So I finally get to post some of my photos from Beth and Joe’s wedding and as I’ve already mentioned a couple of blogs ago, this was a tough learning experience for me as a photographer. One that made me realize yes, I am improving but wow, do I have a ways to go.
So with that brief little recap out of the way, let me power on and talk a little bit about the Bride, Beth and her Groom, Joe.
The first time I actually got to meet both Beth and Joe was the evening before their wedding. I arrived at the house of Beth’s parents which was bursting at the seams with family and friends, all helping to pull together last minute arrangements and details for the couples big day. The atmosphere was chaotic, but it was the type of chaos being fueled by nervous energy and complete excitement. Everyone was pumped and everyone was ready for the wedding day.
In the middle of all the excitement, both Beth and Joe noticed my arrival and within seconds they were over, smiling widely, embracing and bearing hugging me like I was a good friend they hadn’t seen in years. This couple is amazing. Hearts so big and bursting with love and kindness. But it didn’t end there. Once Beth was done welcoming me the rest of her family took over. Again more bear hugs and declarations of how excited everyone one was to meet me and have as part of their day. Honestly, at one point I was on the verge of tearing up. Being surrounded by so much love, concern and kindness with a dash of some sibling bickery was making me miss my own family terribly. But thats just the kind of people they are, nobody, and I mean nobody, is a stranger. Their home is a home to anyone who crosses its threshold.
And now that I’ve shared how much I loved being around this amazing couple and their family I will get to the part where we check out the photos.

So what should I do, cross them? Bad idea, gives the impression of guarded, hostility or attitude.
How about I put them in my pocket? You know, like I'm just chillin and everything is cool. But no pockets in this skirt. Damn it.
Something to hold. A pen, a file, a phone, a bottle of water, something, anything, seriously, I need my hands to stop looking and feeling like foreign objects. They're exposing my inner turmoil and making me look like all kinds of negative.
Hands need to get onboard and start pulling together as a team. Separating themselves and behaving in an erratic, random and unfocused manner is just making me look insecure and guilty of something.

- I've never been to Michigan and anyone I talk to who is from there, never has a good thing to say about the place. I hear all kinds of negative stuff, so I'm super excited to see first hand why the place who gave us Axel Foley (from Beverly Hills Cop fame), 8 Mile, the Great Lakes and of course all those automobiles, gets such a bad rap.
- I'm helping shoot a wedding. Yes. Really, REALLY, super excited and SUPER nervous about getting an opportunity to be Second Shooter at a wedding taking place this Saturday in the town of Canton. I swear, I'm in the middle of packing right now and I must have checked my equipment like a 1000 times already. Lens, memory cards, chargers, camera, camera bag, check, check, check. One more time, just to be sure. Ok, I think I have it all. Let me just run through it one last time. Hard to tell from that how nervous I am, right?
