I love these 2. Let me tell you why. When we met, they were both easy going, happy, and really really in love. Louis doesn’t mind having his photo taken and he actually has input–which is refreshing from my side of things. Carley is beautiful, happy, has fantastic taste, and goes with the flow. But that all aside… they are in love. And it makes for fab photos.
The wedding day was fun. I arrived at The Barn at Harvest Moon Pond early to scope things out. Really nice place. FRIENDLY owners, really clean, gorgeous chandeliers, fantastic fireplace, lovely balcony–this place is nice. And though it rained off and on, everything was still gorgeous. As I mentioned, Carley has fantastic taste. The caterers, Coliseum Bar and Kipps Catering, treated us (photographers) really well and the food was out of this world… loved the soul food Louis and Carley! And the appetizers were GORGEOUS too!
Side track. I met some photographers down in Memphis for a workshop. One of those photographers was from Wisconsin–2 hours away from me actually–so weird. I’d not heard of her and when I saw her work… fell in love. So, we chatted for a while after the workshop, went on a vacation together to reunite with our other Memphis-met friends, and started talking 2nd shooting 🙂 I’m happy to call her my friend. She is one talented lady. So, when searching for a 2nd photographer for Louis and Carley–Rebecca Eby was my first choice! She really helped take some pressure off me Saturday and allowed me to focus on shooting creatively and candidly in a way that a primary photographer typically doesn’t get to. Also joining me was Krista Resnick all the way from Rice Lake, MN. Krista and I have been penpals for a while and bounce ideas off one another. She mainly shoots families but wanted a little insight into the wedding perspective. So, she shot some, helped with flash some, kept us running… it was a lot of fun!
Enough typing for one day! I need to hit the hay! I hope you 2 have a FANTASTIC honeymoon. I can’t thank you enough for letting us into your life Saturday. It’s clear you are loved and surrounded by some really wonderful people. I wish you guys NOTHING BUT THE BEST!
