Jeff + Jennifer | Wedding | LaGrange, GA Photographer

Wow, two weddings on the blog in a week? Go me!

Back in April, I was absolutely honored to second shoot a wedding alongside a good friend of mine, Lauren of I Love You Much Photography (or Mrs. Scissors for you Weddingbee peeps).

Anyhoo, we arrived at the wedding location which was a little chapel built in the middle of a beautiful wooded area. But the kicker? It was built as a sanctuary for the neighborhood using the timber that had to be cleared for the roads. How awesome is that?! Moreover, how gorgeous is it?!

And just as beautiful was Jennifer and Jeff’s new home. That tub? Divine. Chandeliers and heated floors? Yes please! At times I had to remember I was there as a wedding photographer, not a realty photography (is there such a thing?).

I decided to do the getting ready shots in black and white. Sometimes it helps tell the story better than words. After all, that’s what photos are for, right? 😉

Ah, window light. Yummy, gorgeous, amazing window light, how I love thee.

Being the second photographer forces you to look for new angles and perspectives. While Lauren photographed Jennifer on the stairs, I caught the reaction of her family seeing her for the first time.

Both Lauren and I always ask our couples whether there are restrictions on photography during ceremonies by the venue/officiant weeks before the event to prepare. Although Lauren had the full-on go ahead before the big day, just moments before Jennifer walked down the aisle we were told we couldn’t photograph anything from the moment the ceremony began until the kiss! But we rocked it out anyways if I do say so myself!

Since Jennifer and Jeff opted not to do a first look, we squeezed in a formals immediately following the ceremony. It gave them the chance at some very hard to find alone time on their wedding day.

I had to share this adorable moment with you. These little ladies had to use the chapel restroom and when they came out, they gazed at Jennifer like she was a princess. Because really, on your wedding day, you ARE a princess (no tiara required).

As Lauren finished up formals, I headed over to the reception area in a nearby field to capture the cocktail hour, some wedding details, and mingling guests.

Guests wrote well wishes to the bride and groom in lieu of a guestbook.

As cute as the little girls are, my heart just about exploded when I saw this furry guest. The bow tie? Adorable OVERLOAD.

As the night winded down, I caught a true newlywed moment.

Big congrats to Jennifer and Jeff! And I’m so excited to be working with Lauren again next month. Be sure to check out her work in the meantime (especially you, ATL). It’s full of fabulousity!
