I'm working on a 2013 in review post, but in the meantime I wanted to share a few images from weddings I shot this fall.
Lauren contacted me a few years ago looking for a photography internship. We met up for coffee and chatted a bit. The internship didn't work out but we became friends and I was so honored when she asked me to shoot her wedding. This girl, who's gorgeous inside and out, and her charming (now) husband, Tyler, got married on one of those "threatening to rain any second" South Florida days but the rain held out. I didn't feel the first drop until seconds after I'd shot the last family photo. Perfect, just like their day.
It's amazing what can happen from one little tweet. Early last summer I tweeted some locations that were on my "places to shoot a wedding" bucket list . . . Prague, Ireland, India, Hawaii, and a few others, one of which was the Outer Banks. I've had a minor obsession with the place for a long time now and had never been. My friend Gabe saw my tweet and asked if I wanted to join him to shoot a wedding in the Outer Banks. Let.Me.Get.This.Straight. You are asking me to come shoot a wedding with a mega talented photographer, who shoots film, in the Outer Banks!? Obviously I went. And I knew it would be awesome. What I didn't realize was that it would turn my world on it's side. Who knew shooting film would change the way I feel about photography so much. Honestly, I wanted to do it, just to see if I could. But every once in a while, you have that feeling in your gut when you know something is just right, and that can't be ignored. Film feels right. I cried when Gabe sent me my scans. I was so terrified that none of them would come out, that I would embarrass myself in front of someone I have a lot of respect for. Even worse, that I would let myself down. But I loved them oh so much. Since then I've been shooting more and more film at each wedding and session. I cannot wait to share them.
For now, enjoy this gorgeous wedding in Manteo (pronounced Manny-yo) that I had the pleasure to assist Gabe Aceves on. Thank you Gabe and Sarah from the bottom of my heart. I had such a great time with you both.
