As I mentioned in my last post, Shelby & Tim had an incredibly large wedding party, but to their credit (they must love Shelby & Tim a lot) they were surprisingly easy to direct for pictures. I think it also may have had something to do with me mentioning that the quicker we got through with pictures the faster they could get back on the air conditioned party bus. :) I don’t do jumping shots too often, but at Tim’s request we got the whole groom’s side of the wedding party mid-air (and as one of his groomsmen said, that is hard to do with just 5 people, let alone 12!). A few of them got some serious air time! I had a lot of fun with this whole group- there were a lot of characters and they had me cracking up at times! As always my time working with just the couple was one of my favorite parts of the day- they are so naturally cute together! We hit a few spots around Forest Park before heading downtown and getting some more urban pictures near the beautiful reception site, Lumen Private Events. I loved the personal decorations that Shelby and Tim chose for their reception, including a wall of their pictures, momentos, and a cute family tree, and beautiful birch candles made by Shelby’s grandfather from a repurposed tree that died in the yard of Shelby and Tim’s new home. The reception was gorgeous and turned into a pretty great party with the dance floor staying crowded for most of the night! I loved being a part of this couple’s special day. Congratulations to the newlyweds!!!
