So last week I posted part one of Michael & Laura’s wedding in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Can you guess what’s next?
Yep, part two.
You deserve a cookie.
There’s always that one photo from a shoot that makes you go “heck yeah”. That photo from this shoot was completely unplanned. Our time to shoot photos between the ceremony and reception was cut a tad short so near the end of the reception I stole Laura and Michael to do a few bride and groom shots. What happened next may have never happened had we had the time we originally planned on. Had the stars not aligned. Had Michael not totally blown my mind.
It went like this. I’m shooting a few shots and Michael starts to unbutton his shirt. I went with it. As he pulls his shirt apart the superman logo shows through the opening. I could not have planned that. Even if I had, I don’t know if I could convince a groom to wear a superman shirt under his tux. It would certainly be a challenge to get the bride’s approval. In that moment I experienced nerdy photographer bliss. Here’s the part two of their wedding and the heck yes photo.
I love weddings. I love planing them. I love shooting them. I love going to them.
This past week we went to Tulsa to celebrate our two good friends Joel and Bethia. I love them. For serious.
There were babies babies everywhere. We got our fill, but now that we’re home I’m missing the squishy babies.
I had the honor of creating custom party printables for Bethia and Joel’s wedding, it was so much fun collaborating with the and trying to create elements that really showed who they are. Seeing them in use made me smile.
It was super weird not the be the photographer and to instead be photographed in a wedding (I was a bridesmaid). In an attempt to still get photos of my friend and stay out of the photographer’s way I started to sneak into one of the showers in the getting ready room. To my surprise it turned on. I was SO confused and couldn’t figure out what was going on. Luckily the curtain was between myself and the heavily spraying water, thank you shower curtain, you helped me avoid what could have been a very wet and tragic experience.
Joel pulled me away from Bethia getting ready to ask about the order of the reception. I think he was nervous.
Like I said it was super weird to not be the photographer, so Tabitha (a friend and fellow bridesmaid) twirled around in the beautiful light and fall leaves while Bill tossed leaves into the air and I shot photos. At that moment I knew these people loved me. Tee Hee.
The photographer was a trooper and let me get my fill of a few shots, the light was just SO amazing!!
I’m excited to see the rest of their wedding photos, I love shooting weddings with two photographers because though you may be shooting the same thing the perspective can be immensely different.
Have I mentioned that I love these two?
Congratulations Joel and Bethia we love you both and are insanely excited for you!
(more to come in A Tulsa Wedding Part 2)
It’s been quite the happening place around here for the last two weeks. There was Bill’s birthday, being part of a hoard of Zombies, finishing up some great shoots and graphics, a high school play, car troubles, flying to Tulsa, a bridal shoot, a wedding, seeing old friends, a post wedding shoot, the most delicious cappuccino ever, asking if there is a doctor on the plane, EMS, emergency room, follow up doctors visits and catching up on back logged work. To put it lightly, it’s been busy. So until I can get all the posts together, here’s the last few days in instagrams…
I’ve never understood the traditional guestbook, a small 5×7 book that a bunch of people sign. What do you do with that? I don’t imagine people look through it years later and say, “Look at Aunt Sue’s signature, OH the memories!” Its not something you’d set on your coffee table for guests to flip through. The best thing it could be for would be to practice your friends’ and families’ signatures if ever you and your new beau turn to a life of crime and forgery.
So I’ve decided to redefine the wedding guestbook.
Meet Bethia & Joel’s wedding guestbook. We took their favorite photos from their engagement session, compiled them into a hard bound book, and left some room for signatures and notes to be added by loved ones on their big day.
The engagement session is my favorite to shoot and I think the time where the husband-and-wife-to-be get to really shine. We tailor the session around who they are, their interests, and their love and we’re not restricted by wedding planners, or time constraints of the next thing on the wedding day agenda. Its also the time where I get to really know them before the wedding, which makes the day of so much more comfortable.
I’m also doing all the party printable designs for their wedding. I developed this monogram seal which we used on the back of their guestbook, the invitations, and all around the wedding reception. The book is hinge bound, so the pages lay flat. This way you get to see the whole image, pages don’t bend or crease, and its much easier for family and friends to write messages on.
And that’s how we do wedding guest books here at Diliberto Photo & Design!
Had the pleasure of shooting Anna & John’s wedding this past Saturday. They were a very fun couple, willing to do whatever for pictures despite the humidity and warm weather. Thanks guys, I wish you the best!
Here are the much awaited bridal shoot from a few weeks back. I JUST got back from shooting her wedding, it was beautiful and I will post pictures soon. In the mean time here are a few shots from her bridal session.
For now I am going to go relax and beg my husband to rub my feet.
I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this backyard wedding. The bride and her family thought of every little detail. It was so beautiful and it made our job as their photographers SO easy. For this wedding I partnered with my good friend Andrea of Ethan Avery Photography, she’s super talented and just loads of fun to work with. Other than shooting weddings Andrea is a birth photographer and does AMAZING work.
Anyways, back to the wedding, I’ll let the photos speak for the beauty of the bride, the wedding and a couple’s love…
