I didn’t get the pleasure of shooting Jeff and Lauren’s engagement photos and normally that makes me a little nervous. It can be a little overwhelming for the couple’s first time in front of the camera to be on their wedding day! However, having a couple as good looking and easy going as Jeff and Lauren….there were no worries. Not only were they unbelievably photogenic, they had the best attitudes about the rain and I firmly believe they have gorgeous portraits because of it! They are an incredible couple and their love for each other radiates through all of their interactions. If you take a peek at Part I, you will see an image of Jeff glancing over at his bride during the ceremony. That picture pretty much sums up their relationship. They are best friends, soul mates and now husband and wife! Congratulations you two and I can’t tell you how privileged I was to be a part of your day! Thank you and have a blast in Italy!
Also, a very special thanks to Jessie Smith who was my life saver the whole day! She was MY second shooter! Mine! Crazy. For those of you who don’t know, my very first wedding photography experience was all because of Jessie. She got me started into this crazy industry and I couldn’t thank her more for pushing me to “just give it a try”! I am definitely still “trying” phase. I learn so much every time I shoot! I love trying new things and keeping it fresh. The most valuable nugget of knowledge I took away from Lauren and Jeff’s wedding is how awesome it is to have a someone snapping along side of you! There were many moments during the day when I wondered, “how do I do this by myself!?”. Jessie was such a godsend during this wedding because it literally poured on and off and she makes a great umbrella holder! She also had some awesome shots! PLEASE – Check them here!
Love the lines!
Hello! Look at those colors?!
Canvas?! I can see it now! …. a 20×30 over the fireplace? I think so! Beautiful.
Jeff is a DJ and so the reception was top notch. The lighting was just amazing!
Details were amazing! Notice the tea-lite twinkle on the tables.. it totally changes the whole look!
I might just have a new favorite cake picture!
Reception was held at the University of Mary Washington’s Jepson Alumni Center
