Sarah & Wes — Married!

As I mentioned in an earlier post (Something Borrowed, Something Blue), I photographed the wedding of two of my very best friends — the new Wes and Sarah Phillips — not too long ago.

Factoring in the beautiful location at the Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, Fla., fantastic weather right on the water, plus a gathering of 111 good people, and you’ve got a recipe for a perfect wedding. The bonus of having a great relationship with the bride and groom didn’t hurt either, as I got all the access I needed and could get away with things I wouldn’t dream of otherwise.

It was easily the hardest — and sometimes most stressful — weekend of work I’ve ever had, but also a tremendous honor to be part of the beginning of the rest of Wes and Sarah’s life together.

But enough rambling — here are some of my favorites from the day. (To see a wider selection, check out the full collection on my main website.)

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Over the weekend, I was honored to attend the wedding of two of my best friends, Mr. Wesley Phillips and his beautiful bride, Sarah Phillips (neé Howard).

Disclaimer: This post is not about their wedding photos (those will come later), but rather a little side project I set up in an auxiliary room. I basically built a large scale “photo booth,” using a blue backdrop that Sarah picked out to complement the color of her bridesmaids’ dresses, and a new Alien Bees ABR800 Ring Flash. This is hardly an original idea — in fact, I’m basically stealing it from a friend of mine, John DePrisco (http://www.photoboothstation.com).

With an open bar lowering inhibitions and the best group of friends anyone could ever ask for, the results of this photo booth were a resounding success.
