Brittany & Adam: Wedding

Brittany and Adam are awesome. Nuff said… but I will keep going. When I spent time with them while shooting their engagement photos, I knew that they were some of the most genuinely kindhearted people I had ever met. They are the type of people I could spend time with and feel like a better person just by being in their presence. I am so truly honored to have such amazing clients. I really don’t know why they pick me, but I am so glad they do because I adore each and every one of them. The wedding day was perfect and full of love and romance. Everything went incredibly smooth, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day or bride and groom.

Brittany and Adam, thank you SO much for inviting me into your lives, and your love story. I am the lucky one for knowing you both. Your love has not only inspired me but enriched my life. I heart you and wish you both all the happiness in the world because you truly deserve it.

Below are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

Love the dress, LOVE the shoes. I love it when my brides get creative and do something a little out of the ordinary.

Brittany is always smiling, always happy. Love that about her.

They opted to do a “First Look” before their ceremony. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… that is one of the best decisions you could make for your wedding day. It was especially great for Brittany and Adam because their ceremony didn’t start until 7pm and in the winter the sun sets around 5ish so by the time the wedding would have been over, there would have been no more pretty light for great photos.

Not only is a First Look wonderful for getting great photos, but it is such a sweet and intimate moment shared between the couple. It gives you time to talk to each other and reassure each other of the amazing day and commitment ahead of you. It really is a beautiful thing that I always feel so honored to be a part of.

We took advantage of the extra time and walked around downtown to take more pictures.

Doesn’t this look like a fun bridal party? They were truly all that and a bag of chips.

I was loving the black and red themed colors. Deep rich colors always photograph so well. Another great reason for the First Look is that we are able to get all of the bridal party photos taken before the ceremony. We only had to shoot the family photos right after the ceremony and it took less than 15 minutes to do.

I just love this of Adam completely chill while waiting for the limo to pick him and the bridal party up to head to the ceremony.

The ceremony was held at Grace Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I loved how Brittany decorated the church to go along with her theme.

Michael snapped this shot of their first kiss as Mr. and Mrs.

At the reception there was a whole candy bar to match the red theme as well, which I completely adore. I saw this at Rheana and Joseph’s wedding earlier this year and LOVED the idea. I think it’s super cute and fun.

All of her red and black colors went so perfectly with the reception hall (Boudreaux’s) still being decorated for Christmas.
