I had the honor of shooting the wedding of two 'kids' that I have seen grow up over the last 6-ish years. They are in a band together and I've been able to take photos of the band and be fans of the band, all through them growing their relationship. The wedding was beautiful - more beautiful than any I can remember because of all of the cool details that made it their day. And then, God gave us a random snow/ice storm in the midst of two weeks where the temperatures hovered in the high 50's. When I say God gave them that storm, He absolutely did...it made the wedding even more amazing and an absolute dream to photograph.
This was one of my favorites because of the moment it was. Bride-to-be getting her hair and make-up done by two of her friends while her little sister peaks in. This all took place in both girl's older sister's house. Memories, memories, memories.
Is there anything more special than the moment when a bride and groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day? I do not shoot weddings often, but I am such a fan of the 'first look' because of the quiet moments (outside of my camera clicking) it gives them in what is usually a noisy day. Oh yeah, and when your couple is super cool and wears homemade ties and gold dresses, every photo looks amazing.
Again, weddings are not something I usually shoot, mainly because I don't feel creative enough to make the day look anything other than cookie cutter. This was my attempt to make a simple bridal party photo interesting. I love how it turned out.
The ceremony and reception were in the darkest of dark places. The beautiful string lights made the atmosphere so dim and intimate, but they did not give off nearly enough light for my comfort zone. I decided to test my camera for the ISO it boasts. Almost all of the ceremony photos were over ISO2000. Big step for a girl who likes to shoot at 400 or less.
The moment right after they walk out of the ceremony, right after they have been pronounced husband and wife. You can't script this stuff...
