So, it’s been pointed out to me recently that my blog is looking more like a shrine to my children and less a place of business. It’s cool. People like to see actual CLIENTS and not my totally adorable, cherubic little darlings. I get it. I’m just really, really great at keeping up with the needs of my clients, not so great at making time for the blog. I keep up with my Life Stories posts because I have a ring of photographers who would come after me with torches and pitch forks, should I miss a post and screw up the circle! (Love you all!! Don’t hurt me…) Anyway, I was looking over wedding images shot this weekend with my dear friend Jenica of Lemon Drops Photography. Love that chick. I decided to edit a few favs. Then, I decided I’d be totally crazy-like and actually POST them. On my blog. A place for CLIENT images! (Be warned, my Life Stories series will still be posted on Friday…and it will contain multiple pics of my angels)
Now, a couple things about these. #1, this beautiful bride kept saying over and over, “I feel so awkward. I’m just not natural in front of a camera!” I think nearly every bride I’ve shot has said this. You know what, you are STUNNING on your wedding day. Stunning! Please don’t ever stress about being awkward or looking anything less than completely amazing. It’s our job as photographers to shoot you in a manner that flatters you #2, when I meet prospective brides, they thumb through images and say things like, “Well, my venue is not nearly as gorgeous as this!!” I’m telling you right now that most of the images you see below were shot in the corner of a church basement. Seriously. #3, I obviously have some serious love for bridals because those are always the first images I edit!
