DIY Wedding Details


You you might get the impression that we aren’t fans of detail photos, especially if you’ve read our recent blog post Spare Me the Details. It’s true, we would rather shoot people than inanimate objects – that comes from years of telling visual stories as photojournalists. But, when it comes to some weddings like the one we shot for Amy and Aaron that included so many unique touches, we can’t help ourselves.

Amy created many of the things you see in the photos from the bouquets and boutonnieres fashioned from french magazine text and pheasant feathers to signage that peppered the reception tent, helping to guide guests through the event. Even Aaron’s Dad got into the act by having an A&A cattle brand made that helped decorate the buffet table. And, Aaron and his groomsmen made sure the wedding vision was carried out without a hitch.

When it comes to your wedding, we’ll be sure to concentrate on telling the story of the day. If part of that story happens to be the amazing details that the bride and groom worked so hard to carry out then we’ll be sure to tell it. Please let us know if you are planning your wedding. We would love to be part of the details of your big day.
