You guys know I photograph weddings, right?
Duh. How about I say something more obvious.
Well, did you know I sometimes blog about the weddings I photograph?
Of cours–Wait… WHAT?!?
Look, we all are aware of the fact that my ability to NOT blog about the weddings I photograph is the stuff of epic legend. In fact, I’m pretty sure Ridley Scott is optioning a movie about it as we speak. Russell Crowe will star.
Blogging just isn’t my strong suit. Not for lack of desire. (Or lack of things to say, as those who know me will confirm.)
So here goes. An honest to goodness wedding post. And what a doozy I have for you here.
I first “met” Ellen back in the days when I lived a the Meadowlark coffee shop. I tossed the quotes around met because her shift didn’t often coincide with when I hung out. So even though I knew she could make a pretty mean latte, I didn’t know her as well as some of the other baristas.
I also saw James at the ‘Lark pretty frequently.
When they approached me to photograph their wedding, I was pretty excited. I mean, for one thing, they are a pretty fun and photogenic couple. But I also had a good idea of some of the people likely to show up to their wedding…and a fun crowd makes for fun photos.
I shot this (along with the ever talented Ben Bird as my second) awhile ago, so I don’t remember all of the details, but here’s what I can tell you:
1. James is a ham.
2. This was a cold day in Nebraska City.
3. Photo booths can get a little…weird.
We’ll kick things off with their engagement session before moving on to the wedding.
As always, feel free to leave a comment below.
And I’ll be honest here: My best intentions and reality aren’t always similar when it comes to this blog. I’d like to say this is the start of more frequent updates. But let’s just enjoy this for the gift that it is and hope for the best.
