Everyone in the pool

I had a really fun wedding a couple of weeks ago.  It was for Jason and Aracely from the website blog twobackpackers.com.  You really should check out their adventures backpacking around the world, there are some nice pictures and stories on the blog.  The groom and I got along really well as he is also very interested in photography, so we ended up talking about it a lot.  I was showing him how great the Nikon D700 is in the low light at the reception, if you haven’t used a full frame camera before, ISO6400 is pretty amazing.  This wedding was at a beach house in Myrtle Beach, with a pool in the back. I’ve never been to a wedding before where the groom actually threw the bride in the pool.  I just wish he had warned me he was going to do it, I wasn’t quick enough to get the shot until they were already in the pool.  Later in the evening everyone ended up either jumping in the pool, or getting thrown in, including the DJ.  It was a wedding I won’t forget. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures below.

  1. Excellent photos Ryan! I wish I knew I was going to throw her in at that point too, but it sort of just happened. No one was able to capture it on video or photo. Oh well, it was still great. Seems like everyone had a great time and your photography of it all was excellent. Thanks.

  2. It was a great wedding I was one of the 3 people who didn’t end up in
    the pool! My favorite guest shot is the DJ (red shirt) jumping in the pool. Love the walking in the sunset of the bride and groom.
