Gettin’ Hitched in Ohio

Filed under no i really do love ohio, photography

I’m leaving for Ohio tonight to visit friends and family, eat all of the fast food in the world, and photograph the wedding of Kim and Jack, two friends introduced to me by my BFF, Tracey. I don’t want to say that this is my first wedding, both because I want you to think I’m a professional and because I helped Jessica shoot Cassie‘s sister’s wedding in Pittsburgh last October. But this is my first time photographing one alone.

I’m totally unprepared for this wedding in that I have no idea what the venue looks like, where I’m allowed and not allowed to stand, and how the service is going to go, but I’m totally prepared for this wedding in that I’m confident Kim and Jack are going to look amazing in every shot. She’s one of the bubbliest people I’ve ever met, and he’s a total James-Dean type of cool guy who doesn’t have a bit of interest in being a model and then he kills it anyway. Here are the engagement photos I shot for them last fall to prove it:

So. Excited. (Slash so-nervous-I-may-faint-at-the-alter.)

    You’re gonna knock this right out of the park. Remember: high f-stops, lots of extra batteries and memory cards, bring business cards with you and wear REALLY comfortable shoes.

    Good luck!

    Ask what you can/cannot do during the rehearsal! Plan shots, figure out good angles, think about what would be great backdrops for group pics. My photographers got most of their structured ideas during the rehearsal and checking out the venue.

    But! You are going to be damn great, lady. I’m so happy for you!

  4. You’re going to do an amazing job, so I guess about all that’s left to do is to wish you a safe trip!

    Those are gorgeous photos and I know you are going to do an amazing job!

  6. Based on all of your other photos I’m sure it went really well and I can’t wait to see the photos!
