meghan + bryan wedding at the waterview



















Meghan & Bryan went from one shooting extreme to the next with me- when we did their engagement shoot in February it was so bitter cold I thought my fingers were going to snap off! Then come their wedding on the 3rd of August at St. Gabriel's in Milford (not air conditioned!)and I thought I was going to melt- it was so super hot but that didn't seem to matter to anyone- not one person complained and everyone had the best time! Bryan gets to join the ranks of my emotional and sweet grooms (that means you Yves!;) He had a moment of pure, raw emotion while waiting at the aisle for Meghan to appear- he totally set off the entire cadre of bridesmaids and sent them into tears! He was laughing at me, during this moment of such intimate exposure, because there I was with my camera catching him at his most vulnerable. But before I shot, I made eye contact with him, encouraged him- I was a person first, a photographer second. Maybe that makes me not the best photographer? Or maybe that makes me a better one? In any event I had a great time because I had some serious company shooting on this super hot day- my right arm and ace photographer Robin Dini and guest star Richard Esposito were my artillery for the day! We had a blast and all learned some amazing new things from each other. Now, I have three ring shots posted- I couldn't decide which one was my favorite- the one with the picture is Meghan's parents' wedding picture- it was hanging on their wall so I popped the rings on the frame and had fun- sweet, right? I love tying the past with the future visually! Then I had fun hanging Meghan's dress on the clothesline- Thanks for trusting me and not second guessing me- she was like 'Oh the clothesline? Perfect! Need help?' I love when my ideas are supported and trusted, it's an amazing and empowering feeling. So then I had to play with the rings on the clothesline, and love both shots. And then I became obsessed with the flower girl- she was so cute! All in all we had a blast- and had fun watching RE roll in the sand, Carla style!

The dress on the line, snazzy! I love the texture too! J de R? You can't go wrong with a beach wedding.

Carla Ten Eyck said...

J de R for shizzle! I am loving those new textures, they are so much fun to use and create a really beautiful, layered piece of art!
Yeah I am putting those Carla in action shots jsut for you, Jeff! Thanks Melissa- I had a creative surge because there was really no where to hang the dress- they had it in the basement! I couldn't really work that so I had to literally think outsie of the box on this one! Sounds like it worked!! ;)
