Last week I returned home to the Midwest for a family wedding. It was a nice change to sit back and be a guest at the wedding. I enjoyed the people, the conversations, and the event as a whole. At the same time I will admit, it was hard not photographing the wedding. Shooting weddings is what I do and it felt a little strange not watching the event from the viewfinder of my camera.
Multiple times I said, “Oh, I don’t have all my equipment. I won’t really shoot. I will only take a couple of shots here and there.” Well, a couple of shots turned into a couple more. These are a few shots from a wedding I was not intending to shoot, but I just couldn’t resist. There was so much love in the air. And as with every wedding, there were so many special moments that I wanted to photograph.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! It was wonderful to be able to share in your special day.
