I’m not a girly girly.  I don’t consider myself to be one, anyway, but lately I’ve been told I’m a blingy chick ((I like chandeliers and shiny things))…. and it’s been pointed out that I own two pairs of sneakers and 16 pairs of heels.  More than half my closet is dresses.  I was a cosmetologist.

But still, I consider myself to be….me, not some girly girly.

I’ve only been to 5 weddings. I’m 23 and I’ve only been to FIVE.  one of them was my own, so does that even count?

The point is – I was asked to shoot four weddings this year.  One of which is in May, one is in June, the only one I turned down is in July ((they asked me over a year ago and I didn’t think I could handle it)) and one is in September.  I’ve only been to four((ish)) weddings…..why do you want me to suddenly be a Wedding Photographer?

I’ve agreed to three.

I’ve shot behind the scenes at two weddings – my sister’s and my sister in law’s.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots that I took from each. All images are shot with my Nikon D40.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to handle an entire wedding.  The first wedding I’ve agreed to I’ll need to rent lights for since it’s in an older church – and the bride has asked me to be with them from 10am-5pm.  I’m also doing her bouquets.

I’ve talked to her about what her expetaions are – she loves light and airy photos, they want to have fun with them, do family photos from both sides and intermingled family photos, have photos of just bride & groom, the bridal party, do a football lineup with the bridal party ((it’s going to kick ass)) and all the normal ones at the reception.

I guess we’ll just see how it goes…. here’s hoping I don’t disappoint!
