I met Arianna & Cameron through their engagement session with me. A photographers dream is when they love your work so much they would love for you to be apart of the full journey! They are a young love throughout high school but old souls and just timeless love. They had an afternoon ceremony and only needed 6 hours of photography coverage from getting ready all the way to the grand exit. The bride and her bridesmaids arrived first at noon to finish the touches of getting ready at the venue. Groom & groomsmen arrived shortly afterwards to help with some decorating before getting into their wedding attire.
Arianna and Cameron didn't want to see each other before the ceremony so we did a first touch and prayer instead. Afterwards, the bride did a first look with her father before he walked her down the aisle.
The guest were seated, the first touch and look just happened and now its time to line up and do the thing! Personally, I was smiling from ear to ear with the groom started to walk down the aisle when the Star Wars theme song came on. The personality kept on coming with the flower man and his fanny pack throwing peddles down as he danced down the aisle. I highly suggest to all my clients to add some pizazz to the ceremony that makes it them and the camera loves it!
I love seeing and capturing the little details they have added into their ceremony with a picture of loved ones that have passed on. As well as capturing the candid's of the guests as the ceremony unfolds.
is when the guests get too pre game a little before the reception starts with drinks and appetizers during cocktail hour. First, we take care of family photos after the ceremony and get all the formals done so they can go enjoy cocktail hour as well. Bridal party & newly wed photos followed afterwards before the grand entrance.
The speeches are one of my favorite parts at a reception as I get to hear more stories about the couple I have been adoring. The father of the groom did a little rap since the groom is always on stage rapping at venues. I love personality that they kept adding into their wedding day. Another, first that I saw was playing "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor" at the reception and running around for a very very mild mosh pit. I was dying of happiness-seriously! The bride of the groom and groom were running around bumping into each other and getting the crowd riled up. Before, the night was over the guests lined up for their final grand exit and the newly weds took their last dance in the empty venue. Arianna, changed into her reception dress for a different look and they shared a special moment and soaked in the moment of their wedding day was a success! Their grand exit was another new venture for me for having silly string popped at them.
I hope you all enjoyed a little sneak peak into their gallery! I am going to be writing more blogs so we will be seeing new and old projects since I slacked so much at blogging last year. Thank you for being here and supporting me! Look out for more related posts and tips and tricks!
