Krystal & Erik’s Wedding

Wow.  Sunday was an amazing day as I had the opportunity to shoot Krystal & Erik’s wedding.

I had been eagerly awaiting this day ever since I shot their phenomenal e-session ( click on “old blog” and their name to see more ).

Lisa, who I really have to thank early since she stayed late ( ), and I met up with Krystal at the Hilton to get some photos of her and the girls getting ready.  I stayed around to make sure we got some shots of her amazing shoes and dress, and then I had to stay to get a shot of her in the dress.

The ceremony and reception were at Le Pavillion ( ).  While the cocktail hour was going on, we took the party limo over to Memorial Park.  Yes, that’s right…I shot at Memorial Park. 

For those of you who don’t know, Memorial Park is one of ( if not THE ) most photographed places in Memphis and a place that I had adamantly refused to go to for over a year.  But I had been thinking about some new shots that I wanted to try out that fit the look for Krystal and Erik.  And then the more I thought about it, the more excited I got.

After dinner, Erik gave one of the most touching speeches I’ve heard to his bride.  And then the DJ cranked up the music and people started partying. 

Finally, when everything was finished we headed downtown.  Krystal & Erik were such great subjects and I can’t wait ’til they get back from Cabo so they can see the rest.

I know, I know.  You want some pics, here they are…
