Google+ Life as a Newlywed, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

What else goes along with being a newlywed?  Sometimes it means buying a new home (and popping bubbly in said new home), sometimes it means hanging out on the roof of your new home, and sometimes it means scooting around town on a Vespa.  Or, at least, that’s what it means to these newlyweds!  Big thanks to Lauren Larsen for sending us these images and to Heather DeStena for helping with the styling + direction!  Now tell me, those of you who are already married: if a photographer were to capture some aspect of your newlywed life, what would you want it to be?  Though I’m not married, I think a kitchen/baking/cooking scene would be lots of fun…

    I've been wanting to do a shoot at our house… with our doggies. We are such homebodies! I'd love to have shots of us walking our dogs, and doing chores- like laundry and dishes…. because that's real life :-)

    ….. also….. we are going to be building a beach house in the next few years, the day we get the keys, and go in it as homeowners for the first time- I want that captured…. maybe have someone there to photograph closing :-)

    In love with these! That shot of him swinging her in the air in their room is awesome. What a cute house too!

    Love it. My husband and I had a long-distance engagement and never had the chance for a casual shoot before the wedding, so this really resonates. Would be a blast to capture us road-tripping. We've started a Sunday Drive tradition: we take turns choosing a direction (east or west today?) and take off out of Nashville for a few hours. We've ended up at antique stores, wineries, state parks, school playgrounds. I'd love to have photos of our laidback fun!
