There is a unique responsibility to being a Wedding Photographer. We are asked to come into the lives our clients even for the briefest of moments and capture their most intimate relationships. We cherish this responsibility, and embrace the unique opportunities that arise from it.
Last fall, a unique opportunity presented itself when Megen and Matt contacted LemonLime Photography for what was supposed to be a typical client interview. The newly engaged couple came to LemonLime with an open mind. Neal & Eric with LemonLime saw an amazing opportunity before them …an opportunity to both participate in a random act of kindness, and to allow unrestricted creative thought by multiple photographers as a learning experience for everyone involved. We are humbled that Megen and Matt gave us full creative freedom.

Over the course of the last few months these four studios have selflessly worked together to create a plan for the day that would allow each photographer the freedom to explore their ideas and focus on a specific portion of the wedding day while maintaining a photojournalistic flow that documented the day.
In addition, we took it one step further and contacted a local florist and cake designer to see if they too would like to take part, and with Megen and Mattâ€™s blessing they joined forces with us to contribute their time and talents for this unique opportunity.

Over the next week and a half all four studios will display their contributions to this project. We hope this project shows the power of teamwork within our industry, compels you to find new ways to challenge yourself, and inspires you to make a difference in someoneâ€™s life. A special thank you to everyone who gave selfless of themselves to make this project come together.
Three more posts will follow over the next week with the rest of my contribution to the project. Check out the other photographers above for their individual contributions.
Today, two abstracts.
