PERFECT SUNRISE FOR THE PERFECT COUPLE.
I’m not a morning person. Never was, and I don’t think I never will be. So when a couple comes knocking on my door with plans for a sunrise wedding, fear strikes me as though I’m about to go over the top of a roller coaster. But that fear suddenly disappears when I realize that I’m getting paid, and most of all, taking part in a truly special occasion.
Enter Leland and Kathy, a young couple who had a small dilemma. Kathy wanted sunset photographs, but also wanted to attend the Paradise Cove Luau, which also started at sunset. She first asked if she could get married at sunrise, and if it were possible to book me for a sunset photography session on another day. Yes, she could do that. And I’m pretty sure most wedding companies would agree to this proposition as it meant more money. But the truth was that she didn’t another session as sunrise photos, pretty much turn out looking like sunset photos.
From there, the plan was set into action. Kathy would tie the knot in the morning on the east coast, and then head to the west coast for the luau at sunset.
There was no complications with their wedding on the day of their wedding. In fact, Leland and Kathy, and her family, arrived early. The only thing that was apparent, everyone was a little groggy, including myself, who only had two hours of sleep from the night before. I tried to go to sleep early, but I just couldn’t…it happens all the time.
Back to film. Film has a natural unprocessed look to making pictures look a little warm.
Leland and Kathy also hired me to shoot three camera video coverage of their ceremony.
