This past weekend was a busy one with a wedding on Friday and another on Sunday. I had the pleasure of shooting with Amanda Phillips on both as she assisted me on Friday and I helped her on Sunday. I'm posting a few from her wedding first and Friday's wedding will follow. I was really excited to shoot at the Biltmore. The Bride and Groom used both ballrooms and Lauren could pass as a princess any day so she fit right in. Here are a few of my favorites.

The Ceremony was beautifully spoken by the pastor as well everyone else involved. Here both families came forward to pray over and bless their children as they make the transistion of leaving their mothers and fathers and cleaving to one another. The gesture was powerful and said a lot about the upbringing and parenting of both families.

I love the sweetness of this photo. Amanda was shooting the formals and the flower girl was patiently waiting for something a little more exciting to happen.

The father daughter dance had everyone bawling. The song was about the most tear jerking ballad I've ever heard from a father's perspective on his daughter's marriage. I don't know what it was but I'll find out.

This isn't the best angle for the bride and groom but I love the look on the "single guys" faces. I think the guy on the right and in the middle saw a little more than they should have as her dress was lifted up.

Congratulations Caleb and Lauren and thanks Amanda for the opportunity to shoot with you!

Hey Shawna! It was so great to meet you! You are so sweet! I am so excited about the pictures. You did an amazing job. I love both you and Amanda's work, and I can't wait to see all of them. It was such a blessing to work with you both. Thank you for everything! =)

P.S. The Father/Daughter song was "Cinderella" by Stephen Curtis Chapman. That dance was hard to get through lol!
