My 3 year old son, Cole knows I’m a photographer and knows I shoot weddings. He really doesn’t understand this or isn’t the slightest bit interested in the photos I show him (would you be aged 3?). He’s a big fan of everything Toy Story, though, so I decided to shoot a wedding just for him, using everyone’s favorite spud couple, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.
I tried to shoot a number of the “conventional” wedding images, like the shoes, confetti and groups shots. Seeing the camera in the box of accessories also gave me the idea of Uncle “Spud” always trying to get the shot. The first idea I had was one of the wedding breakfast with potato being served. Shocking, I know.
The First Look:
“Get out of the way, Uncle Spud!”
Nighttime portraits: To be honest I could have gone on for ages shooting images for this. It was so much fun. I might even re-visit it at some point to add some more! Cole is a big Power Ranger fan, so you may see the nuptials of some Rangers soon.
