rainbow wall, Morris avenue, wedding couple

April. & Justin is one of the most and beautiful, sincere, fun-loving couples I've had the pleasure of shooting this year!

I met the duo last spring via zoom! (gotta love Covid!)

Our first in-person encounter, was as calm, and cool as our virtual one, on THEIR WEDDING DAY!

I've never seen a bride so in the moment, but calm as Apryl!

Despite the chill and threats of rain in the forecast, the couple tied the knot outdoors at Hoover's Aldridge Botanical Gardens.

The birds were chirping, the air was fresh, and the couple was very easy going!

When the ceremony ended, the couple was ready to turn up with their friends...but not before I took a swing at them!
