Lexington wedding photographer: From a different perspective
A few weeks ago, the pastor at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church asked me to shoot a wedding ceremony for a brochure the church is putting together for people interested in booking the it as a wedding venue. For couples looking for a traditional venue for a wedding in the Lexington area, Maxwell is an obvious place to investigate, and it’s able to provide all the needed support personnel for a wedding, or the staff can work with other ministers and people to create a very special day.
After clearing it with the photographer hired by the bride’s family, I showed up at the church, not nearly as early as the wedding shooter. Compared to the all-encompassing job a wedding photographer has, my job was much more defined: capture what the sanctuary looks like with a wedding taking place. It was an interesting way to shoot a wedding, where I usually view the telephoto lenses as the key gear, so I can create intimate images of this very public event. Here, the inclination was more to pull back and shoot for atmosphere, though certainly, part of that atmosphere is the intimacy of a beautiful house of worship.
Of course, I love the fully-immersed experience of being the wedding photographer, but this was a cool chance concentrate on one aspect of that day, from a different perspective.
