The Purple Iris at Hartwood Mansion | Martinsburg, WV
The time allotted for photos at a wedding is a photographer’s biggest stress of the day. If the bride and groom do not wish to do a first look, the majority of the time everything is crammed between the ceremony and the reception. So when Katie emailed me and said that they will not be doing a first look but would have almost 2 hours to work with before the reception, I started dancing (or moonwalking, most likely!) I took full advantage of the extra time I had on their wedding day which clearly shows through their photos. We had time to do traditional as well as spontaneous and fun. Thomas and Katie are all about fun and happiness and being silly, which made my job extremely easy in the love and laughter that they share together as a couple shines through their photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better day or a greater wedding party to work with! They were all for any idea that I came up with just like Katie and Thomas.
One of the best cookie tables we have ever seen!
