Well his son at least!!!

More story telling images, but sadly I can not show you much more due to contracts and the subject which we were photographing I wanted to post a few fun snapshots of the wedding we shot in Africa for the Vice President of Uganda son and the third in charge of Kenya daughter. As well as some fun shots which we took throughout our travels overseas.

Again I feel we have much better shots and it kills me I can't show you all of them, so I hope this will hold everyone over for a while!

I will add to these over the next week or so but I wanted to start the thread and as I get some of the 50 gig of images processed I will post more. Yeah you read that right 50 freaking gig!

4 photographers in a different country with different cultures we tend to get shutter happy over a week

Great stuff Mike!!

I wish you were going to be doing a seminar in Atlanta, I would be all over this.

I have to say, when I clicked this thread, I thought it was going to be one of those Nigerian scams...

# 3 is incredible, simply incredible, though they are all wonderful!

Yes, I have the same question -- how did you get contracted for this assignment?

I agree with Solaria on #3, stunning capture. #5 is also an excellent image.

Great job Mike.

The one of the groom is friggin brilliant. GQ'n all the way.

Ive always wondered about the different things photogs tell their models when they want to achieve a certain look.

What did you tell him to get that look?

Amazing photos!

And 50GBs worth of photos! That'll take a while to sort through =P

looks like you've really got some winners here. I'm going to have to agree and say that the portrait of the groom is outstanding, as well as #6. Good eye!

I will be in TN next month (check out www.findingcolor.comexternal link for more information and HAHAHAHAHAHA on the scam I must admit that did go through my mind quite a few times on the 18 hour flight!

Thanks for the nice words, they were all AMAZING people, some of the best we have ever met!

Very nice pictures. How did you get contacted for a job like this anyway??

We do weddings all over the world, this year along only two weddings we have drove to the rest we had to fly, its just what we have gotten to be known for and word spreads. We do not advertise for this its all word of mouth. Also I feel our speaking engagements around the U.S. and world as well as the Wedding Books that we are in helps alot. A client picks up Grace Ormonde or Martha Stewart Magazine and sees our work in the pages, it sure does help :)

Thanks for the nice words, see above for the answer on how we get contracted for these types of jobs. Also I might add I feel knowing photographers all over the world, sharing knowledge freely and not being stuck up jerk about it, truly has been one of our biggest assests in our business. We get so many weddings from other amazing photographers which are our friends we end up travelling a lot.

Its more work than fun I promise, having done this alot around the world airports are horrible sometimes about your gear and how they treat it. However once you get out of the airport it can be fun sometimes, but still work, lots of work!

I really like #3 and #4

The cars were for the bride and groom and are over 1 million dollars each in their country. Yeah you read that right :)

The culture was truly amazing, fun and interesting. Always something interesting to see and watch, sometimes so much we would forget to shoot. :)

Nothing really this was an unposed image, taken while he was waiting for his bride to get some images taken of her and her girls after the wedding on the shoreline of Lake Victoria in Uganda. The light was nice and this is just naturall him. We usually are the clients friends and not just hired help so it is pretty easy to get them to relax in front of the camera with us. Not always but most of the time this is the case.

Thanks and yeah it is the horrible part of the wedding event normally but these are so fun and different it went by pretty fast! Thanks for the nice words!

Fast computers and several batches going on at the same time helps a tone, but honestly it was not as bad as you think, since as stated above these were different and almost every image reminded me of something from the once in a lifetime trip!
