Winter wedding at Wildberry Farm in Marion, SC

This was my first time photographing a wedding at Wildberry Farm in Marion. It’s very similar to another old farm location I loved from a previous wedding.  Wildberry Farm is a very pretty area with a small wedding chapel, house for the bride to get ready in, and a very large reception area.  They have a couple of old barns that also make for some good photo spots. It’s unusual for me to have a wedding in the middle of January, I’m glad the weather turned out so nice even if it was a little cold in the evening.

The pictures in this blog post are picked out a little differently from normal. The bride picked out her album selections very quickly after the wedding, so instead of picking out just what I like for this blog post, the pictures below are almost all the bride’s picks for her album. I actually removed a few family pictures and personal things like that, and added a couple I liked that the bride didn’t pick.  I’ve learned that clients sometimes look at the pictures differently than I do. I might like a picture that has the most interesting lighting, or a special out of focus background, something that is technically interesting or different.  Of course a bride is looking more for pictures that make her look her best or that show the emotions of her family and friends. Being a photographer is always a balance between wanting to shoot something interesting or different while making sure you are always thinking about what the client wants first.

I’m also still having a lot of fun with my drone. I have the same one that just crashed on the White House lawn so I hope they don’t end up making these illegal. I’ll post another panorama from Huntington State Park at the end of the pictures. I’m always careful not to fly close to people and everyone just seems really interested when they see me flying it. One older photographer I met at the park said he is getting one for sure. I hope you enjoy the pictures below, please like this post or comment below if you do.
