Tony and Megan's wedding was one of the most fun weddings I've attended in my entire life. I knew every person in the wedding party and some of them are close friends of mine. I knew their personalities so well and it was fun to capture those on camera. They're not the average couple, they wanted fun, silly pictures more than anything!
Phil's, the best man's, speech summed up Tony and Megan perfectly. He said that when he was first introduced to Tony, the person who introduced them called Tony "a special child", and at first, Phil believed her. Later though, when he got to know Tony better, he realized he was more "normal" than originally thought. Phil then said that when he met Megan, it was the exact opposite. He thought she was pretty normal, but then realized that she's pretty special in her own way too, which makes the two of them a perfect match.
Meet Katie. I saw some really creative pictures where other photographers were doing something called "Trash the Dress". It's sometimes done with brides after their weddings and also done with girl's prom dresses. Katie modeled for me in a fancy dress in a river near her house. It was bright and sunny that day, and afterwards we put on our swim suits and tubed down the river. So fun!
Meet the McDermotts. Laura, the one on the right, is my roommate this year at college, and wanted to get family pictures for her dad for his birthday. They came to campus one day, and our vanity was full of make up and hair products as Kate and Laura got ready. We didn't have much time to take the pictures so we went just right outside our apartment, but because of the fall colors it was beautiful.
Meet Leslie. This girl is a good friend of mine who happens to love getting her picture taken. She's a student at UW-Madison this year and a music major with a beautiful voice. I went to a convention this January and asked her to come model for me so I could use what I'd learn. We played great music and had so much fun taking pictures!
