So when I found out that Bobby and his childhood friends were all comedians my first thought was, ”awesome! This is gonna be a great wedding to shoot!” Then I thought about it a bit and started in a bit of a panic….”This is a roomful of very funny people… and I am in that room…. and I am a wedding photographer… It could really be a long night.”
Alas, my fears were assuaged and Emily, Bobby, their families and friends put one one of the most fun, and funny, nights I’ve had in a while. Seeing the speakers turn the Apawamis Club into a comedy club was something I won’t soon forget.
This wedding reinforced for me the way I try to approach weddings. Quite simply, you just have to sit back and let people be who they are. Don’t direct too much, let them be themselves. If you can do that, you will capture them in a way that they will undoubtably love.
