Taking a break from playing blog/session catch up with you all, I'm going to share a personal update. This past November, I married my love of 9.5 years. It's a good part of why I'm playing catch up. Photographing weddings holds NOTHING to planning and executing your own wedding! It seems that no matter how organized you try to be, it never seems like enough. But we survived and I'm finally getting back to a sense of normalcy again.
Can you guess the most common question people asked me during the planning? Yup, "Who's going to shoot YOUR wedding?!" Luckily, a friend from high school, Brian G. Lee, has developed both talent and skill photographing weddings, and I placed that responsibility into his hands. On top of that, my friends and family are peppered with cameras and talent so I am blessed to have images of our day rained down on us.
I, of course, figured out a way to take photos at my own wedding! (Yes, roll your eyes as you should.) My husband and I shot some photos of ourselves for our wedding invitations which we had custom designed by the AWESOME S.C. Watson Illustration (I will have to blog about him in the very near future.) I picked out one of those photos to create a cardboard cutout of ourselves so that our guests could pose with "us" at our photo station. I liked it so much, that I'm going to start offering a manned version as a wedding/party add on. Here are a few of the shots from the photo station.
It was a great time and there were plenty of props to play with. If you're interested in something like this for your event, reach out and let me know. Your guests will appreciate the end results and so will you.
