How to photograph your own wedding. Green Bay Wedding Photographer.

Today marks the one year anniversary of one of the toughest things I’ve had to cover, but also the most joyous .  Coming from a photojournalism background, you always want to document the major events in your life.  It was tough documenting this event because I was a big part of it.  The other person in this event was understanding enough to let me have my camera at my side most of the day.  Yes, the major event was my wedding day.  A year ago I got married to the greatest girl ever.   We hired Green Bay’s best wedding photographer to be the main photographer–Turba Photography.  I may be a tad prejudiced because Jerry Turba became my brother-in-law that day.

So here are a few of my favorite shots of the day from my point of view.  I even managed to get myself into a few.

  • Troy Freund - Great job, Mike! At my wedding, nearly two years ago, I got off about 3 rolls of HP5 with my M6TTL. Like you, I was biased, but those are some of my favorite pics! Congrats to you and your bride!
