Oh my hell you guys – this was one MAGICAL damn day.
I’ll let the pics do most of the talking.
Meet you at the bottom of the post… : )
Ya huh…you’re seeing that right…there were fireworks. Honest to goodness REAL and GIANT fireworks!! They were kept a complete surprise until right before they popped and the crowd reaction was awesome! I too was thrilled and awestruck (who doesn’t love fireworks!?) but from a photography stand point I had a full blown panic attack. I’ve never photographed fireworks before but I knew from reading about it at some point in my travels that you really need a tripod (for the slow shutter speed) and while I had brought a tripod with me to Big Sky I hadn’t had trudged it along with me to the ceremony. So I did my very best and to say I was relieved when it was all over and I saw on the view finder that some shots came out I was pretty much squealing. (Never a dull moment!)
This entire weekend was incredible for me. For starters the bride is the step daughter of someone who is SUPER special to me. Getting to share this day with her and capture it was a true honor, as she was one of my biggest supporters from the start of this crazy journey (ya know, back when I had NO CLUE what I was doing.) Both Lindsey and Eli were a dream to work with and their families and friends were some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Along with all of that my little family got a fun get away to Big Sky and we made some memories of our own.
Lindsey, Eli, Greg and Cindy, thank you thank you for letting me part of this amazing day – I’ll never forget it. : )
