Shannon & Justin – 7.5.08

I’m short on time this week, so I’m going to do a bit of a post-and-run, but I wanted to show a handful of pictures from a couple of weeks ago. I met North Carolina’s own Amy Martin to photograph Shannon and Justin’s wedding at the Hilton Arlington. The ceremony and the reception both took place there in the Grand Ballroom, which made for a relaxed, easy day since everything was easily accessible. We were really lucky to have a fairly cool day (in the 80s) considering that it was July. Shannon was warm and friendly, even through her anxious jitters, and Justin was cool and easy-going. Both were wonderful to spend time with, and so easy to photograph. I could not take my eyes/lens off of this amazingly gorgeous couple for one moment – they were clearly uber into each other, and so happy to be getting married.

A few details:

If you’ve ever seen What Not To Wear on TLC, you’re familiar with Stacy London’s favorite phrase, “SHUT UP” when someone just looks super amazing, so with that I’d like to show you a few SHUT UP-worthy images of these two:




A really sweet father-daughter dance.

And this picture just cracks me up – these two kiddos happily played GameBoy (Nintendo DS if we’re being specific) for the better part of the reception.

Best wishes and congratulations Shannon and Justin! You were both so amazingly hospitable and fun to be around. I really enjoyed being a part of your day! And Amy, I had a great time working with you! Any time you’re in the area and need a hand, please do give me a shout.
