The Wedding

Sam and Jared's Wedding took place on August 6th, 2016. It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony that took place at Country Wildflower Bed and Breakfast.  

The ceremony started at 1:00 in the afternoon and the weather was a perfect summer day with a nice breeze to keep the bugs away. Jared got ready in Beaumont and Sam got ready at Country Wildflower. The wedding party was 5 on each side, so 12 total including the bride and groom. After the ceremony we did the family photos on location because there were so many nice options to choose from. When the family photos were finished we moved to another location with Sam and Jared. 

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO

This image was taken near one of the creeks. We wanted to utilize the flowers in the foreground as much as possible. We asked Sam to pretend that she was leading Jared down the path. I think the pink flowers add a nice border to the bottom of the image and pushes your eye towards the couple. We wanted to have a nice wide image. 

PHOTOGRAPHY NOTES 

This image was created using a Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 70-200mm 2.8L series lens. The only difficulty with this image would have been the bugs. 

The reception took place at the Red Tail Golf Course.
