This was a wedding that I didn’t go to as the official shooter. I was just a guest with an unusually large camera and flash combo. 😉
I have know Kate for quite awhile now. She doesn’t live in Minneapolis, so we don’t see each other a lot, but she is great friend/cousin, and I wish her all the best.
I bet you can’t tell that Alison is her sister. It was fun to be shooting at an event where you knew the people that you were taking pictures of. I think it helped to get some fun shots.
Sometimes you know that a picture of a brother and sister captures a moment that you might not realize is so appropriate unless you know the people.
I think by paying attention (and taking a lot of pictures) I got a few great looks.
And a picture of the dress detail can’t hurt.
Or the love(ly) cake.
A few opportune shots on the dance floor round out the package.
It was a fun wedding to be a part of. Everyone had a great time. It was an interesting experience to try to stay out of the way of the official photographer, and still get some good shots. I think I did a pretty good job. He didn’t shoot much of the reception or the dance floor, so it wasn’t too difficult.
Congratulations Kate and Eric.
Whoa…I thought these were from the official photographer! Nice work, Chris.
Thanks sabrina. I have been shooting weddings, but this was just a guest spot. 🙂 Have you seen my other wedding photos on http://www.christopherwardphotography.com? That’s my wedding/portrait site. I’ll get some of these up there soon too.
OMG – these are amazing!!!!!
