Sam & Jayme Dejene

I finally met Jayme about a week before her wedding.  I was so excited because she rocked!!!!  She was so laid back and carefree and totally wanted to have fun with the photographs on the big day.

I arrived at their house and began shooting as Jayme was getting her make-up done.  As usual, I immediately asked where the dress was hanging.  She took me upstairs to Sam’s music room.  She seemed concerned with the location, but I thought it was great!!!  I wanted to incorporate something in with the dress so I grabbed the music stand and placed a book on it.  I thought the images turned out great and it was something different to use with the dress.  Afterwards, I took some of her accessories outside on her front stoop to play with the paint cracking.  I love adding in textures to whatever items I am shooting.  I’m a big fan of incorporating your environment into the shoot… whatever it may be.

After Jayme got dressed we headed out front for some solo shots.  There was one tree where the leaves were turning.  Unfortunately, most of the leaves had fallen off.  That’s the one tricky thing about fall.  The trees are not on the same schedule at all.

The ceremony was held in Oakmont and the service was beautiful.  I was able to get a great shot of the couple being announced out of the church with some edible rice thrown at them.  Once they were able to shake off we all started off towards the reception at The Magnolia Room.  Because I hadn’t had much time with the guys yet, I took them out back to an old cement bridge.  They were definitely in good spirits and I had a great time shooting with them.  They were crazy!!!  Ha Ha =)

I had a brilliant day of shooting and I am very thankful that Sam and Jayme chose me to capture their wedding day.
