chris and inger




chris carter and inger lund, just back from their honeymoon in Lanta, Thailand, came by today and picked up their cds.
photographs from their wedding in Carmel, California. they were married at the Mission Ranch, directly behind The Mission, on the same acreage bot not associated. the Ranch is beautiful, but like a golf course, very well manicured. maybe a little sterile. however, inger had hired me based on the work I did for john and sarah kosinsky, in Maine. in particular the informal portraits. so that was the assignment, obviously cover the wedding, but the emphisis on the informal view camera portraits.
fortunatly on the periphery of the lawns, was an untouched hidden primordial thicket. extremely rare insects that have existed for tens of thousands of years busy themselves in this place.
I tried to step over all the life forms as I took photographs, tried to be as gentle as a lamb.
this one of chris and inger was taken pretty late in the day.
