This is not a political post. No election rant, no complaining. This is about the friends who challenge you.
This is my wonderful friend who recently got married. We were able to have a bridal photo session the night before she got married. All the bridesmaids stayed in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast! Isn't this just a fabulous room? Perfect for a bridal photo.
Anyway, she asked, naturally, if I would be the photographer at her wedding. I don't do weddings for the public but if I love you very much I will do your wedding photos. Weddings are stressful just as a general rule, but to be the wedding photographer is especially stressful to me because I care about how the pictures turn out and I stress about capturing and presenting the bride in the best possible light and pose. It's in my head . . . I know it's unrealistic but I stress none the less. The bride joked at the time that she was going to challenge me to be the wedding photographer AND be in the wedding! Because I love her, yes there I am in the wedding . . . camera (and matching camera strap) around my neck.
Also . . . as you can tell Santa shot the ceremony pictures because I was IN the wedding. Big thanks to him for all his work!
Big Congratulations to the happy couple!
