Weddings are funny. Especially if you play some kind of role in one.
This weekend I was the photographer for Kaitlynn Walton and Tra Coffey. The wedding was in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma which is about two hours from our homes in Northwest Arkansas.
Logan and I walked into the house around dinner time on friday. Logan, the maid of honor, and me, the photographer were welcomed by her family very quickly and ushered into the living room to meet everyone who was already gathered there. Aunts, uncles, siblings, parents and grandparents came out to meet us and get to know who we were. Logan and the bride were handed flowers to make corsage, boutonniere and bouquets for the next day. I was sat down at the table with her aunt’s wedding book from 21 years ago.
Kaitylnn’s aunt, and really her whole family, were so much fun to be around this weekend that I really cannot imagine having been as comfortable as I was anywhere else. It was my first wedding as THE photographer and that was a pretty nerve-racking experience, but I did so much enjoy laughing and joking and taking pictures with her family this weekend.
I will be editing soon. Check back for photo updates!
