– margaret and johann’s wedding

May 8th was a busy wedding day for us.  I was photographing Margaret and Johann’s wedding while Steve was photographing Julia and Matt’s.  Lucky for us, we weren’t very far apart – in fact, we were under the same roof but what a big roof the Gaylord Texan has. So big that our couples near saw one another which is the way it should be!There is so much that I loved about Margaret and Johann’s celebration and as I edited their photographs this week to create their initial album design, I was reminded of how special everything was.I loved the use of vibrant purple – I have been wanting to photograph a wedding where the groom has cool socks and Margaret’s gift to Johann definitely did this justice.I loved that Allison, the supreme flower girl  (hope I am spelling her name correctly) would correct me when I called anyone gentleman with in ear shot of her “handsome”.  She would say, “His name is handsome, it’s ______”.  And then to see her precision for laying the flowers down and the seriousness she took with her responsibilities – very impressive!I loved how Bill, Margaret’s dad took the time to publicly acknowledge Shanna Marko of The Organized Event, Tristin Jumper of the Gaylord Texan (who is currently on maternity leave with baby Grant who decided to arrive early before this wedding) and Jorge of the Gaylord Texan Catering Staff.  How very classy and how very well deserved.I loved how Ann, Margaret’s mom kicked up her heels as much as the guests.  And of course, we loved how royally they promoted the Carpe Vita Photography Out of the Box Photo Booth that we had there.  To see the photos from the booth, which can be downloaded simply by right clicking on any other photos, click here.  When I just checked on the link, I see that Steve left the photo of me with Johann and his mom in – I’m not sure that I like that…I loved getting to work with my sister Evah Goodwin – she has a great eye, keeps me on track and has lots of fun ideas. It was her, who took Johann and encouraged him to climb on the rocks for a special photograph – see, Tristin and The Gaylord Texan gods, it wasn’t me. This came after we had learned Johann really wanted to rappel in from the Gaylord atrium ceiling for his entrance so having this special photo adds even more Johann to the day. And as a photographer, I loved the extra time we were given to photograph Margaret and Johann after the reception was over.  They were tired and were good sports and in turn, I think we got some stunning ending photographs of their day. Let us know what you think.So please enjoy this first draft of how we saw the newest Mr. and Mrs. Dutton’s day.  If the slideshow of the album design is too wide for your monitor, click here and you will be taken to a website that shows everything appropriately.  We hope you love the albums (there are two volumes to make everything fit with the style and elegance of Margaret and Johann’s day) and please leave comments here or on the slideshow link sending your thoughts on the photos to the couple.This is just a sampling of the hundreds of photographs taken that day, if you would like to see all of the photography, please register by clicking here. In a few weeks, after Margaret and Johann have had a chance to view everything and do their own personal edits, they will release the event and you will be notified that the photographs are ready to be viewed.Best wishes,Kim
