Justin and Loni met while Loni was visiting Nashville, from her native state of Wisconsin, to visit a friend. During the visit, her friend came down with an illness and was unable to go sightseeing around Nashville with Loni. Loni ventured out to tour the city on her own and met Justin, a Texas native, living in Nashville. I suppose it was one of those storybook encounters that would unexpectedly shape the future forever. Fast forward to September 29, 2018, the day of their Timothy Demonbreun House wedding with family and friends in attendance.

Shortly after arriving, I looked through the window and saw the flower girls playing, to pass time I suppose, awaiting the big event. These candid, pure moments are an important part of what makes a cohesive story.

How could I NOT photograph these adorable children?

Loni graced the aisleway and really had guests’ undivided attention. Naturally, these are critical moments that I have to focus on documenting, for important reasons, such as the couple not killing me afterwards, LOL.

One interesting component of documentary wedding photography is watching the guest reactions and other moments of human interaction.

The cigar bar on the outdoor back patio by the pool was an interesting, very photogenic touch. All we needed was Al Pacino and Ray Liotta.
