A couple of entries ago, I mentioned that my wife was being honored for her many years of service to the living history re-enactments we both participate in. Just for fun, I thought I would show some of the shots from that ceremony.
I consider myself to be an editorial, portrait, and light-commercial photographer. I don’t necessarily consider myself an event photographer (i.e. weddings, etc.), but I can tell a story or two. That is how I approached this event; as a story unfolding, complete with preparations being made right on through to the end. With that in mind, here are some of the highlights of the event:
After the jump, I would like to introduce you to Brenda The Braider.
I am going to finish this article with how the day started, with Brenda The Braider. Are you really surprised at this point that I would get a shot of her hands in action? Yeah, I didn’t think so. (*Grin*)
Brenda and her crew have developed many fascinating and intricate designs for hair braids, and have turned this idea into a workable small business. Each braid is a work of art on several levels, especially when you consider that the artwork only lasts until the hair gets taken down. If you take some careful precautions, these hair braids will last two to three days. So, like a good flower arrangement, enjoy it while you can!
Thank you, Brenda. I know you make a lot of people very happy with your work!
