Lindsay & Parker: perfect weather, perfect wedding, perfect couple

Surprising though it may seem, despite the fact that I live in Columbia, Mo., I have not had a wedding take place within the CoMo boundaries until this past weekend. Crazy, eh? I couldn’t have asked for a better couple than Lindsay & Parker to be my first hometown wedding.

If you can judge a bride by whom she chooses for her maid/matron of honor, then I knew Lindsay was going to be a fun, sweet bride with a head on her shoulders and a solid idea of what she was envisioning for her day. I say this because I was not found by Lindsay herself, but her ever-so-helpful wedding-planning MOH, Alaina. THANK YOU, Alaina… 😉

And now, on to the wedding.

My second shooter for the event was the trusted Ashley Clarke.
The weather could NOT have been any more perfect. Seriously. Check out the blue skies…it was in the upper 60s/lower 70s all day… sooooo flipping perfect. The crew got ready where the ceremony was to take place…at the First Christian Church in downtown Columbia.

Lindsay was quite proud of her killer shoes. So elegant…and glamorous.

The wonderful bouquets were put together by Lindsay’s sister, Haley.

It’s really hard to photograph a subject when the walls are mirrors…and not be seen…so this one..Sorry, Lindsay…I’m right there with you…but you’re in the limelight, you lovely thing!

Lindsay and Parker opted to see each other before the ceremony…which enabled us to do SOOOO many more fun pictures of the group and just the lovebirds. But before all that, we did a “first glance”…

This man witnessed the entire day…he didn’t budge from his perch…and actually, he’s there every day in the spring…

Tell me her father isn’t the most mysterious and alluring figure here…but he can be tender, too..as seen moments before he walked his daughter down the aisle.

I love this next image because the two ushers are her brothers…so the other three important men in her life are there when she enters the next chapter.

Some friends threw down petals as they walked back down the aisle, this time as husband and wife!

The reception took place at Alpine Gardens… a glorious venue…so natural, earthy and verdant this time of year.
Ashley caught one of my favorite images of the day.

  • Jody - Ohh my gosh Darbi I am blown aWay! I happened upon your blog looking for inspiration in my quest to become a wedding photojournalist! Your style is just incredible. I was ooohing and ahhing at every photo! I wondered if you would share what lens you love using the most with your work.
    I also use Canon =)ReplyCancel

  • Darbi G. Photography - Jody,
    Thank you sooo much for such kind words!!
    In answer to your lens question…

    I’d say the three most-used lenses are the f/2.8 16-35… for scene-setting shots and some all-purpose coverage…the 50 1.2 is a gem for low lighting and portraits.
    And then I do put on the 70-200 for ceremonies. It’s so heavy, so I don’t typically use it a bunch unless needed.

    This info is also on:
