Is it possible to slow down a day? While it felt like Becca & Brandon’s wedding day went by in the blink of an eye, the slow New Orleans pace of life made the day relaxed and smooth.
Arriving as the bride gets ready is one of my favorite parts. Seeing the day from start to finish. Hearing the anticipation in their voice. The questions they ask.
Becca made a most beautiful bride, and Brandon…sweet, Brandon…was the most thoughtful, dapper, loving groom. The couple opted to go with a first look before the ceremony began in her parent’s yard. Beautiful, dapper, handsome–all words I overheard between their first kisses and hugs on their wedding day.
And Bernie, we can’t forget about their boy. A year and a half old Swiss Mountain Dog who is so well behaved and trained. He made it through photos and the ceremony–no problem.
There were so many moments during this wedding where the tears escaped behind the camera. Becca & her Dad walking through the yard where she glowed like an angel. Off roading into the field to see the most magnificent magic hour sunset — I had goosebumps as I composed the frame. And watching Becca and her Dad share the dance floor–the waterworks wouldn’t stop at that point.
From start to finish, the day was full of family, friends, love and so much laughter.
Becca & Brandon, it was an extreme honor to be a part of your day and capture a fraction of the energy and beauty that you share. Wishing you many, many years of wedded bliss and numerous trips to enjoy NOLA.
