First off, I just have to say that I love my wedding couples. Being a wedding photographer is one of the greatest jobs in the world anyway, but having fabulous couples just make it all the better. Erin & Brian were married on August 8, 2009 at St. Matthews Catholic Church in Champaign. The reception was held at the always fabulous Hilton Garden Inn. The staff there does a great job with every event I've seen there so far. Can't wait to participate in wedding expos there this fall!
Warning: This post is NOT going to be chronological. Brian and Erin just looked so darling walking into their reception: As I've said before, I am LOVING the father-daughter dances this year. But I think it's due to my whole new take on reception lighting. This one is definitely one of my favorites: This is Erin and Brian rocking out to Jump on It by the Sugar Hill Gang: This is their actual first dance, which was beautifully choreographed: Now, back to semi-chronological order: I had a great spot for the ceremony, and the priest didn't want us to move around much, so I stayed up front in a pew and my assistant for the day, Sarah, stayed in the back: Ready to go in the Rolls Royce that sadly broke down about 2 blocks from the church. :( FAVORITE We went to the Arboretum for the family and wedding party shots:
I'm still in NOLA, and learning a bunch from fellow wedding photographers. I still have two more wedding this month, so keep an eye on the blog for more photo goodness!
