When I met with Angela back in May 2010 and she told me she was planning a masquerade; my mouth has been watering in anticipation. When she told me about the decor they were planning and the mask that were being made I knew I wanted to shoot her wedding. The day of the wedding, when I walked into the Bauerhaus, my jaw just dropped. It was every bit of what she told me. Of coarse if I had to pick my favorite thing out of everything I would have to say the masks has to be the coolest thing. There were about 50 to 60 masks and not a one was the same. Just to show the dork that I am I was humming “Masquerade” from “The Phantom of the Opera” all day. You can see more of the masks here.
Angela and Anthony were so much fun to work with. They were so into each other and when a couple is just that in love with each other, you simply can’t take a bad photo. They had a beautiful outside ceremony and Angela liking to do things different had the chairs for guests set up all the way around the ceremony rather than the tradition aisle. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve been able to photograph a ceremony 360 degrees.
One of the more memorable moments for me was right when we got outside to do the girls formals it started to rain. It was quite a sight to see us all running from the field back into the Bauerhaus. I was running backwards trying to take photos of it all. Needless to say because I was running too they all turned out blurry. All in all it was a great day and once again I had a wonderful time creating wonderful images and another one of my awesome couples. Thank you, Angela and Anthony, for allowing be to be apart of your lives.
