Engagement Photos and a Wedding Website

I suppose it’s to be expected that I would be asked by my sister Shannon to shoot engagement photos for her wedding website! It’s not the first time, nor the second, that I’ve been her personal photographer-slash-lackey. What else is a big brother supposed to do?

(Oh yeah: Code the back-end of the wedding site and get it up and running; Be a groomsman and give a brotherly roast/toast; Shoot event photos the night before the wedding; Help set things up before wedding and break things down afterwards; Take the newlyweds to the airport; Feed the cat while they’re on their honeymoon; Pick them up at the airport…. Anything else?)

For those of you who follow Shannon, she has the most keen and creative eye, and each and every detail is important. I think that’s why she knew she could come to me with her concept of cutout engagement photos overlaid with colorful shapes, which you can see in several of the images below. We shot her and Hal against a green screen for most of the photos, in a variety of outfits and actions, and later did a second shoot outdoors, at our old elementary school.

In the end, the final images can be seen here. I’ll probably get in trouble with Shannon for including a few others here on my site that didn’t make the cut, but annoying little sisters is another thing older brothers do, right?
