I’ve been friends with Mike since I was a kid, and I truly enjoyed taking part in this wedding. I saw a ton of “blasts from the past”, and I had the pleasure of introducing my wife to people who didn’t even know I was married. It really made me think about how easy it is to lose touch, and that I need to not just rely on social media to keep in touch with people’s lives. I was amazed at how relaxed they were during their engagement session, which I will be blogging in the near future. For their wedding, these guys had an interesting approach – they didn’t try to plan out every detail, or even pretend like they had. They rolled with the punches and really it was a near-perfect day, all things considered. As long as you have a few friends who know what’s supposed to happen, and are willing to step in as needed, it can really be a low-stress event. As if the simple fact you are getting MARRIED is not enough stress, people! As always, I have a slideshow, and then some of my favorites. Enjoy!
I love the feel of this shot.
He cleans up nice.
My wife Masha is blowing my mind right now with what’s she’s getting out of our F/2.8 lenses. I need to buy some for her exclusive use!
I love this shot my wife took of me.
This wedding had a coin toss.
Trying to shoot romantic couples shots on a crowded beach was new challenge – oh, and we only had 10 minutes to do it all. I’m really happy with ’em anyway.
Me: Let’s sneak out to the courtyard for 5 minutes of perfect light. Them: OK!
The sunset was smashing.
The toasts were touching.
The groom’s parents, long time family friends. They had their own little “first dance”. Ever.
LOVED the cupcakes. And the mini-cake too.
This wedding reminded me that we didn’t have enough Journey at our wedding. It’s timeless music.

The shots are beautiful. I love the late sun on the Jane and Mike. And the shoe shot! Great work.
Thanks for sharing these photos! I’ve been friends with Jane since *we* were kids, and I just couldn’t make it out to the wedding. (Silly grad school.) I feel like I haven’t missed a step. I hope you enjoyed the day – it looks like it was an awesome event.
Great shots. I especially like the one at the beginning while she’s getting ready – you and your wife (in the reflection)look so cute photographing together, it almost looks synchronized.
