We’re back and starting the wedding year off with a bang. This year’s wedding and bridal is with A Formal Affair put on the by the Chattanooga News Free Press. This was our first time being that the Formal Affair and I have to say it was no disappointment. We saw over 220 Brides to be and got to spend some time learning about their days!
This year’s headliner was Duff Goldman – the Ace of Cakes! In a cake contest to see who has the best wedding cakes! And who better to judge! Than the Ace of Cakes himself!
We start off our slideshow with Jennifer Sills – Owner of Cup a Dee Cakes. You can see her working on her masterpiece wedding cake along with the other cakes that were entered into the contest. Moving through the slides another impressive wedding cake is the Volkswagen. Out of all the cakes made, these 2 stood out more than any other. I was told by one of the judges that the Volkswagen cake looked more reminiscent of a groom’s cake and hands down, Cup a Dee Cakes had best of show!
Then we have our Wedding photography booth. This year we’ve changed our wedding price list to something a bit classier: Accordion style cards which were a big hit! Lots of people came to the booth didn’t want to touch them in fear of messing them up! Our booth was full of color and popping with vibrancy as we riddle the walls with pictures from our Weddings, Engagements, and Day After Sessions.
Next we have shots of various wedding vendors
Then, we are introduced to the Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman to talk about small business and to share some of his experiences. This guy’s funny and down to earth.
Then we move on to the show where many beautiful dresses were modeled by ladies just as beautiful.
At the end of the show Duff comes back out and announces the winner of the cakes tasting contest and waves goodbye.
It was an awesome experience for me being about to shoot the show as I’ve never been able to this before. It’s been a while since we had picked up the camera due to our slow winter wedding season, only having 2 weddings in Dec and January. So I very much enjoyed trying something new with the catwalk and being able to shoot a celebrity.

Wow…its been awhile but we have lots to show you. As we’re winding up our wedding season and the spring has sprung, fall as fallen and now winter approaches, we’ll have time to add some of the fruit of our labor to this blog. We’ve been crazy busy the last fw months trying to play catch up and then October turns out to be one of the busiest months we’ve had…..ever.
This is Eric and Kristen. We had the priviledge of shooting their wedding at Patten Chapel last year at UTC. They Chose to include with their weddign a Day After Session and i must say…WOW!….Are we and they, glad they did. These 2 were amazing to photograph and the place could not be more perfect.
Due to the fact that there are so many pictures we want to show you, we’re dividing this up into 3 sections: the morning, afternoon and evening shoots.
This, my friends, is what Day After Sessions are all about.
We started off with sunrise session on Tybee Island beach. We were out before the sun came up and started working with off camera lighting in hopes to catch the sun rising out of the ocean…and we did.
Chattanooga Wedding and Portrait Photographers in Savannah Ga
After spending some relaxing personal time on the beach after the first session, waiting for the lighting to be just right we head off to Savannah where we start out in Forsythe Park and work our way down through Bull St. in the heart of Savannah. Let me jst say this…you cant get allof Savannah in one day. I wish we had more time there..it s like being in a differnt country that you never want to leave.
Here’s what we got in the little time we were there…
Chattanooga Wedding and Portrait Photographers: A Trash the Dress Session
Finally as our day comes to an end we head back to Tybee Island for a Trash the Dress session. Yes…Ocean pics! We love the water! And as you might have guessed, if you havent seen these pictures on Facebook yet, this couple is just as good looking wet as they are dry. They were an absolutely amazing couple to work and spend time with. We cant thank them enough for the Day After Session in Tybee Island and Savannah Ga. We got to get away for a weekend and we got some beautiful stuff that you cant just get anywhere.
I recommend Day After Sessions to every person we set down with and after seeing these, do we even need to question why?
