• Whit + Sydni

It’s such a perfect time to be married… for MANY reasons. 1. It’s not 110 degrees, it may be a little chilly at times but I would personally rather be a little chilly than dying in the heat! 2. It’s pretty much in the “Off” season for weddings and that means wedding vendors aren’t exhausted. I know this was true for me. I took a little break in October and hadn’t shot a wedding in over a month and a 1/2! I was ready to get back in the game! Whit and Sydni’s wedding was the perfect one to start back with! They had a BEAUTIFUL ceremony so focused on the Lord and the gift that marriage is. I loved it. Sydni was gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. Her dress fit her like a glove and when she walked, it made her look as if she

was just floating across the floor.  Whit and Sydni’s flower girls rang hand bells as they headed down the long aisle of Huguenot Baptist Church and the large white doors were closed behind them. The bridal march began and the doors were opened. Everyone rose and Whit had his first look at his bride….well, he had to jump up a few steps in order to see her above all of the guests. As they caught eyes, tears and smiles were exchanged. I love weddings. Everyone is happy, joyful and genuinely excited to celebrate alongside of the new couple. It’s a beautiful day.  It was an honor to capture the many precious moments that made Whit and Sydni’s day so perfect.  Besides Sydni tossing her bouquet right into the middle of the chandalier, their day was perfect:).  I loved meeting their sweet college friends and even some faithful blog stalkers! It was an amazing day in the southside of Richmond and here are some favorites!!  Enjoy!

They’re Pro dippers.

So we had to play around with the light because it was a VERY bright November afternoon! But it made for some really different shots…. a challenge is always good every now a then!

Why is this is shot so great? Because Sydni has no idea that she just tossed her bouquet into the center of a chandelier! Love it.

Sydni, girl I would have done the same thing!

A super fun glow-stick exit! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jackson!

    I can honestly say I don’t think I have ever seen such beautiful pictures of a wedding and all the participants, especially the bride and groom when they are together. What a great canvas you had to work with cuz Syd is absolutely stunning but, wow.

    KK, sooooo many wonderful pics; capturing the light of the glow sticks was incredible; you did an amazing job with the afternoon light. I especially like the one of the Brida and Groom as they were walking away from you toward the rolling hills!
