When doing event photography, it's always like Christmas looking through the images afterwards. With portrait sessions I generally have an idea of what the finished product will look like, but at events, you never know what is going to happen!
That's why when I was scanning through images from my brother's wedding reception, this one totally caught my eye.
For one, my brother has some sort of weird aversion to cameras. It's like when a camera comes within 50 ft of him, his face looks funny & not at all like himself. But in this one? He looks totally like himself. I also love the busyness of the image & the lighting. It really describes the moment & feeling of the evening.
Wait... I should explain... I have 3 brothers... this isn't the one who just got married. And the little girl in his arms, as well as the blondie behind him are his daughters.
**Edited again to add: NOT the blondie on banjo-- that's his dad. Our dad. The blondie in the gray shirt... whew... this is getting complicated.**
At any rate, I love this picture because not only does he look just like himself, but he's smiling a genuine smile. And his precious baby girl-- she'll turn 2 in a few weeks, but is still small for her age. But oh, she's such a fighter! And so intellectual... I'm kind of scared what she'll say when she starts talking!
Just as a reference point, this is a picture taken of them last year by Blue Frame Photography when we had our large family picture made! If you're in WNC looking for a great photographer, I definitely recommend them!
