This weeked was crazy busy! Spent all day Saturday photographing a wedding. I had been so nervous about the endevour. I am not by any stretch a professional photographer. I am more of a hobbiest. I love taking pictures, but can't imagine a world where anyone would pay me to do it (it would be like being paid to scrapbook- too good to be true). Anyway, a few months ago a friend of the family approached me about doing photos for his wedding. The bride and groom are both pretty young and didn't have a ton of money to pay a professional photographer. They asked if I would do it for a lesser fee. I thought long and hard about this before agreeing. In the end, I agreed to do the photos but told them I was uncomfortable taking any payment. This was a good learning experience for me, so I feel that we all gained something from the experience.
So, over the next few days I will be posting some photos from the wedding. I will also be posting a few projects I helped with to make this wedding a success. I have been friends with the grooms aunt for years- and she hosted the reception. I helped with a few things for the party and will be showing those as well.
