Katie and Donavon said I Do on a beautiful June day, with clear sunny skies and perfect temps. They are really sweet together, and had so many dear friends and family around them, that you could definitely fee how much love there was for these two.
Many times, I’m asked to photograph weddings in churches that are more restrictive on photography and videography during the worship service. This is generally in Presbyterian and Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican traditions. Which I am great with! I love giving my couples a lot of personal space during their wedding day, especially the service. I am always reminding myself and my team that this day is a joining together of two souls, and there are times when a camera can be disruptive to those moments. With Katie and Donovan, the wed at the gorgeous Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill, SC (really, really lovely old church) and this was the case there. My team and I made sure we stayed well within our boundaries while capturing beautiful moments for this sweet couple.
Also, going to give a HUGE shout out here to FlashBack the Party Band. They brought it! Guys, seriously! They jumped in the crowd, sang with kids, started a conga line, and created to many great memories for this wedding that honestly, the guests were sad to see them go. So if you’re considering a band and not a DJ, these folks are a great option!
Congratulations to Katie and Donovan! It was a joy to be the ones to document your day in photos and video. May your marriage be a blessing to others and edifying to the Lord! See more on Instagram @amandamcquadephotography
