With Gusto

It’s a wedding, have some fun. I certainly have been.

The top one reminds me of something crossing my mind recently. Somewhere around now I’ve crossed the threshold of shooting my 250th wedding. It’s been interesting to see what aspects of growth are in photography, and what are specifically wedding expertise, whether it’s the comfort of a wedding feeling like your natural habitat or just having learned every lesson the hard way. I once was on a bumpy trolly ride with a bride and groom when the bride had someone pour her a Solo cup of Coca-Cola.

“Hey, how about I take that and give you this Sprite?” I said, aping my best David Tutera.

Two minutes later, a big bump in the road, and there was Sprite on the dress. No biggie. Coca-Cola? Probably a biggie.

So when Chika wanted an ice cream, my first thought was “OK, let’s have some fun.” My second thought was, “That’s a Vera Wang. You get the coconut.”

Of course, the lower shot was taken in Mexico, where all bets were off.

You’ll see. Oh, you’ll see.
