This past weekend will be one of those “Do you remember when?” stories for Nicola and I. The day started off like any other, rummaging around and gathering all my equipment and double checking it before the wedding. I gathered my things by the door and awaited for her to pick me up to head off to shoot Tyler & Maria’s wedding. Time was getting close and I hadn’t heard from her yet so I was getting a little anxious. She finally showed up and I rushed out to the car, only to find the poor thing sick as a dog. She was balled up in her driver’s seat, and the color was drained from her face. I felt AWFUL for her and started to panic trying to figure out how to help, and what to do about the wedding. Luckily my guy is super awesome and agreed to help me get to the wedding. I sent Nic back home to rest up, and agreed that if she felt better later she’d meet us at Balboa Park to shoot formals for the couple. I made it to the ceremony on time and the day went flawlessly from there on!
The ceremony was unbelievably cute and luckily Nic was able to make it to Balboa after all. But what I can be most grateful for this day was how AWESOME Tyler & Maria were!! These two were just so happy the whole day it was infectious. Not to mention how easy going and unabashedly smitten they were!
Look at how gorgeous their rings AND her bouquet are!!! If I remember right I believe Maria’s sister made her bouquet for her. Didn’t she do an amazing job?!
I had the profound honor of attending my boyfriend’s brother’s wedding a few weeks ago. Although I was not the actual photographer for the wedding I took the liberty to snap off a few rounds while there. It was a beautiful day and fun was had the whole weekend. I can’t thank them and my guy enough to including me in this wonderful event! Here are a few shots I snapped off throughout the day.
Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day and I hope you like these. More can be found on my Flickr page 🙂
A few years ago I attended the most interesting wedding I can recall to date. I didn’t know the couple or their family, and hardly anyone attending. I was invited in from out of town by the maid of honor who had been friends with the bride for as long as either of them could remember. The bride, Jenny, maid of honor, Janitza, the maid’s cousin, Danitza, and myself spent the week leading up to the wedding in a crash course bonding experience, lol. I had been friends with Janitza and Danitza for a few years, but just met Jen for the first time. It was a whirlwind of a week from having to replace Janitza’s dress, the bachelorette party, a close call to standing in as one of the bridesmaid… (since one of them didn’t show up), and giving posing advice to the photographer as well as snapping off a few pics of my own. Now I was not impressed at all with the shots that I had taken of that day, since I wasn’t actually working the wedding, but I did grab this one…
I thought it was really neat and whimsical with all the bubbles floating about as they exited the church. But upon months later a visit with Jen she had asked for any and all photos I have from that day. Apparently the photographer they had hired was more into the party aspect and not so much into the actual working part. My heart sank when she told me that and I kicked myself for not trying harder with the photos I did take, but I gladly showed her what I had and handed them over to her. With any hope she found comfort in them.
So what do you guys think of the shot? Cute? Distracting? Best thing ever? lol I kid.
Shoot ya later
