OFFSTAGE: Lambert-Shelton Photographer Shoots a Perfect Day

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Photographer Robert Evans had the assignment of a lifetime: to shoot the wedding of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton on Saturday (May 14) in Texas. In his photographer’s blog (which I guess would make him a blogographer?), he says the whole day was perfect and it felt more like a joy than a job. “One big reason they have great wedding photographs besides their genuine down to earth personalities which made my time behind my camera easy, was the fact that they cared more about great wedding photography than old traditions. They took my advice and saw each other before the wedding and took all their photos before their nuptials, so after they said “I DO” and walked down the aisle, they could go do whatever they wanted, instead of spending time taking photographs,” Evans wrote. He promises that once the pictures have made the media rounds later this week, he will be able to show some more on his blog. “If you love country music this was a once in a lifetime moment,” he says. “Of course, I am not a liberty to divulge details here on my blog but I will share some images right here in a week or so.”
