John and Amy hired a local photographer to work the wedding so I was just up there to enjoy. Of course I felt odd just going to a wedding so I volunteered to take the pictures of the wedding rehearsal and the dinner afterwards. The location was beautiful. We were in the countryside overlooking some distant hills and mountains. The location was called View Point at Buckhorn Creek. The rehearsal dinner was at the brewery where John works which is called Thomas Creek.
The day of the wedding I took some pictures but I did my best to stay out of the way of the people getting paid. I know how annoying it can be when people are hovering or try to copy the pictures you are setting up.
Out of the weddings that I’ve done this may have been one of the more challenging ones for me to get pictures of during the ceremony. I didn’t have any issues getting pictures before or after but during I had a new variable to deal with that I hadn’t experienced before. That variable would be trying to contain and/or hold an excited year and half old from being a distraction.
After he walked down the aisle as the ring bearer (see image to the side). I scooped him up and went to the back because he just wanted to be in the middle of everything. Once we got to the back and he calmed down a little so I tried to snap a few shots of the couple and bridal party.
I pull my camera up to my eye, make a few adjustments and just when I’m about to snap a shot my zoom backs out. I should have known better, the little guy in my arms couldn’t resist turning the knob and messing with the switches on the lens. He thought it was just some much fun. So needless to say I had an interesting time getting the few shots I wanted.
As with every wedding everyone had a great time. Congratulations to John and Amy.
