Capturing the Love: A Wedding Photography Story

Updated: Apr 1, 2023

A beautiful wooded wedding nestled next to one of the best fishing spots in Louisiana, Destiny said yes to her Prince Charming Dustin. July spared no reprise from the heat, but there was no denying the love between the two that day. Happy for you both!


As a photographer, there's nothing quite like being asked to capture the special moments of a family member's wedding day. And that's exactly what happened when I was asked to photograph my niece's wedding at Toledo Bend in Louisiana.


The day started with a first look between the bride and her father. It was a beautiful moment that was filled with emotion and love. The two of them shared a few words before they hugged, and I was able to capture the tenderness of that moment.



Next, it was time for the first look between the bride and groom. They had chosen a beautiful spot by the lake, and the natural light was perfect. As the groom turned around to see his bride for the first time, I was able to capture the look of pure joy on his face. The two of them hugged and kissed, and I was able to capture some beautiful shots of them together.



The ceremony took place on a balcony overlooking the lake, and it was simply stunning. The backdrop of the water and the trees created a magical atmosphere that was enhanced by the love that was in the air. As the couple exchanged their vows, I was able to capture the raw emotion and beauty of the moment.



After the ceremony, we took some intimate photos of the bride and groom. We chose a spot by the lake, and the soft light of the sun provided the perfect setting for some truly beautiful shots. The couple was relaxed and happy, and it was a joy to be able to capture their love on camera.




As the day drew to a close, I felt a sense of satisfaction and joy. Being able to capture the special moments of my niece's wedding day was truly an honor. The photos that I took will serve as a lasting reminder of the love and joy that was present on that beautiful day.


From the first look with the bride and her father to the intimate photos of the bride and groom, it was a joy to be able to capture the love and happiness of the day. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of this special occasion, and I look forward to seeing the memories that these photos will create for years to come.


Please keep this family in your prayers if you are reading this blog as Dustin tragically died in an accident not long before their first wedding anniversary.
