This is the latest video we've added to the website of Aliya Altafullah, moments before she was married. Nothing is more beautiful than capturing an Indian bride getting ready for the ceremony, and I hope by watching this video you agree. Aliya was a beautiful bride and we had so much fun shooting her and Justin's wedding day. I hope you enjoy!

I am very excited to announce the launch of our new and improved website! It's taken a long time and that is the main reason why I've not been posting on the blog...but the new website now has large galleries, and the newest section is our "Client Details" which lists all the specifics about Jason Lanier Photography. I hope you enjoy...let me know what you think!

I am very excited to release the slideshow of the wedding story for Mike and Melodie Thompson shot in Sydney, Australia last month! I have shot so many weddings and I truly love each and every one of them. This wedding is definitely one of my all time favorites and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to share this day with this wonderful couple. One of the reasons I loved this wedding so much was because the family was just so welcoming and honestly wonderful. We also had the opportunity to do extended shooting after the wedding which you will see in the slideshow.
I love preparing and sharing slideshows because I think from a photographic standpoint it is the closest thing to attending the wedding...especially if you weren't able to attend. With all the destination weddings I do there is almost a certainty that someone from the family or a friend can't make it....and that's why couples hire me....so I can take their most special day and preserve it in a way that anyone across the globe can feel and share. I hope you enjoy!!!

We had an amazing rainstorm during the end of the Reception...and just as the Reception ended....so did the rainstorm. I took Melanie and Mike outside because the scenery was straight out of a movie. So much about photography is taking advantage of what is available to you...and that was definitely the case with these shots. When you get dark rain clouds fighting with a fierce sun...you can get shots that are fantastic. Another big thanks to the bride and groom for being willing to get out there to make these shots happen!!!

This shot was taken from a window of the reception hall where the wedding took place during the reception. A huge rainstorm came in and started pouring water all over the area. As is the case in Australia the rain comes and can quickly go...so I waited for it to stop to grab this picture. As soon as the sun started coming through the clouds I snapped this shot.
