When I heard the wedding I was second shooting for Brittany Bekas Photography was sending me to Melrose Park to photograph the boys, I wondered if I’d randomly know someone or if my friends Sammie and Dom (who lives in Melrose Park) would know them. Then I pulled up to the house and saw a familiar face…. Dom’s brother, Anthony.
The day was interesting to say the least. A wedding party made up of 17 Italian men and 13 Italian women… let’s just say it wasn’t a quiet day 🙂 But that’s what made it fun! It was even better when I found out that Sammie and Dom were going to be at the reception. Working with Brittany is fun enough, but to have one of my best friends there, who I haven’t seen in a while because I’ve been so busy just made my night.
Congratulations to Dee and Vito. I had such a fun time photographing you both in the park, and especially Vito in the morning riding around on a Vespa in the alley behind his mom’s house. I love when families make the photographers and other vendors feel like family… make sure we eat, have something to drink, have a place to sit at the table… it makes my job just that much better and makes me feel like part of the family for the day 🙂
Here’s a few of my faves of the day…
