Curiosity at Castaway

Curiosity is part of what makes a good photographer. Curiosity is what keeps a fresh eye to the camera… bored photographers don’t see as much. ;0)

This little catch at Castaway was a break in the long and hard part of the wedding day… the part of the day where you and your love have to stand in line for the formal group shots that history seems to require. I try very hard to help my clients build a list that works for them but one that doesn’t overwhelm the day… we make the list and we make the time to do it. But in between the lines of people standing in front of the camera are these little breaks where someone has to go get somebody else and the players in that group revert to their own bad selves for a few minutes. I saw them start to crowd in so I moved in for a closer look… ever curious. I love the look on Kevin’s face as Karri spots the flask!

What’s in your pocket today?

When in Doubt, Act Out!

Camera shy? The secret is to act out, get a little goofy for a few minutes. Sure, our moms all raised us to behave a certain way for pictures but what fun is a tight smile and a let’s-get-this-over-with attitude? You can tell when the real personalities start to come to the surface. In a wedding day, it’s about helping each other relax… to be together in the moment. If you have hired the right photographer, your friends and families will recognize your true selves. So get a little silly to start with and watch the magic pictures come to the surface afterwards.

Kate and Ian were a treat to work with and Ian did what Ian does to loosen up his camera shy bride. Thanks, Ian!
