Civil Union: Julie and Katie – A reception party


This is some selected snapshots i took of a friends civil union reception held at the elks lodge in Du Quoin on October 6 2012. I was the “official” photographer of the event expected to capture the special moment of their life. By no means am no professional but I did my best, so I hope I captured it.

Considering the low light environment and what gear I have (my one and only Canon Rebel XS capable of only up to ISO 1600, an 18-200 f3.5-5.6, a 430EX II speedlight, and a gary fong modifier), boy what a challenge it was.

below is the ambient light…

but the couple were very excited and special…

and were dancing their way into the event…

stories and wishes are shared…

while the food is enjoyed…

then of course the cake…

…is shared

then the first dance as a couple…

then the dancing begins…

of course the kiss during the event is frozen…

and then everyone is happy and having fun …

to close, is i think the best of the wishes for the couple…

Thanks for visiting….
