If you're just joining us today, we're featuring the gorgeous wedding of Kate and Wes, sent to us by the ultra-talented team at A Bryan Photo.

Kate and Wes were married in November in Birmingham at Mountain Brook Community Church. If you haven't already seen the first post {click here}. Kate is an absolutely stunning bride.

Now, we're continuing with the breathtaking reception at Kate's father's home in Mountain Brook. She had always had a fond appreciation for her dad's house and wanted to create more memories in a place she treasured. According to Bryan, "The day had many fabulous touches, but most of all it was a true party that went long into the night!"

Photographers are constantly challenged to be right there ... in the thick of it ... without being intrusive or invasive. They must be everywhere, with everyone and try to see and capture everything.  That's a pretty tall order. We read something very profound on Bryan's website that we want you to think about.

"...we will be near, moving with your emotions, walking the thin line of spontaneity."

"Walking the thin line of spontaneity." That is what separates a good photographer from a great photographer. The A Bryan Photo team concentrates on being there for the spontaneous moments that fill your day!

Bryan Johnson's studio is located in Birmingham Alabama, but he and his team travel widely. For more evidence of their fantastic work, take a look at their website and blog. This is a link to more images from Kate & Wes' wedding. Thanks, guys for another great feature ... and a huge congratulations to Wes and Kate!
