That time I photographed a wedding...

Just to be clear... I am not a professional photographer. However, I love to take pictures. When I lived in Missouri and worked with the youth at our church I developed a very special relationship with an amazing young woman. Really, her family became my family. She and I used to go on photo adventures together, and we shared a great love for photography. These are some of my best Missouri memories!

So, last year, when this amazing young woman was planning her wedding she asked me to take her photos. I was both honored and terrified of the idea, ha! I knew it would mean a lot to both of us for me to do it, though. It was the most difficult, exciting, stressful, beautiful, happy day ever! I loved doing it, but swore I would never do it again! Until my niece asked me! Sooooo.... now I am off to photograph another wedding this weekend. Of course part of preparing that was looking back through the photos from last summer. Here are a few of my favorites (there were so many to choose from!!!):





 








 
There were so.many.more pictures! And this didn't even include getting ready or the reception, ha! But it is good to look back at these and remember that day! This weekend I pray we have favorable weather and my niece has a wonderful wedding day! I will do my best to capture it! I haven't even seen the location yet, so I am also praying for good light! Being an amateur photographer with amateur gear makes the low light situations hard!! The ceremony and the reception at this wedding were both a bit darker than my camera was prepared for, but we made it work! Maybe this time I will catch a break there!
