Weddings, guys in tuxes, gals in dresses, mother-in-laws-to-be, churches, receptions, drinks, food, dancing, repeat. Yet sometimes, the passion and uniqueness really shines through. Sometimes, as an editor I open the files and think men in tuxes, women in dresses. And then it unfolds…

Nabely and Mike getting married are just that. First a bride and groom getting ready for a wedding (this happens thousands of times a Saturday). And then just how beautiful Nabely is begins to shine through, how excited and in love she is begins to appear as she becomes comfortable with the camera. This, this happens a lot. It’s our job as photographers, get the bride and then the groom comfy, get them used to us, and then capture it all as they celebrate.

Then there is Mike. It’s a Saturday in the world and there is a guy in a tux making one of the biggest commitments of his life. Sometimes, in a groom, you can see their awareness of the gravity of the decision.

As I continued editing this wedding there were many amazing things that made the day shine. The Basilica of Mt. Vernon, an absolutely beautiful cathedral, and a reception at the Evergreen, a Historic beautiful building that’s also a Museum and Library on a chunk of land maintained for the purpose of being seen. The right touches of Southern significance and classy shabby chic in both the venue and the details. At the Evergreen, with an amazing catering provided by Taliya at Linwoods; flowers by Wicked Willow, Lighting by Event Dynamics and all coordinated by Becky Vanderbeck at Simply Chic, you really just couldn’t go wrong.

As the images move on we learn a few things. We learn the bride is really funny and very excited to marry Mike. But of Mike we see his boyish excitement, his love for his friends and more than anything, we see his charm. We can see in the pictures the charm and honest love that Mike stole Nabely’s heart, and leaving her no choice but to steal his last name.

Engagement Session Ideas and Tips!

I love photographing weddings, but its engagement sessions that always make me feel like I really get to know the couple.  It’s a time to celebrate your engagement, relax in front of the camera and get some stunning photos of the two of you!

Here are a few tips:

Clothing

  • It’s a special photo shoot so feel free to get all dolled up, but wear clothes (and shoes!) that you can move in.
  • Add a pop of color!  A bright scarf can also make a great prop.
  • Think about getting your ring cleaned so that it really sparkles in the photos!

 Locations

  • Pick a place you love and that has meaning to you for at least some of your photos.
  • Think about the time of day and how many people will be in the area.
  • Think about having an iconic historic background or maybe something more intimate at your favorite café.

 

Keep an eye out for more photos and tips coming soon!
