Rehearsal dinners are a great way for us to come out and photograph the wedding party, the couple and their families in a more relax, non-wedding attire way. It is fun and and it is also a great opportunity to get to know the people prior to the wedding. I find that people are a little more comfortable around me the next day, the wedding day. My presence (and my cameras) are a little less intimidating. Somehow, because i met them and “hung out” with them at the rehearsal dinner, i am quickly accepted as a “friend” or a member of the family than a “vendor,” thus allowing me to get closer to people the next day and capture genuine moments.

i love shooting rehearsal dinners.  i highly recommend them.

Here are some images from Emily and John’s rehearsal dinner at McCrady’s in Charleston, South Carolina.

Towards the end of summer, we went to Edisto with the cousins and spent a couple of days there. i brought my trusty holga to get some pics. 
i love how my holga pictures turn out most of the time.
