The guy’s perspective. Why Dusty loves shooting weddings

I (Dusty) absolutley LOVE this job!  First of all working with Leslie is AMAZING.  My parents ran a family business when I was growing up so it’s always been a dream of mine to run my own business one day.  Now it’s a reality and it couldn’t be more perfect working with Leslie.  I’m a big believer in doing work that means something and doing what you love. We plan to instill these principles in Davis so he can grow up and one day do the work he loves.  Relationships have always been very important to me.  I love getting to know our clients.  I love hearing their story and what brought them together.  Building genuine relationships makes our clients feel at ease and gives us a better opportunity to capture natural pictures.  Living these special moments with people is something that never gets old and delivering beautiful images is simply icing on the cake.I love shooting weddings with Leslie.  It’s so fun to hang out with the guys while Leslie is spending time with the girls.  I love getting shots of the groom and his buddies a few hours before the big moment.  I love getting shots like this of the groom before the ceremony. It’s a moment I remember from our wedding- writing Leslie a letter. I try to stay out of the way so the groom can feel comfortable.

I love getting “guy” detail shots that Leslie might not notice.

For some reason, I really like shoes…..I literally have more shoes than Leslie does…..I know it’s weird and I hate to admit it but it’s true…..that being said….I really like getting a shot of the bride and groom’s shoes together.

I love seeing grandparents on the dance floor at a reception.  I love capturing this for the family to enjoy!

In my opinion, the band makes or breaks the reception.  A great band knows how to get the party started.  I love taking shots of the band in action.

We’re just really happy we get to do this for a living and get to be a part of people’s big celebrations!

Happy Friday everyone! I’m excited to finally be able to share pictures from Katie’s bridal portrait now that she is officially Mrs. Lewis! We had such a great time at John & Katie’s wedding and I can’t wait to share pictures from that 🙂 John and I grew up together so it was really fun to watch him on his wedding day and capture all of the excitement. Katie was adorable and so excited to be marrying John. We had a blast at her bridal portraits.

{friday favorite} Danielle & Michael Engagement

Happy Friday everyone! I’m officially back in the swing of things and very busy! I’m truly enjoying getting back to work and can’t wait to share all of the recent sessions we’ve done 🙂

Today I want to share some of my favorites from Danielle & Michael’s Nashville engagement session! This sweet couple was so much fun to work with and so relaxed. They are seriously cute and you can tell how much they love each other. It’s adorable 🙂 We’re really looking forward to their wedding at the end of June at Montaluce Winery & Estates in Dahlonega, GA. I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding at a winery so I was more than excited when Danielle told me they wanted to book us! I seriously can’t wait for their big day. Thank you guys so much for traveling to Nashville for your engagement session! Check out some of my favorites:

Y’all. I didn’t do a thing to Danielle’s eyes. They’re just really that beautiful 🙂

{friday favorite} Meagan & Kevin’s Atlanta Wedding

Happy Friday everyone! Let’s take a break from Baby W posts today shall we? 😉 Although, we are getting SO close! I think this baby will be here soon so we’ll keep everyone updated!

Today, I want to share pictures from Meagan & Kevin’s gorgeous Atlanta wedding!! Dusty and I had such a great time shooting this wedding. We both went to UT with Meagan so it was quite an honor to be her photographers- and so much fun to see all of our friends! Their ceremony was at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church and the unbelievably gorgeous reception was at the Georgian Terrace Hotel. They couldn’t have picked a more amazing location for their reception. This hotel is unreal!

Check out some (a ton) of my favorites from the day!
