try as we did, the morning-sunrise-trash-the-dress idea, as beautiful as it sounds in theory just didn’t fly. the sun rises too early! (erika and robbie agreed, these are my kind of people). so instead, we opted for an evening trash the dress and the photos turned out even better than we could have planned anyway.
dru and i are still in the stages of sorting through everything (4500 images later, hello) but i couldn’t help taking a break from the wedding day photos this afternoon to have a sneak through these. hope you like!
ps: the outtake is still making me nauseous. or proud. or nauseous. the camera only got a little wet though ; )
I’m going to go out on a limb and say photographing a wedding like Kev & Holly’s is why I enjoy what I do. Now, I’ll totally admit I’ve done a few weddings in which afterwards, I thought the only way I would feel better would be by packing up my camera (lenses and all), putting everything in a bag, and launching it onto the side of a road next a cardboard sign saying “free” haphazardly propped up somewhere in it’s vicinity… My dues have definitely been paid on a few fronts. So when the day goes as fun as these two’s did, and you end up tearing it up (eyes wise and dance floor wise I might add) I can’t help but be genuinely jacked. There might be a bit of a negative “air” that blows around to admitting I am in fact a wedding photographer, but come on. Who else gets to hang out with people on one of the happiest days of their lives? That’s a lot of happy when the weddings start piling up!
You can’t really beat that.
Another quick preview of the Chafe-Ryan wedding I got the chance to shoot last weekend! It was definitely a cold day for April (that’s snow you can see in the tunnel), but it was worth it and the day went really well! I’m definitely glad this was my first wedding of the summer, and it’ll be perfect to finish off in Jamaica this December. Not that I’m wishing away the summer though!
More posts to come soon! I’ve been in and out of town a lot these past few weeks so I have everything from photos and even a video from my Pop’s 70th birthday, photos from Port Rexton, Ellison, Bonavista, Bonaventure, and St. John’s to go up as well! I actually think I’ve taken more photos in these past few weeks than I have since I’ve gotten my camera. SO nice to be out of school and shoot for fun : )
