The week of October 16 was a whirlwind week. Nell and Eduardo flew in from Puerto Rico and we shot their engagement session two days before their wedding. Eduardo is self admittedly a little camera shy. However, after shooting with me for an hour he was legitimately excited for the photography for wedding day. Now, I have been to a lot of weddings and a lot of GREAT weddings this year. But wow! This was a lot of fun. The reception had three bands and a DJ! The entertainment at the reception started out with Las Guitarras de Espana with Carlo Basile performing a wonderful Flamenco dance. One of the bands was AfriCaribe. They brought out the "Bomba Dancer" out in dozens of guests who formed a tight circle formed around the group known for their African-Puerto Rican-Caribbean flavor of music and dance. Then, after all that incredible entertainment another band appeared and rocked the house. The Robert Allen Jr. Band was so good the entire crowd insisted on having them come back for an encore. The wedding was at St. Benedicts Catholic Church in Fontana. We took a Lake Geneva Cruise Line boat to Lake Geneva Country Club on truly one of the best days of the entire year! What a day!
The hi-res versions of this wedding are located at this link. Below you will see some sample photos from their wedding day and engagement session. Comments welcome on the photos below.
This was a really fun fusion video which I feel tells the entire story of the day in less than four minutes.
Yes they do all seem to look alike don't they? Can you guess how many of these girls is real and how many are cloned?
So photogenic! I feel like Nell and Eduardo would look good from any camera angle. Of all the weddings that needed to be nearly all photojournalistic this was the one to shoot!
I am often amazed at how many emotions can spill across the faces of my clients in between fractions of seconds.
Yes it is pretty risky to get the dog out for a photo op just a few minutes before the ceremony. But Nell pulled it off and Mr. Curtis held the dog back with an iron grip! :)
Yes they are that beautiful!
This was a pose we did on the engagement session and I was thrilled to get to try it on wedding day!
People were dancing literally all night long. I couldn't believe how many unique and dynamic photos we were able to capture during the night.
