I had the great pleasure of helping document Liz and Michael’s wedding Saturday with three other photographers.
Liz is a talented young photographer who works with two of my friends. She photographs and shoots Super 8 movies with Richard Israel and works as studio manager for Kristin Vining. So we teamed up to collaborate on coverage and also got help from another friend, Rodney Slate, a Greensboro area photographer who runs Autumn Song Photography. Richard also shoots film and he used a variety of film formats including 35mm, medium format and even broke out his Speed Graphic to shoot 4X5 portraits.
It was so nice to see the love and faith displayed by both families and everyone was so easy to work with. Michael’s father is the minister at CrossWay Community Church and he performed the service.
Each photographer has their own distinct style and it was fun to see how we all approached photographing the day. While we all draw from different genres at times, Richard is know for his incredible fine art sensibility, Kristin has a fun, fashion-oriented approach and Rodney is more of a quiet observer. And I utilize a very documentary, photojournalistic style in my photography. Richard, who was the main photographer on the shoot, plans to create a website of the coverage to demonstrate each photographer’s style.
It was great fun working and sharing with these talented photographers and we couldn’t have had better subject matter.
Congratulations Liz and Michael – I think you are going to have one spectacular wedding album!
