My First Wedding.

Quite a few months ago, I was asked by a dear friend to capture her wedding. Some complications had left her without a proper photographer (he bailed), and she was in high need of one. However, since I had never, ever photographed a wedding before, fear took over. I quickly responded to her request by politely declining, and urging her to find someone else, while visions of me ruining the most special day of her life with horrid "snapshots" paraded through my head.

After a few emails of her insisting that she believe I could deliver just the kind of shots she wanted, I conceded. In the days that followed, and up until the wedding, I scoured every wedding photography website, blog, forum, magazine, picture, and tutorial I could find. I was determined to produce the most beautiful, elegant, and professional-esque photographs that I could.

While I will probably never be 100% happy with my work, the Bride and Groom seemed somewhat pleased, and as of yet, have not sent a flaming bag of poop to my door. I take that as a good sign.

Below are just a few highlights from the Wood/Catalano Wedding, 2011.
