I love a new challenge, and this was a good one! One of my lovely co-workers came up to me and said she would love to gift some family portraits at her brother-in-law’s wedding. It was a second wedding, so they didn’t make a big deal about getting all of the traditional wedding photos, this was an opportunity to get some large group portraits. And I know how rare that can be! I have a large family, spread out all of the US, I guess the only time we all get together is at weddings! And it can be so so hard to try and get everyone in the same photo, nearly impossible! So that’s where the organizing and planning comes in, there’s no other way to do it! :)
I was a little nervous, never having dealt with such a large group, and it was a bit larger than I thought it would be, but I was confident knowing that I had a good helper around! And it didn’t go bad at all, of course it took a minute to get everyone focused and ready, but that’s to be expected. And we got lucky with some gorgeous weather that afternoon! My only disappointment was that we had a pretty short time span and I really really, really wanted to do some more creative shots, I had so many good ideas! But I am happy I was able to snap some of the couple themselves. Aren’t they just too cute together??
