Super Candid – Wedding guests catching me off guard

Wedding guests sometimes surprise me. They will catch me off guard when I’m not expecting anything special to happen, and do something funny, crazy, or just plain awesome. Fortunately, if I’m not expecting those moments, at least I’m ready for them.

Surprise pose! I was trying to get a sneaky candid of these two guests and he just jumped out at me. I love it!

Ah!!! What is he doing with that?! I don’t remember what he intended to do, but I happened to catch this moment just as he looked the most threatening. Sometimes the timing is just priceless!

My very favorite mom candid is this dance/ strip(?) move, followed by a hysterical reaction to her own silliness! I got half a dozen shots of just her reaction. She’s pretty awesome!

I will probably do another similar post in the future, since I’ve had a fair share of surprising guest candids. So stay tuned! 🙂
