After two weeks with my younger sister in town, I was finally able to get back to my computer and finish editing pictures I took of our friends Robert and Angela and the absolutely beautiful Vow Renewal Ceremony they had on their 15th Wedding Anniversary.
For the past couple of months I have been gearing up to shoot my first wedding all by myself. I can’t say that I wasn’t nervous. In fact, I was pretty much a basket case as I laid in bed unable to sleep the night before. However, the morning of the wedding I woke up and felt ready to face the day before me. I grabbed my bag, made sure I had everything I could possibly ever need, and left for a day that I will forever remember as the first wedding I photographed as a solo photographer.
I am so excited for this blog post, as it is a glimpse into my first experience photographing a wedding! I couldn’t be happier than to have shared this first experience with such a wonderful and loving family that I have been blessed to have in my life. When the groom’s older sister, Ashley, approached me about helping her photograph the wedding, I was so honored to be part of the couple’s special day. As the second shooter, I spent most of my time taking behind the scenes photos of the bride and groom getting ready while Ashley focused on the formal shots. Because this was the case, you will not see many “typical” wedding pictures in the blog post. Instead, you will see the little details that will help tell the story of the happiest day of Vince and Hannah’s life.
