I know a lot of photographers who would cringe if anyone asked them to photograph a wedding, me included! Somehow I found myself doing just that, well the prewedding photos anyway. I was really nervous about doing it but as soon as my friend said don’t worry my dad can take some photos, then I thought if that’s the baseline I’ll be okay! I am way better with rocks and trees than people but if happy snaps was it then everything would be alright. These are my happy snaps of Mel’s wedding day morning.
I came away with a few shots I was happy with and hopefully Mel will be also, I am sure a professional would shudder, just lucky I don’t claim to be one 🙂 There was a million things I could have done better on the day, no exaggeration AT least a million! Luckily Mel looked stunning so the pictures would look great just from that perspective!
I don’t like using the flash so tried natural light but at times that wasn’t enough. It was a bit of trial and error on the day knowing I could fix some things in Lightroom later. Luckily it was a nice sunny day.
Anyway its all over now and I can get back to sleeping normally. It went event free from her point of view but mine, I had to make a quick dash to the supermarket to find another SD card (yes I know that should have been a given!) as mine was using up the GBs pretty quickly even though I hadn’t taken a lot of shots. I am not a quick runner so looked quite a sight running through the shopping mall trying to find what I needed in the smallest amount of time. I actually had plenty of time and we arrived at the church about 10 minutes before the bridal party.
Mel had a wonderful wedding and is now happily married and on her way to a new adventure. Me, well back to normal and hopefully now my nights will be wake free knowing I don’t have to do a prewedding again although Mel made it quite easy for me as a happy, stress free bride-to-be.
Fortuitously Eds Sunday Stills, the next challenge: The Letter B this week arrived just a few hours after posting my “Bride” shots so I have included this post in Ed’s challenge.
