I think most brides and grooms feel they have to hit a bunch of different locations to make their day great. There’s this overarching feeling that the day’s not a success (photographically) unless we’re in a ton of different geographical points. Not true. Not true at all.
We spent all day at The Westin downtown and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Honestly, Daven has one of the most genuine smiles I’ve ever seen. Sometimes, I’m charged with loosening people up, making them laugh and creating comfort. It’s better for photos. I didn’t have to do that with him around. Made my job easier, bro. ‘Preciate you.
^^Favorite of the day, by far.
Still courtesy of the Westin. Between the lobby and room decor, I will never run out of ideas around here.
^^Favorite wedding dress of the year. Shout out to Matina’s Bridal!
I love this portrait of Naeemah. The sun is backlighting her, but also bouncing off of the mirror she’s looking into. It provided this soft quality of light that I can’t always produce. This candid is was captured pre-make-up, if you can even believe it 😀
Deeming this “The Naeemah Smile”. Half “I’ll go ahead and humor you”, half “Are you really taking my picture right now?” Love her.
You need to cut it……
This dude. Seriously. The man’s style is impeccable.
Their wedding at the Westin was so wonderful – thankful for all the leadership and coordination from Alexis at Shayla Hawkins Events!
The ladies are beautiful, and accented by Neil Leeson’s incredible floral and event design.
I can’t even handle this dress, I mean it. Not everyone can pull this dress off, but Naeemah possesses the chic to rock it in style. Love this image.
Made to be models.
Made to celebrate.
Made for smoke machines.
Dat smile, doe, x 2.
Not only is that smile beaming, but note how her hubby is cooling her via pocket-fan. Yaaassssssss
These are sorority sisters. They did a pretty-much choreographed dance full of inside jokes, or so it seemed. Lots of hip-moving, lots of arm-rotation, lots of stuff I can’t do.
Haha! This perfectly encapsulates the evening. Not only could this cat dance, but the attitude exuded can’t even be matched.
Thanks, Naeemah and Daven, for welcoming me into the fold. I loved capturing the day for you. I learned so many dance moves, I can’t even….
