We had the pleasure of documenting the marriage of Jonathan and Louise last month, and couldn’t be more happy with the way everything turned out! The day itself was beautiful. Wonderful weather, beautiful couple, fantastic details. The girls got ready at the Club, a gorgeous venue overlooking the Birmingham cityscape. Jonathan and Louise first saw each other on the balcony, and the view was truly incredible – although Jonathan and Louise only seemed to see each other.
The wedding details seemed to match the couple as well. Classic, elegant, but with eye-catching accents. Louise’s shoes were the perfect shade of Fuschia, and she chose this same shade to accent the bouquets, centerpieces, placecards, and even the bridesmaids gifts (umbrellas!).
In the process of all of our travels, weddings and re-doing of branding and site I’ve failed to post a few things that I want to share. I’m going to take the rest of this week to try and highlight a few of those things. Number one is the wedding album design for Phil and Kim’s wedding that we shot in Atlanta earlier this year. Their wedding was so much fun and so beautiful and I was really excited to see the album come together to really show the story of the day. To view the album in it’s entirety click HERE.
A couple of weeks ago I had the fantastic opportunity to shoot a wedding exclusively with my 4×5 camera on film and polaroid! A friend of mine was photographing a wedding and asked if I’d like to come shoot the bride and groom portraits on 4×5 before the ceremony. I LOVE shooting 4×5 and I LOVE the bride and groom portrait part of a wedding day so it was the perfect combination. Here are a few of the shots from the day that I really liked:

And the film:
Just got the film back from Jonathan and Louise’s wedding and it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to get this stuff edited and up on the site! Here’s a quick sneak peek of some film shots that I loved:
With the new years approaching rapidly I’ve been thinking about a lot of changes here in the studio. Some of them surface level ones that you’ll see and recognize right away and some of them more “behind-the-scenes” type changes. One of the changes that I’ve been contemplating is the re-combining of my two blogs (the chronicles and this blog) into one “all-encompassing” blog of my work and life as a photographer.
One reason that I’ve been thinking about this is that I’d like to be able to blog in one place and not have to attempt to blog in two, another being that I would have a more complete and consistent blog if I could do it all in one place.
But before I can make the move to change the blogs I wanted to ask you how you felt about that. I don’t want to make things easier for me at the expense of your blog reading experience. Would it bother you or affect your decision to read my blog if it were not only wedding and family stuff, but my personal work and travels as well?
I would love to hear your feedback to help me make my choice so that me and my fantastic designer can begin to move forward with some of the new things that we’re thinking about.
And since this is a photo blog I’ll leave you with a photo-booth shoot of Jessi and myself at Jonathan and Louise’s wedding reception 2 weekends ago:
