Yesterday afternoon, Emma and I cruised up to Atlanta to photograph Tj and Libby's New Year's Day wedding. I can't think of a more perfect way to start the new year! These two are fun, stylish and personable, and I had a great time celebrating their love along with their family and friends.
The color palette at this wedding was really cool! Tj is seriously stylish, so I knew that their details would be fun and distinct. I love the fact that Tj decided to trade in his tie for a scarf. He looked like a total rockstar!
This wouldn't be one of my wedding posts if I didn't include show pictures! Aren't the black and purple Converses awesome?
Tj & Libby's non-traditional style inspired me to use some different processing techniques on a few of their images. It's definitely a departure from my normal style, but it fits theirs perfectly! Tj used to be a DJ, so he and Libby decided to have their guests sign discs instead of a guest book.
Check out this lovely lady! Lovely AND brave. It was pretty cold outside, but we couldn't resist exploring some of the areas outside the church for her bridal portraits.
When I first met with these two, Tj mentioned that his favorite thing about my work is that I make my brides and grooms look like rockstars. What can I say? I have amazing clients, so making them look amazing isn't too difficult - especially when they have this much attitude!
What kind of friends do rockstar couples have? Why, ROCKSTAR friends, of course! These are some of my favorite bridal party photos ever!
The Abbey at St. Paul's is a really beautiful location. The ceremony and reception both took place in the open area in front of the altar.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Dunn!
These two are so sweet together.
The after party (aka reception) was really rockin', but it began with a few sweet, intimate dances between the bride and groom, the groom and his mom and the bride and her mom.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the next few images. They are so full of emotion.
Later in the evening, Tj and one of his friends performed for the wedding guests. They did a choreographed fight/dance that was really cool!
Tj and Libby, I can't thank you enough for inviting me to be part of your wedding. It was an amazing experience. I wish you lots of joy and adventure in your new life together, and I hope you have a blast in Gatlinburg!
