My last blog post was a selection of pictures from a wedding where I WASN’T the official wedding photographer. The photographer for Zac & Lisa’s wedding was a guy who kept referring to himself as “Uncle Brian,” making corny jokes, doing strange dance moves, and making everyone feel a little awkward. I’m sure his pictures were nice, but he pretty much stuck to the formals – nothing extremely creative, from what I saw.
Thankfully, I was the main photographer for Paul & Anne (McLain) Scharnett’s wedding. I say thankfully because the weekend was a TON of fun. I lived with Paul for two (or three) years in college – it’s all a blur now; and I knew Anne really well since she lived in the girls’ house next door to our guys’ cooperative. This wedding was a mini-reunion of sorts, which every “Koin-Strat” wedding seems to be. But, being the photographer, I got to spend most of the ENTIRE weekend with a group of great people.
I hope the pictures that I deliver will portray the love and excitement that Paul & Anne share for each other. Since this was my first wedding and I was shooting solo, there are a couple things I would do differently in the future. But overall, I’m happy with the pictures so far – I’m still a little ways from being done with editing them all. Here’s a bunch that are done. Click on any of them for a larger version. ENJOY! And comment if you have suggestions/thoughts/criticisms. I’ll be posting several more pictures in the future. Keep checking back!
