Documentary Wedding Photography

As a documentary photographer, I don’t often end up doing weddings.   When a friend asked me to take candid pictures at her wedding reception, though, I agreed. This couple is as happy as they come, clearly thrilled to be together and to be starting out in marriage.  Their reception was a blast, all the way from the ring ceremony, to the Oldies Band and dancing, to the delicious cake, hilarious shoe game, and colorful pinata.  :)
