I shot a destination wedding last year where, at the end of the night when the dj stopped playing and everyone else was in bed, the wedding party headed down to the beach, got naked and posed for a very different wedding party kind of photo.
Meaghan + Justin and their wedding party were that kind of crazy, minus the nudity. It was a huge group of friends and family completely overflowing with happiness and it was just awesome to be a part of it.
I was headed for a My Morning Jacket tune for this slideshow. Something I’m pretty sure I had used before but the time and tone just seemed to fit. Then Meaghan reminded me of her first dance song and that fit pretty well too and had a bit more sentimental value. In the back of my mind I thought, “wouldnt it be funny to use that song by those guys that Meaghan + Justin played over and over at the reception and everyone went nuts.” I had never heard this kind of anthem before which shows both my age and out of touchedness but it was an earworm and I knew for sure Steph would know what the song was. she found it and I watched it on youtube, I played for Lola. It was in heavy rotation for a few days. I just wasn’t sure how it would go as a slideshow tune.
So I made two. The one above for everyone and this one for Justin.
