{Becky & Dave’s Wedding}

“Everything’s better with zombies…”
―    
Lily Herne,           Deadlands   

 

Believe it or not, I was shooting a wedding this fall and I barely survived a zombie apocalypse!
OK, maybe “apocalypse” is too strong a phrase…it was more like a zombie invasion.
Well, not an “invasion” exactly. It was more like I survived being at Becky and Dave’s Halloween themed wedding and having zombies serve me drinks and dinner….but it felt pretty perilous!!!

 

You may recognize Becky as one of my intrepid assistants; naturally, Machado Photography was there  for her & Dave’s big day.  And what a wild day! Becky and Dave pulled out all of the stops to make their dream wedding come true!

 

It was a photographer’s dream too! There was just so much for me to point my camera at! Aside from the amazing bride & groom, there were guests in costumes, elaborate peacock feathers, men in kilts, a cemetery photo setting, vibrant autumn leaves, disembodied hands, skeletons, witches, vintage movie posters, costume contest, riverfront photos….And if that weren’t enough to keep me busy, there was a Halloween photo booth set up, waiters made up as zombies and a million other little details to focus my lens on!

 

In spite of (or because of!?!) the whole zombie apocalypse thing, everyone had an unforgettable day, and no doubt this wedding will be a stand-out memory for all of the guests, Machado Photography, and, of course, Dave & Becky.

 

Congratulations and all the best for a lifetime of happiness together, Mr. & Mrs. Ramshaw!

 

Here’s a Photographer’s tip:
Did you notice how many different settings were used for Becky & Dave’s photos? It’s a great idea to look around your wedding & reception venues before the big day so that you can pick out the scenery you’d like to have in the background to set the mood for your pictures. We are going to take a lot (A LOT!!!) of pictures on your wedding day, and you don’t want them to all look too similar! Unless I’ve been to your venue before, I don’t know that there’s a really unusual tree behind the church or that there’s a bench in a park across the street that you like unless you tell me! Something as innocent looking as a fence can provide an interesting backdrop (as you can see!), as can a brick wall, a sign, a church window, some steps….and don’t forget inside options too! Is there something inside the reception venue that you think is unique? I can happily work it into some photos! I am full of ideas, but so are you! There is no right or wrong!
