Nuptials – Image 3/10

I mentioned earlier that this series of images was photographed and used as part of our wedding decor. As we became more involved with planning our wedding, many questions surfaced of what the day meant to us and how we wanted to remember it. We knew from the beginning that we wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception, but we also wanted a lot of natural elements with a personal touch and uniqueness to the design. We certainly didn’t want anything cookie-cutter or status-quo. Therefore, since we’re both photographers, it seemed natural that we somehow incorporated photography into the design.
.
With this in mind, we tossed concepts around and eventually settled on photographing flowers and plants from our garden. This added another layer of uniqueness to the images other than simply being created by us. Additionally, I owned an old large format 4×5 film camera that had been modified to accept a special lens, which is what creates the dreamy shallow depth of field. The previous two images expresses this characteristic very well, and this photo of a camellia flower displays it with a more subtle touch.
