new couple. It’s a beautiful day. It was an honor to capture the many precious moments that made Whit and Sydni’s day so perfect. Besides Sydni tossing her bouquet right into the middle of the chandalier, their day was perfect:). I loved meeting their sweet college friends and even some faithful blog stalkers! It was an amazing day in the southside of Richmond and here are some favorites!! Enjoy!
So we had to play around with the light because it was a VERY bright November afternoon! But it made for some really different shots…. a challenge is always good every now a then!
Why is this is shot so great? Because Sydni has no idea that she just tossed her bouquet into the center of a chandelier! Love it.
When we first decide if we’re a good fit with our potential KJ Couples, we’re looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! We’ve found over the years that couples what take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for us! We love it when couples let their guard down and allow us to get to know them during their engagement session.
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
