Married // Lori & Eric


So much to say about Lori and Eric’s beautiful Brentwood wedding at Cool Springs House. I’ll start with thanking Chesley Summar for asking me to second shoot with her. This year I set my schedule to have a good mix of weddings as both primary and secondary because there are different skill sets required to do each well, and I love second shooting because it affords me the opportunity to focus solely on finding unique angles and pushing myself creatively.

I also want to thank Lori and Eric. What an amazing couple. Lori was a beautiful bride with a smile that would light up any room. She also has a great eye for details, putting together all of the amazing details for the wedding (there were a lot of them as you’ll see). And Eric was probably one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. A Texas transplant, his first language was Southern hospitality.

Lori’s dress and birdcage veil were beautiful. They also fit the feel of their classic Southern outdoor wedding to a T. Cool Springs House is located in Crockett Park just down the road from where I live actually. I’ve seen many weddings there as I go down to Crockett Park often to cycle and I’ve been looking forward to the day I could shoot a wedding there myself. It’s the perfect setting.

These two shots from the ceremony are some of my favorites from the day. I love how happy they look in the first one, and how Eric is looking at Lori in the second. That’s exactly what love looks like and why I do what I do.

    I love so much that they had the ceremony in front of the old building!!! What a stunning day, and such a “head over heels in love” couple. You captured it so incredibly well too, such fantastic, real moments. Kudos!
