Kerrie & Justin were married at the amazing Cajun Lake Lodge wedding venue in Burns, TN.

Wedding Rehearsal

I go to every wedding rehearsal to get to know the wedding party and go over in last minute details.  The venue is in Burns, TN and is easy to miss the sign if you have never been there before. It was the perfect wedding venue for Kerrie & Justin. Cajun Lake Lodge has a lot of land for pictures. They have two lakes and two cabins on the property. During the rehearsal a practiced getting the kiss shot from behind them showing the guests in the background. I knew this was going to be difficult because their wedding ceremony is super short.

 

Wedding Day

I started their wedding photography at 11 AM. I always start by taking detail photos of the rings, dress, and anything they feel important. A bridesmaid brought a newspaper so we can take a photo of the rings with the wedding date which turned out neat. The guys were a little late to their getting ready location but we were able to take a few photos of them getting ready before heading back to the girls. Th bridesmaids were very easy to work with and was up for anything. I took s few wedding photos of them by a pool table right before the ceremony that I really like.

The ceremony was outside in the front of Cajun Lake Lodge. It was a beautiful setting and the weather was perfect. We had two photographers at their wedding so we made a ceremony game plan so we will make sure not miss any photos. During the ceremony I like to jump around get as many different shots for their wedding album as possible. Usually I have plenty of time to do this before the kiss. This time I was completely caught off guard and hard to dart for the shot. I was able to take two shots of the kiss. I am glad Jonathan (2nd photographer) was there to capture a shot form the front in case I missed my shot.

 

Ceremony

After the ceremony we went straight in to the bride and groom formal photos. There was so many great places to take photos at Cajun Lake Lodge. I only had enough time to hit a few spots before getting the bride and groom to the reception. We took a few photos they wanted to try and I put my spin on those. I enjoy when the couple as excited about their wedding photos.

 

Reception

The wedding reception was very very fun. It was an all night party. The DJ (Called the DJ Dude) kept the guest entertained and laughing. He even had some costumes that he would put on for certain songs and dance with the crowd. It was fun taking photos of the crowds reaction. I am sure they loved going through all the wedding reception photos I took. After the reception Kerrie and Justin had a sparkler formal exit.

Here are a few wedding photos of their big day!
