So my sister in law wanted a very casual wedding on the beach. She didn’t want to hire a photographer, so she asked me to do her a favor and take some pictures. I said yes. Then, later I panicked when I realized that I have no earthly clue how to properly photograph a wedding. My only reference being my own wedding photos… my big hair… and those wacky teal satin bridesmaid dresses that I swore those girls would wear again.
The night before the wedding, I went to Flickr for some beach wedding photography inspiration. It gave me some good ideas, and some not so good ideas on how to pose a couple. I memorized everything I saw.
So below are a few of the pictures from the day… for better or for worse.
I kind of like how the picture below turned out. Their heads and the point at the bottom of her skirt form a heart. This photo is what I call a “happy accident”. Hey, If I ever start a photography business that’s what I’ll call it… Happy Accidents!
I love the bride’s wedding shoes. I couldn’t resist.
The cake tasted as good as it looked! I’m a sucker for a beach theme.
I discovered I could have used an assistant to help with the flower girls. They were over it!
I should have brought along a rodeo clown.
And one last picture of the bride and groom walking off into the sunset/slash/fog.
Congratulations, L and J! Enjoy your honeymoon!
Man, I need a vacation!
