Union on 8th wedding | Val + Max
Max + Val’s Union on 8th wedding was so much fun. This fun outgoing couple from New Orleans wanted their wedding day to be centered around family + friends. They each got ready at quirky inns near the venue before heading over to their Georgetown wedding ceremony. Both exchanged personal gifts before the ceremony. Max gifted Val a handmade book of all the special moments they had shared. I loved photographing Val receive this gift. Her vulnerability was so beautiful to watch. One of the most important things you can do is allow yourself to feel everything on your wedding day. Be open + trusting + vulnerable. You’ll get the best wedding photos this way.
The indoor wedding ceremony was both funny + tender. Val’s contagious laughter filled the room. It was a wedding photojournalist’s dream. There were so many wonderful moments to photograph. I’m always so honored to witness such moments.
There were tons of personal details wedding details like the bourbon bar, the late night snack with the P. Terry’s food truck. My favorite detail was the artist drawn table markers. The guest tables were all named after the street names of their childhood homes. Heather with Vintage & Lace did an amazing job of bringing it all together. It was the perfect end to the Spring wedding season. Thank you so much to Val + Max for having me along.
