While I’ve shot a lot of weddings I’d never claim that they all start looking alike, BUT from time to time one of them will really stand out from the rest. The reasons vary, it could be a couple you really build a bond with, a really cool location or sometimes it is just the day they decide to get married on.
Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I shot a wedding that stood out for all of those reasons. The couple was very friendly and the bride treated me more like a member of the family than the hired photographer, there was a very interesting cast of characters and NO BRIDESMAIDS! Yes, that’s correct, the bride had 3 guys as bridesmaids, so I guess there were bridesmaids, but no women serving in those rolls. The bride had some music I’d never heard played at a wedding and walked down the aisle to “Going to the chapel”. Even after all the weddings we’ve shot it was a day filled with firsts and I’ll never forget it.
