These photographs are two of my favorites within this wedding album. We were running short on time and we had only a few minutes in this field before the guests began to arrive forcing us to stop photography and hide the couple and the Star Wars characters.
As you can see in the image on the left, another storm trooper arrived along with Boba Fett and Darth Vader making for a truly diverse Star Wars crew when you include Chewbacca and Captain Rex. The photograph on the right side of the spread where the couple is framed by Chewbacca and Darth Vader's out of focus silhouette is actually an homage to one of my other popular wedding photographs where the mother of the bride is framed by a kissing couple. Before the wedding I had written down a long list of photographs that I wanted to capture and this one is only one of two that I had in mind ever since I had booked the wedding. Just as often happens in the stress of a wedding day, the list fell by the wayside in favor of and moving as quickly as possible.
