The 2011 Wedding Photography season, for me, has officially started! This Saturday was the first wedding of the season, and if the rest of the shoots I do are anything like it, I’m excited for a fantastic wedding season. The bride was full of life and spirit and extremely happy, and the groom was her perfect match.
I felt honored to do this wedding for a few reasons. Firstly because it was my first Jehovah’s Witness wedding. One thing I love about doing wedding photography is that I get to experience all sorts of different types of ceremonies. I’m someone who likes to learn, so anytime I get to do a new type of ceremony, I get all excited. And secondly because the bride actually selected me to do her photos even though there was a family friend who would do them for free. This family friend is actually a photographer in another state, but the bride preferred my photos over the friend’s and THAT was the biggest honor to me. That she loved my photography so much that she fought to have me do her wedding day.
If you’re looking for a Vermont wedding photographer, make sure you find one that you love, even if it means having to pay for your photographer instead of getting your photos done for free. A family member of mine had their photos done for free by someone who didn’t know what they were doing, and now they’ll never have the beautiful photos of their wedding day that they wanted. So always get the photographer whose work speaks to you!
