When it came time to photograph this couple on the wedding day, I was fortunate in that I was able to incorporate Star Wars characters.
Although the members of the 501st Legion were only obligated to attend the ceremony, almost all of them were my personal friends and thus I was able to call in a few favors and have them show up and get dressed a few hours early. The first character who was ready was Chewbacca. I started by incorporating him into a traditional portrait and that I came up with this quirky photograph of Chewy with a bride eschewing her future spouse in favor of the hairy guy. And what Star Wars wedding would be complete without lovable Chewbacca. Han Solo would be proud.
