My iTunes: And You Give by Matthew Barber

Hi everyone! I am finally ready to share some images of my first wedding shoot. I had such a fun time with everyone and came away very pleased with the shots I managed to capture. The wedding was small, intimate and casual...which fits me to a tee. And I have to say, I had a perfect backdrop!

I hope you enjoy these!

The Conch Horn

The Ring and the Dress

Almost Ready

Finally Resting



A Moment

Stealing A Kiss...

Or Two....

The Cake

Holding Hands

The Bride

Yeah!!! I was waiting up for you! I LOVE the first and the seventh the most. Beautifully done! YOU DID IT! You are OFFICIALLY a wedding photographer! Can you come retake our wedding photos? Better yet, can I second shoot for you sometime?!

Robert said...

Anna. This is great work. No, Really. This is GREAT work. I love the variety here. The vignetting is subtle but makes a statement. The color is sharp and captivating. The emotion brought forth from these images captures the event beautifully. I'm so very impressed. Congratulations on a job extremely well done. You should have the couple write a reflection and reference for you and post it on your pro-site.

I like the way you captured the personality of the islands as well as the romance of the wedding. Very nicely done.

I also like the non-traditional shots. They personalize the photo session, and if there's anything a wedding ought to be, I think personal is high on the list!

paul chambers said...

stunning shots anna, particularly think the black and white ones hold a timeless quality....

secret agent mama said...

Absolutely stunning!

christy said...

JFargo said...

I know it's been said already, but these are absolutely beautiful and fantastic.

You do great work!

Ana said...

Everybody said, but I also want to tell you that your work is so so beautiful and different.

Congratulations.
Ana.

Alice said...

WOW!!! Beautiful wedding photography. Looks like you are officially a "Wedding Photographer" now! Dad and I are very proud of you and we're glad you had such a good time in Hawaii.

christy said...

Mmm, nice new header -- quite appropriate for Memorial Day!

I would love to call you... one slight problem, though... I don't have your number. I'm sending you an email with my cell number, though = )

Beverly said...

How lovely! You do such a great job.

Anna said...

Thanks so much everyone! You are making me blush! :)

Yankee, Transferred said...

Beautifully done. I would totally hire you.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

You did a beautiful job! The photos have a very relaxed romantic feel.

Stacey Huston said...

John Roberts said...

Your eye for interesting detail and your ability to capture the atmosphere of the event show in every shot. Very nice!

Kim said...

Gorgeous! I am in awe!

Mike said...

Great shots Anna. I figured you would pull this one off in flying colors! Looks like you could be traveling the world being a wedding photographer.

Blue in the Stream said...

Anna - Beautiful! I can tell how much you enjoyed the event! All are fabulous!

Jenty said...

Wow, what a stunning set of photos! I'm sure the couple are going to be really pleased with them, well done!

Anna said...

Amazing pictures! I love the intimacy you captured between the bride and groom... aw so cute! If i ever get married you're shooting my wedding... if I can afford you at that point you may be just too famous for my budget.

Dianne said...

I love them all but "the moment" is just spectacular!

what a beautiful couple captured to perfection.

Blue in the Stream said...

I love these! they are AWESOME!!! My fave is the one of the bride's hand holding her dress. LOVE the framing!!! Beautiful!

Robert said...

Thanks for letting me know you added more. You are inspiring me. A while back a guy at church told me he does weddings and offered to let me go along some time. I'm going to email him and see if the offer is still open. If I can get something half as good as you got here I'd consider it a success. And by the way, I love love love the new header. :)

Melli said...

Wow! You did a fabulous job! They look so soft and romantic! Perfect for the island setting. And I love the shot of the cake! Well... I'm a big fan of cake! :) I know the couple was WELL pleased with these photographs! Wish you'd been photographing MY blue jean wedding - um... 21 years ago... you were probably dunking graham crackers in milk, huh?

Mark said...

The soft B&W shots make it look truly otherwordly.

They look very happy in every photo, and seeing those photos on their walls all the time can only remind them of what's inside, even when times are tough.

tommie said...

I bet they are so happy with these. You have managed to capture the true spirit of the wedding...the little details like the feet on the beach, that bracelet, the leis. I love from the back shots...makes you wonder where their path will lead them.

CG said...

Wow, you did a great job. So beautiful and so romantic!

fishing guy said...

Anna: Simply amazing, very nicely done.

Jerry Pennington said...

Those are great. I'm sure they're very happy with their wedding photos.

And, getting married in a Hawaiian shirt looks like the way to go. Much more comfortable than a tux.

lynn said...

Amazing! You did a wonderful job. They must be very pleased. I've really been enjoying all your photos!

photowannabe said...

A star performance Anna. Beautiful and original shots. I really love the dress shot with the gorgeous ring. You captured all the textures so well.

Bob-kat said...

These are beautiful and must be a wonderful keepsake for the happy couple. I really like the one of them holding hands.

annette said...

Fantastic photos Anna, the bride and groom must have been thrilled, I know I would have been! :0)

Cris said...

Hi Anna! These are gorgeous pictures and just now I had a chance to check your blog, I was so anxious to see them. Congratulations on your work!

Laura said...

BEAUTIFUL!!

Rebecca said...

Anna, these are GREAT! Really, really super.

Question: am I missing something, or was the "shell favor" misprinted? (The wedding was this May, not May of 2007, right?)

So confused... :/ But that photo is GREAT, too. Seriously.
