Though this is some very fashionable Nashville wedding photography, the couple gets the credit for the wardrobe. I’m documentary style and not fashionista, but I definitely appreciate all the nice formalwear on display here. I had the pleasure recently of meeting Deandre and Erica to discuss their wedding photography needs. I can empathize that can be an overwhelming process. Each wedding photographer you meet, there has to be something that stands out about the one the couple chooses, over the others….whether a signature style, proven track record and reputation, ideas they bring to the table to help them get the most out of their event and the photographer investment. Or a combination of all those things. Both of them are relatively new-ish to Nashville, their families are respectively 3-5 hours away, both were here for their schooling, and happened to meet where they attend church. And this happened to be the site of their wedding 🙂 The wedding was at Mt. Zion Church in Antioch which I was impressed with upon arrival because of how colorful it is, LOL.
As I spoke with Erica during the planning stages, she really had a grip on the organization and had a coordinator, and time was mapped out pretty well once I gave her reasonable guidelines of time to allow for photography. She wanted family portraits of the couple and their families in the church for the sake of ease and convenience, but also wanted some outdoor variety with the bride and groom, as well as with the bride and groom parties. They were having a private reception at Hotel Preston On Briley Parkway in Nashville, I wouldn’t be shooting there as they wanted to capture the ceremony and some journalistic wedding photography with their parties and them as bride and groom. On the way was Seven Oaks Park in Nashville, off Murfreesboro Rd. so I suggested we stop there after the ceremony and post ceremony portraits, and do some fun and different stuff with them. She loved the idea and how it wouldn’t take them out of the way, or keep them from their guests for too long. We were indeed a great fit, the rest was history. It starts with getting ready and some pre ceremony photos, the bride would not be ready just yet, but her gorgeous gown and hair and makeup were worth waiting for!
I was very impressed by the fashion sense of the groom party here, everyone was very dapper indeed! As you can see below, the bridal party is giving them a pretty even run for their money!
This is the first look we have of the bride in her dress ready for the ceremony, with her mother fixing her veil. What a sweet journalistic wedding photography moment!
Now we board them on the limo (which we also captured) and hit the park, where we can capture the bride and groom and their wedding parties having a fabulous time!
Congratulations Deandre and Erica! My assistant and I have had a great time working with you, thank you for letting us go to work for you and tell the story of your wedding day! Please let me know if you need anything, you all did great and looked fabulous!
