This is probably my favorite “tilt-shift candid” I’ve taken. The groom, named Cristian, prays during his wedding ceremony in Viña Santa Rita – Copiapo, Chile. Thanks to Kyle Hepp for having Tatiana and I tag along for this gorgeous wedding. She’s just posted more photos and the slideshow on her blog: http://www.kylehepp.com/2014/03/matrimonio-vina-santa-rita-2/

Merion Wedding: Amanda and Glenn

Normally I have to just tell you that a wedding rocked, and you have to just believe me. Did it really rock, or did it just look like fun for 1/250th of a second at a time?

You can trust me, but this time you don’t have to — I have proof. Chandeliers tell no lies, and Amanda and Glenn’s wedding rocked the Merion so hard the darned thing looked ready to come down.

Passionate, fun, and ready to tear the foundations off a building with merriment — these are my kind of people. Thanks to Dustin Finn for assisting the mayhem (and spotting the chandelier).

Joe and Lisa’s Wedding at the Merion

Great clients come from all walks of life — I still remember shooting the wedding of two chiropractors when I started rubbing my wrist and six people jumped up to adjust me. But who could be a better client for a wedding photographer than … another wedding photographer? It’s always a pleasure to shoot another photographer’s wedding — they have a lot of options to choose from, so it means they’re on board with whatever you want to do. And I don’t even have to tell you we had fun — a quick glance at the photos will show you more than I could say. Lisa was a bundle of emotions, from her fantastic smile to no small bit of tears. But really, all you need to know about these two is that they did a fist-bump during their Catholic cermeony. Awesome.

And their reception at the Merion was as wild, emotional, and intense a celebration as I’ve seen. And given that most of my weddings seem to be in a constant competition for craziest dancing, that says a lot.
