Christie's Graduation Ceremony at Auburn

Well a few weeks ago we were at my wife’s most favorite place in the whole world to visit, Auburn University! ha! I know that if we didn’t live and have family in Charleston, she would so want to move to Auburn, Al in a second! So we went to my sister in-law Christie’s graduation ceremony on Aug. 10th. Now this girl has worked long and hard for this degree. After working in NY for Ralph Lauren designing children’s clothes and then getting married and having two children, this was a major accomplishment! I am so proud of her! Yay Christie! ;-)

Her cute little family! It was only like 95 degrees or something when this shot was taken!

Now this was too funny not to post up. I didn’t even notice the girl standing behind Christie until I was processing all the images. There were probably a lot of college grads who will be looking for work like this girl.

I wanted to include a shot of the nose bleed seats that we had during the ceremony. As you can tell, I had to “reach” out a long ways with my lens to grab some shots!

Ok, so I have to do a little setup for you on this shot. Now this is the AU sign right in front of Samford Hall that is on campus. It’s probably the most photographed spot in all of Auburn. So there was a line of graduates all the way down the street waiting to have their shot with the sign and Samford Hall behind them.( About a full hours wait time.) Seeing how we only had a few minutes before Christie had to be seated inside, I thought I would make my own shot. So I’m standing in the median of the street with cars whizzing by me and people all over the place getting in my shot. I had my brother in law stand just a few feet down from her with my off camera flash to help throw some extra light. People who had been standing in line were giving us these weird looks as to what we were trying to do. What would have taken them (people standing in line) an hour to do, I grabbed in about 5 minutes! Oh yeah!
