Happy Parents, 2009

I rented a wide-angle lens to get a few pictures of my roommate Rhee and his new bride after their marriage in the Bountiful Temple back in 2009. While taking a routine shot of his parents, I suddenly stepped up into their faces to inspire a little spontaneity (literally inches away), and got this reaction. Between this experience and another event I shot two years later, I decided that the Wedding Photographer scene just wasn't for me, at least in part because I'd be much more interested in getting shots like this than the standard stuff everyone wants.
