Here comes the third wedding in a row with two “Bobbi Brides” 😀
When Angela inquired with us a little over a year ago and said her wedding would be in Memphis, I couldn’t have been more excited! After all, I’d never photographed a wedding in Memphis before!*
*Is it OK now to end my sentences in prepositions? Has that rule officially been eradicated from the grammar gods?
Lately Megan has been shooting the groomsmen portraits without me while I’m still photographing the tail end of the bride getting ready; and she’s been nailing it!
…while Megan was shooting the photo above, I was taking the photo below. It also happens to be one of my favorite images from the day. That little dusting of light across her face… YES YES YES!
I often show off more of the unique wedding party photos we take on this blog, but please know that I also always shoot classic / timeless photos. Soapbox time (you’ve been warned): I feel that images like this are important for the longevity of your wedding. It’s likely that your mom has a photo just like this with her bridesmaids, the difference is that they’re likely wearing hats, pastels with poofy sleeves and big hair. 😉 Another few examples of this: a photo of the bride and groom with their champagne flutes standing next to their cake and looking at the camera. Or, if the wedding is in a formal church and the bride has a train, I’ll take the classic photo of the bride holding her bouquet on the top of the stairs with her train trailing down the stairs, it only takes two minutes so why not?! Literally 100% of the time if the bride’s mother and grandmother’s are in the sanctuary when I take it they gasp or tear up at the beauty (here’s a photo that just came to mind that I shot last year of this exact moment, Megan took the one on the right while I sneakily shot the one on the left) because again, those moms and grandmas likely have the exact same photos in their wedding albums. When I sometimes visit the parents of the bride after the wedding I often see that bridal photo hanging in the hallway right next to theirs. Sometimes it’s not all about us (if that makes sense). Oh, and for the record I will always try to shoot that classic full length bridal portrait even if there isn’t a formal church.
Megan’s view. All 5’2″ of me was standing perrrrfectly behind the pastor so you can’t see me. 😉 Well done Megan!

I loved everything about this family!
<Editing to add> I just found their resulting selfie on Facebook.
I busted out my best Southern wedding skills for this one folks!
You two sure are a beautiful duo.

Come to find out, Kenny is not only a brain surgeon (no, really… he is), he’s also a drummer. Ummm, what CAN’T you do?!
behind the scenes
Because men usually start getting ready later than the ladies, Megan will often start with me at the bride’s home or hotel room to shoot the morning’s details (rings, shoes, dress, etc.) before heading over to photograph the men.
That’s a lot of red hair in one photo!
Doing what I do!
#bobbibrides! I photographed Sarah’s wedding in April 2018 with my incredibly talented best friend Ben (it was the only wedding MegMoney missed while on maternity leave).
Much love friends!
Awesome pictures, Bobbi. Thanks so much.
