While Boulder, Colorado is my home away from home (since I gave birth to my daughter there) this shoot out-of-state adventure was the perfect way to kickoff this wedding! Not having the opportunity to personally meet the family prior to their wedding day, I attended the rehearsal dinner. It gave me a chance to introduce myself and capture some photos of this special event in their life they otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity to record.
// STORYTELLERS TIP //
Pay attention to the details. When photographing an event, pay attention to experience around you. Chances are there are some fantastic details (like the G.I. Joe's lining the picnic tables at this event in honor of the Groom's military service). The organizers of the event put a lot of time into these ideas and it's truly what makes the experience unlike any other. Capture a few photos of them and share them. The organizers of the event will thank you for noticing.
