I did it! I did it! I made it through my first wedding, and I'm still all in one piece! I was so excited/nervous about Saturday. Those of you that have had sessions with me know what a perfectionist I am, and I wanted to do the best job for this couple while knowing that this would be a great learning experience for me and that I was bound to make a few mistakes. I asked my stepdad who has some background in photography to tag along with me as my assistant. I've gotta say - we'd made a great team! Thank you, Ray!
I can say that we couldn't have asked for a better day! The family was so gracious to us. Even the groomsmen didn't give me any trouble! Everyone was so, so nice, and by the end of the day, we felt like we were part of the family too.
What was the biggest thing I learned from this wedding? Well, there were a few, but right now, the one that stands out the most is - NEVER promise a blog sneak peak the night of the wedding! Man, I was TIRED! My legs ached like I had ran the Music City Marathon and not the Gregory-Morris wedding! :) So, sorry guys that I didn't get them up last night, but here they are now.
Thank you so much for having the confidence in my work to take a chance on a girl with no wedding portfolio! I think I have some great ones to add to it now! I also have to say thanks to the numerous wedding photographers whose sites I scoured daily for inspiration. You guys are amazing!
Tying the Knot:
Mama was so beautiful as she danced with her son. I know this will be me some day when I have to give Jakey up!
After leaving the reception, we went to a nearby park for some intimate Bride and Groom shots:
Don't they just make you want to get married all over again???
Thanks again, Michelle and John (and family!) for a wonderful day. I am honored to have been your photographer.
Why should you invest in custom portraiture?
