Nick & Leo’s Wedding, continued

After the portrait session, I switched gears into the wedding photojournalist mode.  Now I got to be the fly on the wall, capturing the mood and emotions of the day.

It was a bit chilly, but we were fortunate that it stopped drizzling before the ceremony since it was outdoors.

I really liked their color scheme and elegant table settings.

I don’t really understand this tradition, but I’ve seen it a few times now where a group of guys grab the groom during the first dance, lift him up, take off his shoe, and cut a hole in his sock.

They had a Danish band (with the unlikely name of Miami) which was excellent, and everyone was clearly having a great time.

The photo ops got even better when they passed out the silly hats.  This was the first time I’d seen this at a wedding, and I hope it’s not the last because people clearly got a kick out of it, and it made for great pictures.

Nick & Leo’s Wedding Portraits

Filed under: Portraits, weddings — Tags: , , , — norekefoto @ 3:45 pm

I had the opportunity to photograph my first gay wedding this spring.  Of course, in any way that really matters, it wasn’t any different than any other wedding, but that said, no two weddings are the same.  This wedding was at Häckeberga Castle in Skåne (Sweden), one of my favorite wedding venues.  I’ll admit that I was a bit apprehensive about posing the portraits.  A lot of the  traditional poses felt too feminine.  It turned out that these guys were such a pleasure to work with that we soon got into a rhythm that everyone was comfortable with.
