Ken and Barbie's Wedding Photos, by Ellie

Hey everybody!

Today's post showcases the main event: Ken and Barbie's wedding images! Ellie worked so hard on making these images: planning the shots, designing, arranging, shooting... she had a great vision and I was honored to be her assistant for this project! I let her use my Canon 5D MK3 camera, 100mm macro (for most of the shots), 50mm 1.2, and 85mm 1.2 lenses - so pretty much MY wedding day set up. While she doesn't know how to set the camera dials, she does a great job with composition and focusing, so I'm of course a proud dada ("dada" is what Ellie calls me). Without further adieu, here are Barbie and Ken's wedding images...

(oh, and leave Ellie a comment!)

Barbie's pink wedding details...

Barbie gettin' her hair did... :)

Then it was time for Barbie to put on her lovely wedding dress...

Against their photographers wishes (haha... totally kidding!), they didn't have a first look before the wedding.  Here is our lovely bride Barbie walking down the aisle to her groom, Ken, waiting and looking on...

Ken, you may now kiss your bride Barbie...

A fun sorority pic after the ceremony of Barbie and her girls...

Cake cutting time!!  Barbie had a fab rustic wedding with lots of natural light!

Barbie and Ken shared a very sweet first dance as their friends looked on...

Then it was PARTY TIME!!

Ken and Barbie's guests threw gold star confetti as the gorgeous bride and her groom made their exit...

And away Barbie and Ken go in her sweet ride...
