This was my first real shoot with my 5D Mark II! It actually got rescheduled due to the torrential downpours Utah was experiencing. I heard that out of 17 days it rained 12 of them. What is this?? So I actually had to leave my sister while she was in labor to do this shoot, lol (the baby still didn't come for nearly another day).
I met Karen last year on a trip to Mexico with a non-profit group called Kaiizen. They go with huge groups of mostly college students to orphanages down there and put on parties for the kids along with service such as building schools and painting murals. I can still remember Karen talking all about Chandler on the drive down there :). The trips are always a lot of fun and a great way to meet awesome people! Awesome people like Karen.
I hope she doesn't hate me some day for saying that :). After 3 days of trying to get this picture we finally succeeded. By the way, don't try and make her do something she doesn't want to do.
Here are the rest of the pictures from Robyn and Kevin's awesome wedding! I think I told her about 50 times, but I LOVE her dress. I love that it's not white and I would totally wear it myself. If only I was tall enough to get away with flat shoes though :).
Robyn really loves sun flares. The the day we shot their engagements it was raining. No sun. Then the evening before the wedding when we did the pre-wedding pics, it was overcast. No sun. At the temple the sun was far too overhead to get good sun flare, so on the way back to Ramona for the reception we stopped at this field. And got several of these (not without about 87 prickly things attaching themselves to my legs and dress or ants crawling through her bouquet, but I think it was worth it).
I always love the dancing pictures :).
I know I'm a day late, but better late than never, right?? And a super special Happy Father's Day to the newest father in my family, here with his 7-day-old little monkey.
I got to go all the way to San Diego for Robyn and Kevin's wedding! I really love Southern California and they took me to an awesome beach for some pictures and a first look the evening before the wedding. It was super super overcast and we lost the light pretty quickly, but we got a lot of awesome shots in!
