JUNE 8, 2009
Yesterday I assisted my friend Melissa Manseau, of Life’s Big Events, at a wedding she was photographing in Kennebunkport. I’ve spent my career doing news, corporate, and commercial photography. Except for the occasional wedding I’ve photographed for a friend, I haven’t done much in this arena. I had quite an enjoyable time, though, at this assignment. It was a picture-perfect day, and the temperature was mild. The event was at the Nonantum Resort, a charming inn right on the water. I’ve driven past there hundreds of times, but it was the first time I ever walked the grounds.
While Melissa photographed the bride getting ready, I took the groom and his groomsmen outside for a portrait session. They were relaxed, but they all seemed quite reserved. The ceremony was tasteful and elegant. I was delighted, then, to capture this photo of the bride, Meredith, and the groomsmen after the ceremony, when their comical characters were revealed as Melissa took them out on the dock for a portrait shoot.
