Heather & Michael's Wedding

Hi everybody! Here are a few images from the first of the two weddings we photographed this weekend. This was definitely one of our most anticipated weddings of the summer because over the past year we've gotten to spend some time hanging out with these guys and they have become valued friends of ours. They are so much fun to be around and they challenge us in so many (good) ways! It was awesome being there for their special day and getting to witness how much all of their friends and family have been blessed by them as well. We are so happy for you two!

We rented an 8mm fisheye lens for the weekend. This was our first time renting this lens, and it is a LOT of fun to play with! The lens gives a nearly 180 degree view that ends up as a circular image. It is actually tricky to use because if you are not careful, your own feet will end up in all the pictures. I got this shot by putting the camera in the timer mode, and placing the camera on the floor pointing straight up in the middle of the B & G and some of their guests doing the Hokey Pokey.

One unique aspect of this wedding was the underlying mathmatic theme. They had their wedding rings designed for them as a mobius strip--which is a one-sided object. If I try to explain it any further than that, I will only confuse myself, so I'm not going to try. They also designed their own cake as a 3-d version of the golden ratio. Sweet!
