Deriesha & Michael's Wedding [Condensed] | Mount Aery Baptist Church, Bridgeport, CT

June 28, 2014  •  20 Comments

I left this wedding knowing that there was no way I could call this blog post a "sneak peek" without sounding like a total liar. So call this the "condensed" version. Whatever I decide to post in a few weeks will be the extended version.

Is that alright? :)

I've only known these two for a few months now, and I'm already in love with them. Photographing this union was the highlight of my weekend!

You all know that I love bright colors, right? I mean, come on--just take a look at my logo haha. Ladies, you looked absolutely beautiful! :)

I was so excited that I almost smacked myself in the face with the camera. I took 2 shots, looked at the screen, and my heart fell--Fritz, the MC, had tripped over my lights (or something) and my flash didn't go off. But how many of you know that I serve I mighty God? He created a man who created PhotoShop, and that's how I brought this almost-black image back to life. Praise God!!! :)

I had to lie down in the gravel to get this shot. Thank God that the Nikon D610 can go up to ISO 2000 or else all hope would have been lost.
