The wedding of Josh and Kate Soholt was on an other beautiful day in Madison, Wisconsin. Kate had hired me without us first meeting because she was living is Idaho but she grew up in the Madison area so the wedding was here. We first met at their rehearsal at the Pres House which is in the library mall of the University of Wisconsin — Madison. I found Kate and Josh to be very charming, attractive and grateful for all that was happening.
We were able to connect personally over the phone. Much of wedding photography is not just getting great pictures, it’s also having a comfortable experience. Photographers come with almost every kind of personality imaginable. I am neither strongly introverted or extroverted according to my Myers-Briggs personality test. During the ceremony I like to be respectful and photograph the ceremony discretely. When the bride and her father are coming down the isle I’m upfront, in the isle getting the best photographs possible but when the ceremony is in process I turn off the flash and shoot with “fast” lenses that give me the light I need.
When the ceremony is over often the best, most creative photographs are taken outside. The following were taken in the UW library mall area.
From the UW mall we walked over to Union South to get some pictures by Lake Mendota. That is where these were taken.
The following video is a highlights of their wedding day. I hope that you enjoy it.
