I photographed a unique wedding yesterday. It was a couple of Harley Davidson bikers, the groom being of Chippewa Indian descent, and witnessed by their dogs (boxers). It was a lot of fun. Parts of the ceremony were in conjunction with Chippewa traditions, so it was very informative too. Here are a few of the images that I have worked with so far. Thanks for looking.

Very interesting story. I guess your main focus was on the bike. Great bending!

I did do some of the couple with the LBs but I didn't get home until late last night and have more to shoot today. I hope to get more done tonight if I am not totally exhausted! But the bike was a large part of my focus with the LBs, yes.

My local camera club is going into a Harley showroom after hours soon. This just makes me want to go more.

I enjoy motorcycle photographs David, especially good detail shots like these ones you've posted. I particularly admire the second one featuring the lovely cylinder cooling fins with the discreet little stylised H-D logo. A nice celebration of Function & Form, well observed and captured by you with LB.

I'm afraid that I now can't resist posting this recent non-Harley shot of mine, only because I think the Function & Form essaythat goes with it will tease the Harley fans reading your thread. Apologies for briefly hijacking your thread and for being cheeky about Harleys.

David,

Nice bending of those Harleys! I'll have to tell Greg to be sure to check out these shots.

Thanks Joby, Paulo, and Rich for looking and commenting. Great piece Paulo, thanks for putting a link. Rich, I did not know Greg was a biker dude. A bendy biker huh?

David,

Actually, Greg did have a Harley back in the late 1990s when he first got married. But the cost of raising a family meant good-bye to the Harley. And in a way, I'm glad cause I didn't want to see him part of a bendy bike (literally). :)

Nice shots, looks like an ad for Harleys. Well done.

Thanks all for commenting and looking. Yes Pam it was very interesting. It is the first wedding I have ever done that the entire front row was dogs, and they had to keep getting the "Pooper Scooper" out to clean the dance floor! Did I mention they were playing horse shoes at the reception?
