Last fall, I had the privilege of traveling to Washington to photograph my second cousin’s wedding in Tacoma. For me, shooting weddings is an intense but rewarding challenge. It is a full day (or two) of staying creative and energetic while adapting to constantly changing situations and sticking to a tight schedule. I don’t usually work with a second shooter so my attention is split between watching for fun moments and documenting details in the decor. I put pressure on myself to capture things during the day that the couple couldn’t experience, so they can find some surprises in the pictures later. In Tacoma, we were blessed with great weather and the venue was very fun to work in. I also got to re-introduce myself to some relatives from Minnesota and North Dakota who hadn’t seen me since I was about three feet tall.
Belated congratulations to Justine and Warren! I hope to see you both again soon.
