Recently, I had the pleasure of documenting Ralynn & Andy’s wedding day.

First, let me start off by saying that I’ve had so much fun with these guys over the last year. We shot their engagement photos with their adorable puppies, had a GORGEOUS bridal session, took a few formal photos for Andy, and capped it all off with a perfect wedding day.

The day before their wedding, I attended their rehearsal dinner to meet the sweet people at their church. It was then that I was told that NO photos would be allowed during the actual ceremony. This blew my creative mind as a photographer! The church was SO beautiful, intimate, and perfectly lit. I was SO sad. However, as a church-going woman, I knew that I had to respect their rules and I understood that the rules were made to protect the sanctity of the ceremony. I worked with what I was given and we managed to snag a few photos before the ceremony and a few after to still capture the beauty and ambiance of the day. Plus, this does make it a little more special for all of those that did attend and were able to see the love present during it all. 

As for the reception, it was a total party- which is my favorite! Ralynn and Andy- who met at LSU – had all of their friends and family members in one room and they took full advantage of that fact so that they could all celebrate until the last song played. 

Ralynn & Andy: Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. It was fantastic and I hope that my photos captured the love, excitement, and beauty to the fullest extent possible. Here’s to many years of happiness to you both!
