It’s true that one of the best things about being a wedding photographer is that you get to be around happy people on one of the most memorable days of their lives. You look forward to each and every weekend, no matter if it’s a venue you’ve seen a dozen times or it’s brand new to you, because the people and the personalities are always new. What’s also true is that sometimes you get that little extra from a couple, that certain something that makes a great day even better. Amanda and Adam, besides being two of the more laid-back and easy going couples I’ve had the privilege to work with, are very talented musicians. Me, being a tremendous fan of music and local musicians, was thrilled that their guest list was filled with people that I’d seen play many times. I also knew that it’d be one heck of a party.
So we were treated to Amanda and Adam playing their instruments, on stage, in their wedding clothes. There were LED hula hoops, and crazy dance floor props (unicorns and riding brooms?), and also one of our all-time favorite wedding musicians, Adrian Duke. So yeah, it was a great day.
