I am no photographer. I love taking pictures, especially of my own children, but I have ZERO training. (I should probably take a class someday because NOT knowing what I'm doing is frustrating!)
On that note, I really don't get asked to take pictures for other people, at least not IMPORTANT pictures, until a few months ago when my sister Melanie called and said she'd offered to have me photograph her best friend's wedding.
WHAT!?!? Sure! Sounds fun! And after talking to LeAnn - the bride to be - I felt better about it. I emphasized my lack of training, but she insisted she was ok with that. I told her not to feel bad if she changed her mind and decided to get a professional - four days before the wedding, she called to confirm that we were still on. So, I showed up at the temple with my little camera bag and was instantly nervous when I saw all the other photographers with their massive stash of photography supplies. My camera looked so teeny and my supplies were limited/simple to say the least. But I put on a brave face and did my best. :)
Here are some of my favorites of this DARLING couple, LeAnn & James.
Beautiful Bride. Handsome Groom.
|I LOVED those little mason jar lanterns. They had them hanging EVERYWHERE at the reception. All the little details were just so darling. I LOVED it all.|
