CREATIVE. That was the word I kept in mind as I photographed James and Charity’s wedding day. As creative people themselves involved with beat boxing and hip-hop group Legacy One, they wanted their wedding photos to be completely unique, something they had never seen before. We went to a variety of locations, took creative risks, played with shadows, laughed a lot and created some of the best memories I have as a photographer. It is so wonderful to have a couple trust you completely… even when you are lying on a cement floor to photograph them or standing on driveways in the middle of a seemingly boring community (*if you see the wildflower pictures below… that’s what I am talking about!) There are amazing shots of their day from the ceremony to the portraits to the guests dancing the night away so make sure you scroll all the way to the end! You can also check out their forest sunset engagement session here!

As you scroll, enjoy one of my favorite songs, “Something In the Water” by Brooke Fraser.

I have never seen a wedding party have so much fun. While we were taking pictures of the bride and groom, the wedding party created a ridiculous music video complete with dancing scenes, team push-ups, and, obviously, sandwich breaks (because the best wedding parties keep the bride and group well fed and hydrated)!
