So, photography is my passion, and is currently sort of a side-job of sorts. I'm trying to make it into a career, but that's going to take some time.
One of the easiest gigs to get is weddings, and my most recent one was SO much fun, and some of the pictures that came out of it were some of my all-time favorites so far, so I thought I'd share some of them with you
They were all taken at the Farmington Inn (where the bride got ready) in Farmington, CT, the Carousel Museum (where the wedding was) in Bristol, CT, and the Farmington Club (where the reception was), again, in Farmington, CT. All were taken with my Canon EOS 40D, a "Nifty Fifty" lens (Canon 50mm f/1.
, and using a Canon 430EX II Speedlite flash.
In all, I took around 1500 photographs--my personal record for "most photos taken at a single wedding". It was a TON of fun.
And if you're wondering about the star-shaped sunglasses and the fake mustaches, they were all the bride's idea. She brought them out when there was about half an hour left of the reception. ALSO! PLEASE NOTE!! THIS IS ONLY ABOUT HALF OF THE PICTURES THAT I HAVE UPLOADED. I HAVE 31 ONLINE RIGHT NOW, BUT DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE THAT BIG OF A POST. THE REST OF THE PHOTOS CAN BE SEEN ON MY BLOG HERE: http://renaeduhaime.wordpress.com
I think this one was definitely my favorite from the day. Definitely showcases the bride's personality.
She really wasn't a Bridezilla at all--I just caught her at JUST the right moment for this shot, and she laughed when I showed it to her.
A little post-processing on this one to really give the photo a strong subject and theme.
The groom had this in his pocket the whole time--he said that one of his old teachers drew this for him when she found out he was getting married. The little girl at the bottom of the photo is supposed to be her--as the flower girl, lol. The only thing is that the bride decided not to take his last name (Toller, as seen in the photo), so it's slightly incorrect, but adorable nonetheless.
Definitely posed, but the light coming in through this window was so nice, I had to take a picture. Another that was slightly processed (just took out the color around the bride) to add emphasis to the subject.
Another one not posed, and also edited for emphasis.
I was SO happy that I got this shot--the groom's fake mustache fell off, and the bride was sticking it back on. I later showed the picture to the bride, and she said, "how did you get that shot?? That's like, the perfect moment!!" Comments like that make my day.
So, there they are!
I hope you enjoyed them, and I always appreciate comments and/or constructive
