Now, I have to talk some Turkey about the other business opportunity. I have completed my first wedding assignment and absolutely fell for the bride, groom and family. My mom came to assist me as my 2nd shooter. She did a great job. She actually captured one of my favorite pictures of the day during the wedding ceremony. I would show it off here in the blog but I don't think I should. The wedding was commissioned by another studio. I agreed to be a contract shooter therefore, those files will become the property of his studio.
Keep that weirdness in mind when I say that somehow I feel like a surrogate. Do you know what I mean? I feel like a surrogate photographer. I knew, going into the wedding assignment, that my mission was to provide my time, talent, & energy toward a wedding that was not my own. I put my heart & soul into a wedding that was not going to be mine. I labored with sweat pouring down. Yes, sweat literally pouring down in the sweltering September (only in the south) outdoor wedding. After all said, and done...I can honestly say I loved it. I loved every minute of it. I fell in love with that wedding. I loved all of the images that Mom and I captured.
