Bridal Bouquet

Photographers have some hard and fast rules for wedding photography and it’s learned the hard way by looking at images that cannot be corrected. So, for all the future brides out there, you and your bridesmaids hold your flowers lower, they should be under your belly button more than above it. You want proof, here’s my elopement in Vegas holding my flowers too high. #film #vegas img072

Bad Ass Boutonnière

Non traditional boutonnière, dogwood leaf, ordered off of the interweb from
JohnMan 875

The wedding was in Banner Elk, NC, the groom wore a lighter navy blue suit from JCrew. He looked amazing. His boutonnière wins Best in Show. I have to look up boutonnière every time I want to type it, in fact the minute I search, bou, it’s the first word. I should win Best in Spelling.

Julia + Erik

Julia + Erik got married at Freedom Park in Charlotte, October 24, 2010. I was only a wedding photography year in, so I couldn’t fully enjoy the best thing about this wedding, because I didn’t realize it was the best thing yet! Hindsight is 20/20, right?

Julia and Erik were out in the crowd before they got married, they were saying hello and hugging everyone, yes.. two and half years later, it still brings tears to my eyes. It was really magical, the love in the air was electric. No other bride has done this, it was amazing to witness. And some people might poo poo the idea but walking down the aisle to get married is magical no matter, if you live together, you are already married, you just saw each other ten minutes ago.. it’s still butterflies and nerves!!

Here’s Julia’s Yelp review of her wedding…. awwww. Thanks Julia!!!

“Ready for girly omg-my-wedding-photographer-was-so-awesome gushiness? Yeah? Good, cos here we go.

First let me just say, I like Tonya. A lot. She’s hilarious, confident, cute, and extremely personable. Southern Belle-ish with a healthy dose of punkrawk. I also like Tonya’s photography a lot – it, too, is hilarious, colorful, poppy. She loves crooked angles, peeling sign paint, pirates, graffiti and bright colors, so her taste and mine align.

But it’s the Loooove and zeal she has for shooting that really makes her special. She gets into a zone and just goes and goes, gets the most cantakerous gramps to smile for el camara, cuts a lame joke to get a real smile (and it works! time after time!), all while showing up at every damn moment of your entire weekend, cute outfit on, camera in hand, smiling and hugging and buying you cocktails and telling you you’re gorgeous.

All for a reasonable price. Effing awesome.”

Sunny Days The Apple Barn Valle Crusis Wedding

sunny + bruce

“Tonya Russ Price at Poprock Photography is an event photographer with a fabulous eye and amazing talent. She does more non-traditional “documentary style” pictures, which is exactly what I wanted. She traveled about 2 hours to be at our event in the mountains (and to do engagement photos beforehand, which were a blast and turned out awesome). I can’t really put into words how happy I am with the beautiful record of our day. She did more than just take pictures; she captured the spirit of the event, the guests, and our love for each other. You won’t regret hiring her and I can pretty much guarantee you’ll enjoy having her around! She’s a lot of fun on top of it all! (She also charms family members … my aunts all fell in love with her and she good-naturedly put up with their nickname of “Smurfette.” She’s awesome all the way around!) Can’t recommend her enough!”
