It’s not often I get to photograph the week leading up to a wedding day, let alone join a couple on their honeymoon. But in November, we did all that.
After photographing our friend’s wedding we drove to Las Vegas together.
Since we’ve left Vegas I’ve only dreamed of Vegas.
They walked through the streets downtown, had a coffee, and got married.
The last photo was taken right before I left. I always like to take one last portrait of the bride and groom because any nervousness from the day has subsided. It was taken with a point and shoot film camera because I imagined it as one of those heirloom photos in an album.
Here are a few of my personal favorites.
It’s not often I get to photograph the week leading up to the wedding day. But I had the opportunity in November, 2018 and hope to continually do so for couples this year.
The week leading up to the wedding included dress fittings, the bride recording a song for their first dance, night time phone calls to the groom in a parking lot, binge watching a TV show, picking up the dress, setting up the backyard for the wedding, and quiet evenings at home.
You can see what they said about their photos here.
I chose to photograph Lucy and Joe with a point and shoot film camera with expired Kodak Gold 200 because it suit them best. They’re laid-back, minimal, real. I also based the location on this. They can take a location that’s not over the top and make it cool.
