Natalie and Nick booked us way in advance of their wedding day so we had extra time to get to know them and their story. They’re about as sweet, thankful and laid back as you can get. They got married at Trinity Tree Farm (it has a real Christmas tree farm!) which is one of my favorite wedding venues to film. I had the privilege of filming this “Southern Charm” styled shoot at Trinity Tree Farm earlier in the year so I was excited to be back there in the summertime.
Natalie had this really compelling vision of walking through the thick pine trees hand in hand with Nick, and these were some of my favorite shots we got. Of course everything works better when the couple is so happy to be together and enjoying the wedding day. My favorite thing about this venue is how it transforms as the sun goes down. The day started with guests having drinks from the lemonade stand (side note: this is a really cool idea) and as it got darker and the party lights came on, this turned into a full blown summer night lawn party with campfires, lawn games and a perfect view.
I was really happy I got to work with our friend and frequent collaborator Kyle Goldie at Luma Weddings at this wedding. He’s such an easy guy to be around and has a knack for posing couples in a natural, comfortable way. For the non-fashion model couples out there (I haven’t actually met one of those yet, come to think of it) I know that it’s really important to have a photographer and videographer you can trust who make you feel comfortable and let you just be you while also getting some amazing, intimate shots. Here’s his post from Natalie and Nick’s wedding.
It was definitely a lot of fun getting to wander through the Christmas trees with these two. Such a beautiful day.
