First off: I know, I know, I know. I am a horrible humanoid-type creature who should no longer be allowed to run a fashion blog if all I wear is denim cutoffs. I’m sorry! The summer heat has gotten me stuck in a rut where all I want to do is wear shorts, and the only pairs I really like are my two pairs of denim cutoffs and one olive green pair that’s sort of utility-style. I really need to get a few more pairs once I go shopping (that one trip was postponed :P) so I’m not wearing the same shorts in every other post!
Now, onto the really exciting part of this post. Today I photographed a real, live wedding! It was the second marriage for both of them – Lara and her two kids go to my church, and I’m friends with Karl’s daughter through church as well. (Well, “church”. It’s not really. Ish.) I used an 8 gigabyte memory card, took about two thousand photographs (!), and gave the card to Lara so she can play with the photos how she likes, and pick out her favourites. Once she gives me the card back, she’s given me permission to post some of the photos on here! I’m super excited – it was a beautiful, casual, intimate ceremony in a friend’s backyard in the country. I’ll save most of the descriptions, as the photos will show you everything when I post them, probably mid-week.
Two other girls, Ellie and Harper, also helped document the day. Ellie video-ed (how do you say that?) the whole ceremony, and a lot of the reception as well. I can’t wait for her to craft the footage into a video that I can link to here – it’s going to be gorgeous, I know! Harper was another photographer, and she and I worked together to get as many angles as possible. This was surely the most well-documented wedding in history!
Oh and also, yes, I wore this photographed outfit to the wedding. Like I said, it was quite casual and if I’d have worn pants I would have died! And a skirt would have left me in some awkward positions while I was capturing photos. Anyone who’s ever seen me at work trying to get a photo (when I’m behind the camera) will testify that I will generally contort my body into whatever position is necessary to get the photo I want! I needed to wear shorts to be mobile. Oh, and the white? Hey, the bride wasn’t even wearing white. She was wearing a very pretty iridescent brown gown :)
