Saturday I joined 3 fellow photographers to snap away and celebrate Rachel & Ivan’s wedding celebration at the Palais Royale ballroom in downtown South Bend. While working with Matthew from Zeta Alpha Studios on what was undoubtedly the biggest and busiest wedding day shoot of the year for all 4 of us was also probably the most fun I’ve had behind the scenes hanging out with Ivan and the guys. What a riot.
Here’s one of my favorite photos from the ceremony, and the reason I keep a fisheye lens within reach for these wide shots of the celebration.
Ivan’s pumped up for the big day!
