Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Tara and Adam’s Wedding – Sneak Peak June 30, 2008

So, folks, I made it through a very long day. I was friend, candid wedding photographer, and “pseudo” wedding assistant for my lovely friend Tara for the day.

I’ve been in and to so many weddings that it felt natural being able to help out for the day. It was SOOOO hot out but we made it through the day without anyone melting… LOL

I arrived early and photographed the ladies getting all beautified at the salon, went back to Tara’s parent’s house and photographed everyone getting ready and quickly got ready myself. The official wedding photographer arrived and took his formal shots, I followed them to the church and I photographed as much of that as I could there, then we all headed to Spring Lake for formal bridal party and then a quick stop at Spring Lake beach for photos of just Tara & Adam.

After the formal photos we headed to the reception in a beautiful ballroom looking over the ocean. When the night ended I drove the bride and groom back to the hotel, we all gathered at the hotel bar, eventually got some sleep, and all met at 10am yesterday for a great breakfast in the hotel lobby.

I took about 1500 photos (not sure if that’s the real total…I’m still counting *LOL*) They will me take forever to edit but I’ll get it done!

This is my favorite of the day:

I couldn’t help applying a texture. Thanks, Heather, for the original coloring underneath this texture.

  1. Lighting & exposure are top notch Jen. I love your texture on the “albumen” conversion…and them kissing is so beautiful. What a gorgeous couple and moment between them.

    As always, I cannot wait to see more from this wedding…

    How’s that ankle holding up???
