Winter wedding at Wildberry Farm in Marion, SC

This was my first time photographing a wedding at Wildberry Farm in Marion. It’s similar to another old farm location I loved from a previous wedding. Wildberry Farm is a beautiful area with a small wedding chapel, a house for the bride to get ready, and a huge 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 lovely, 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 removed a few family pictures and personal things and added a couple I liked that the bride didn’t pick. I’ve learned that clients sometimes look at the images differently than I do. I might like a picture with the most exciting lighting or a unique out-of-focus background, something technically interesting or different. Of course, a bride is looking more for photos 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 exciting 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 crashed on the White House lawn, so I hope they don’t make 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; everyone seems 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.
