An entry with nothing to do with John Wilkes Booth and Abraham Lincoln.
All I can say is wow. It’s Sunday night and I just got back from Southwest Florida photographing one of the most amazing wedding I’ve ever had the privilege to be a part of.
My goal going in: To make Sean & Tracy’s wedding story special & unique. One way I thought I could do this was to utilize some lights, a TV, twine, a wireless trigger, and most importantly a camera on a tripod. All these random objects to create a photo booth. I think MacGyver could have done the whole thing with a sock, some gum, and his pocket knife, but I needed all those goodies to make it work. The booth allowed guests to stand by the camera and press a button and take as many of their own pictures as they wanted with their own styles and ideas. This is the digital age of instant gratification so I thought I ought to take advantage of that and set up a TV next to the booth that would display the photograph right after it was taken. It was essentially a self-sufficient memory maker allowing me to be elsewhere gathering more images of things like the groom tearing up the stage on the electric guitar while his bride sang back-up for a song about Chicago. More photographs from their wedding and more on that later. In the meantime here are a few of my favorites from the photo booth.
Quite possibly the two guests with the most photo booth appearances
Sean and Tracy, I cannot thank you enough for inviting me into your life for your wedding!
