My jaw dropped to the floor as I arrived at Audri and Allyn’s one year wedding anniversary celebration! Since Allyn is in the military, they were married in a courthouse, and decided on their 1 year anniversary to have an AMAZING wedding celebration. From the decorations, to the bride and groom, and all the details in between, it was a PERFECT night. Thank you guys so much for having me on your special day.

This wedding celebration was shot using a Nikon D800 and D750 camera with 24-70mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8 lenses. Nikon SB-900 and Yongnuo flashes were used to light the reception.

Shae and Jordan tied the knot at The Sanctuary at Water Oak in Conroe, Texas. The forecast showed 100% chance of rain the entire day, and boy, did it rain. S+J didn’t let the rain get in the way of their special day, and thankfully, their venue had plenty of covered outdoor areas for pictures. We worked with some awesome vendors:

Due to a groomsman’s late flight, the wedding timeline was an hour behind schedule, leaving us a total of 20 minutes for family formals, bridal party, and bride+groom portraits. With my awesome second shooter, Ron, we were able to capture a variety of poses+angles.
