Yay for beautiful sunshine and wonderful weddings. This Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing Jessica & Xavier’s wedding day. These two are a blast and they’ve got a tight-knit group of friends which made for lots of fun hanging out under a waterfall during the wedding party photos.
I’m just posting a few highlights; I was on staff for Becoming Images this time around, so Penny will get images processed and posted as soon as her wedding season calms down.
One of my favorite weddings. The weather was killer (almost too warm for Juneau) but it fit the hot-pink of the wedding party attire. These guys were fun, full of laughs and a joy every step of the way.
Take a look at a few highlights below!
For New Years Eve, I was asked to be a second photographer for a wedding by Penny of Becoming Images. I pretty much maintain that if Penny asks me to join in something, it will be 1) a blast, and 2) beautiful. This wedding was no different. 🙂
Meet the happy couple: Ann & Andrew Klausner, they’re a an amazing duo and know how to throw a party! I was especially impressed at the little details that were thought of in advance… For instance, at the full Catholic Mass, one of the wedding favors were mini LED flashlights, as the ceremony started before dark, and the sun had set by the time it ended.
Their reception was perfect. A packed room of excited folks with great food and good music (complete with dance-floor lights!)
Anyhow, for prints/downloads of these images, check with Penny, but for a quick preview, check below!
Eli is my best friend and has been for years and years and years. Since elementary school, in fact. He was my best man a couple years back (thanks Eli!) and as we all know, one good turn deserves another. A few months ago Eli asked if I would be his Best Man. Honored, I accepted!
Now, an interesting wrinkle would present itself… I consider myself a bit of a photographer, too.
As details were flying about, it was determined that I would be the guy to coordinate wedding photos for the big day too. Hmm.
Fortunately, as time drew closer, we devised a master plan. I would be the “consultant” and I would have my equipment in the hands of my lovely wife who has helped me in numbers of other weddings. And, to increase the number of images to have for the Bride & Groom afterwards, I asked another close friend who is similarly passionate about photography: Pat Grieser. Originally, I had expected to be the brains while Heather & Pat fulfilled the brawn… It didn’t quite work out that way.
As the Wedding Eve arrived, I realized that in order to be the best Best Man I could be, I couldn’t pay any mind to the cameras in the room – I just needed to serve and be the friend. Fortunately, Pat & Heather came through incredibly well for the pressures of a wedding. We were all excellent about playing our roles and the resulting images are awesome. I’m not sure if I’ve broken Pat of the interest in ever going into wedding photography, but the wedding itself was a blast.
I did get to put on my photographer hat on Sunday afternoon when Ariel, Eli, Heather & myself went out for some beautiful portraiture with rustic backdrops and even throughout downtown Leavenworth.
And, without further adieu, I should show you a few more pictures…
And, I should leave you with a bigger version of a few favorites… Enjoy!
Okay, so it’s true that these two have been married for nearly 4 months (gasp!), but as I’m catching up on the blog, you get a nice dose of them entering the holidays.
I _might_ be biased, but I’m pretty sure I have the best Brides and Grooms. Tara and Andrew are an awesome couple. We had a blast hanging out with them for the wedding, and of course for the “Trash the Dress” Session, but mostly I just enjoy their joy of life. Tara is constantly in full cheek-to-cheek smile, and Andrew is the same. Every time I look through their photos I grin from ear to ear too. Their energy is contagious!
Anyhow, here are a few of the highlights, but click on the link to visit their event gallery with all of their images!
A couple weekends ago, I was the second photographer at the wedding of Misa & Ory. Here are some highlights from the day. At the bottom, you’ll find a link to all of the images. Enjoy!
