Two Wheels Become One: No Golf Ballz for You

After we gallivanted around town, the wedding party hopped back into the limos and we headed to the reception venue. We had a few things on our agenda before the actual reception started:

  1. Check out the reception setup before the guests started going in.
  2. Get more wedding-party photos on the golf course.
  3. Enjoy the cocktail hour.
  4. Get couples photos on the golf course.

We actually did the tasks in that order, but I’m going to blog out of order, if you don’t mind. So first up, let’s take a look at the wonderful wedding-party photos! We didn’t get many at the reception venue because A) we had already taken a bunch at the alternate location and B) we weren’t allowed to go on the actual golf course until it was closed to golfers (I guess they didn’t believe me when I promised not to sue for golf-ball-related head injuries). So the wedding party had to take photos closer to the actual building. I hadn’t found out about this rule until we got close to the wedding, and by then I was a total nut job and furious that we wouldn’t be able to get golf-course shots of everyone. (I’m not even into golfing. I’m just into being a bitchy nut job.) Our photographer once again came to the rescue and discovered some amazing photo spots that weren’t in close proximity to flying ballz [insert ball joke here].

In case you’re not keeping track, my photographer has already made a parking lot and a crowded street fest look good. And if you want to go waaay back in time, she made a packed art museum look empty too.

For example, this was just some boring old hill that she did amazing things with. You’ll see even more in the next post.

So. Much. Fake. Cheering.

And of course we had to get some sibling shots because we hadn’t done this with the family or wedding-party pics yet.

Old roommates. Sigh. I miss college. Take me back, college! Why can’t I quit you??

Then it was time to walk back to the cocktail hour!

You can see what kind of landscape we were actually working with. I have no idea how our photographer made it look so good.

Are you worried about underwhelming photo backdrops?

    This is one of my fears mrs uni, we have amazing photo locations but once we get to the venue I was worried thank you for showing me what great photographers can do

    I guess that’s what makes a great photographer. Mine actually said that the location of the photographs is secondary, the magic is in the quality of the picture itself and the ability to capture the people in it.

    Your photos just keep getting better – I love how happy and relaxed you look in these! So glad you got past the initial stress – it looks like you’re really having a good time by this point.
