Nola wedding

An New Orleans inspired Vietnamese Wedding in Savannah GA!  Honestly, didn’t know where to start with this one and a picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words..right? Life is good my friends, I’ve been been super busy this year, going to wedding after wedding, but it has been so so good.  I seriously love what I do.  I’ve been wanting to get this wedding out into the blogoshphere for quite sometime.  Thanks so much for all the emails and comments in response to my recent work, I have so so much I want to share with you all.  But this one has been tugging at me, so here we go.  I love when I get to go home and shoot in Savannah, GA.. Jamie and I were in marching band together in high school, and she now lives in New orleans with here now hubby Kieran.  If you know me you know New orleans is home for a long term project of mine, so I am always super thrilled when I see elements of New Orleans in other places around the world.  Jamie and Kieran brought a lot of Nola back with them when they planned their wedding in Savannah, GA and their planner Marvee from Posh, petals and pearls helped it run so smoothly.  Seriously, the entire weekend was so much fun!  They had a rehearsal dinner at the Wyld in Savannah, which I don’t show any pictures of simply because of space…It was so perfectly Savannah, with a space right on the dock, an oyster roast, a pig roast and so much more. The day before the wedding we did a sunrise connection session, where the three boated over to Wassaw island and had the entire islands to ourselves …it was pure music.  I love doing this with my clients, because they get to step away from the hustle and bustle and I get to create on an island…it’s a win win!   Ugh.. i loved that set so much.  I started the blog with just a few of those, then we hit the ground running with the wedding day.  They got ready near Forsyth Park, then headed to Ships of the Sea Museum for the loveliest of ceremonies.  Okay, I feel like i could just keep telling you about all the love and laughter that this day was drenched in but I should just show you.  And this blog post is long …I know… but I love it…so no more words just pictures!

Oh and big big ups to Denise Gonsales for creating along side me and suffering my whims!

Jamie & KC, this is for your cheer, and for your children’s cheer.  With the warmest hugs, Congratulations -Adonye Jaja

I’ll be visiting in New Orleans soon!!

Steve & Claire

This one was a grand day for me filled with wonderful people and so many beautiful children.  The drive up to Devil’s thumb Ranch was a beautiful snowy dream, that happens so often in Colorado.  I am only sad I couldn’t show you more photos of the snow covered pine.  Mmm..maybe in another post.  Steve & Claire’s wedding was absolutely perfect; filled with so many real moments and so much laughter!  There a few moments I blogged below that really epitomize what a real wedding is like.  There is an idea in photography that a photographer should “see order among the chaos”  or something like that.  This wedding wasn’t chaotic at all, it was actually extremely pleasant, but every event has it’s moving parts and trying to find photographs; moreover, imagery as things are happening is the reason I do this.  I love the challenge.. and as an artist I succeed and fail at hitting my mark every time, but there images in this set that I want forever.. and I am so happy for clients who believe in me and let me play. I am glad I can give these images to them forever..it’s no small thing.   Steve & Claire had an all star cast with Bluebird productions at the helm and Prema rocking the style.  Mmm.. just the best people. Steve & Claire, cheers to you and your family and friends! It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you!  I wish you many more smiles, laughs,  and snowy days that remind you to hold each other tight!

For Cheer!
