A day with the Rinellas

August 13, 2011

Laura and Lee’s wedding introduced me to some new people and places in Effingham, Illinois. I usually only make it down there for my work with the newspaper, so it’s a little bit farther than most of my usual wedding shoots.

I was pleased to find that just about everybody I came in contact with was incredibly friendly and professional. The church staff was more than helpful in providing me access to their sound equipment, the photographers were fun to work with, and the DJ and his team were fantastic.

The same can be said for the bride and groom. Laura was one of the most outgoing brides I’ve ever met, and was a natural in front of the camera, especially the “Love Story” interview. Her groom, Lee, was a little more reluctant to step in front of the camera, but his cold feet were completely unnecessary. As soon as he started talking he loosened up and it seemed like he didn’t even notice the camera there.

It was a great night with lots of dancing, and even some familiar faces.

So, here’s a look at my time in Effingham with the Rinellas.
