My niece Kailey got married last month. It was a pretty wedding, and reception.
The only sucky thing...my sister told our Dad to put his camera away. I think she didn't want him getting in the way of the paid photographer. She didn't tell me that, but I knew to stay clear of the paid photographer. I didn't get any great shots of the bride. You know how it is, hustle hustle. I do hope the paid photographer did a great job.
This one would have been good, had I used my camera, and not my phone. But they were like this for literally 2 seconds for me.
My niece with my nephews that were the ring bearers. Too bad we couldn't of gotten Emerson turned around!
A few dance shots:
I did get other family members though!
Meet my Dad and Mom! My Mom was off looking at the wedding party, so I snagged a single shot of my Dad. It was click, as fast as you can time.
My Dad, Isaak and Nephew Elijah (both age 11).
My Dad, Mom, Nephew Evan and Mica (both age14).
Mica and Nephew Evan (both age 14) being goofy! Mica loves to do this, for photos.

Then my sister Terra wanted me to shoot some photos of her family. Well, she kept wanting me to shoot photos. She wants to use one for her Christmas card. Try shooting a photo of 4 boys, one special needs that bobs around a lot. Lots of things going on! The other kids wanted to hang out, or play. I wasn't expecting this at all. By the time I shot a lot of her family, my kids were so done. I didn't even get shots of them alone, or with each other. I think I shot 20, or so of just her family. With Emerson, you almost need an assistant. The next day she was after me getting the photos to her. I love her, but wanted to scream.
An Us-ie of Isaak and I. Isaak got sick later that night. He slept late the next day, was sneezy, coughy, and didn't look good.
The highlight of the night wasn't the photos, it was the wedding, but also when my Uncle Dave was getting a beer - Travis and I started dancing with him all crazy like. He didn't honestly know what to do.
When was the last wedding that you went to?
How gorgeous! But I came looking for your Dali!!! ;)
I'm happy for you that you got a really nice family photo, even if you didn't get all the shots that you wanted. You did a fabulous job taking photos though! Thanks for hosting the link-up!
I have people ask me to take family photos all the time, then get pissed that I don't drop everything to get them all edited and sent over by the next day. These things take time and I am doing it for free, so be patient and grateful that I am even doing it at all.
My best friend asked if I would be the professional photographer for her son's wedding. I think I hurt her feelings when I told her no. If I am getting invited to the wedding, I want to sit there and enjoy myself, not stress out the whole time about getting good shots. Just let me be a guest! I would have happily done their engagement photos, but the bride ended up finding a professional who had an engagement and wedding package, so thankfully that got me off the hook.
Love the photos of your beautiful family, A! The boys look so handsome!
What nice photos and post
My best wishes to the happy couple :-)
