Holy guacamole, you guys. I know I say this a lot – maybe I’m starting to sound like a broken record (sorry) – but I LOVED THIS SHOOT. Sometimes I can’t even believe that this job is mine. I get to create. I get to create SO MUCH! For so many people!! PINCH ME. And this Goodwin Manor wedding shoot was absolutely no exception. We had a gorgeous couple, a gorgeous venue, and some truly incredible vendors come together to create some serious magic. Heather (the planner) is obviously just stupid talented at this whole wedding planning thing, right!?
I’m a part of a pretty exclusive group of Northwest Arkansas Wedding Photographers (we set the membership bar high by requiring that everybody who joins is a legit, taxpaying business) and a few friends from that group and I rode to Goodwin Manor together in my trusty red Fiat. We all thought the day would be much warmer, but as is no surprise for Arkansas, the weather forecast just wasn’t quite right. We ended up freezing our butts off! Ha! But these results: worth it, 100%. After the shoot we all got to go to dinner (and I cannot even BELIEVE we didn’t take a group picture at the restaurant) and now we know that when you put 6 female Arkansas wedding photographers at a round corner booth, they will talk non-stop about everything under the sun for 2 hours (much to the chagrin of our server….oops). It’s so nice to be gathered with so many like-minded people!!
All in all, it was a fantastic day of traveling and shooting. We drove 8 hours and shot for 2 1/2 hours, and every single moment was full of creative energy and such artistic talent. It’s insane how much talent we have here in Arkansas. And I’m blessed to be a part of it!
Now check out my favorites from this gorgeous shoot! And make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom and visit the talented vendors pages!
