A few weeks ago I was asked to step in as photography at the wedding party of a lovely couple, Bob and Lucia. Their actual wedding had taken place in Vegas with a very small number of guests, and so this was a party for everyone who had not attended the big day itself. It was such a lovely, relaxed evening, revolved around family and friends, dancing and music and wine. There was nothing formal about it, or even remotely ‘wedding-ish’ in the traditional sense; there was no schedule to keep, it was simple a chance for everyone to get together for a good time, and to celebrate Bob and Lucia’s relationship. That was exactly how they requested for the images to look too: candid, natural, almost documentary to replace the traditional ‘formal wedding shots’ of most weddings. This was therefore easily the easiest
wedding reception that I have ever shot. The amount of pressure that is instantly lifted from such a wonderfully relaxed couple who simply wanted someone to capture their evening quietly, having a laugh and a joke with their guests.
I just wanted to share a selection of images from the evening with you. With permission from Bob and Lucy, of course.
