Emily & Nathan wedding photographer – Onalaska & La Crosse WI

June 8th, 2008 – The second wedding I photographed of the weekend was held in Onalaska, WI. The main thing that was unique about Emily & Nathan’s wedding was that both of their dads are pastors. They both were Officiants in the wedding as well. They also have other talented family members. Nathan’s cousin played the piano during the wedding and Emily’s sisters sang & two of the sisters played guitar and keyboard. You could tell these two had very close families and the family members had special roles during the wedding.

Let’s check out some their photos, huh?! I started with Nathan and the groomsmen as Nathan & Emily chose not to see each other until the ceremony. Here’s Nathan and the guys walking back in from some outdoor photos…

We got through the photos and before you knew it, guests were arriving and the ceremony was about to begin. As I mentioned before, Emily’s sisters were musically talented and one of them played the guitar and was also the Matron of Honor…

The wedding ceremony began and they were the center of attention. I thought this SOOC photo represented that well. I always try to find a good time to do this effect in camera during wedding coverage…
