Emma + Aaron
10/10/2015 Las Vegas, Nevada
This past weekend I attended the wedding party of two beautiful young people. I was a guest both as a friend and a photographer, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything was awesome - the string lights, the cocktails, the 90's trippy music, and above all, Emma and Aaron's lovely family and cool friends - a bunch of unique and interesting people who were a real treat to meet and spend time with.
The bride was ethereal and exquisite. Emma, you rocked the fresh face/barefoot look, and I enjoyed every single of your goofy picture faces.
The groom was proud and dapper. Aaron, you were a great host and that bow tie was the shit.
Most importantly, both lovebirds were chill and happy. Congrats, guys!
I absolutely adore each and every portrait I took. At some point I put priority on having fun over taking photos, so there aren't many of them, but I've rarely been happier with a shoot. I think it's because no one was interested in posing and the images turned out as candid as the people.
Plus, man, that lens. The last time I rented the 24mm, f/1.4 Nikkor I fell in love with it and I just can't get enough. It is the lens equivalent of myself, I think. It seems thick, wide and heavy, but it produces the sharpest focus and the softest background, like, ever.
My personal favorite shots must be smiling Emma and the kiss.
