There are so many reasons that we love Coleman’s work. Whether it’s the tangible connection he creates in his pictures to the couples and their weddings, or the vintage finishes that give his photos added élan, Coleman’s work is always delightful and compelling.
Today, Coleman shares with us the wedding of Zeb and Abby at Springhouse Gardens in Joplin, MO.
Take first the couple, Zeb and Abby. As Coleman characterizes them, “This couple was real. Real with their love for each other, real with their desire to share their day with me and my wife as if we were long-time friends.” Take note of the playful L-O-V-E shot that has Coleman’s artful texturing.
Next, notice the breathtaking Springhouse Gardens location and add silver-lining weather. Coleman relays that the day was stormy until just before the wedding was about to begin and then, “the clouds broke and blue skies lit up the tree side ceremony. The final touch for the photos was when the rainbow appeared over the tree line.”
And don’t forget the DIY elements, like the flower bulb planting and rustic flourishes throughout, which added sweetness and character to both the day as a whole as well as the pictures. Coleman remarks that in addition to the thoughtful and decorative details, the “lighting was as perfect as it could be and that made for some fun captures.”
Between the charm of the day, and the first-rate images by David Coleman, we’d say Zeb and Abby’s event definitely gives inspiration for how picturesque and romantic a garden wedding can be.
