Yesterday, (erm. timestamp says today...whatevs.)
I told you about how my brother and his fiance asked if I'd take some photos when they got hitched.
Now - I'm not a great photographer - I don't even know if I'd say I'm good.
I can get some good shots.
Especially with my purty little Nikon.
Which I'm going to take photo classes with.
BUT! These are some photos of a friends wedding that I took last spring. I was the MOH, the photographer, the wedding reception surprise throwing extrordinaire and a little bit of a bunch of other things :) These are a few of the photos that make my heart happy.
The day they got married, I slept little to no hours. I spent the night before cooking up a storm and making a cupcake stand look pretty...because they had changed their plans and were now getting married at City Hall a month earlier than they had planned - and were just going to get married and take a few photos - and a wedding day should be special..so I tried to make it as special as I could!
Then - SUPERERIN! came to the rescue and fixed the bouquet with some added flowers
I fake hemmed the grooms pants that were WAY TOO LONG as we walked out the door to their apartment...and made our way to City Hall.
We walked in - and four minutes later? They were married.
Then - we took a bunch of photos - and then I took them (and their families and a couple of friends) out to my parents farm, where we had a surprise lunch with a cute little reception - esk- thing and we toured the property and I made them laugh and giggle and do silly things for photo ops.
|Four Minutes AND Married!|
|It was a beautiful day for a wedding!|
|Our Walk - Going To City Hall!|
|Newly Wed Kiss|
|..Right outta the 50's?|
|Stopping for a break on our walk around the farm!|
|Time to toast to the happy couple!|
|Chocolate PB Cupcakes. You all wish I was your MOH. I can tell.|
|Happy Bride :)|
|I love when photos capture real moments of happiness, love and laughter.|
Oh. Did I also mention that I took photos at their reception held a couple months later? But yeah. I was drunk. The entire time. Sooo...yeah. The quality? Not so good. And only gets worse. Sorry 'bout that.
|One of the tables - their reception was in this beautiful, old restored barn! <3|
|Even their puppy got to come! He had a bowtie and everything!|
|Some of my favourite university friends!|
|This is right before the nice camera got taken away from me. Because apparently I was "way beyond the point of intoxication to be anywhere near electronics. Or people" Yes, they're laughing at me.|
|The dance moves are STELLAR. What a good barn slam.|
They're not great. Not professional by any means...
But I like them.
I'm no professional - but here's hoping I can get them some good shots and make some photo memories of their special day!
And then take the photos and make them a beautiful leather bound photo album from Shutterfly.com. But shhhush. That part is their top secret wedding present!!
