I don't pretend to be of remotely the same caliber as Daryl Musser Photography, the pro photographers at Art & Lisa's wedding. But I had so much fun that I bet the sun was jealous. Candid photography is exquisite because I get to follow my friends around all day, seeing, capturing, and being a part of almost everything. It's a fun challenge to look for angles and moments not being caught by the first shooters and documenting things as I see them without the pressure of trying to be perfect. :)
Just a little FYI, if you're getting married and looking for a photographer, I highly recommend Daryl Musser and his wife. I've followed their blog and admired their work for years, but neither their blog nor their facebook page wholly conveys the joy of working with them. They were professional and helpful, humble and admiring, funny and warmly human. I was especially impressed with their sensitivity to the bride and groom's relationship dynamic... they were all about capturing who Art and Lisa ARE.
Aaaand, here is the final run-down of a few of my favorite shots:
A little quiet interaction between poses...
Lisa's brother-in-law, Stephen, was holding the light screen one moment and the next...
My, my! What big EARS you have!
Another angle of a shot the Mussers' were taking...
The photo table also had objects Art and Lisa had saved during significant moments in their story. A few I recognized and laughed at how much proverbial water has gone under the proverbial bridge. For instance, the jar of maple syrup I bought at Market House for Lisa when we were both at FB... a token of an inside joke involving her sappiness. :)
While waiting to enter the reception, Art was sitting in a very typical attitude. He saw me coming with the camera and said, "Yup, my job is done now." :)
Happily ever-after, Art and Lisa. I love you guys.
