This was taken in August, 2009, at Woodland Park in Kalispell, Montana (USA), with a Nikon CoolPix P80 camera. Picture is straight from the camera.

I haven’t had a chance to go through all my wedding photos yet, but I thought I would introduce you to Shaun’s new wife, Anita. This is my favorite portrait of her, taken during the ceremony. There were more people there, taking pictures, than there were in the wedding party. I only managed to get a couple photos without another photographer in it.

This was my second foray into wedding photography. The only problem was the bride’s parents, who had video cameras and stood almost nose to nose with the bride and groom. Out of seven cameras at the event, there were only a few clear pictures, that didn’t show the parents taking pictures. Next time I do a wedding, I’m going to make sure that there is a clause keeping everyone else out of the way.

I love the expression on Ann’s face here. It’s more thoughtful than the usual “blushing bride” look that we expect. We have been superblessed to have Ann in the family. She’s not only beautiful, she’s sweet, smart (she has a master’s degree in psychology) and she cooks authentic Indian food! What more could I ask for?

    It is a beautiful image, despite the parents and their video equipment. Love her eyelashes thru the veil, and the turn of her head. Lovely!

  • Thank-you! This is one of my favorites.
