The Deep South @ Southport

Each wedding is a story and sometimes that story has a particular colour, sound, or feeling associated with it. Deep blue skies and a high, piercing sun made Maria & Vic's Southport wedding especially challenging to photograph and when I started to look over the photos, I got a sense of the Deep South... perhaps Tennessee.

Maybe it was the upper balcony at Eighty Eight Bar and Brasserie (reception) that reminded me of a meal in Mississippi many years ago? Perhaps a single photo of a 'gator' skin shoe and a table swung my mind in this direction?

Nonetheless, when editing the photographs, I could not shake off thoughts of Sally Mann and her warm, rich evocative 8x10" images of America's south. This shaped my editing of Maria & Vic's special day, which tells such a clear story of love, warmth and intimacy from start to finish.
