Last month, Leah and I had the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Josh and Alex in Morristown, Tennessee. They were married at a local venue, Rich Manor - a colonial-style brick manor on a seven acre patch of farmland.
Most of the wedding was outside, which on a July afternoon, was very beautiful and sunny! The couple had some cool ideas, including a moment when they exchanged letters before the ceremony, separated by a dividing wall. I loved photographing the exchange between them all day, but this moment was especially powerful and our wide-angle lens allowed us to photograph both of them at the same time.
In editing the photos, I wanted to embrace the summer environment and really pull from the blues and greens, which made the grass and sky look amazing, but also the bride's bouquet and the groom's tie. I spent a long time on the black-and-white look, too, which turned out great. We had about 3,000 photos in all to go through and edit, and ended up with about 400 that we were really happy with.
We've started giving the finished photo files to our clients on a custom engraved wooden thumb drive in an engraved box. These boxes look incredible and I am so excited to surprise Josh and Alex with one!
