Over the summer I received a call from the lovely and talented Miss Becky Parker. She wanted me to shoot the Denhalter wedding with her. I had never shot a wedding; never really wanted to, quite frankly was a little terrified, but I trusted Becky. I knew that if I encountered any problem she would be right there to help me fix it quickly. So, I accepted her offer and was ready to take on the challenge.
I had met half of the wedding party two years prior. The groom and his band were on tour in Florida and during that same tour stop, the band’s van just happened to break down. While they were waiting for it to be repaired, Scott “the future groom” had met this adorable little lady named Kelly. Neither of them expected anything to happen, but it did. Love decided to plant its little seed and grow.
I had a blast shooting the wedding! It was the best experience a first time wedding shooter could have asked for. Good people, good vibes, and lots of love. Not only did I overcome my fear of shooting weddings, but I also learned a few things too..
1. You never know till you try.
2. If it’s meant to be, it will happen.
3. You can’t predict the future…or the weather.
