I had the privilege of shooting my first wedding. My brother and his wife asked me months ago to do the honors. (We all have to start somewhere) So I went to work. I googled. I Pinterested. (Is that a thing?) I looked at the blogs of my favorite photographers. I made lists of photos I wanted to take. And in between the photography research, I also, planned the wedding for my sister-in-law who was finishing up nursing school. (Which she did with flying colors and high honors, so proud!) I was planner/photographer/guest. The big day arrived. I had all my gear ready. They had wanted a backyard barbecue with a pool party at the end. I am delighted to report that is just what they got! We set the whole thing up in my parents backyard. With the amazing talents and help from close family and friends the wedding was a huge success. What follows is a small sampling of the photographs taken. It was a lot of fun. I look forward to photographing another wedding soon!
