I get myself into unique situations from time to time as a wedding photographer, and being stranded in trees is one of the more common ones.
Others: being attacked by a moray eel; standing in hip deep water amongst a few dozen sharks; shooting an engagement session underwater at a public pool in Denver; etc.
I had to laugh today when Ivan sent this sequence he shot of me getting ready to create a shot of him and Amanda. This wasn’t the least stable tree I’ve climbed up, but it certainly was covered in pollen, and I was a mess for the rest of the night. Anyway, I thought the view from the top was pretty nice.
More from their wedding soon, and props to Amanda for wanting to do this potentially messy shot on her wedding day! I love the look on her face in the lower left image…
