Taking pictures again

Today I am headed to the city for my friend Kirsten’s wedding reception. Her and her now husband Rob got married in Cabo San Lucas on June 12 and are having a large reception for friends and family that weren’t able to join them on their wedding day. We were excited to go and be a part of the celebration but just a few days ago Kirsten asked me if I would be willing to take some pictures of them and their family at the reception. I am so honored that she always thinks of me when it comes to photography and her family. I photographed them as a family a couple years ago and last year did their engagement photos too. I’m so happy to continue the tradition and take pictures today too.


So I’ve been pinning ideas for posing and getting excited to be behind the camera again. Its been months since I’ve taken pictures of anything other than our daily life. Hopefully my body will manage the trip okay and I’ll be feeling good and able to do a great job for my friends. I’m so honored that they thought of me and asked.

Have any tips for working with large family groups?
What is one “must-have” wedding reception picture?


  1. Must have reception photo: close up of the bride & groom, cheek-to-cheek after the cake smash... :) One of my favs!

  2. At my studio, we have a chin to ear ratio. So the person in front at their ear we would have another person's chin and we create shapes with the group like ovals and circles for groups larger than 6. I have a huge thing for body angles-the shoulders and hips, it's so much more slimming for everyone.

    1. Thanks for the great tips Kim!! :) You took some of my favorite pictures of Kelly and I all those years ago...I love that you're still at it. You rock girl!!
