Johanna and Eric – Gideon Putnam Resort
It seems now, when I get the chance to take a break from album designs and orders, that blogging is just a breath of fresh air. I have been DYING to blog Johanna & Eric’s wedding from a few weeks ago ever since the day they booked me well over a year ago! I had this feeling, as soon as I talked to Johanna on the phone, that their wedding was going to be a great one, and after their engagement session out in California, this feeling was even further confirmed that I would be smiling or laughing through their whole wedding day. Johanna is an actress/model (aka. every photographers’ dream) and Eric is a comedic writer, and the two together are just fabulous. Kristin joined me, and we really had a blast! I hope you enjoy the preview of their “Old Hollywood” wedding at Gideon Putnam Resort… Happy viewing!
This image makes me laugh, as do most getting ready images with the guys… who knew ready-made ties were so tricky?!
i absolutely love fish-net veils… also, love this image of Johanna putting it on.
this is one of the shots that I take VERY carefully. But, I think it is absolutely beautiful. Johanna went all out with her Old Hollywood theme- all the way down to enduring the danger of having “old fashioned” stockings which snapped up with a garter belt… for the sake of modesty, there is not a full body shot of her mom snapping them for her, but that is what is happening. :-)
Love the joy in this one of Johanna getting her dress on, and her maid of honor getting her necklace ready for her.
Johanna was a stunning bride… so much so that I couldn’t decide which one of her portraits I like more! this one…
or this one (taken a second later)…
Just married! (you probably remember this one from the teaser- I still love Eric’s expression!)
I was going to share my shot of the groomsmen together because there is a sequence of about 5 that really make me laugh, but the guys’ faces are too small on it for the full blog effect. So, instead, I share one of Kristin’s shots of one of the same moments… Eric’s lil brother. :-D
I had to get creative with the ring shots since we had NO natural light left, and I desperately wanted to stick to their wedding theme… so, here are my two favorites! Guess where they are taken?
Awh, the first dance!
And… the cake. Now, I am not much of a cake girl… except when they are like this. Taking detail shots of this one was PURE torture!! The smell of dark chocolate truffles and orange cake made me want to dive face-first into this mass of yumminess, but thankfully, I held back… at least until the end of the night when I snatched a piece.
Oh, there are too many dancing shots to share. Johanna & Eric’s guests were phenomenal dancers and they certainly knew how to have a great time. Here is Johanna dancing with her mom.
And finally… Johanna & Eric had a photobooth at their wedding. Now, I have seen these before at weddings, and I love watching guests huddle around them or pack 10 people into a seat intended for two… but I usually refrain from partaking in the festivities… this time, however, Kristin and I could not help ourselves. During our dinner break, we snuck in. …and laughed real hard for hours over it! We may just have to make a poster and put it up in the studio… maybe. ;-)
Since the sun had set before the end of their ceremony (and Johanna & Eric did not want to see each other before the ceremony), we did a Day After session with them! That blog post will be coming sometime early next week… before then, I will share Michelle & Dan’s engagement session that I did VERY early the morning after this wedding.
Reminder: Holiday order deadline is November 11, which is coming quicker than I know! Crazy!
