A couple reasons I love being a wedding photographer: I get to take one-of-a-kind images. This wedding doesn't happen again. Larissa won't put her gown on again before her ceremony. She won't see Nick for the first time on their wedding day again. They have one first dance. I am there, honored to catch these moments, allowing them to be remembered forever. And I find great joy in doing so.
I get to draw with light. Most of the time I use natural light, which can be a hide and seek game, but I love the challenge. The perfect light is always able to be found, or made if need be (shout out to flashes).
Now, on to Nick and Larissa. What a way to start out the 2012 wedding season. Larissa is an artist, studying and working at the Savannah School of Art and Design. Her wedding reflects her beauty and creativity to a tee. Her wedding gown is a perfect example. She entered a contest sponsored by Jasmine Bridal and won this dress. It is stunning! Be sure to keep scrolling for all of her amazing reception details, provided by her mom's antique collection.
Enjoy this look back of Larissa and Nick's big day!
