I was so happy when Shannon called me and told me her wedding was going to be in Los Angeles. She had hired me to shoot their engagement photos, but the wedding was all set for Georgia at the time.
Shannon and Devin are a super sweet couple. She was very pleased with their engagement shots and hired me to shoot their wedding. I met with the bride and groom several times to discuss their photos, the wedding layout and to get a feel for their wedding.
Shannon started a Pinterest board, which always makes me happy because it adds an extra level of creativity to the looks of a shoot.
On the day of the wedding, I arrived to photograph the bride getting ready. I was happily met by a fun three-year-old and the women of Shannon's family. There were so many moments between the bride, her sisters, and best friend. I shot as her mom zipped up her dress and the final touches were completed. I next met up with the bride and her family at the church where I spotted the bride behind the curtain, she was a cute ball of excitement.
The groom was laughing with his mom when I walked in to see how he was doing. His father and best man were also there, just enjoying themselves. Shannon was getting married into a great family.
The ceremony started with the groom and his mother walking down the aisle, followed by the wedding party (and that same fun three-year-old flower girl). Then, Shannon's father walked her down the aisle. I always love and admire this moment. And soon after, Devin and Shannon were married!
Next came the family photos, we had the perfect spot nearby, which was all green and blue and totally matched the colors of the bridesmaids' bouquets.
During one of the bride's family photos the sister tells her daughter, if you smile, you get more cake… and more cake she got!
We went back to a good meal, lots of clinking glasses, and a very happy daughter drinking apple cider and eating cake.
The cake was made by the bakery at Alcove and after the groom placed it in the bride's mouth she said, "That’s delicious!" Followed by, "Get your own piece" to her husband.
The couple had their first dance, and then the floor opened up and everyone joined in.
The clients wanted to go to Griffith Park. After the festivities ended, we went there, pulled out the Pinterest board Shannon and I had worked in the previous weeks and had even more fun!
Thank you for taking the time to look over these shots. I love that I got to be a part of Shannon's wedding and am very happy for this couple. They love each with all their hearts, and it shows.
Until next time,
