Yesterday I spent the day on a golf cart with a very recognizable face…Monday was the Ronald McDonald House Golf Classic at the Kenwood Country Club. So from 9:30am to 6pm I rode around on a golf cart with Ronald McDonald and his assistant, Michelle. Our challenge was to capture group shots of Mr. McDonald and all of the participating golf pairs. Even after our cart’s battery died, and the man in the make-up had to push the cart up the very large hill did we still manage to have the most fun out of the entire golf course population. (Eventually, he went for a replacement and I jumped out to push while Michelle steered -I’m not that much of a princess type.)
A week ago I shot my very first backyard wedding and it was beautiful! The bride was gorgeous in her tea-length dress and the groom looked ever so handsome in his grey-jacket suit. The weather was HOT and the turn-out was amazing.
Leah had a huge family and I had the privilege of meeting ever member. Each one was incredibly welcoming and rather humorous. 😉
I actually arrived to my first destination early and had the privilege of hanging out with the bride’s two nephews and their adorably new puppy, Rigby! For those wondering, Rigby is a Bernese Mountain Dog.
The theme of the day was Chabby-Chic and every thing looked amazing and pretty darn chic! There were fresh-cut flowers everywhere; beautiful, yet mis-matched china adorned every table; and one of my favorite decorations, framed mirrors hung next to the bride & groom’s table.Can you imagine my excitement when the bride asked me to do her a favor and take her picture with puppy Rigby?! Seriously? Like I would say no!!!Leah and Bobby’s first meeting of the day!Even with the heat index at 100 degrees, everyone stuck it out with me for the formal/wedding party photos!The bride’s family had this incredible collection of older/antique furniture. (Did you notice the couch in the dress picture?) For the Daddy-Daughter Dance, Leah was surprised with a favorite era song, “Daddy’s Little Girl.” And not only was she surprised by the song choice, but by the family members that sang it to her. (Notice Dad in this first shot) Que the tears and Kleenex! This was one of my favorite moments of the day!And at the end of the dances, my day came to a close.
Wishing the happy couple another HUGE Congratulations and a special thanks for inviting me to document the big day! It was an absolute pleasure!
