This summer I had the opportunity to shoot another wedding! This wedding holds the distinction of being the first I have been hired to do by someone I had no prior connection to. It was neat to get to know the couple in our first meeting and, finally, capture the joy they felt on their wedding day.
Although some rain drove the wedding ceremony indoors, we were still able to go out and get some great pictures afterward. (This was especially fortunate as the venue was in a beautiful green golf course on a lake.) The wedding was intimate, which made it particularly special to the bride and groom. I learned a lot about how to keep the shot list flexible and still catch all of the moments that were important to the couple. Since the wedding was so small, it was also the first one I shot without any assistant. To be honest, I was a little concerned about that, but I had no need to be. We had figured out all of the details ahead of time that gave me plenty of wiggle room, even without the help of a second shooter.
Now, all I have left to do is to wish the new Mr. and Mrs. Thomas many happy years together!
