A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte | Wedding Photography

When I received an email from Brionne a month before her wedding with a few things she’d like make sure we photographed (the porch swing, trinkets on her bouquet, etc), there happened to be one request that jumped out at me. She said, “I really really really love the spin on Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. If there was any way we could do something similar, it would make my life.” I responded with, “it would make mine too.” Of course, we were being slightly hyperbolic, but still…it would rock.

So when a bride tells me something would “make her life”…you are pretty much guaranteed I will do anything I can to make it happen. And although I forgot the parasols at home, and it had poured just an hour before…we still made it happen. Thanks to a stashed umbrella in the car & the most amazing wedding party that didn’t mind sitting/laying on the ground. For that, I am grateful…and I am sure Brionne is as well.

Here’s my rendition to make it appear similar to pointillism…I am no Georges Seurat, but I think it will mean a bit more to Brionne than his version anyway.

Audrey & Muncie – The Wedding! | Louisville Kentucky Wedding Photography

I was so anxious all year for August 14, 2010. Actually, I had been anxious for that day since November 2009. In November, Justin & I had the pleasure of flying over to one of our favorite cities in the nation to photograph the engagement of some of the sweetest people we have every met. Even better, we now call them friends. Audrey & Muncie brought us to Washington DC to document that time in their life…engaged, attending law school, living in DC…it was wonderful!

The day was nothing short of amazing. Audrey & Muncie were the epitome of style and class. There is nothing like spending a wedding day with a couple you adore and their families that you want to join. Once again, we left feeling as if we made so many new friends…a sure sign of a fantastic day.

…oh, and the details you ask? The details were out of this world. As a photographer (and once a bride), I can’t and never will be able to say enough about wedding planners.  Mackenzie Spalding of One Fine Day is the bee’s knees. She pulls together the most fabulous events I’ve ever seen…and I’ve seen a lot of them. Everything about the day was impeccable and I am honored that I was chosen to document it all…here’s a look into August 14, through my camera of course.

Audrey & Muncie decided to do the first look, which was great for many reasons. Their wedding day happened to be warm. Really, really warm.  So warm that we did 90% of all photos inside.  If they hadn’t decided to see each other before the ceremony, we wouldn’t have had nearly enough time/light for photos. Audrey & Muncie, thanks for valuing photographs & the time it takes to create them the way you do :)

There is something about the photo on the left that I LOVE…not sure why, just do.

Jumped outside for just a few…

I love this photograph of Audrey’s parents walking her down the isle…

Coming back down the isle is *always* one of my favorite photographs of the day.

The reception was so beautiful…amazing details everywhere you looked!

A favorite:

Loved this part! It was this little girls birthday, so they celebrated with a cake…so cute!

Not a bad late evening treat, if I do say so myself.

Ahh! I LOVE this one…

A perfect, perfect day!!!

Kelsey & Mike – The Wedding! | Ohio Wedding Photography

Of all the Saturdays in a year, you might be surprised how many have perfect wedding day weather.  Wedding photographers know.  Being prepared is a must…but it’s really not that often that the day isn’t perfect in all aspects (when you are around that many people gathered together in the name of love…it’s hard to not have a wonderful day).  While this particular day in September wasn’t the most dry, it was definitely a perfect wedding day.  To be completely honest, it really was the perfect rainy day wedding…and it didn’t even matter that the ceremony was outdoors.

Kelsey came to my house early this year and we talked all about her perfect September wedding.  I was excited from the moment she said ‘sunflowers’.  I love sunflowers.  She planned the day down to the very smallest detail.  From the sunflowers planted in various photo locations, to perfectly color-coordinated Chinese lanterns hanging above the dance floor, to a candy bar with popcorn (that was a highlight for me…I *love* popcorn).  The only thing that may not have been picture perfect may have been the rain.  When I say rain, I mean downpour.  However, it couldn’t have come at a better time because of the love it brought out of the day.

We had nice dry weather for the private moment (love those) and all of their photos together…which I am still very thankful for.  Just when we were ready for photos with the bridal party & family…the rain came.  It let up for a bit, enough time to get photos outside & on porches, but when it was time for the ceremony to start, the rain just fell, and it fell hard. Kelsey had planned this day for so long; she wanted to get married outside…and by golly she was going to.  I admire her for that.  I think her guests did too.  Everyone climbed the hill in the rain and circled around the chairs (which had puddles at this point) to watch this beautiful couple get married. It was amazing to see everyone gathering together despite the weather to witness one of the most important moments in their lives.  The rain kept falling, that is until Kelsey arrived in her horse drawn carriage…then suddenly it stopped.  It was stunning, emotional & beautiful.  I’ll let the pictures tell the rest.

Loved the private moment spot! The umbrella wasn’t planned until it was raining, but I think it is perfect!

Did I mention this wedding was full of surprises?  Well, when your best friends in college are dance majors…you know something is gonna happen ;)

After many of the guests left, the party turned into a cake throwing contests.  It was pretty entertaining.

These lanterns are amazing! I’ve seen them in photos, but never in person.  They are completely environmentally friendly because they just burn up in the air.  They are so beautiful as they float away..I want to get some so badly!
