{Photo Shoot} Dawn & Derek’s Courthouse Wedding

I have plenty of food posts in queue for you all, don’t worry. Adam and I are in serious “spring budget mode” so honestly, you all don’t want to read about the 20 different ways we’re enjoying whole wheat pasta. Trust me.

In these days of social media, Facebook in particular, it never ceases to amaze me the number of people with whom I’ve reconnected. Old middle school friends that are just as goofy as they were back then, fellow high school band nerds who have made it as musicians, and college friends from across the country. It was thrilling for me to hear from my friend Dawn (from my college days) back in January right after she got engaged asking if this “photo thing” was something I do for weddings. I told her that yes, it was, but I’d only had experience shooting one very small wedding last year.

Luckily, “very small” was what Dawn had in mind, and after a very nostalgic phone conversation, she had me booked for her courthouse wedding on Monday, March 11. Why a Monday? The happy couple wanted to keep their dating anniversary, so in the middle of state testing, I took a personal day to head down to photograph the bride and groom.

Dawn’s vision of her wedding was realized with beautiful silk flowers, a tea-length dress, and adorable little details. She was surrounded by family and friends, and her best friend from Texas surprised her by coming into town for the wedding!
