My First Wedding Shoot

Last Thursday, I had both the privilege and the honor of attending the wedding of two very good friends. Like myself, they have a unconventional relationship, but the love they share far outweighs the obstacles they face.

I not only watched this day unfold before me, but was thrilled to photograph it as well.  I know from a technical standpoint there is much work I need to do, but I am very pleased my my first attempt results.

Wanna take a peek?

It snowed the day that A and Z became a couple and it snowed on their wedding day, as well. 

We're here!!  Nervous happiness filled the air.  

Such a stunning venue. 

A and his stunning mother...so thrilled for this day!!  

Not a dry eye in the house!!  Such a touching ceremony.  

Capturing the love and excitement as two, become one. 

It's official!!  Love their smiles!

A great day in D.C.

Wedding Reception in The Cavendish Suite at The Renaissance, Portsmouth, Virginia.  The waterfront view of Norfolk, VA through the window.  

Red Velvet Wedding Cake paired with opulent wines, champagne, and prosecco.

United as One

This is Home Girl and I am house sitting while these two are honeymooning in Aspen, CO.  No, I'm not hating...not at all!

Thank you for sharing this. It was beyond beautiful, and like Luke (or "Bink" as I see him referred to on Facebook), I too wish I could have been there.

You have such a gift! I know you must always be thinking, "I need another lens now!" to add to your equipment. I really need to do more with my new camera--I just haven't felt much like getting outside with it.

So glad you're going doing more with yours.

I had the opportunity to photograph a friend's wedding over the summer and it was so wonderful getting to be a part of their special day and capturing those moments they will treasure forever! What a handsome and happy couple :) All the best to the newlyweds!!!
