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 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers. 






Week 3 Jump High

For this week I had this plan of making a photograph of someone jumping high into the air maybe with a dog next to them or some other sort of creative twist. Laura's little brother was happy to be my model and had lots of fun showing off his cool jumps and flips. It was a very challenging shoot because the overcast day made for a low level of light and jumping on a trampoline is fast action. I did manage to make a few good photographs this one being my favorite because you can see al of James and it almost looks like he is flying instead of jumping. I like how you can see the trampoline but there is a lot of space between him and it. I wish that his head was more centered in the photograph and he wasn't looking out of the frame because as it is the composition doesn't keep your eyes in the image. I did also make some nice portraits when he took rest breaks.
