When presenting photographs of a story or event, I often place the photos in chronological order, outlining the full essence of the story from start to finish. I will admit, this sometimes causes me to get too caught up in the order of things, that I forget to sit back and interpret the non-obvious and artistic elements.
My innovative personality began to brainstorm how I could present a photographic story differently, without confusing the viewer. After some thought, it triggered my memory of something I read in an article. I wish I could give credit to the person behind this idea, but unfortunately cannot recall the author or magazine. Something I do remember clearly, was the idea of getting viewers to look at something in an unexpected or unpredictable way. The minute you surprise them with something they weren't expecting, they may just look for a moment longer, perhaps even in a slightly different way. But, how can I tell a story without starting at the beginning? Will the viewers still understand?
It must have been at least several months ago when I came across this idea, and remember thinking to myself I am going to try this, someday! I am going to present images non-chronologically and unpredictably. Well, the right time and perfect occasion has presented itself, and I've decided to use this borrowed way to tell the story of a beautiful, fall wedding!
Part III: Something borrowed.
This past October, Kelli and Dillon were married in an old family barn. The couple was surrounded by friends and loved ones for an intimate, rustic ceremony. The mid-afternoon vows were followed by a quick trip to the local saloon, then off to the large reception and dance (but not before a quick shotgun beer!)
Here is a look at the Braith's wedding, in reverse. (:
