He was hesitant to ask, and I felt kind of weird to just offer to do it, but in the end it was an easy decision to shoot my little bro's wedding. Set at a vineyard just outside of Duncan, BC, it was a bit of a risky move to have an outdoor wedding, in May, in the Pacific Northwest. In the end, it was a beautiful, sunny day with some of my favorite people.
With a smaller event and no bridal party, we had a nice and relaxed time getting the 'formals' done after the family photos. After a short drive to some random field, we ducked through a break in the fence and lugged a short bench out into the middle. It was a little bit odd to direct my brother and his new bride through the different 'newlywed' poses, but in the end, the shots turned out the way we hoped. It was a little tough to play photographer while also playing big brother, son, husband, father (the whole family was there, of course) but the low-key wedding made the line easier to walk.
All photos taken with my Pentax K-3II and K-5 bodies. Lenses were the Pentax DA* 50-135mm f2.8, DA* 16-50mm 2.8, FA 50mm f1.4, and Sigma Art 30mm f1.4.
