Maggie and Stephen
Today we feature the wedding of Maggie and Stephen captured by Kentucky based (near Lexington) Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter.
Maggie and Stephen are one of the more fun couples I’ve photographed this year. You can tell how much they love each other, and how much fun they always have. Stephen is naturally like the class clown, and I was laughing throughout the whole reception watching him dance with Maggie and their friends. Maggie is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and made sure everyone had everything they needed the day of.
It was supposed to rain the whole day, but we got very lucky. The whole day was so laid back and fun. Everyone just genuinely enjoyed one another’s company. There was no drama and for the most part everything went smoothly. The ceremony was one of the quickest and greatest one’s I’ve photographed. Maggie’s brother was the officiant and he really personalized it and made it his own. He even brought out a stool for it so he could be taller than Stephen. The reception was also amazing. There was a great DJ who kept the party going for hours. They also didn’t have a cake, and opted out of most of the traditional things (no bouquet/garter toss, cake cutting, etc) and just had donuts for after dinner.
About the Photographer
I’m a Kentucky based photographer who specializes in couples and weddings. I love to travel and see new things, and will hopefully get to do more of that in 2016. I have two dogs, Fry and Zapp, who keep me company while I wok. I also love to try and grow flowers, but haven’t been all that successful yet. I collect vintage cameras and all types of globes and little knick knacks, and I love to read when I have time.
My photography style is moody and editorial with some photojournalism thrown in.
What did you love about the day?
I loved how laid back Maggie and Stephen’s wedding day was. No drama whatsoever. I also loved how they personalized everything and made it their own.
I would tell couples that are newly engaged/newly planning to get as much as you can do as soon as possible. You don’t want to spend the whole engagement stressing out about planning. I’d also tell them to opt to do an engagement session so that they have photos of them looking normal to hang on their wall, and it also gives them the opportunity to bond with their photographer.
