Man I am a lucky, lucky girl. First I got to photograph a beautiful couple, with their beautiful girl’s engagement session. Then I got to capture an amazingly beautiful wedding. For real people, I think I have the best job in the world.
So here is the deal, a few weeks back Lori & Jason got married, they took vows and became a beautiful family. The entire event was filled with so much joy and emotion, really it was my pleasure to be there. I have been working on the images for a while now, so I hope you are ready for a long peek, too much good stuff to share!A big thank you to the lovely Maricar for being my right hand woman for this wedding, a few of the images you will see below were taking by her.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Lori & Jason got ready at the Avalon Hotel right on the waterfront. Such a beautiful location. Lori’s details were so lovely, elegant and simple at the same time, I loved it. And yes those would be the bride’s hands tying the bow, even on her wedding day she was a mama first.
Jason also had some well thought out details, the matching ties and cuff-links rocked.
Check out our knock out bride and her flower girls (hers and his daughters) The cuteness is too much!
The girls were so sweet on the wedding day, they kept running around saying “we are going to be SISTERS!” seriously I could eat these two up.
Jason and he best man Ransom (maker of the best wedding toast ever BTW) also had fun with the getting ready. Maricar says they were quite entertaining.
So on the ceremony. The ceremony and reception took place at the Aquariva restaurant next to the hotel. A beautiful and modern location.
The ceremony was beautifully preformed by Lori’s grandfather. This kind and well spoken gentleman traveled from out of state just weeks after having open heart surgery! Just amazing. Such a sweet man too.
The whole ceremony was lovely.
So on to the portraits! “My” part of the day.
Ok for real, working with people this beautiful, kind and funny made my job way too easy.
I just loved the back lighting we got in this lobby area, I could have shot there all day.
We also went outside for a few. The Avalon is right on the river, and the cotton trees were blooming. Not so great for the allergies, but lovely for photos.
And one last one, we had serious fun with the rings on this one!
Lori & Jason thanks so much for having me out to capture your day. You two are fantastic, I wish you nothing but joy and happiness in your new life & family together. I will have much more for you very soon!
I will have much more from this wedding , a slideshow for sure. If you are a friend or family member feel free to leave a comment below and I will let you know when the whole gallery is ready!
