Best of 2011 :: Photography

by in Inspirations, Main on

Featuring excellent photography has always been one of our highest priorities at Southern Weddings, and we are so honored to have featured so many wonderful photographers this past year. They effortlessly capture the day’s emotion as beautifully as its details, and in doing so give us all a peek into so many special wedding days. Here are just a few of the favorite moments we had the privilege of sharing this year.

The last few minutes before the ceremony, captured by Studio A (originally seen here)

A stunning portrait by Joel Flory (originally seen here)

    Ulmer Studios photo taken of Jamie and Dan’s farewell at Historic Cedarwood is PURE JOY in a black and white. We feel magic every time we look at this image. So glad Southern Weddings included it in their best of 2011 photos.
