Blog: Andrew & Megan | Savannah Wedding

Savannah Wedding Photographer

I love blogging on the weddings I shoot because it’s writing about love and family.  Every wedding has a couple getting married.  Every wedding has guests and family attending.  Every wedding has a ceremony and reception.  You’d think that after shooting well over 150 weddings, I could shoot in my sleep and not get all that excited about the wedding day.  Not so!  It’s quite the opposite.  I compare it to when I use to sing in front of hundreds and sometimes thousands of people at a time.  I may have performed 20 times in a given year, practiced everyday, had dress rehearsals, got new outfits to wear but when it was time for the curtain to open and a new audience was in front of me, there was always a rush of adrenalin.  No audience was ever the same.  No song was ever sung the exact same way (everybody that knows me knows I like to adlib and sing with my own flare).  That’s how I shoot.  Each couple is their own, every guest list has someone that “hams” it up for the photographer. There is never a dull moment.

On January 28, I had the privilege of shooting Andrew and Megan’s wedding downtown Savannah, Georgia at the Embassy Suites.  The wedding didn’t start until after dark so I new I had to bring out the “creative wand” and make these indoor shots look just as beautiful as outdoors.  I also was aware that Megan’s grandmother had passed away the week before and I needed to be sensitive to the family’s needs.  After the ceremony,  we drove a few blocks down to the Knights of Columbus where the reception took place.  I loved the historical structure of the building and also loved that they had a “live” band.  The Vista’s was a band  out of Charleston, South Carolina and could play just about anything you requested (I wanted so bad to grab that mike and sing a Whitney Houston song but it helped that I had my camera glued to my hands.)

Their Story

Andrew and Megan met on November 30, 2012 at Murphy’s Law Pub.  A very cliché moment happened when Andrew saw Megan walked up to her and told her he had to meet her.  Fast forward 3 years;  Andrew and Megan found themselves standing in Telfair Square on January 27, 2016.  Andrew was on one knee and a ring in his hand.
