So I got the chance to photograph a wedding a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been wanting to try it for well over a year now and I have to say, it wasn’t what I expected. Although I had a fun day and the pictures turned out great, I was so overwhelmed! I don’t know how professionals do it on a weekly basis, I think I definitely need some more practice before I attempt a wedding again!
Being there all day and having to try and capture personal moments, as well as group shots and the obligatory shots such as registry signing or the first dance was really challenging. There’s so much you have to remember, and all while being friendly and professional at the same time. I was lucky enough to know the family who’s wedding I was photographing, so it was nice to not be under too much pressure – however, at times I felt the pressure more so as I didn’t want to let a friend down!
However, I think with a little more practice I could get the hang of it, I quite enjoyed being a part of someone’s day but next time I’ll be more prepared for the stress, pressure and being on my feet all day!
Here’s a few of my favorite pictures from the day…
