Erik + Brooke

Maymont Wedding Photographer

As soon as he saw her coming down the aisle… the very long aisle, the tears started flowing.  She had a long aisle to walk which gave Erik more and more time to admire his bride.  The closer she came, the more the tears flowed.  Brooke was stunning. Erik is a funny guy and during their engagement session I experienced that side of him.  However, during their ceremony, I saw the serious side.  You could tell every promise he made to her was from the very depths of his heart.  He adores her.

.

Like I said, Brooke was stunning.  Her dress fit perfectly and complimented her in every way.  She was so calm, yet excited at the same time.  It was as if she had a peace about her day and no stress could get in the way of that.  She was marrying the love of her life and that’s all that mattered.

.

Brooke and Erik were married at Maymont Park in Richmond, VA and their wedding was coordinated by the wonderful ladies at Occasions.  They did a fabulous job and made the wedding day such a breeze.

Enjoy a “few” favorites.  (I think I’ll get better at narrowing down blog posts NEXT wedding season!) haha

So this isn’t the most amazing shot in the world, but It’s awesome because there is a bright red cardinal flying just to the right of them!

One of my 2009 goals is to get better at handling light.  A cloudy day is a piece of cake! It’s a little more difficult when there is awesome evening light to use! I had great practice with this wedding.  The light was SO good.
