This wedding was up in Burlington. The new Catholic ceremony that I'm seeing more and more really makes pictures hard as the Bride and Groom spend the entire ceremony with their backs to everyone. But, a wedding is not about the pictures and there was plenty of time to get great pictures afterwards in different locations.
That's why it is sometimes vitally important to get pictures done before the ceremony. Not only did we get bridal photos but also pictures with the family and bride's maids.
One thing to think about, as this bride did, was that confession is on Saturday evening starting at 4pm (before Saturday mass) so you have to get out of there pretty quickly after a late afternoon wedding (which this one was).
The pews were full by the time we went back inside which meant no lights could be set up and no picture with the priest who was already hearing confession. Off we went in search of greener photographic pastures...not hard in Vermont.
