Brett + Kristy

About a month ago (has it been that long?!) my friend Janae was photographing a wedding at the Bountiful Temple. Since I live nearby, she said I was welcome to come and do some shots for fun. It was a beautiful October day...not too cold, and the noonday sun cooperated and stayed behind the clouds for the most part.

I think I confused just about everyone on both sides of the family -- since no one knew who the heck I was. Finally the bride asked Janae if she knew me. It was pretty funny! :) Maybe I should just show up at random weddings and start taking pictures. I'd been doing it for a good 30 or 40 minutes before anyone said anything. Great way to build that wedding portfolio, huh?

The best part about shooting weddings for fun is the fact that there is no pressure. I felt more at ease trying shots and angles that I might otherwise hesitate to do. So, here are a few favorites, from me....the wedding stalker. :)

These are great. I love the one where the Temple only is in focus.

And sorry I didn't introduce you. It was a little crazy. It was pretty funny once we got it all straightened out.

Thanks for coming with me.

How fun! No pressure shooting, and you did a great job of it. I love the big group shot, and especially the guy behind the couple's expression!

How fun to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding with no pressure. Fun group shot and interesting shoe/sock shot. Her dress was so pretty as well.
