These two make me laugh (along with their super fun wedding party)! Until Gina & Bruno I’d never met a couple who loved their dog as much as they do, these guys are crazy about Arnie. When they asked to bring him to the location portion of the day I was quick to agree, but I must admit I was a little nervous…I’m not really a pet person. But Arnie was a great addition to the wedding party, he looked handsome in the cuffs and bow tie Gina made him and he was well behaved (besides kicking dirt on Gina’s dress).
A few weeks ago I came across Created Equal by Mark Laita and I though it was amazing! I think it’s a huge reminder that people’s value doesn’t lie in their looks or occupation…that it’s a person’s character that is most important (feel free to puke a little bit cause I know how cliché that sounds).
Last month I got to shoot Tammy & Nigel’s engagement photos, it was such a fun afternoon! I can’t wait for their wedding next year…it’s going to be a blast.
Some of you may remember last year I hosted a workshop. The idea was that photographers with varying levels of experience would get together and share their experiences, with the hope that through these stories we would all learn and grow in our profession. The workshop went well and I came away with very positive feedback from all the attendees, but the one thing that I didn’t foresee happening was me being stressed! I found the whole day really hard, I was constantly worried thinking ‘are people learning?’, ‘I hope people don’t think I’m dumb for organising this’ or ‘are people having fun?’. Since the workshop I’ve known that I haven’t wanted to run another one because of the stress, but I also haven’t been able to kick this idea of learning through others experiences….that’s why the Mine Is Yours Podcast has been born!
Taking Jessica & Gavin’s wedding photos was like spending the day with old friends, it was easy and full of laughter. These two are an amazing couple, both incredibly intelligent and Gavin brings his hilarious dry sense of humor to their relationship and Jessica her creativity (she made all the bouquets!).
