Shannon and Enrique: A Preview

with 20 comments

Shannon and Enrique are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I’ve actually known the bride since kindergarden, and we’ve gone to the same schools all the way through 12th grade! Talk about going WAY back. ย It was an honor to photograph the wedding of these two beautiful people yesterday. Here’s a little preview:

(the following spread is very large and my not load on portable devices)

The entire event was refreshingly short, simple, and laid back. Wonderfully so, in fact. This was easily one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to. I especially loved grabbing shots of people crowding around a little make-shift photo booth the bride and groom set up:

They told us to give it a try to…how could we not? =)

Congrats you two! May you have a wonderful, happy life together. And now to process the rest of the day’s images o_O

See this preview along with a few more images in high-resolution on my website’s gallery page:

  4. Wow, you are SO quick to post!! Beautiful set of photos!! Really enjoyed them. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a bride dress in a traditional Chinese silk dress during the reception. Great job! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Jonathan, The pictures are so incredibly beautiful! You certainly captured their love for each other. Who would have thought that a crosswalk or the front of a bus would be fabulous backgrounds for the pictures?? You and Bridget were wonderful. As mother of the bride, it brought tears to my eyes (good tears). I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures.

    • Sandra,

      I must say, I was thrilled when your daughter contacted me to shoot this wedding. Being there brought back so many childhood memories! It was great to see all of you again, and I’m so happy you like the photos so far. These two are so sweet together, I just might shed tears myself! =)

  17. Oh by the way, how did you create one very large JPEG file with lots of images? The other wedding thread I checked out was mostly individual pictures, so you did something different on this one. I’m just curious… thanks!
