Reception at Ripley’s Aquarium

This past weekend I had a reception a bit different than I’ve ever done before.  It was held at the Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach.  The actual wedding ceremony was at Springmaid Beach Resort.  Ripley’s was a little disappointing, I was expecting to have the aquarium pools as the background to the reception, however you could walk in among the crowds of people in the main aquarium area and take pictures.   It really challenged my skills with the camera trying to get good pictures in the dark with a fish tank behind the couple, I think the silhouette below was one of the best.  I actually tripped on some steps and hurt my knee a bit, of course I had to act like I didn’t.  I saved the camera which is what is important.  I hope you enjoy the pictures.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    I am so sorry about your knee… you definitely played that off like it was nothing! It was really so great working with you. You adapted to the surroundings really well and got some fantastic shots. I knew the aquarium would be a challenge with regards to photos. I don't think anyone would be able to tell after looking at our gallery.

    Thanks again!


  2. Hi Ryan,

    Denise :)
