I am LONG overdue for some blog posting, so over the next few weeks I’ll be playing some major catch-up now that things are “slowing down” a bit! (Does that ever really happen? I hear people talking about this thing called “slowing down” but I’m not sure if it’s really a thing… hmm. 😉 )
One of the things I love about second shooting is the unexpected tidbits that you stumble upon throughout the day as the extra eyes. It’s a little more laid back than when you’re the lead photographer, and for me that gives me the extra second to breathe and really push myself creatively. Plus, I love getting to catch up with my other photog pals on the job – always a perk! I worked this wedding over the summer with the one and only Jess Fouts, and it was SUCH a blast! This was the first time I’ve worked at Summerour Studio too, and now that I’ve experienced it firsthand I’m dying to go back! It seemed like there was some kind of gorgeousness waiting for us in every single nook and cranny… I couldn’t get enough.
Christine+TJ were pretty precious themselves! They had such a fun crew celebrating the day with them, from beginning to end. Their fun + poppy wedding colors fit their personalities so well, and were woven into so many details from the flowers to the table settings to the bridesmaids. They did a first sight before their ceremony, which was SO sweet – you can just see how much TJ adores her in every single photo! The ceremony was so refreshing, and such a great reminder of all of the loving support that comes not just on your wedding day but for all of the years following from the loved ones you surround yourself with. So good to remember in the beginning, middle, and end! Then everyone broke it down on the dancefloor and celebrated the night away with the Stephen Lee Band… which seriously might be one of my new favorite wedding bands!! They were doing all the things and everyone was feeling all the feelings. #weddingbandwinning
They ended the night with a whooooole lot of pom-poms. Because nothing says wedding magic like a POM explosion to see you out! Congratulations you two – so happy for you guys! Cheers to years and years of married bliss!
Until next time…
