Melissa + Jon | Married! – Flood Mansion Wedding

We spent our 4th of July shooting Melissa and Jon’s fantastic wedding at the Flood Mansion. We are actually friends with Melissa and Jon, and with many of the people in/at the wedding, so it was fun shooting with people you know around, although you have to fight the urge to start dancing even more than usual! πŸ™‚

They put together a beautiful wedding and had a total “Classic Hollywood” feel to the day. I really wanted the images to have that same sort of feel. I say Mission Accomplished! πŸ™‚

I was such a Happy Photographer when I saw the long gloves, birdcage veil, and bright red lipstick!

That bright red lipstick can be messy!

Luckily Jon came prepared! πŸ™‚

The Ladies:

The Gentlemen: OK you might be wondering why there is a lobster in with the headshots. No, I have not lost it, it is a stand in for one of the groomsmen who couldn’t be there the day of. Hi Josh! I think he had a better time than anyone when it came time to dance. He certainly was popular. πŸ™‚

I absolutely adore the portraits from this wedding. Some of my all time favs:


Thanks Melissa and Jon for sharing your day with us, and Congrats!!!
