"Wow, you look amazing in your wedding dress! Would you mind coming out in the rain with me for a bit?" "Say, before we start the ceremony, how about taking a hike in your tuxedo through the forrest?"
"I know you said you wanted photos by the ocean, but what if you got in the ocean?"
"Just hold that pose a little longer, and try to ignore the frostbite, I've almost got the lighting down!"
"Pay no attention to the crowd forming, give her one more kiss!"
"Hey stranger, would you mind holding this branch in front of my camera for a few minutes?"
For some reason, all of these scenarios have presented themselves during recent wedding and engagement shoots. Luckily, I've been blessed with some of the most patient and adventurous couples to ever step in front of a camera, and I'd like to take a minute to thank them for putting themselves in these bizarre situations for the sake of better photography.
I have only just recently put my wedding photography portfolio online. I was afraid to share my work until I had assembled the "perfect" wedding portfolio. So, is my portfolio perfect? Absolutely not. Will it ever be? No. But every moment I sit on these photos they are going to waste, and I owe it to those wonderful, adventurous couples to share their photos with the world. So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy my forever-in-progress Wedding & Couples portfolio.
