BD’s Daughter’s WeddingSeptember 5, 2006
“I know, I know. The last thing you need to see is another wedding picture. Can’t help it though, so here are a couple of images from our oldest daughter’s recent wedding. Thank goodness Jessica Claire and Ray Prevost came along and did most of the heavy lifting. My baby girl really wanted me to shoot her big day, but I really wanted to drink and dance. A happy compromise was struck and, thanks to the help of these two very talented shooters, I got to work a little while partying a lot. We admire Ray’s tableau style for semi-formal groups and we knew that Jessica would bring her energetic ‘get in there and dig out the moments’ style to the procedings. That’s much the way it went, and I quickly fell into the roll of “Uncle Bob with a camera.” I tend to work from the outside in, and as Jess was generally working very close to the subjects, I probably stayed to the outside more than I usually to. And that was just fine. It gave me time to play with some lighting prototypes I’m developing with Westcott and Quantum.
