Since I started my photographic journey, I have wondered what it would be like to shoot a wedding. I always knew it would be a bit nerve wrecking to be the person responsible for capturing someone's special day, and do it well. It just so happens my brother-in-law whipped up a wedding and they asked me to be the photographer! At first, in the back of my mind, I was thinking "no way, I won't have that responsibility on me". The bride and groom-to-be put me at ease and said no biggie, just do your best. At the end, obviously I had no choice... my wife told me I had to do it.
Between my father-in-law giving me a pep talk on the morning of the wedding and yelling at us to get out of the house so we can make it on time and my pregnant wife telling me to relax... a guy can get a bit overwhelmed. I was freaking out a bit and was afraid I had left something at the house. I showed up about an hour early and I think people thought I was a bit over the top with the amount of equipment I brought to a wedding at the local register office. Nevertheless, you always need back up equipment right?? Once guests started arriving, I immediately felt my throat dry up, and my heart pumping faster than usual. The bride's dad had some difficulties with the flower shop and arrived 10 minutes late. Naturally, the bride was feeling anxious since we only had 45 minutes to get it all done! Just when it seemed like the day was taking a turn for the worse, her father showed up and the show was on the road. When it was game time, I put on my big boy pants and did what I knew how to do, shoot to my heart's content. They looked great, the bride was beautiful and the groom is just a stud. The rest of the day/night went very well and we had a blast.
