Liane & Jimmy’s Wedding

  Liane and Jimmy were married at Mariner’s Landing at Smith Mountain Lake in Huddleston, Virginia.  Kerry Keeney was there to coordinate and did a marvelous job keeping everything running smoothly.

  We started the day with the bride and her family in a beautiful suite overlooking the water.  We got some shots of the dress before borrowing the rings and bouquet for a little close up action.

  Jimmy and the guys waited as the rest of the bridal party entered, I have a series when Jimmy first sees Liane coming down the aisle and his “allergies started acting up”!  It was a very sweet moment as he wiped a couple of tears from his eye. 086 - CopyLiane’s Dad gives her a kiss as he gives her away…130 - Copy  A stunning location for a beautiful ceremony with a great couple…178  Exiting it’s all smiles…197  The formals looked great on the dock overlooking the Lake…242  During the reception we stole the bride and groom away for a little quieter more intimate shoot with the two of them…376  A sandy beach, beautiful day, stunning couple what more could I ask for?397400
