“My Groom HATES having his picture taken” is a sentence you do not want to hear as a wedding photographer. Well, that is one of the first things Valerie said to us. We were happy to find that his love for Val outweighed his hate of the camera! We were able to win Matt over! He smiled for some of the photos and even enjoyed the parts of the shoot that were geared towards his likes.
Valerie and Matt told us that he likes the outdoors and she loves pizza, so we combined the two with a session at the lake. Matt brought along his fishing poles for a few photos and then they cooked individual pizzas on the grill. Valerie is a big kid at heart and mentioned that she loved photos of people swinging, which worked out well since the lake had a swing set for them to play on as well.
