Hottest Wedding Ever
This last weekend I was given the opportunity to catch up with an old college friend. Not to mention photograph her wedding! It was a super hot day, beginning with rainstorms, but by the end I’m sure everyone had a great time and was glad to have the weight lifted off their shoulders. Not to mention the couple was one day closer to their honeymoon in the Bahamas!
I still remember meeting Claire that first week of college, in 2004. We both had iBook’s (remember laptops with 30gb harddrives?) and she tried to help me out by sharing a couple programs I didn’t have. Time went by and one day last fall I got a message asking if I’d be interested in photographing her wedding. I called her from B&H Photo (just so happened I was on a roadtrip and in NYC at the time) and we set it up. By the time I got to the church in Neilsville, WI, we hadn’t seen each other for two years.
I had a great time meeting her family and taking photos as the bride to be and bridesmaids got their makeup on and played with the kids. We got the girls done so that when the guys arrived Claire could stay hidden…keeping that big surprise for Greg when she walked down the aisle! Then Greg came along with his entourage and we finished up most of the formals in time to grab some of the details and the crowd as they arrived to support their friends and family in marriage.
The service was great, relatively short and sweet with a full female chorus! Soon enough the new couple walked back down the aisle and greeted all their guests. We grabbed the last of family shots and took off outside for a few pictures before we got eaten by bugs and sweat our butts off! One word to the wise for anyone wanting to try and take pictures of this couple as they grow and raise a family. GOOD-LUCK!!! They’re so in tune with each other you absolutely can’t get them to sit still or hold a straight face. Just too busy goofing around with each other and making funny faces.
I had a great time and I hope everyone else did as well. These are just a few of the photos, a little taste of what they’ll be getting as I finish up the editing and putting together their wedding album. Congratulations guys!
