Summer Woodbine Mansion Wedding

August 27, 2022

Realistically, I should not have been available to photograph this wedding. I was supposed to be in Vegas the day before Logan and Michael’s wedding date to see the Killers…. But when I took their engagement photos earlier this year I quickly realized I couldn’t imagine *not* photographing their wedding day.

I was over the moon when Logan and Michael felt the same way, and hired me to capture their perfect summer wedding at Woodbine Mansion.

And honestly… it was TOTALLY worth skipping a vacation because it was one of my favorite wedding days of all time. Between their supportive and fun wedding party, their deep love for each other, and having had planned an amazingly well organized and beautiful day… it’s one of those weddings I know I’ll be sharing photos from for years to come.

Logan and Michael built the most essential thing for great photography into their shot list: TIME.

They had so much time to just enjoy themselves with their loved ones, and we documented so many once in a lifetime photos because of it. Some of my favorite candid moments include the bridal party choreographing TikTok videos, the girls opening their wedding gifts and handwritten letters, and Logan’s surprise first look with her grandmother.

I apologize in advance that this is a LONG blog post, but there were simply too many magical moments to share. Take a look through Logan and Michael’s wedding to get an idea of how a documentary-style approach to your wedding photography can enhance your wedding experience.
