Ah Summer! Wedding photographers have a love/hate relationship with Summer. On one hand, it’s usually quite nice outside which makes for a good outdoor wedding. On the other hand, sometimes that means the occasional AC-breaking heat wave that doesn’t seem to care that we have a 12+ hour workday weighed down by formal clothes and camera equipment. But those summer sunsets….they are the best for wedding photos. Luckily, Betsy and Jack had chosen Advent United Methodist Church to for their ceremony, and the gorgeous Oaks Wedding Venue in Anderson to host their reception. This turned out to be the perfect blend of indoors and outdoors that allow for unique wedding photos while simultaneously keeping me out of the hospital for heat exhaustion.
Betsy and Jack are such fun people to be around. I enjoyed working with them on their engagement session, and their wedding was no different. It really does take a special type of person to run around all day long dealing with schedules and stress, and still be willing to take extra photos at the end of the day when they should be relaxing. But everything turned out ok – the weather held out and wasn’t too hot, their venue was perfect, and we got to end the day with some sweet sunset shots.
The three photos above perfectly represent their day – happiness, love, and beauty. Check out the rest of their amazing day below:
Betsy’s fun-loving bridal party made their preparation photos a breeze. They were truly a great group to work with and they made my job fun. As always, the guys have the easier job when it comes to getting ready. A few minutes in the Advent CLC and they were ready to go.
After the ceremony, it was off to The Oaks Wedding Venue in Anderson SC. This was my first time at The Oaks, and I really enjoyed it. As you will see below, it is a venue that has the best of both worlds – a nice indoor area combined with everything you could ask for in an outdoor area. Trees, a lake, flowers, a small dock – basically a playground for wedding photography. Nearly everyone involved in the wedding attended Clemson university, and their reception had a surprise guest appearance by the Tiger! This was definitely one of the more memorable receptions I’ve photographed.
