We had the pleasure of shooting Ross and Kristen's engagement last summer and the time finally came for us to be a part of their wedding day. The element of their wedding that was most memorable for me was an abiding sense of peacefulness. Weddings are stressful events - even though most are full of fun as well. However, Kristen and Ross were able to enjoy their day fully while experiencing it in a calm way. It was so nice for Kristin (my wife - who has an "in" as opposed to the bride's "en") and I to go through our day shooting with the two of them (as well as the families and friends) without any added pressure. I am certain this is do to Ross and Kristen's great personalities.
Love this next shot - I have seen a lot of feathers and flowers in bridal headpieces recently and they look great. Kristin's creates an overall look that was perfectly fitting.
The small rings here were Kristen's grandmother's rings.
The church was insane - it was modeled after a church in France and it made us feel like we were in Europe.
Kristin (my wife) suggested I shoot through this lead-crossed window and I threw in a bit of flash around the corner on Ross and Kristen - and one neat shot was produced - of course this would all be for naught if the love was not there!
the girls did some silly peaking over their flowers...
and the guys must have been jealous and wanted a bit of flower action themselves.
One of my favorites - the photo is nice - but the emotion is very meaningful - I am humbled to be able to shoot things like this and provide a way of remembering such a special time.
the table centerpieces were terrific.
Good luck guys (especially while finishing up your doctorate Ross)!
