…Collins Wedding…

Here is a first for the blog… a wedding! This wonderful lady worked with my wife and after seeing the prom pictures she asked if I would be interested in shooting their wedding. I couldn’t say no and I am so glad I got to be their photographer! All I had ever heard other photographers say is that weddings are one of the hardest gigs. There is so much stress over getting everything just right, but no one says how much fun they can be. The wedding was held on Vanderbilt’s campus in Benton Chapel. It was a unique place with great character that really fit this couple well! I had such a great time with this amazing couple and I hope they are just as pleased as I am with their pictures.

 I am so glad that I took this assignment and I need to throw out a big thanks to my wife, Alie, who assisted me on this big day. No one could have asked for a better assistant and she stuck with me from start to finish!

Congratulations to the newlyweds and thank you again for giving me this opportunity! Just a word of caution, there are a lot of pictures posted, but out of the entire collection this is just a drop in the bucket!














Last, but not least a special request from the bride and groom. They wanted a group picture of everyone who came to their wedding and this is what we were able to do:
