I did a lot of second shooting at the end of last year, and let me just say, I love second shooting! Second shooting takes the pressure away of getting every single moment (which I also love!) but it gives me a chance to step back and try out new ideas and get a little more creative at certain moments! Then I get to take what worked and use it in my own weddings!
Last October we joined the talented Alison Dunn Photography for a wedding at St. Colman’s Church and a beautiful fall reception the Merion Tribute House. After a few weeks of rainy weddings, this wedding had the absolute perfect weather! The last of the trees were changing and the sun was shining :) The little ones ran like crazy in the grass and I’m sure tired themselves out!
Their Merion Tribute House Wedding
There are some weddings where you can just see the entire vision. This was one of them! From the signage that the couple did themselves, Katie’s veil that was 30 feet across, to her flowers, everything came together for one cohesive and beautiful wedding day. I spent the morning with David and his guys, who were so nice, but also quite focused on figuring out how to correctly tie a bow tie. Once we watched a few instructional videos, we completed the look with the perfect boutonniere. Their first look was one of my favorites of the year! Outside of Merion Tribute House, the big bus rolled up with his bride to be as David stood with his back facing it. Katie walked up behind him and he just couldn’t WAIT to turn around! These two were just so excited to see each other and hold each other. It was absolutely beautiful to witness. The rest of their wedding was no disappointment as they tied the knot and had seriously the most beautiful fall wedding day!
