Fast forward from last blog that featured Bekah & Luc’s engagement to their Big Day! Their April wedding became a July wedding that was celebrated in the front yard. It was perfect! The challenges of planning a 2020 wedding created opportunities that featured romantic settings. The bride made her grand entrance from the home during the processional as the groom beamed at her while waiting under a tent. The azure blue skies and sunny breezes were a perfect pairing for this fun-loving couple. I am making many updates to my website so make sure to check it out! Aaron McGregor Photography

Wedding Adjustments 2020
An amazing year of 2020 has just finished. Yep, that is not a typo and I am not delusional. A wedding that has been in the planning phase for 2 years will NOT be stopped… NOT now, NOT EVER! Fortunately, all of the crazy shifting of dates in 2020 to alternative dates has been relatively easy. I recommended Friday or Sundays & many brides were already thinking that move to avoid venue, DJ & photographer conflicts with other wedding clients. A reputable photographer will require a signed contract. This is absolutely crucial: it locks in the photographer to be present on your wedding day unless an act of God determines otherwise. As we begin a new year, my next blog posts will focus on an amazing 2020 filled with Love Stories & Amazing People. Today is NOT the day to quit living, NOT now, NOT EVER!

Out of the Blue
On occasion, I will get a request through a Google key word search. Bob Wise from African Plains Taxidermy contacted me to photograph a blue wolf he mounted for the cover of a catalog. I was excited for this challenge since it is something that I typically don’t do. I am constantly looking for ways that take me out of my comfort zone of photographing people. This is another collaboration with Chris Lane as he helped me set up the shot to reflect the lighting conditions that existed in the original mountainous landscape. A little soft golden gel to mimic the evening sun and the camera angle made the wolf appear dominate. Post production wasn’t as easy as the photo shoot but I think the final catalog image looks pretty cool. African Plains Taxidermy is based in Hermnie, PA.
