Rick & Liz
August 19, 2015
Rick & Liz’s relaxed Texas wedding/reception was more of a party with friends & family than a traditional reception with cheesy introductions & same ol’ songs by a DJ. There was no timeline. Things happened organically. Music was a playlist on iPod. It was natural, comfortable and most of all the pleasant for everyone involved.
Now I’ve photographed weddings during all types of weather… humid, cold, hot, torrential downpours and the perfect temperature… all the while wearing a suit or in the least slacks and a dress shirt. Don’t get me wrong I love getting dressed up to photograph a classic wedding in a upscale hotel or venue, especially to go on dates with my wife but, my ideal getup is comfort….think flip flops, shorts (no cargo shorts I have some class!) and a T-Shirt so when Rick mentioned the dress code for their wedding/reception was flips flops, shorts and a button up shirt to the reception I was beyond excited. It was a little toasty but not when wearing shorts and a linen shirt!
