“For the rest of our days” is the question that Mike asked Jessica when they got engaged, and the promise they made to each other at their wedding. I couldn’t be happier that I was able to be there as they began a new chapter of days together!
ABOUT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE VARSITY
I’ve photographed many weddings at the Loring restaurant and Varsity Theater. They are two well matched spaces that each have enough character to make an entire celebration.
Couples often ask me what spaces will work in the Varsity for photography?
There are honestly almost infinite possibilities for spaces, but they all require some planning since the space is dark. The dark moodiness and professional lighting throughout are vital to the mood that the Varsity sets (and are probably a large part of why you chose that space!). Those same features can be an opportunity or a challenge for photography. Bringing in that feel and light while keeping things crisp and natural is an evolving balance throughout a wedding.
For Jessica and Mike’s wedding, we took some of my favorite portraits in the Varsity – especially by the wall of old posters on the staircase.
And when you have a marquee just for you, then you definitely need to incorporate that into photos, too!
