“I don’t think any of use are normal people.” —Wes Anderson

I had a blast putting together this Wes Anderson inspired wedding shoot with two of the coolest cats around!!!! You know it’s gonna be good, too, when the bride says “I may not have my legs shaved, it’s kind of a feminist thing.”

YES!

Rebecca is also a incredibly talented fiber artist who makes quilts and we used one of her works straight on the tablescape.

I had another indoor location in mind for this shoot, since March can bring such unpredictable weather.  So when I phoned and asked Prosek’s Greenhouse if they would mind if we poked around and did an impromptu wedding shoot at their location since the weather was so nice, I was stoked when they said ‘no problem.’

What I really wanted to showcase with this shoot was something off the beaten path, that was planned around the people, their style, attitude, and charisma.  As a ‘lifestyle’ photographer the most important thing at the end of the shoot is whether I captured something more than just an image.  Did I tell a story?  And did I tell it with the person’s spirit?

When thinking about your wedding, make sure it’s all about you.  That may mean it’s not on a trend, but based around styles you like, colors you dream and people you love!

THE TABLES TURNED

By William Wordsworth

Up! up! my Friend, and quit your books;
Or surely you’ll grow double:
Up! up! my Friend, and clear your looks;
Why all this toil and trouble?

The sun, above the mountain’s head,
A freshening lustre mellow
Through all the long green fields has spread,
His first sweet evening yellow.

Books! ’tis a dull and endless strife:
Come, hear the woodland linnet,
How sweet his music! on my life,
There’s more of wisdom in it.

And hark! how blithe the throstle sings!
He, too, is no mean preacher:
Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your Teacher.

She has a world of ready wealth,
Our minds and hearts to bless—
Spontaneous wisdom breathed by health,
Truth breathed by cheerfulness.

One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.

Sweet is the lore which Nature brings;
Our meddling intellect
Mis-shapes the beauteous forms of things:—
We murder to dissect.

Enough of Science and of Art;
Close up those barren leaves;
Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.

Just Before the Spring…

 

“I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.” —Steve Southerland
