Billy and Claire’s wedding ceremony was on the campus of the University of Georgia at the old Chapel. The reception following was held at the gorgeous Visitor’s Center and Conservatory at the State Botanical Garden. It was a mild November day with plenty of bright sunshine. I think Billy and Claire had the largest wedding party I’ve shot thus far with 12 of their closest friends on each side! I could definitely tell that Billy and Claire are blessed with great friendships. now some images….

if you’re thinking of having a huge wedding party like Billy and Claire….I’ve got you covered…

great shot of Billy outside the chapel…

After the ceremony the sun had already set, so I had to get creative with some off-camera lighting. I can’t stress enough how important it is for photographers to know how to use lights. Had I not known how to utilize my flash off the camera I would have been forced to use a boring flat looking light coming from an on-camera flash. For you photographers out there…if you’d like to learn more about off-camera lighting definitely pay a visit to my good friend and colleague Zack Arias.

    WHOA! That is one SERIOUSLY large bridal party. You handled it well, though 😀 I love the shot of the bride laughing. It’s simple and beautiful.

    It was the most beautiful wedding ever. I enjoyed ALL of the photos. Everyone looks like they had a good time. Claire and Billy’s reflections into each others eyes shows the love they have and a lasting one too. I am proud to have them as our friends. The BOOTS under the dress lets me know that her heart is still Texas even though she is in Vegas for now. Enjoy your new life together, everyday is a new day and everyday should be filled with love and respect.
