Every once in a while we shoot a wedding where the chemistry between the two individuals is undeniable. You feel it, they got it...so we shoot it. Don't get me wrong, I see chemistry in every wedding we shoot, but there are a handful of weddings where from the couple, to the lens, through the lens, and to my husband and I as the photographers, we get caught up in it. That kind of obvious affection is inspiring and we can only pray that our shots accurately portray their love. Personally while shooting this wedding I caught myself frozen in a moment numerous times reliving our special day, the day I married the love of my life. In those moments and I had to wake up and remind myself that I needed to keep snapping, but that was just the mood of the day. It wasn't all about the unquestionable chemistry on that day though. These 2 beautiful people are also a ton of fun. They seem to be surrounded by a great group of friends and a loving family. My husband and I have gotten to know them through this whole process and and can tell that they are quality human beings, period; but TOGETHER?....they are perfection. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Les and Katy Smith.
Being from Australia I am not used to having to deal with this bitter cold and Dustin and Jamie’s wedding definitely reinforced this. It was cold!! They were such troopers though. Jamie even walked around without shoes for some of the time! Jess and I had so much fun shooting their Mint Springs Farm wedding. With Jamie being a Bama fan and Dustin being a Vols fan, there was a lot of banter throughout the day which was very funny! We also ran a photobooth which was a real hit! There was one bridesmaid in particular that REALLY enjoyed it and definitely kept Jess entertained!- Greg
