A Brand New Blog

I have a brand new blog!


www.mattandrewsphoto.com

Thanks to everyone who has followed my posts over the years.  This photo-journal has featured nearly all of my weddings plus my portrait and commercial shoots from March 2008 - October 2010. I'm picking up where I left off on a new and more dynamic blog which will allow me to better show off my work.  I've been working more and more towards offering a hybrid of still and video coverage for my shoots and my new blog will feature both still and video.

My new blog will continue to serve as a session journal but it will also feature more useful content for anyone who may be planning a wedding.

Also, be sure to check out the Matt Andrews Photography Facebook page.

Regards,
-Matt

Wedding Photography for Whit and Jessica at Houston Station in Nashville


Whit and Jessica made a very handsome couple.  They were married on October 30, 2010 at Houston Station in Nashville.  To be precise, they were married just behind Houston Station near the railroad tracks.  The ceremony wasn't interrupted by a train but it was a beautiful and unique ceremony with downtown Nashville in the distance and a rock a billy band complete with upright base playing beside the tracks!  The staff at Houston Station was wonderful to work with and were very gracious to me even after I accidentally set off the smoke alarm with too much fog on the photobooth.  It was a fun reception with lots of dancing and everyone had a blast.

Tracy and Ben - Mt. Pleasant Tennessee Wedding

Its been nearly 3 months since Tracy and Ben tied the knot on October 23, 2010 but I've promised myself that I'd get a blog entry up for all 40 of my 2010 weddings.  I was doing great up until my 8 wedding October but now that I'm hitting the slow season, I'm going to add an entry for the last 10 weddings of the year.

The weather was nearly perfect on October 23rd so I was excited that we were going to get to shoot on a nearby farm for the pre-ceremony formals of the wedding party.  There was a nice veil lifting breeze and some of my favorite shots of the day were the silhouette shots with the sun shining through the haze. The wedding party ate their lunches around a swimming pool before making their way back to the church where some nice local police officers were keeping the church lot clear since there was a festival in downtown Mt. Pleasant that day.  This was a very simple church and I thought it made for some great ceremony photos but I'll post one of the shots of the groom seeing the bride for the first time so you can see the empty church.

We set up a lime green photobooth at the reception and after the children got some of the first photos they dragged their parent's back for more photos.

Ben is a race-car driver so the elaborate dirt track groom's cake was appropriate.

Wedding at St. Mary's in Downtown Nashville with a Hilton Garden Inn Reception

Courtney and Wesley began and ended their wedding day at the Hilton Garden Inn located in the Midtown Area of Nashville on October 16th.  They began getting ready at the hotel and then the groomsmen and bridesmaids took turns heading downtown to St. Mary's for photos before the ceremony.  St. Mary's is a beautiful and historic church in Nashville.  It served as the first Catholic Cathedral in Nashville and during the Civil War it was converted into a hospital for Union soldiers.



After the ceremony the wedding party headed a block away to War Memorial Plaza where the bride and groom along with several of the bridesmaids actually risked damaging their dresses before the reception in order to get some fun shots in the fountains!  I was really excited about these shots!

The reception at the Hilton Garden Inn was beautiful and there was a really nice view from the balcony where we were able to get a few more bride and groom portraits at dusk.

Following is a link to the proof site where the rest of the photos may be viewed and ordered.
