Everyone that I know is always super busy during December! Especially so as Christmas gets closer and closer!!!
We are no different!!! December. Is. Crazy. for us!!! It seems to be even more crazy as we try not to make it crazy!!! Sound familiar to anyone?!?! The more you say 'No, I'm sorry, we can't come." the more you feel guilty about it and try to make it work and go anyway and end up being exhausted for the whole month that was supposed to be focused on just family....
WOW...that might have been a little venting there. Sorry!!
Anyway, our December was very busy as per our usual...
At some point as I was asked if I could do someone a favor and I immediately said, "YES!!!" There was no, "I need to check my schedule." No, "I'm sorry, I wont be able to." No, "Let me check that date." Nope...none of that!!!
Someone had asked me to photograph their wedding!!!! Squeeee!!!
Let me be clear here....I do not "do weddings". This was a very personal favor to some wonderful people which happen t be friends of mine. This is not a venue that I will be embracing. This is not where my heart is. This is, however, where I found myself on the evening of DECEMBER 23rd, 2016!!!!!!
Side note here....on the 13th or 14th my brother asked me for a favor. He lives 4 hours away from me and never needs help with anything so of course, I said yes, I'll can do that!! So on December 21 I drove up to his town, we had dinner at a very nice restaurant, the next day was when he needed my help the most, on Friday December 23rd I drove home (remember...4 hour drive!) took a nap and went to shoot my very first wedding!!! True story!!!
Crazy December!!!! O.o
Such a simple, beautiful wedding!!!
Meet Mr. & Mrs. F. .... along with our Pastor and his lovely wife!!
Happy Wedding Day J. & D.!!!!
I am so very honored that you trusted me to capture these moments for you!!!
Love to you both!!
PROPS to ALL wedding photographers!!! Even for this simple wedding I took nearly 500 (not a typo) photos (most likely because I had never done one!!)!! I cannot imagine your processing time and effort and huge production weddings!!! You guys rock!!!! (and you guys can have ALL the weddings!!!) hahahhaaha!!!!
