I started out shooting weddings as everyone should; as an assistant and then moved up to second shooter (an additional photographer at the wedding to help cover the couple getting ready, details and a different angle than the lead photographer). I always enjoyed second shooting, but I rarely do that now because of my own schedule. But, if a friend photographer or someone I really admire (in this case both) asks me to shoot with them, I still like to do it if I am available.
I went with Cindy of Visions of White to go shoot Cedric & Alicia’s engagement session a while back and we had so much fun with them. They are a GORGEOUS and classy couple. Cindy contacted me and asked if I would like to go shoot their wedding with her and I jumped on it. I love working with Cindy because she completely trusts me on handling parts of the event and I knew it would be a classy and it sure was 🙂
As usual, I am starting this post with the couple pictures because as you know if you follow me, these few minutes I get to spend with the couple are my favorite part of the whole day!
Now, I will start back with the beginning of the day with the stunning Alicia getting ready. I love everything about this image.
Then, the beautiful sunset ceremony…
Cedric looking handsome and pretty excited waiting to see his bride.
Now, we go to the beautiful reception area. I told ya it would be classy! Some favorite details 🙂
And you know how I love ring shots, and Cindy loves that I have a macro lens 🙂
And on top of a pineapple! I love the texture.
This little guy LOVED the camera. He was coming over to me all night 🙂
I wasn’t surprised to see that Cedric and Alica had moves on the dance floor…
They had a band AND a DJ that switched off during different parts of the night.
The toast was more of a roast by their Maid of Honors and Best Men.
Cedric dancing with his mom.
Alicia with her (proud) daddy.
Love this of Cedric & Alicia…
Cedric really enjoyed going after the garter!
Cindy let me leave pretty quickly after the garter toss, so I headed on out to go put my feet up before heading out the next morning to shoot a portrait session. Congratulations Cedric & Alicia! And Cindy, thank you again for letting me come play with you!
