Gaunt/Anderson Wedding | Colliers, WV

Good evening, everyone!  I wanted to share this wedding with you all!  I shot this wedding as a second shooter for Cyn Davis Photography.  Now that all the loose ends are tied up, the couple has their photos from Cynthia, and I'm back from the beach....I'm sharing!!!!  It's my favorite thing to do! When I can't talk you ear off, I'll blog your eyes out! :-) Here's some shots I took throughout the day that are favorites of mine!

I arrived at the church early to shoot some details and catch the men getting ready while Cynthia was off with the girls capturing those getting ready moments at the salon.

The Open Door Baptist Church in Colliers, WV was the location for both their ceremony and reception.  It's a beautiful church.  I'd never been here before.  There's so much beauty to photograph!

Black and white dress photos are a MUST, in my opinion.

The room where the men were getting ready was BRIGHT orange.  So, I went scouting and found this neat little location with a fun library as a unique background.  It went went with their color scheme, so I ran with it.  I think they thought I was nuts when I moved them to a new location!  First, we must test out the location with one of the cute, little ring bearers as my subject!

Michael and his groomsmen were one of the most cooperative group of men I've worked with.  They were game for anything!  I wish I could show you all the pictures they happily posed for, but this blog post would go on for years!

Jamie and Michael wanted to say "Hi" to one another right before walking down the aisle.  They didn't actually see each other, but you could see and feel the love yourself.  I think it calmed the nerves a little bit too! That's a plus!  I love the second photo because Jamie was starting to tear up.  So sweet!

Cynthia styled this shot below.  I can't take credit for this idea, but it's a beautiful photo that I was able to sneak!  The shot below it shows what the boys were doing while we were taking formals.  Anything to keep the kids entertained!

It rained....and drizzled....and rained a little more this day.  It FINALLY dried up enough that we could all go outside and sneak a few formal pictures though! YAY!

You don't see people throwing bird seed at weddings very often anymore.  It was a nice surprise!  I like this tradition.

On second thought, we were picking bird seed out of their hair for the remainder of the night, so maybe that's why people don't do it often anymore! HA!

Congratulations, Jamie and Michael!  Thank you for letting me tag along with Cynthia and be a part of your day!  I hope you both enjoy a long and happy marriage with your two beautiful boys!
