A few weeks ago I was the second shooter at a wedding. It was so strange meeting the bride for the first time at the event. With the relationship building I do prior to a shoot it’s more like meeting an old friend to share a special day with her when I show up to my booked weddings. The photographer I shot with is a great friend and it was such a fun experience. She is as passionate about photography as I am. We both enjoyed seeing how others work and there was almost no need to communicate what the other was doing. We just jelled together. She was also so sweet to bring me a sandwich, fresh fruit and cold water to snack on.
The bride and groom both asked their children to be their bridesmaids and groomsmen. After all, it was the children who got to know each other first bringing the two love birds together. Here are the boys.
They were both so happy.
I love coming up with different ways to photograph the rings at weddings. This time a simple hand holding them was perfection.
The large gathering of family and friends making their way from the chapel to the hall for the reception as they were reviewing the wedding ceremony, chatting and laughing.
I often get funny ideas by looking around at what is available. These masks just happened to be on a shelf in the girls dressing room. The bridesmaids giggled, decided which one they wanted and we got a fun shot. The youngest of the three pictured here is also interested in photography.
I think the grooms family is the most open to sharing emotion I have ever met. The groom had so many special teary moments with his brothers and sisters. This image is just one of the many we had the opportunity to capture.
Special thanks to my friend, Tammy, of Tammy Fisher Photography for asking me to be her special shooter at this wonderful wedding.
