It's rare when, when shooting a wedding I feel such an emotion of joy and excitement during the ceremony part of the wedding day.  Not because it lacks anything special and to the contrary it is the most important event of the day.  This day was different and maybe because of the connection.  Curtis is the guy that everyone knows!  Even when we were in college, going back to when we were in the Troy State University band together (yes, I was in band), everyone on campus knew Curtis.  And Leah, she's the girl that makes an impact on your life through encouragement and making you feel always welcome.  Together, the Lord has used them in such and amazing way and in so many peoples lives.  But getting to know the two of them together was a special blessing, one that allowed everyone to experience joy throughout the day.  Knowing how much this covenant meant to them and getting to see them join as one, was a perfect example of Christ and His Bride (the church).  Congratulations to you Curtis and Leah!

In the past week I've shared a couple of images from the Camp's wedding, but I wanted to go ahead and reveal the full post.  As a photographer, one of the aspects I love about weddings is the venues that we get to shoot in.  When Susanna told me that their reception venue was the new Auburn Arena and that they were going to be the first wedding couple I knew that there were going to be couples who would die to be the first.  I will say that it was great to be able to walk in there and be in awe of it.  The staff was amazing and if you are interested in it definitely give them a call and get it set up, you will not be disappointed.

Anyway, I want to say a big thanks to Susanna and Hunter, their families and their friends.  We had such an amazing time with y'all and I think the pictures show.

Have you ever been to an AU pregame when they release the eagle?  You can't put into words the excitement and it was hard to put into words the excitement surrounding Susanna and Hunter's wedding this past Saturday.  I couldn't wait till the main post to get this image up so here it is.  What better way to show your AU love than to have the WAR EAGLE flying overhead?  More to come...

Sharon + Will Auburn, Alabama Wedding Photography

The next stop on the road show, the city of the 2011 NCAA National Champions and a couple that loves their Tigers.  Even though I never attended AU, it's always great when we get to roll through there and especially having the opportunity to shoot at the beautiful Julia Collins Art Museum.  For Will and Sharon it was a dream come true of being able to share the things they love and having them all in one place; family, friends and school.  I love how things work out on wedding days.  The ceremony was to be outside, why does that matter?  Because it rained, but the staff at the museum was amazing in accommodating the change of plans.  Even after the hard work and changes, the rain stopped, sun came out, and even had a rainbow make an appearance; the second in my photography career.  Another reason it was such a great day was that we got to celebrate not only a wedding but also Sharon's birthday!  Sharon, happy late birthday!  I hope this preview will be a great present!
