Normally I would not use a bridesmaid photo as my hallmark image from a wedding. However, the story behind this is important. I photographed Sofia’s wedding Edith’s wedding (either side of the bride). The only wedding I did not photograph of the four of these ladies was Elizabeth. I jokingly asked her about that. She took it in good humor, however, it was not a joke. Turns out she had contacted me about photographing her wedding, but her parents decided to select someone less expensive. A decision she would later regret. ” It’s still a sore point. My parents apologized to me about it.” Lesson: Choose carefully who photographs your wedding. You wedding photographs will outlast just about everything (notable exception is the rings) you spend money on at this grand event. You will not get a second chance at it.
The sunset image was actually taken in the parking lot of the church. I looked around for a good opening to the western sky, and there was none within easy walk. I laid down on the ground and tried to isolate them as much as possible.
