Log Haven Shenaniganry
November 4, 2016
I don't even know where to begin with this wedding. Lauren and Michael had prepared everything so beautifully at their Log Haven venue, the fall colors were beginning to show, and everything came together serenely for the ceremony. Log Haven's stunning deck overlook provided a backdrop of evergreens while the happy couple said their vows, and there were more than a few tears shed before they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife. We sneaked away for a few moments to snap some portraits and to give them some breathing room, but once we got back, the party started. And by started, I mean was already in full swing. The whole crowd let loose with dancing and general ruckus--I don't think I've photographed a rowdier crowd. It was great. Also, everyone there knew how to dance the Footloose dance (??). Anyway, take a look at some of my favorite shots from the day below.
Doing anything Nov. 16? Of course not, it's a Wednesday. So head up to Salt Lake City and participate in the Documentary Project Fund's Holiday Print Fundraiser. I'll have a few prints up for sale and all proceeds go toward funding the project's grants that it awards to documentary still photographers several times a year.
A heavy metal band showed up at an engagement shoot in the woods and made it spectacular.
The Cubs won the World Series! And comparing the morning-after cover shots of Chicago's two largest papers, The Chicago Sun-Times (which fired its entire photo staff including a Pulitzer Prize-winner three years ago), and the Chicago Tribune (which kept its photo staff) has many arguing the value of the full-time photojournalist and photo editor.
