Hillary & Dewayne's Wedding | 655 West | Hiram Wedding Photographer
Hillary & Dewayne’s wedding was my second opportunity to shoot on behalf of Chris Brock’s Premier Wedding Photography Group. I shot this wedding with Chris so as an assistant shooter I had a bit of flexibility to experiment and play around with manual settings like the week before. Last week we went over some of Chris’ favorite tips for shooting weddings, and this week that continued. The venue was a different challenge as last week was indoors and this week we were outside at an awesome venue just Northeast of Atlanta: 655 West.
While Hillary and the girls finished getting ready we took the boys down to the lake for some formals before taking the girls as well. Getting some of the bridal party formals done before the wedding is perfect to allow a little more party time once the celebrations begin! The guys looked great and took the Georgia sun pretty well as we got the shots done as quickly as possible:
The ceremony at 655 West was beautiful with the Fall colors and the blue lake as the backdrop. What more could you ask for on this beautiful day for a wedding?
After the ceremony we finished off the remaining formals down by the lake at 655 West.
Okay okay I know some people love this shot and some people hate it, luckily Hillary and Dewayne didn’t mind having a little fun with their formal wedding photos!
The other great part about 655 West is the multiple areas it has for the wedding. The ceremony naturally has a stellar location down by the lake, and the reception can be hosted up at the main house which features both a courtyard area with seating and a covered dance floor.
Over in the pavilion we cut the cake to much fanfare with Hillary’s surprise she had for Dewayne!
Another amazing Premier Wedding Photography Group shoot! I know Hillary and Dewayne will be a perfect fit for each other as they both love having a great time with a great sense of humor that will serve them well in the future. Wishing you much luck and love in the future, thanks guys!!
