As a follow-up to my previous post
for the wedding of Marian & Antwan I wanted to put together an album layout from the images captured as a second shooter. It doesn't give you the entire flow since my role is to help the primary shooter get what he needs. There were however, a few opportunities for me to capture images and what I'm posting here is a result of those moments. I picked out a few of my favorites to give you a sense of how I experienced the event from start to end.
I arrived in the morning with the task of shooting the groom getting ready. Uh, didn't work out exactly because they were already ready! Hmm...go with it, right? So, we shot a variety of shots with the guys in the house where they were getting ready. There was a really cute little boy that I wanted to feature. The image below is the result. I also shot some reflection off the party bus as the guys were waiting to jump in. Kind of different.
This was a Egyptian couple and the church had some interesting detail. By the way, I was really thrown when people were chanting in the ceremony. Everyone has their traditions and it's interesting to be an outside observer. Just wish I had some audio to share with you to give you a sense of how it sounded.
Bride & Bridal Party
Since the priest was running a few minutes late, I was lucky enough to get a few minutes with the bride to shoot a couple images. She was beaming on her special day and is as nice in person as she appears to be in pictures.
A couple shots of the bridal party and a quick capture of the bride and groom during the ceremony.
This shot of Marian & Antwan just after they exited the church is one of my favorites.
Finally, a few of the first dance as bride and groom and the dance with their parents. Congrats guys! This was the first time I worked with Mike and his crew, and they were such a nice bunch of guys. Two were shooting video and we all had fun working this event. I'd love to work with them again.
