A couple of chance encounters (if you believe in that sort of thing) with Charleston based photographer Roger Kirby, led to an brief chat with the ladies of Savannah Grand Weddings and ultimately the creation of this Savannah Wedding Video for LaTonya & Shawn. Roger was already photographing the wedding, but they didn’t have anyone for video (it still amazes me that we’re not higher up on the wedding food chain, but I’m doing what I can to change that!) Since I’m relatively new to the Savannah area (and since I need a pretty good reason to leave Tybee), I didn’t know quite what to expect when I was told that the wedding was going to take place at Jepson Center. A gorgeous couple and an amazing venue make for a happy video guy.
The wedding was very cool, and included the traditional “jumping the broom,” which I had only seen in movies up until Saturday. Directly after the ceremony, the entire wedding party climbed aboard a trolley and headed off to Forsyth Park (it just keeps getting better… the fountain & the earlier horse drawn carriage provided details of a true Savannah Wedding Video) Got some great detail shots of the fountain as well as some creative close ups as Roger snapped away.
As the sun went down, we headed back to the Jepson for the reception, with dancing, food and family. Toast’s were made, cake was eaten and a bouquet was thrown. Congratulations to LaTonya & Shawn and thanks to Roger for providing the opportunity to be a part of this great day.
