RIUM RIVER BARN & VINEYARD

HILLMAN, MINNESOTA


PHOEBE + MATT

A SUNSOAKED AUTUMN MINNESOTA VINEYARD WEDDING

Together Phoebe and Matt complement each other well.  Both comic actors, their jokes swing in and out of the conversations, switching from witty observations to subtle punchlines.  When we first started planning how I'd be shooting their wedding, a movie came up - Terrence Malick's screen poem "Days of Heaven".  They wanted the photography to have the sweeping poetry and candid vigor of Malick's expertly shot cinematography gem.  Having a sense of what they meant, and having seen the film, I plotted & sketched out some compositions.  But it didn't quite click until we got there to there that epic MN barn wedding; to that field with a blazing orange sunset.  So much of wedding photography is juggling chance and preparedness.  You have to be ready at the right time and everyone has to be feeling that moment.  That moment happened when the entire wedding party, unplanned, walked out into the field for an impromptu photo session that almost felt like a fashion editorial.
