Blackman Wedding | Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Hi Friends,

Jordan and Adam had the perfect day.  They were married the day before Valentine’s day in Alma, Ar at Beyond Church.   Janie and I have had so much fun getting to know this great couple.  They absolutely rocked their engagement session and you just knew they were in love.   Janie and I had the challenge of finding the perfect locations for a First Look and Wedding Portraits.  I lived in Alma, Arkansas for half my life so i had a few hidden spots right off of Hwy 71 North where the Church is located.  For the First Look it was cold and we decided on something close to the church.   There’s not a lot to play with on a Saturday in February at noon.  However, we found a nice spot with some shade, golden light bouncing off the ground and the greens from the pine tree’s made a gorgeous bokeh background.  We decided to end our day with the Wedding Portraits.  It was around 2:45 in the afternoon and this is when we used some of those secret locations i knew about from growing up in Alma.  I hope you love looking over our favorites from Jordan and Adam’s special day.  Janie and I would be honored to be your photographers.  Shoot us an email anytime.
