Sokoloski Wedding

A few weeks ago now I had the fun experience of capturing Scott and Trina's big day! I met them last year as a result of them getting my name from the Bridal and Beyond bridal show here in Knoxville. We hit it off during the consultation and I was intrigued when they told me their venue - the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Having never shot a wedding there before, I guess you could say I was pretty excited about it. I mean, it takes a pretty awesome couple to decide they're going to say their vows in such a unique setting! They let me know that they wanted to take lots of funny photos and really enjoy everything the space has to offer. Those are the sorts of things this photographer loves to hear from clients!

So, in the months between our first consultation and the wedding day, we corresponded fairly regularly (I'll be posting more about my process at a later time). We got the schedule pinned down, discussed what images were a priority, and all the other wonderful details that go into planning a wedding. Needless to say, my second shooter and I were looking forward to this particular job.

Now, we have been having what I like to call "whiplash weather" lately, which meant we weren't sure if we would be able to take any pictures outside or if it would be too insanely cold to be outdoors. It turned into the most gorgeous day! We had blue skies, warm weather, and even ended up with more sunlight than we needed. It poured in through the enormous windows resulting in some lovely indoor light for the bridal portraits, first look, and ceremony. I was one happy photographer!

Here is a tiny slideshow from their wedding:

I have to say this may have been one of the smoothest wedding days I have ever covered. Everyone involved knew where to be and when, which is rare in the world of weddings. They were all goofballs and easy-going as it gets. There were even a few instances of things happening earlier than planned! It was great!

Well, I'd better get to planning the next wedding I'm covering! If you or anyone you know is looking for a wedding photographer, please don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to meet and discuss your big day.
