It’s funny, I’ve traveled all over the world, and I’m convinced that there are parts of Alabama that are as beautiful as anywhere on earth – the Dyar’s house on Smith Lake is definitely one of them. I also have a total love affair with being on the water, so taking a boat ride for pictures with an amazing couple is pretty much my idea of heaven.
Everything about their wedding was fantastic; wildflowers, the stars, Seth’s Land-Rovers, the boats, the painter who illustrated their ceremony, the spectacular light reflecting off the house to make perfect ceremony pictures, the fantastic music (killer, killer band and the Lamb family for the ceremony music). It was also one of those days where I felt like a friend as much as a photographer, which is always special!
Casey and Brad met at Alabama, but they did their wedding planning across the country from LA, and I had the honor of being their photographer. All of our shoots – the engagement, bridal, and wedding day were absolutely perfect weather, light, and fun (I miss those days when its 102 degrees outside!!). The ceremony was at Rosewood in Pinson, and everything was delightfully elegant – Casey did a fantastic job planning of the details, and Rosewood did fantastic flowers and hung the rad chandeliers.
One of my favorite moments was during the vows – after a couple of tongue twister lines, Casey turned to the guests and gave a thumbs up – a perfect reaction and moment! I also really appreciate that Casey and Brad let us steal them away for a few pictures under the chandeliers once night came – they are some of my favorite pictures this year!
My good friend Kevin Roberts (aka Kevant) took pictures with me, Coats Cars provided the transportation, and Rosewood did the flowers and orchestrated a wonderful event (they are a fantastic team!!).
