This past weekend I helped photograph a wedding in Sundance, Utah for Nick Sokoloff. The morning weather was ominous and grey and I was hoping that the weather would clear up – and it did.
As second photographer my job was to photograph the Groom and Groomsmen as they prepared for the wedding and then to get some awesome group shots. This wedding was following the tradition of bride and groom would not see each other before the ceremony. So we had to be uber aware of where the bride, bridesmaids and Nick were at all times so that me the groom and groomsmen would not bump into each other.
And I love this photo because of the symmetry. And the classic summer colors are just gorgeous.
And I know I shouldn’t comment but something needs to be done to help the groom stand out a little. It is easy to pick the bride out from the bridesmaids, but to pick the groom out from the groomsmen is a challenge. Like Jerry Seinfeld joked – the reason the men dress the same is so if there is anything that happens to the groom the men just take one step over and the best man becomes the groom. That is why the priest says “do you take this man?”
