Robert was a high school senior in Virginia Beach, and he graduated last spring.  I enjoyed taking his senior pictures one morning on the beach as the sun was coming up, but I’m not sure he like that hour of the day so much!  But the light was great… and it’s all about the light.  Robert is a freshman this year at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia.

Zani-Akers Wedding at Twin Cedar Farm Near Maryville, Tennessee

On Saturday, August 27th, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Beth Zani and Chris Akers in a ceremony that took place near Maryville, Tennessee, at beautiful Twin Cedar Farm.  This is a lovely country place for a wedding – complete with a gazebo by a small pond, a horse-drawn wagon ride to the wedding site for all members of the wedding party, and a special horse-drawn coach for the bride and groom.  After a lovely ceremony next to the water, the festivities moved inside for some dancing and a buffet meal for the invited guests.  It looked like everyone was having a pretty good time!  As the evening wound down, the bride and her matron of honor decided they wanted to jump into the pond with their gowns on… and they did! Enjoy this small sample of pictures from the bride and groom’s romantic and special day.  Also check out my Facebook site for more pictures from the wedding.
