There is so much I love about Jackie and Derek's wedding day. However, as I have been processing their photos, I just love how classic their wedding looks and just how many great moments were captured. A lot of wedding photography we see these days is pretty stylized and posed to give it a more editorial look. I totally do this as well, but I love to take the photojournalism approach to document the day as well - catching expression and moments that will create images that maybe aren't technically perfect, but carry an essence and energy about them. This couple's wedding took place at the Kitchi Gammi Club in Duluth, Minnesota, where the bride's family has some deep roots. The setting alone is pretty timeless and it provided the perfect backdrop for this event! Jackie was a stunning bride and I love that the guys wore classic black tie suits! I chose to show some of my favorite moments from Jackie and Derek's wedding in this post, it was truly such an awesome day!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Peterson!
