BELL STREET TAVERN WEDDING | MADELINE ISLAND WEDDING | CANDID WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Lane and David were made for candid images.
When talking about what they wanted from their day, it all came down to just living it. They wanted three posed portraits – that’s it. Three. And beyond that, the entire premise was to just live their life, and not have to look at or smile for a camera.
I’m often told by couples, “we don’t really want to do family photos, but kind of feel like we have to”. And a lot of couples honestly feel that way. Lane and David even expressed to me – “it’s true that your wedding is your day and all about you – but you can’t ignore tradition and the people around you, and you have to balance what everybody wants”.
So maybe, if you imagine your day to be less posed and more candid, you can create a list of just three posed images, take a few requests, and then move on with your day. After all, you’ve got cake to eat and a dance floor to hit.
A few moments to look for in this story? Walking down the staircase, adorned in a map of the island. A first look from across the yard. Tousling of the hair times ten. A secret letter and a shared beer. Peeking at arriving guests. A full 360 to see everybody when walking back down the aisle. The “oh shit we just did that” face. Killer dance moves and a flash mob. And so much more.
