Hello! Happy Beautiful Friday! With that opening, I am about to show you a wedding that literally looked like a set up, styled, photography shoot but was actually real life…that’s right! Tabitha and Jeffrey have their beautiful wedding on the wedding blog right now! Give them all your Hannah Barlow Photography love and Enjoy! Their Wheeling Wedding in a Field is live!
Tabitha had details to die for! I’m telling you…photographers spend a lot of time and money to get together for a day and create a mock wedding for photos like this. This wedding? REAL LIFE!
Alright! Now that I got all that ooey gooeyness out of the way. Let’s talk about the whole day and not just this couple and all their pretty details. Get ready! So, I started out last Saturday at Fredrick’s Day Spa to capture some time while the bride got her hair and makeup done. That’s where I got to meet Erika and Tyler who were the very best side kicks for the day. They were capturing video and I can’t even wait to see it!
The morning went SO quickly. We knew this would happen going into this day. Tabitha and Elegant Event Solutions spent lots of time compiling a timeline for this wedding. Even though we fell behind a bit in the morning, we caught up later and you just WAIT to see this photos!
But first…the first look! HUGE shoutouts to everyone involved – video, family, friends, the bride…the groom! We used extreme teamwork to get these two love birds to this point in the day. I’m going to show you all of that at the end of the year in the behind the scenes blogs, but for now, enjoy this emotional first look between the soon to be Mr. & Mrs!
ALL the emotions at this first look!
Then, we took them out in the field for those ooOOo so important photos!! I just can’t! SO pretty!
The sky was on point for these wide angle shots!
Don’t take them too seriously though. What you can’t see is that there were lots and lots and LOTS of laughs too! We got the best of both worlds!
Tabitha…you look like a GODDESS!
I’ve never had two people stand so close while I did individuals and just rave about one another the whole time! Look at those looks on their faces. This wasn’t prompted either! Nope! Love right there!
Groom photos next!
Then, we had a little grasshopper friend join us and Tabitha was in love!
More bride and groom photos. I mean, why not?!
The black and white ones may be my favorites and that never ever happens! I’m all about the color but these look magazine worthy, right?!
I mean…I know I said it before…but that sky! I shot my photos off to the side while Erika and Tyler did their video thing!
But again..Vogue worthy poses aside…we didn’t miss out on the jokes and laughs either!
Nope! We got it ALL this day!
I’m never really done so let’s do some more!! AND MORE!
I’d put good money down that people will see these and think it was a paid shoot. I mean…I got paid, of course, BUT this was not a pretend wedding we paid to put together for sake of photos. Nope! This was a REAL wedding!
Time to make them husband and wife! This whole wedding was held on Jeffrey’s family’s property!
Tabitha requested some more unique shots after family formals. Ask and you shall receive!
Ok. Ok. OK! Sitting photos may be the new “must have” photos! IN LOVE!
Then, it was time for their intimate dinner and reception with their closest family and friends! Seriously though. Tabitha pouring champagne?! WHY are the simplest photos so great?!
We had dinner and then they cut their cake and shared a first dance.
After some speeches and dessert followed by the garter removal and bouquet toss, they changed their clothes for a send off! Just like that, they were off as the new Mr. & Mrs. Kinneer!
Whoa! This all happened so fast for me! From the moment I met Tabitha, we talked all about her wedding. We talked all the details and she attended every single wedding workshop. She hired amazing vendors and I hope this was everything she wanted it to be and more. I mean, I know a lot of photographers who would have paid this couple just for some of these photographs. For real!
One more time, give this couple all your love because they are husband and wife! Congrats to the Kinneers!
