I’ll even let you hold the remote control.Adam Sandler, The Wedding Singer
I am not a professional photographer. And I am most definitely not a wedding photographer. So when my dear friend Sorcha asked me to photograph her and Dave’s small, casual wedding, I said “no.” Then, after talking it through with Sorcha and setting very clear (and low!) expectations, I said “yes.” I knew there would be lots of challenges including harsh mountain light at the exact time of the ceremony, a tight space with which to work, and the fact that I am not a professional.
Welcome to our Wedding! When I arrived at the house, I was greeted by this lovely sign. I remembered that Sorcha and Dave had a funny sign in their kitchen, and knew it was perfect for the day.
It was a delightful day and a wonderful ceremony. I am honored that Sorcha and Dave think enough of me to ask me to document such an important day in their lives. A professional might have captured more ‘professional’ photos, I think I captured the emotion and depth that Sorcha and Dave were looking for. I was terrified by the experience, but came through it a better photographer. Will I ever do it again? Hell no!
