Just before the end of 2013, I flew to Key West to be in the wedding of my good friend Amy. I've known her now for almost 17 years (that seems impossible!), and was honored to be a part of her day. Key West was lovely, she was beautiful, and the wedding was so much fun. Being IN the wedding, I couldn't take as many photos as I wanted, and because I couldn't carry around my DSLR all of these photos were taken with my iPhone, using the Camera+ app. But we know that any good photographer makes due with what she has, right?
Let me also start this post by saying that their wedding photographer, David Champagne, is amazing. Please check out his website and his facebook page - he does amazing work, and was such a wonderful guy. It was really great to see him work, and learn some from him! He's posted their first sneak peeks as well. I stayed out of his way, and felt fortunate to get a few shots of my own.
When we got to Amy's mom's house to get ready that morning, he had placed her dress in this door for photos. Could you have asked for a better location or light?!
I love how her dress rippled in the back!Amy and Alex did their "first look" photos a few hours before the wedding. So, they saw each other for the first time privately, had photos taken, and then we did all of the wedding party photos at the site. I couldn't take any photos then, obviously, but was able to grab a few later as I escorted them around Key West. They had planned with David to go to 4 different sites to take photos together, and needed a driver - I was happy to oblige! Plus, I was able to sneak a few fun shots of them. I really love this one that I took from the front seat of the car.
