Who invites a photographer to a Bachelor Party?
Good question. May the best way to answer this is to take some time to think about what the Bachelor, or Bachelorette, Party represents to those participating. It is a celebration with friends right? It is the formal send off right? It is laughter and fun. Emotions all around right? These are the prefect elements for great candid photographs. Sure there may be a few moments here and there that you would prefer the photographer keep the camera in the bag, or perhaps not even be remotely close to the activity. Cool. But what about the rest of the time? What do you have planned for your party and how could you incorporate some photography?
These photos, taken in Vegas at Exotics Racing, are a perfect example of capturing the moment.
Carlos and Jen are getting Married in August of this year – you can read more on their story here - and Carlos’s Bachelor Party was earlier this month. Some of his closest friends were able to attend and I am so thankful that he graciously invited me to attend the celebration. Much of the event spanned 3 or more days, I arrived mid-day on Friday and left mid-day on Saturday. The 24 hours I was there I was invited to be part of everything, camera included. Perfect.
