A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte | Wedding Photography

When I received an email from Brionne a month before her wedding with a few things she’d like make sure we photographed (the porch swing, trinkets on her bouquet, etc), there happened to be one request that jumped out at me. She said, “I really really really love the spin on Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. If there was any way we could do something similar, it would make my life.” I responded with, “it would make mine too.” Of course, we were being slightly hyperbolic, but still…it would rock.

So when a bride tells me something would “make her life”…you are pretty much guaranteed I will do anything I can to make it happen. And although I forgot the parasols at home, and it had poured just an hour before…we still made it happen. Thanks to a stashed umbrella in the car & the most amazing wedding party that didn’t mind sitting/laying on the ground. For that, I am grateful…and I am sure Brionne is as well.

Here’s my rendition to make it appear similar to pointillism…I am no Georges Seurat, but I think it will mean a bit more to Brionne than his version anyway.
