When this laid back couple told me they were getting married at the stunning Hermitage Rippy Estate, in Mobile Alabama, I knew this was going to be a great day!
Once the Bride and her bridal party were fueled for the day with pizza and donuts we were ready to get the party started!
When shooting in such a historical location it’s hard not to take advantage of its elegant and timeless features. This is why we chose to do the first look on the grand staircase located inside the house.
Their ceremony took place below a grand oak tree in the front acre of the estate. The perfect outdoor setting for this fun, laidback couple.
Whether your wedding is at a traditional venue like the Hermitage Ripply or a downtown hotel, it’s vital that you make your wedding day about you!! And Tori and Tyler did just that! After ‘ICING’ their whole wedding party, the couple well and truly set the tone for the rest of the night!
There was so much love in the room, not just from the newly wedds but their entire wedding party and guests. All night they hyped up the bride and groom, took shots, and kept the vibes high! Dancing the night away, telling inside jokes and genuinely celebrating the bride and groom, exactly how a wedding day should be!
As your photographer it is my job to capture all of these moments, the laughs, the smiles, the dodgy dance moves… the impromptu shot taking. In order to do this, you really have to get to know your couple, what they enjoy, what makes them smile, what elements of their day are the most important to them? I really got to know Tori and Tyler so I knew their wedding would have fun little perks along the way. So knowing them meant I was prepared to capture anything!
When planning your wedding and choosing your photographer, choose someone who truly knows you and gets you! This way you know they will capture everything that’s important to you on the day, so when you get your gallery back, you can relive all those unique candid moments that made the day special.
I see my photography life as a complete life altering decision. I shot my first wedding in Cancun, Mexico and have since shot weddings in four different states. From traveling between the gulf coast all the way back to the midwest, I can't imagine what it would be like to not capture milestones along the way.
