Vow to geek for all eternity / by Sonya Paclob

Over the weekend, I photographed a wedding that is unconventional, wacky, fun and extremely geeky. Their rings were from Zelda. The MC played video game music. Even their cake toppers were from Mario Brothers.

How does it feel to be in love with someone with this much geek intoxicated in the blood stream?

It's simple, it's called love. And that is what I found when photographing their wedding day.  

Cari and Ryan are friends of mine for years. What is most important for me as a photographer is to naturally capture their personality in the best way I know how. 

For example, the Darth Vader force death grip. The bridesmaids were real sports. You can tell your party is having fun when they don't mind being chocked out in mid air.  

The groomsmen had the Dragon Ball Z Ginyu Force pose as well. Another homage to geek culture. 

Though the day had hints of geek inserted in the wedding. I caught some memorable feelings on the wedding, which I hope you see is joy above all else.

I've covered several weddings in my lifetime from big ball parties to small beach fronts. I have to say this is my favorite by far. Because of how everyone coexisted in this moment and the many feelings I captured that day. 

I hope when you see these photos, you can feel that love and joy. Thank you Ryan and Cari for being awesome and letting me part of your world.
