The above frames were taken at the wedding of Jennifer and Robbie this past July. They were a fantastic couple from NYC. Jennifer had grown up in the PNW and had a strong connection to Seattle, this influenced her decision to hold her nuptials on the opposite coast.
The success of the images above have little to do with my skill with the camera and much more to do with the relationship I was able to establish with the couple before the event. In all honesty, the photos were a success because I had a successful collaboration with the couple in making the frames. I wasn’t the weird guy with the camera, instead, I was just, Sean, hanging out and enjoying the festivities with the friends and family of the couple. I earned their trust before the wedding and respected that trust once I earned it. The couple was comfortable enough with me to be themselves and I knew I could work close to them without worrying if I was invading their space. There is so much more than good technique involved in making good, evoking frames.
