As the sun sank fast over the Atlanta skyline, the guests make their way into the glamourous reception. Tables set with intimate arrangements setting the mood of the bride and groom and colors that reflected the personalities and excitement of the day. The day began to unfold as both the bride and groom readied themselves for a beautiful outdoor setting for their ceremony. The groom awaited at the alter and the bride transcended an outdoor staircase to leave the crowd speechless with her beauty. The following images show the story that unveiled.
The smell of a cool fall day. Brisk clouds dancing upon blue skies set the rhythm for the sweet ceremony that will take place at the alter later that afternoon. The bride sits in her bride room as the final touches of make up are applied and the groom basks in the light in the window of his preparation room. He fastens his cufflinks and tightens his tie. His grooms men gather around as the day unfolds into love story no one will shortly forget…and the following images tell the story of the Pence wedding.
Working with seniors is always a lot of fun. Generally we start with something for mom, get some really awesome images that can go nicely in a yearbook and on the dining room wall. After that, we shoot some stuff for the senior and make some really great images that would look really cool on a poster or in a dorm room. Finally we get the change to change locations, wardrobes and create some timeless images that you would expect to find in a magazine spread or advertisement. All of those opportunities on one shoot is the reason I love to work with seniors. Take a look at the following images to get a an idea of the images that come out of working with me for seniors.
This session was especially fun with Courtney. With her wedding approaching, we set out on this bridal session to create some amazing images that she wanted to have showcased at her reception for her guests to enjoy. I chose a location based primarily on somewhere that if it was too awful hot outside, we could go into some shade in the trees and still get some amazing images. I knew we would get some great stuff, but never imagined she would feel so comfortable to model with the bright sun and the heat of the day. Check out a sample of this shoot below and be sure to comment and let us know what you think! derek|shane
