Wedding Weekend Wrap-up

A quiet moment

Had a great time at the wedding this weekend - nice ceremony, and a fairy tale reception under a big white tent in the garden. I came back with almost 500 shots, which I pared down to around 100 to edit for friends/family. I'm only about halfway through those, but I took the time to pick a few of my favorites and post them to flickr.

Set here.

I tried my best to follow my own advice, and while I didn't always succeed (it's easy to get caught up in the moment and take 200 pictures of the bride and groom on the altar...), I think I managed to capture some unique shots. The one above is probably my favorite from the day. We ended up behind the sweetheart table because of the layout under the tent. When they finally sat down to eat after visiting with everyone, I managed to capture their quiet moment together (without intruding).

This one is a close second. I saw this sweet ride and immediately envisioned this shot. While everyone else lined up for bubbles, I parked myself by the front corner of the car with my zoom at its widest setting and waited. I got nice and low, and captured the length and lines of the car and the happy groom getting in to drive away with his new wife. After reading a tutorial on a simple cross-processing technique yesterday (more to come on that), I went for the vintage feel to compliment the vintage car.

All in all, a great weekend with some great times, great friends, and (I think) great images.
