Week 4 Photographing a Wedding


I assisted Becca Dilley, http://www.beccadilley.com/, at one of the weddings she was photographing. It was the marriage of Michael & Jessica in the Science Museum of Minnesota. It was incredibly fun and I learned a lot about photographing weddings and photography in general. I also learned that this is defiantly the type of photography that I want to specialize in. It was so incredible being a part of such a joyous event as a wedding and I spent so much time with the wedding party that I had gotten to know them by the end of the night. The Photograph above is my favorite out of the 300+ I made. I like how I caught Jessica at the perfect moment when she was touching the ring and looking lovingly up at Mike. This was made right after the ceremony when they were signing the official documents.

There were a lot of great photographs from this so I felt I had to share a few more. We spent a few hours before the wedding outside taking photographs of the bride and groom and the wedding party. It was also a festival day and there was a parade, ice sculptures and lots of people. We then moved to the science museum and got photographs at lots of the cool exhibits. Then the ceremony, social time, diner where they had to kiss every time someone correctly guessed the answer to science trivia questions and finally dancing. The dancing was fun because after the first formal dance things got more relaxed and people started just having fun! All in all it was an amazing experience and I defiantly want to do it again.

Week 41 Wedding & Fun Run

Well I have gotten very behind on uploading my weekly photographic challenge photographs. I have been so busy with school photo projects and photo jobs that it has gotten pushed to the side. Hopefully I will have some time to catch up over winter break. Here is one section. This week I photographed a wedding. This was a special one for me because it was the first wedding where I was the primary photographer and it wasn't family or friends. I had a lot of fun and pulled through it alright. I have decided though that people management and posing is where I need to most improvement. Also this week I photographed a Fun Run with my class. It was a lot of fun and I got to photograph a skunk that was nearby. To my dismay the police then came and shot the skunk because it was in the way of all the running kids.
