Butterflies, fairies, electronic music, and good times. That was Madison & Will’s wedding! ✨
This was a unique wedding for me, because I actually photographed this as an associate. If you’re not familiar with the term, it means that I photographed this on behalf of another photographer. My friend Jessica DeVoss asked if I would photograph her sister Madison’s wedding, because Jessica would be busy playing the role of bridesmaid and coordinator.
Side note – Some of my past brides & grooms may recognize Jessica because she’s been my second shooter at many weddings over the years!
I loved the challenge of getting to jump into a wedding day and get to know Madison & Will more quickly than usual. I felt super creative, and I really enjoyed the vibe of this wedding day. Madison & Will were married on her parents’ property in Llano, Texas. The giant oak trees and hill country views were so peaceful. It was the perfect environment for their woodland fairy theme. 🧚♀️🌿🦋
Madison’s dress, with a crocheted pattern and long sleeves, gave the most awesome 1970’s vibe that fit so well.
One of my favorite moments of the day was during their bride & groom photo time. We played their favorite music, they danced under the trees, it felt like we were miles away from anyone. After an emotional ceremony, it was a moment of calm before heading to the reception. I looooove the photos we took during this time. I think you can really tell how in-the-moment Madison & Will felt.
Afterward, they hopped into a vintage 1967 Pontiac GTO and drove to the reception area.
Later, they stepped away from the reception for some sunset photos in front of the hills. I set them up in a pretty spot, gave them some direction, and let them run with it. After a few minutes, they were so lost in the moment that Madison turned around and said “Woah I forgot you were here!” Goal achieved. ✔️
After I got my tacos from the food truck, I sat down on a bench and looked around at everyone talking, dancing, kids running around, music playing. It was one of those moments when you look around and think “THIS is what weddings are all about.”
This was such a fun one! Congratulations Madison & Will!
Thank you to Jessica DeVoss for asking me to photograph this fun wedding! And thank you to Madison & Will for trusting me with their day!
