Anusha and Barath – The Wedding – Chennai, India

schmidtphoto Wedding Photography, Weddings 0 Comments

Welcome to Chennai, India, another world on the same earth.  Tom and Priscilla had the amazing opportunity to join their friends Anusha and Barath for their wedding about 12,000 miles from Chicago (give or take a few depending on your route) and of course Tom shot a few pictures.  We dressed in our authentic Indian wear and jumped right in for a vividly colorful day loaded with deep traditions.

The third and last day of Anusha and Barath’s wedding pictured here, began with the couple on a large wooden swing near the entrance to the wedding hall.  They greeted their guests and had photos taken to kick off the celebration.  This was followed by the more formal ceremonies on the stage with the priests and family.  For this stage, the couple performs many rituals, repeats mantras, makes offerings and after a few hours becomes fully married!  Throughout the ceremony, the band plays loud and lively rhythmic music that stir excitement in the crowd.  Check out the short video for quick taste of sounds!

Thanks Anusha and Barath for sharing your special day with us.  It was an unforgettable experience!

Tom and Priscilla – My Wedding – Tom got Married!!!

schmidtphoto Wedding Photography, Weddings 0 Comments

Introducing the newest member of Schmidt family- Priscilla! We took the plunge (insert ball and chain jokes, etc.) and got married on October 3 in Warrensburg, Missouri. We had quite possibly the smallest wedding I’ve ever seen, but we are still married all the same! We were joined by my family, my brother Tyler’s girlfriend Molly, a minister and a cellist on the warm and sunny fall day. Everybody with the last name of Schmidt contributed to the set of pictures you see here… Molly, Mom and Priscilla did an awesome job on our flowers and cake. After our tiny ceremony, we zoomed up to KC for a quick portrait session near Liberty Memorial and a steak dinner at Pierpont’s in Union Station.

A special thanks to everyone who helped to make our day a beautiful one!

Lea and Jim – The Wedding – Hawthorne House

schmidtphoto Wedding Photography, Weddings 0 Comments

Lea and Jim are some of our favorite people on the planet and we had an amazing wedding day with them at the Hawethorne House.  Lea and Jim are super in love and their lively personalities gave us a million moments to capture.  We had a wonderful fall day in Kansas City with some warm sun a cool breeze, PERFECT!  This wedding was also special for us because Lea was one of the very first Senior Portrait Shoot clients way back when TS Photography began, way back…  And then she went on be a great assistant for hundreds of senior shoots and tons of weddings.  She knows my silly jokes (some call them dad jokes, although I am not a dad yet…) as good as anyone could!  I still had to whip out the dancing shoes a few times just for old times sake.  Check out Lea and Jim’s beautiful wedding day pictures by Schmidt Weddings:
