Selecting a handful of pictures was so difficult from the wedding last weekend, I decided to go ahead and split it up into two posts. If you missed Part 1 be sure to check it out.

Jessica and Tim – Part 1

I feel like I must start at the very beginning to let you know how much I loved photographing this wedding. Jessica contacted me several months ago, and from the first few moments that I talked to her I felt like I was talking to a long lost friend. We loved the same things, and chatted like we had known each other for years. I was so excited this past weekend that her and Tim’s wedding was finally here.

Jessica and Tim met in a Sunday School class at their church, but it was a class work project that started their romance. They have had a whirlwind romance, and you can just see that they are meant for each other when you spend just a few moments around them.

Their wedding day was perfect, they were surrounded by their amazing families whom Jeremy and I came to love as we spent this gorgeous day with them. I decided to split the wedding into two posts so you will have to stay tuned tomorrow to see more of their gorgeous wedding.

Jessica and Tim, Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding, it was truly an honor to capture the love that the two of you share. I am so excited to see what the future holds for the two of you!

undefinedIt was clear while Jessica was getting ready that she has a bit of an obsession with Coke Zero!undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedJessica and Tim opted to see each other before the ceremony for a  First Look. I love when clients do this, it gives plenty of time for pictures and is one of the most special moments of the day. Tim gave Jessica a new Bible with her brand new name and she was so thrilled.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Tammy

Simply said, you are doing exactly what God intended you to do. You have such a good eye. Loved every one. The veil in the trees, WOW!

Beautiful pictures so those of us who couldn’t be there are able to picture the day… Beautiful bride! :)

What’s in my bag? 70-200mm 2.8

Continuing my mini-series on what equipment I use and carry in my bag, I introduce my mega lens. I’m pretty sure I have a sore muscle in my upper arm from using this lens at this past weekend’s wedding, it’s so heavy. But it’s worth its weight in gold. Ceremony shots were next impossible before I started using this lens.

What is amazing about this lens is that you can zoom and still have a fixed aperature at 2.8! My primary lens that I use about 90% of the time is my 50mm 1.4. And although I love this prime lens because of the wide open aperature, a 50mm just isn’t practical for a wedding ceremony. Introducing Canon’s 70-200mm 2.8L IS USM…

 

This past weekends ceremony was at Olive Baptist Church, which seats over 3,000 people, and having a good zoom lens was imperative. Here are two shots I took without moving where I stood, but simply zoomed in with this lens. I’ve included the meta data on the photos so you can see that while shooting in manual mode, I changed nothing between the two pictures.

This first picture is zoomed at 70mm

This picture is zoomed at 200mm

Another amazing thing you forgot to mention about this lens is that you can ALSO use it as a self-defense mechanism! That thing’s a beast :-)

I need one!

If you get a chance to leave a comment for the girl I interviewed today I would be grateful : ) Thanks.

Can’t wait till I can get this lens!! It’s amazing!

Sneak Peek: Jessica and Tim

Where do I start? This weekend was so much fun photographing this gorgeous couple at one of the most beautiful weddings ever. I’m so glad that Jessica and Tim opted for the First Look, which allowed us to get ALL of the “formal pictures” done before the ceremony.

Jessica, you are gorgeous and I’m so honored to have been a part of your special day.

Here’s a quick sneak peek from their First Look:

I cannot tell you how wonderful we thought you and your husband were. You took such great photos, and were so happy and easy to work with. I cannot wait to see all of your work. Thank for the sneek peak of the two photos of Tim and Jessica. I would be a reference for you a million times over if you ever need me!

Sorry for the double post, but it told me the first comment errored out….delete one of them, or use them to remind everyone how great your work is!

Gorgeous work, Kristin! Can’t wait to see more. The bride looks fabulous (and her hubby too)!

A day with a friend in Mobile, AL

 Several months ago a friend of mine asked if we could spend the day together, take pictures, have lunch, and talk.  How could I resist?

As we started taking pictures we saw a police car and officer approaching. So what did we do? “Jeremy, go talk to him.” Husband to the rescue! After a quick conversation we had to leave our gorgeous location, because well, we weren’t supposed to be there. It was an abandoned building that was ruined during hurricane Ivan several years ago and has been for sale ever since.  It was so sad because the lighting was gorgeous, but we headed to downtown Mobile, AL to finish.

Meet Kathleen

This was the picture I was taking when the cop came…

This was my favorite spot! This is totally posing next to an antique generator behind the bus station!

Kathleen and her husband Joe are such wonderful people and friends. Thanks for giving Jeremy and me an excuse to get away from Pensacola for a day.
