It's not too often that I get a last minute call to photograph a wedding. Frankly, it kind of freaks me out when I do! I worry that if a couple waits until the last minute to hire a photographer, they might not value photography or they might make a hasty decision about hiring me even if I'm not a good fit. Elisabeth called me just 2 weeks before her wedding day! I am so glad I happened to be open! This couple was so cute and so great to work with! I also was lucky enough to hire a former photography student to be my second shooter. What a relief that she was free, because she did an excellent job. Sara Parks is someone to watch for! Many of her images are included in this post! Thanks, Sara!
This beautiful wedding took place at the Omaha Country Club. It was the finale to a perfect September day. The atmosphere had sort of a garden wedding feel with iced beverages served before the processional. But, what happened afterward was what was new to me! Elisabeth and John had a "Second Line," a tradition popular in New Orleans. With a Mardi Gras brass band, the guests were paraded back to the club house. It couldn't have been more fun!
So glad you found me Elisabeth and John! I had a great time!
