Wedding photography is so not my thing, but every so often someone asks me to shoot their wedding. I find weddings stressful for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that you get one shot at it, and that's all. I generally resist doing weddings and offer suggestions for other photographers who actually like the work and do it for a living.
This was a little different since I wasn't actually shooting the wedding, just my step-daughter in her dress - she wanted to be sure she had some photos she liked. It's a whole different thing to do this where there's no pressure, no stress and we can shoot whenever and wherever we like.
I don't know if she'll like the photos, but I like them. (Actually, that's not true...she did tell me she loved what she saw of the photos in the back of my camera). She's a beautiful young woman and it was fun to do this with her. Hmmm...maybe I'll have to do this more often. And then again, maybe not.
She'll be a beautiful bride, that much is for sure.
