We returned to Grand Forks a couple of weeks ago to shoot Jarrod and Michaela's wedding on a spectactularly perfect Spring day.
ANOTHER fun wedding! You know it's a good one when the wedding party asks you to come back and party with them after you're done shooting. I dragged my tired old bones home, but my partner...not so sure about her (I guess she's not tellin').
I'm always asked by other photographers why I get the good weddings. Well, I only take the best brides and grooms. Michaela and Jarrod were not only fun, but they're bright, eloquent, and, most important, genuine! And, their friends, sibs, and parents are all a hoot! Second, I only shoot with the best. In this case, award-winning photographer Shawna Noel
who not only bails me out by taking better pictures than me (grrr!) but then generously says she owes it all to me (not true). Finally, I only shoot on picture perfect beautiful days, Winter or Summer. Don't ask me how I do this but it's just part of the Steve Silverman Weather Guarantee (pat.pend.)
From the bride: "I again have to say thank you. I continue to get rave reviews from friends and family on the photos and they've only seen just a few... Things like 'They look like they are from a bridal magazine' and 'When I get married they are taking my photos even in I have to arrange my wedding date around them!' So again, thank you thank you thank you!"
From the mother of the bride: "The pictures are absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to see them all. You did an excellent job of capturing their entire wedding day. Through your lens I can see the essence of their relationship. You captured their love for each other, the love of family and friends and fun! Excellent job! Thank you!"
