There is a first for everything. A first kiss, a first dance… an aspiring photographer’s first wedding shoot! Gulp.
Perhaps I didn’t prepare myself for how scary it would be to take photos when you have very little control over the unfolding day. Taking pictures is one thing, taking pictures hanging onto the back of a freight train is another.
Despite all the first time jitters I knew that Amber and Garrett were going to be great to work with. From the moment I met them and their families I felt like I was in the presence of friends and they made it very easy for me to be myself. The day was filled with the easy love the couple so obviously felt for each other.
I am very thankful that Amber and Garrett had faith to trust in a ‘newbie’ to capture one of the biggest days of their lives. I hope I managed to do their day some justice. One thing I know for sure is that if you don’t challenge yourself and do the things that you fear most, you will never learn how great you can be.
And now for the photos…
