Photographing a wedding is near the peak of stress and anxiety for me. You get one shot at this. Add some extra anxiety when the groom is an outstanding photographer himself.
It’s enough to explode my brain.
Thankfully, Aaron and Sheena are laid back, sweet and relentlessly supportive. I lost count of how many times I heard, “We’re really glad you are here doing this.”
One of the benefits of being the wedding photographer is being roped into the family’s little circle, if even for just an evening. You get to see people at their mushiest, gleefully emotional selves, and that’s a splendid break from the ordinary. It often makes the anxiety go away and as the photographer you start having fun, enjoying the people and then the photos start coming easy and naturally.
Then you wake up the next morning sore and tired, but happy you were able to see two people start a life together. That’s pretty dang cool.
On to the photos. Dig on that location – Boojum Tree Hidden Garden. Just say “boojum,” it’s fun. Also, check out the custom-made cake topper.
