My First Wedding {Part II}

There was just no way I could pack all the pictures in one post. Well, and I’ll be honest, I didn’t have all of them done at the time!!! Whew! I’m learning what work goes in to being a wedding photographer that’s for sure! I’ve really enjoyed it though, the pictures (I think) turned out really good and I’m so proud of them. Not to mention (because I totally didn’t last post) I had a great second shooter to help me out that day. Thank you Scotty for being there! Your presence alone with that second camera kept me calm! Oh and it was his first wedding to shoot, too! Man the bride sure did trust us. 🙂

So apparently the guys needed a little visual help in putting the ties on!Oh was it windy! Didn’t leave us with a lot of choices outside.Aren’t they all beautiful?!

The moment of truth…..will he do it?  She held her own pretty good!!They exited under a rain of bubbles.Just look at that happiness!! Can’t you just feel it!The vintage truck doing it’s final duty. Gosh I love that thing!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos as well as my commentary! I plan on starting off slow and doing 2-3 weddings per year. So if you or someone you know needs a photographer for a wedding I’m available!!

Quick little note: Just wanted to say thanks to my wonderful family/friends who knew going into this I was nervous and sent me sweet texts the day of and encouraged me all along the way. It means the world to me!!! Love you all!

My First Wedding {Part I}

I didn’t ever expect to be a wedding photographer. I mean let’s face it, that idea is very daunting!! However when friend asked fully knowing I hadn’t ever shot one (not even as a second shooter) I decided to test myself and take the plunge!! I’m soooo glad I did! Yes, leading up to it I was a frantic mess, but when the time came all that washed away and things went so well!

Is this something I’m going to continue…well…maybe on a limited amount. I’m thinking two a year haha That might be good to do until I really decide based on more experience. 

This was the verse that was on their wedding invitations. So lovely.

The ceremony was so perfect. Instead of the unity candle or sand they did a rope ceremony. I had never heard of it before this and it’s pretty cool!

Before the wedding they did not see each other but we had her come out behind him so they could say hi and talk beforehand.It was very moving to witness such love and emotions right before the big event. I had to hold back a few tears so I could keep shooting.

There are many more photos to share so I had to break it up into parts. Part II to come soon!!
