I was asked months ago about photographing a family reunion. I had never done an event like this, but went into it as I would a wedding. Many people, chaos, lists, cards, etc. There were A LOT of people!
Things seemed to run pretty smoothly. The hostess had a nice backdrop set up with a bench, her brother-in-law had built a western type fence, and they had little family signs hanging up. There were twinkle lights, but alas one thing will always be forgotten.
I was organized as much as possible and the families were easy to work with. Though I don’t specialize in indoor photography, the natural light coming from the large doors made for some amazing lighting. With it being 95 degrees outside…indoors was best!
