most of these were taken by the ever talented shyla. i love the details of uniforms and sabres and covers and medals so much that i decided to give them their own post. (also, because there are fewer of them, and i don’t need to say as much about them, so it’s easier to procrastinate on crafting the main post about this wedding by, uh…doing something else.) but stay tuned, it should be coming soon!
choosing to add a 2nd shooter onto your coverage ensures that you will receive even richer and more detailed coverage. when i am shooting alone, i always make sure to pay attention to those little details i know people have put so much time and care into, but when i’m a second shooter, i know those are my main focus! for instance, many of these images are things shyla saw while i was seeing the bigger picture or wrangling groups together for the requisite mantle shot or getting the shot that would definitely be missed if it weren’t taken. i don’t always have time to focus in on the hilt of the sabre or the major’s oak leaf…but going through the images later, they add so much to capturing the feel of the day.
i’m not gonna lie…i do SO love to make a groomsman (or even better–the groom!) hold the bouquet…and this is just 100x’s better because it’s a tough marine in uniform.
(and for the curious ones…all of these are shyla’s except the 2nd one down, 4th one down on the left, and the bottom 2. isn’t she amazing?! i (and nicki & shane) were so lucky to have her talent and eye with us!)
