Finally had the opportunity to photograph my first wedding! Although, challenging at times I learned a lot about different lenses, posing more people at a time, and using external flash. First off, I would really like to thank Elena and Rob for trusting me with photographing their special day. It was beautiful, and I wish both of you nothing but happiness. Secondly, I would love to thank my lovely cousin for being my second shooter for the wedding. Check out her page on Instagram:
For this being my first wedding, I was obviously nervous but excited for the opportunity. The getting ready shots, are some of my favourite pictures to look at, so naturally I was excited to captured some on the day. Its nice for the couple to look back on these memories and feel the exact same emotions as they felt in those moments.
One of the main things I learned was that unexpected things may occur on the day of the wedding. This day, unfortunately we got rained out of our photo location, and we did not have an indoor location to fall back on. Nice enough, the ____ hotel where the groomsmen were getting ready offered to let us use their hotel lobby for bridal party pictures. After moving around a little bit of furniture, the place worked perfect under the circumstances.
I loved photographing details of the wedding, because I think little things like shoes or table settings can sometimes get lost in our memories. Having the photos of these items brings you right back to those moments, and the beauty of the day.
For candid images I really fell in love with the 70-200mm 1.4 lens. It was my first use of the lens, and I loved the quality, and the versatility. It captured some beautiful raw emotion from the day, and its definitely a lens I would use again.
There was so much love on this day, and I had so much fun being part of it. With that being said, I am really excited to announce the launch of my official wedding packages that meet the needs of different individuals. Thanks to everyone for all the support so far, it truly means a lot. If you have a wedding coming up, message me! I would love to chat!
