Wedding Day Tip: Family Formal Photo List

The ceremony is beautiful, the couple is happy, and everyone is ready to party. You mosey on over to the cocktail hour where you wait, and wait, and wait, seemingly F O R E V E R  for the couple to arrive. We’ve all been there. Whether as a guest or maybe even a part of the wedding party and who usually gets the blame for taking so long? The photographer.

Rainy Red Gate Farms Wedding

Rain was pouring down outside the barn. The Elvis classic Can't Help Falling in Love was playing in the background as the team made the adjustment to have the ceremony inside the barn. Bright sunshiny wedding days. It’s what we all dream of.  No one wants to think about rain on their wedding day, but there are times when Mother Nature has other plans. 

As the rain came down outside Catherine and David were joined by their children at the altar. Tears flowed and laughter filled the air as they said their “I dos”. While the day may not have turned out the way they had envisioned, Catherine and David had a day full of love and joy!

Congratulations to Catherine and David! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day.

Change usually happens slowly over time, but just like those early days of sobriety, the year 2020 forced heaps of change all at once.

One of the biggest changes for me was a return to photojournalism. As the world shut down and weddings were being postponed, I began to miss the connection and joy I get from photography. So, I reached out to the Savannah Morning News and started freelancing.
