West Virginia wedding

3 02 2010

In 2003 I photographed the wedding of the daughter of some friends in West Virginia. The wedding was held outdoors on their 33-acre farm, and for July, it was remarkably nice weather! The bride’s best friend was supposed to shoot the wedding as a gift to her, but her parents gave her a trip overseas as a graduation present and she just couldn’t pass it up. I had already volunteered to help with decorations and flower arrangements, so my friends asked me if I would consider covering the event for them. I was very happy to do so. It was my first wedding shot in digital format—utilizing my (then new) Fuji S2 camera. I also wanted the opportunity to do some of the more popular and more casual “photojournalistic” style now popular in contemporary weddings. The majority of the 100+ weddings I’ve shot in the past were a bit more traditional (I even had a list of specific poses to cover when I worked for a wedding photographer one summer!). Obviously, I still covered the traditional group shots (just a few are shown below), but I had the freedom to shoot whatever caught my eye, too. Below is collage with just some of hundreds of images I captured that beautiful day.

I love the bubbles photo. Perfect moment perfectly executed. The guys at the end just scream personality as well, and this seems like the sort of shot that makes wedding photos bring memories back. Great use of informal journalistic style in this set.
